This chapter discusses pulmonary rehabilitation, a multidisciplinary program for caring for patients with chronic respiratory impairment. This program is individually tailored and specifically designed to address the needs of each patient and to assure delivery of optimized physical and social performance, and autonomy to each patient. Although initially met with doubt, pulmonary rehabilitation has established its significance and importance in the care of patients with chronic respiratory disease. In the chapter, the components and paradigm of pulmonary rehabilitation program, the benefits of rehabilitation, and the effects of rehabilitation on dyspnoea are considered and examined.
