Abstract

Providing outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) following hospitalization for an acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD) has been found to improve exercise capacity, quality of life and a reduction in unplanned hospital admissions and mortality.1 These positive effects, although studied in the short term, have led to national and international guidelines supporting the provision of post-exacerbation PR (PEPR).2,3 However, uptake is poor with less than 10% of hospital discharges for AECOPD completing PEPR.4 We therefore considered whether it would be effective to delay PR for patients who have recently been hospitalized for their AECOPD.
