Conclusion

Our pilot randomized trial identified no statistically significant improvement in exercise capacity, symptoms or quality of life with pulmonary rehabilitation after exacerbations. This pilot data suggests that any benefits of pulmonary rehabilitation in this setting are likely to be too small to be clinically meaningful.
