Abstract

Chronic respiratory diseases are associated with severe, not only pulmonary, but also systemic damage such as dysfunction of peripheral muscles, dysfunction of respiratory muscles, nutritional disorders, cardiac injuries, skeletal disorders, sensory debilities, and psychological dysfunction. Mechanisms of these injuries are many and different. Pulmonary recovery (PR) is an integral part of clinical therapy in patients with chronic respiratory disease who continue to be symptomatic or continue to have pulmonary function depression, regardless of standard medical treatment.
