Abstract

Enhancing the recovery of patients undergoing Thoracic Surgery is the raison d'être of a pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) process. Benefits of a PR program have been shown to include reduced postoperative complications, hospital length of stay (LOS) and improved exercise and lung function parameters. Identifying which groups of patients benefit most and the constituency of the perfect PR program is subject to ongoing research. Providing PR to patients in a manner acceptable to their lifestyle and disease timeline within economic limitations is the challenge.
