About

Data from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients awaiting lung transplantation which performed a pulmonary rehabilitation program will be analyzed retrospectively. Acute exacerbations occur frequently in these patients and have a major impact on the course of the disease. This study investigates the prevalence and the impact of acute exacerbations during pulmonary Rehabilitation in patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients awaiting lung Transplantation that continued the Rehabilitation program despite an acute exacerbation. Data will be taken from the internal database of the reference center (Schoen Klinik Berchtesgadener Land, Schoenau, Germany) where these data were collected during clinical routine.
