Along with regular medications, pulmonary rehabilitation is an integral part in the management of such conditions to alleviate the suffering. This paper is an attempt to give an overview of the programme and its benefits. There is description about various components, staffing, setting, details about preprogramme evaluation, the programme per se and postprogramme follow up. This review is oriented largely towards how to run the programme in a resource poor setting.
