Pulmonary rehabilitation programmes are a fundamental part of the clinical management of patients with chronic respiratory diseases. This comprehensive reference book places pulmonary rehabilitation within the wider framework of respiratory disease. Now in six parts, it includes new sections on the development of PR as a discipline, global perspectives on quality control, new chapters on early PR post exacerbation and personalized rehabilitation, innovative approaches to exercise, PR in interstitial lung disease and lung transplantation, and the latest research into the application of music, dance and yoga.
- Global contributions compare practice around the world where differences have developed.
- New six Part structure covers new approaches to exercise testing, interstitial lung diseases and other diseases, and add-on interventions drawing on new technologies.
- Contains recommendations of the large collaborative ERS/ATS task forces on guidelines for PR as well as suggested policies for its implementation and use.
- Covers the important topic of balance impairment as a focus of rehabilitation for the at-risk patient and a new chapter on monitoring physical activity.
- The voices of patients and caregivers describe the impact of chronic respiratory disease on their lives.
- Features an exclusive chapter on COVID-19 that discusses the short- and long-term pathophysiological consequences, provides information about the potential role of physiotherapy in the management of hospitalized patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19, and details on who, where, and how to deliver programs to COVID-19 and non COVID-19 patients in the lockdown and post lockdown era.

The second edition of "Pulmonary Rehabilitation", by CF Donner, N Ambrosino and RS Goldstein deals with the most recent innovations in the field such as new approaches to exercise training, namely whole-body vibrations and water-based rehabilitation. A section on the management of lung transplantation, as well as the role of pulmonary rehabilitation in intensive and critical care settings, is undoubtedly providing further insights on these specific arguments. The chapter on COVID-19, the personalized approach to and the role of pulmonary rehabilitation in palliative care are examples of novelties in the field. Professionals seeking to improve their specific knowledge on pulmonary rehabilitation should have this book on their bookcase and when reading it, thinking about the significant value of human cooperation. Looking at the contributors of this edition, we are in the presence of recognized clinical experts in their field, and we stand proudly with them in appreciating their work.

The second edition of Pulmonary Rehabilitation edited by Donner, Ambrosino, and Goldstein is a welcome, timely, and comprehensive reference that draws upon an international roster of experts and rising stars in pulmonary rehabilitation. This book will prove to be an excellent source of information for both practitioners and investigators with extensive documentation and timely references focused on new reports since publication of the first edition in 2005. Topics span the past, present, and future horizons of this rapidly emerging field, and are particularly relevant to the transformational changes in the world and in healthcare resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Of particular interest in the COVID-19 era that seriously compromised traditional outpatient programs is the discussion of new approaches to expand the reach of pulmonary rehabilitation to the home and via the potential use of telerehabilitation, and even a timely chapter on pulmonary rehabilitation in patients recovering from COVID-19. Overall, this book is well worthwhile as a reference for current pulmonary rehabilitation practices as well as for new ideas and horizons in this rapidly emerging field.
