The MRC breathlessness scale is widely used to describe patient cohorts and stratify them for interventions such as pulmonary rehabilitation in COPD. Please see above Scale.
Pulmonary Rehab is designed for people diagnosed with a lung condition who are breathless. Your PR team will be made up of trained health care professionals such as physiotherapists, nurses and occupational therapists. A course of PR usually lasts 6 to 8 weeks, with 2 sessions of about 2 hours each week. You’ll be in a group of about 8-16 people. PR courses are held in local hospitals, community halls, leisure centres and health centres
