In brief: See below

Pulmonary rehabilitation is a term used for a series of exercises and interventions used for people with lung disease.
The goals are to help someone with lung disease have more physical endurance and deal with the symptoms of shortness of breath which is often chronic. I have seen it be a valuable adjunct to other medical therapies such as medication.
