  1. Median evolution of exercise capacities, quality of life and psychological characteristics after pulmonary rehabilitation for the 47 patients who completed the pulmonary rehabilitation program according to baseline WHO performance status. 6MWT: 6-min walk test distance [10], 6MST steps: number of steps in the 6-min stepper test [11], TUG: timed Up and Go test [12], 10CS: ten chair stands [13], VSRQ: visual simplified respiratory questionnaire global score ranging from 80 (best health status) to 0 (poorest health status) [15], HAD: Hospital Anxiety and Depression scale ranging from 0 (best psychological status) to 42 (worse psychological status) [17]. Results are given as medians with interquartile ranges
