    Abnormal heart rate recovery (HRR) after exercise, a marker of cardiac autonomic dysfunction, is associated with poor prognosis in various populations. As chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is associated with cardiac autonomic dysfunction, we tested the hypothesis that patients with COPD have a lower HRR than healthy people, and evaluated whether a delay in HRR is associated with an increased risk of mortality in COPD. The records of 147 COPD patients were reviewed (65.179.1 years, mean7SD, 42 women/105 men, forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1): 42715% predicted) and compared to 25 healthy subjects (61.674.5 years, 5 women/20 men, FEV1: 100714% predicted) during recovery after an exercise test. Heart rate was measured at peak exercise and at 1-min recovery, the difference between the two being defined as HRR (1179 beats in COPD patients vs. 2079 beats in healthy subjects, Po0:0001). During a mean follow-up of 43.1722.0 months, 32 patients died. Abnormal HRR (p14 beats) was a strong predictor of mortality in COPD patients (adjusted hazard ratio: 5.12, 95% CI [1.54–17.00]). In conclusion, COPD patients have a lower HRR than healthy subjects, and have a worse prognosis when presenting abnormal HRR
