Patients with very severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) conduct their everyday lives under shortness of breath. The aim of this study was to explore telemediated exercise training to patients at home, with the conduct of everyday life as a theoretical framework. Based on ethnographic fieldwork involving a hospital, two municipalities, and homes of 11 patients from 2013 to 2017, this article shows how telemediated training became part of patients' and partners' everyday lives and the prioritization of time and resources for basic activities. Most of the patients found telemediated training meaningful, that it can work as an agent of hope in holding on to essential everyday life activities, but also that it may be experienced as burdensome and disciplining. The physiotherapists' understanding of the patients' circumstances and needs for rehabilitation changed. The article argues that telemediated training should be offered as part of a palliative approach for those severely affected by COPD.
