Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the most common diseases in the developed world, and a major cause of morbidity and mortality. As there is no cure, many doctors assume they can do little for patients presenting with this distressing condition, but in fact, new pharmacological therapies giving symptomatic relief and management techniques such as pulmonary rehabilitation can greatly improve patients' quality of life. This book, written by a respiratory specialist in accessible Q and A format provides up-to-date, evidence-based information to enable the primary care practitioner to better understand and treat patients with COPD. It will provide authoritative information for family doctors, patients and their carers, in an attractive and easy to read presentation.
