Appropriate for the clinician managing COPD in either the primary or secondary care setting, Clinicians' Guide to COPD considers epidemiology, diagnosis and management, concentrating on how patients really present to the clinician. Aspects of disease prevention, including lifestyle change, particularly smoking cessation, are discussed in detail. Acute exacerbations of COPD, currently a major cause of mortality and morbidity in these patients, are also examined. Illustrative 'real-life' case histories have been included throughout, and the book also incorporates 'interesting asides', for example the impact of COPD on a patient awaiting surgery. With its practical focus, a balanced, readable style and clear explanatory colour illustrations, this book provides invaluable advice for both the primary care and specialist clinician looking after patients with COPD.
