    The third edition of the ABC of COPD gives the entire multidisciplinary team across both primary and secondary care an up-to-date, easy-to-read and accessible account of this common lung disorder. Thoroughly updated by experienced clinicians who encounter patients with COPD on a regular basis, it discusses the entire breadth of the condition from epidemiology, through causes, diagnosis and treatment to end-of-life-care.    This practical and highly visual guide contains new and extensively updated chapters on diagnosis, smoking cessation and interventional approaches, as well as expanded content on non-pharmacological and pharmacological management, taking into account the most recent national and international guidelines. It also explores practical issues relating to COPD in terms of pulmonary rehabilitation, oxygen use, air travel, and end-of-life care. Its 136 pages are divided into 16 chapters covering: Definition Epidemiology and Risk Factors; Pathology and Pathogenesis; Diagnosis; Spirometry; Smoking Cessation; Non-pharmacological Management; Pharmacological Management (Inhaled Treatment and Oral Treatment); Drug Delivery Devices; Surgical and Interventional Strategies; Oxygen; Exacerbations; Ventilatory Support; Primary Care; Death, Dying and End-of-Life Issues, and Future Treatments.

    The ABC of COPD is an authoritative and essential guide for specialist nurses, general practitioners, physiotherapists, junior doctors, front-line staff working in emergency departments, paramedics, physician associates, and students of medicine and its allied disciplines.
