Book Details


Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a name for any disorder that persistently obstructs breathing. Two diseases are involved in most cases of COPD: chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Both cause permanent damage to the lungs; but effective treatment can prevent further damage. Therapeutic strategies in COPD is a new title dedicated to helping doctors improve the quality of life of patients suffering from this disease. The book is made up of several sections each devoted to a specific group of drugs. These sections are in turn divided into two parts, focusing on the basic mechanisms of action and pharmacology, and the second on therapeutic applications and treatment strategies. Each chapter features tables and graphs illustrating key points, trial results and therapeutic protocols. Therapeutic strategies in COPD will be hugely useful to physicians and other health professionals seeking to improve their skills in managing patients with COPD
