“We hope this will raise awareness at admission that patients might have COPD. If these individuals get proper treatment early on, they have better functioning and quality of life,” says Gwendolen Buhr, MD, CMD. Dr. Buhr is referencing the recently released COPD Management Pocket Guide, a quick reference tool to help with the recognition, assessment, treatment, and monitoring of COPD, with information adapted from the GOLD initiative for the condition and the Society’s clinical practice guideline (CPG). The guide also includes an Algorithm for Pharmacological Treatment of COPD.
