How to Treat quiz: COPD

Relevance to General Practice

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common condition frequently managed by GPs. 
COPD is a common disease in Australia and is the second leading cause of avoidable hospital admissions and a significant cause of both morbidity and mortality. 
Diagnosis is clinical, based on symptoms, examination and a spirometric obstructive ventilatory defect. Treatment is determined by disease severity, impact of symptoms on quality of life and exacerbation risk. 
Recent research has allowed the introduction of many new therapies and instigated a significant change in treatment strategies, increasing the use of long-acting anti-muscarinic and beta adrenergic inhalers.
