Description

Therapeutic strategies in COPD is a new title dedicated to helping doctors improve the quality of life of patients suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

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. This book is made up of several sections--each devoted to a specific group of drugs. These sections are in turn divided into two parts--the first 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.
