A summary of research published in the European Respiratory Journal
The Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) has published a new guide outlining a global strategy for the prevention, diagnosis and management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
The report is one of the key resources in the field of COPD. It is updated every few years to include the latest research. This year’s report represents a major update, suggesting significant changes to how COPD is treated.
What’s new in this year’s report?
Why is this important?
The new report presents an opportunity to reconsider the diagnosis, management and treatment of COPD. It puts an emphasis on spotting COPD at an earlier stage, rather than waiting until the condition has progressed. In addition, the report summarises how we can better understand the causes and origin of COPD. This will help group the condition into different categories and enable better strategies to prevent the condition in the future.
