Aspects of disease prevention, including lifestyle change, particularly smoking cessation, are discussed in detail. Acute exacerbations of COPD, currently a major cause of mortality and morbidity in these patients, are also examined. Illustrative 'real-life' case histories have been included to emphasise the practical focus throughout, and the book also incorporates 'interesting asides', for example describing the impact of COPD in a patient undergoing surgery for another condition."--BOOK JACKET." ;
