Managing COPD with Inhaler Devices

How finding the right device for each patient is crucial treating this irreversible condition, plus more!

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the fourth leading cause of death and the twelfth leading cause of morbidity in the United States. Patients with COPD will have to undergo treatment for decades, as this is a chronic and irreversible disease.

Managing this respiratory disease can involve a range of possible treatments, including bronchodilators, corticosteroids, oxygen supplementation, antibiotics, immunizations, and rehabilitative measures.

The cover story of this month's issue looks at how inhaler devices can also play a critical role in the management of that disease.
