DESCRIPTION This guideline is an official statement of the American College of Physicians (ACP), American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), American Thoracic Society (ATS), and European Respiratory Society (ERS). It represents an update of the 2007 ACP clinical practice guideline on diagnosis and management of stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and is intended for clinicians who manage patients with COPD. This guideline addresses the value of history and physical examination… Expand

Prevention of acute exacerbations of COPD: American College of Chest Physicians and Canadian Thoracic Society Guideline.
TLDR
This guideline is unique because it provides an up-to-date, rigorous, evidence-based analysis of current randomized controlled trial data regarding the prevention of COPD exacerbations. Expand
The Importance of Appropriate Diagnosis in the Practical Management of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
TLDR
An understanding is provided of the importance of an appropriate diagnosis in the real-world management of COPD and the need to provide appropriate management based on COPD guidelines. Expand
Guideline adherence in management of stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
TLDR
It was found that patients co-managed by a PCP and pulmonologist had a higher likelihood of receiving guideline-concordant treatment than those managed by one or the other (Odds Ratio: 4.59; 95% Confidence Interval: 2.92, 7.22, p < 0.001). Expand
Diagnosis and Outpatient Management of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: A Review
TLDR
COPD is a complicated disease requiring intensive treatment, and Appropriate use of long-acting maintenance bronchodilators, inhaled corticosteroids, and pulmonary rehabilitation decreases symptoms, optimizes functional performance, and reduces exacerbation frequency. Expand
Home Oxygen Therapy for Adults with Chronic Lung Disease. An Official American Thoracic Society Clinical Practice Guideline
TLDR
These guidelines provide the basis for evidence-based use of home oxygen therapy in adults with COPD or ILD but also highlight the need for additional research to guide clinical practice. Expand
Diagnosis, Prevention and Treatment of Stable COPD and Acute Exacerbations of COPD: The Swiss Recommendations 2018
TLDR
Recommendations for evidence-based preventive measures, as well as pharmacological and non-pharmacological strategies for the management of both stable and acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are provided in this update. Expand
Executive summary: prevention of acute exacerbation of COPD: American College of Chest Physicians and Canadian Thoracic Society Guideline.
TLDR
Exacerbations are to COPD what myocardial infarctions are to coronary artery disease: They are acute, trajectory-changing, and often deadly manifestations of a chronic disease. Expand
Issues in pulmonary function testing for the screening and diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
TLDR
It is impossible to have accurate screening results for COPD based on lung function tests alone, and clinical respiratory symptoms should be taken into consideration in terms of the diagnosis and management of COPD, as well as in any screening trial or programme that is to be attempted or implemented. Expand
Office Spirometry in Primary Care for the Diagnosis and Management of COPD: National Lung Health Education Program Update
TLDR
The role of spirometry for screening and case finding in COPD as well as for asthma is reviewed, with standardization guidelines from the American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society published in 2005 providing a robust framework. Expand
Diagnosis and Management of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: The Swiss Guidelines
TLDR
The new Swiss Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Guidelines are based on a previous version, which was published 10 years ago, and aim is to advise pulmonary physicians, general practitioners and other health care workers on the early detection and diagnosis, prevention, best symptomatic control, and avoidance of COPD as well as its complications and deterioration.

Diagnosis and Management of Stable Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: A Clinical Practice Guideline from the American College of Physicians
TLDR
This guideline grades the evidence and recommendations by using the American College of Physicians' clinical practice guidelines grading system adopted from the classification developed by the Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development, and Evaluation workgroup. Expand
Management of Stable Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: A Systematic Review for a Clinical Practice Guideline
TLDR
This review extends the search related to COPD therapies through March 2007 by using search terms used in a 2003 review by Sin and colleagues to identify randomized, controlled trials (RCTs), controlled clinical trials, meta-analyses, and reviews published since the completion of their search in 2002. Expand
Pulmonary rehabilitation following exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
TLDR
Evidence from small studies of moderate methodological quality suggests that pulmonary rehabilitation is a highly effective and safe intervention to reduce hospital admissions and mortality and to improve health-related quality of life in COPD patients after suffering an exacerbation. Expand
Can moderate chronic obstructive pulmonary disease be diagnosed by historical and physical findings alone?
TLDR
D diminished breath sounds were the best predictor of moderate COPD and a sequential increase in sensitivity and a minimal decrease in specificity occurred when the quality of breath sounds was added first to the medical history, followed by the peak flow result. Expand
Diagnosis of obstructive airways disease from the clinical examination
AbstractObjective: To determine the operating characteristics of history and physical examination items for pulmonary airflow obstruction. Design: Prospective observational study. Setting: MedicalExpand
Use of spirometry for case finding, diagnosis, and management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
TLDR
COPD is manifested by chronic cough, sputum production, wheezing and, in later stages, dyspnea, poor exercise tolerance, and signs/symptoms of right-sided heart failure. Expand
Detection of chronic obstructive lung disease. An evaluation of the medical history and physical examination.
TLDR
The value of a standard medical history and physical examination in the diagnosis of chronic obstructive lung disease was tested and it was found that severe degrees of impairment of ventilation may be undetected by the history andPhysical examination. Expand
Inhaled corticosteroids in patients with stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
The effects of ICS therapy on mortality and adverse events in patients with stable COPD are quantitatively synthesized and pneumonia is associated with a higher risk of pneumonia among patients with COPD. Expand
Long-term treatment with inhaled budesonide in persons with mild chronic obstructive pulmonary disease who continue smoking. European Respiratory Society Study on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
TLDR
In patients with mild COPD who continue smoking, the use of inhaled budesonide is associated with a small one-time improvement in lung function but does not appreciably affect the long-term progressive decline. Expand
The Effect of Inhaled Corticosteroids on the Development of Emphysema in Smokers Assessed by Annual Computed Tomography
TLDR
Long-term budesonide inhalation shows a non-significant trend towards reducing the progression of emphysema as determined by the CT-derived 15th percentile lung density from annual CT scans in current smokers with moderate to severe COPD. Expand
