What is appealing is that the articles cover an exhaustive range of topics, including multiple considerations in pharmacotherapies, imaging, and comorbid conditions. The table of contents helpfully includes a brief description of each article.
This is an inclusive, worthwhile collection of articles on COPD. Every practitioner caring for these patients would benefit from this book.
