NICE updates COPD guidance

  • Comment

Updated guidance on diagnosing and managing adult patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease has been published by NICE.

Replacing NICE guidance from 2004, the document focuses on diagnosis, severity classification, managing stable COPD and disease progression. Recommendations have been added on diagnostic spirometry, clinical assessment, prognostic factors and inhaled therapy.

This includes the sequencing and combination of inhaled therapies to achieve the best clinical and health economic outcomes.
