Changing the Definition and Perception of COPD

The researchers working on the COPDGene project proposed, in 2019, a new way of defining COPD that expands the spirometric definition and uses other metrics, such as radiographic findings and patient symptoms. This change recognizes that COPD can have several different manifestations and phenotypes that may require different interventions. This presentation will describe these changes, their rationale, and examine how they have been applied in both research and clinical practice. Lecturer: David Mannino, MD

This presentation is sponsored by an unrestricted educational grant from Monaghan.
