One of these days we will have a general knowledge of this COPD that will be applied nationally and we will not have to rely upon misinformation and misunderstanding. Reading a website like this makes you think that we are all so well equipped to deal with the illness but I have personally (and as I can see from posts have others)come across such anomalies in the diagnosis and treatment of this disease that it astounds me. I have spoken to patients in hospital who are so ill equipped and ignorant through no fault of their own about the self awareness that is so necessary to contain and control this debilitating disease. If this is the second or third biggest medical killer then when are the guidelines going to be laid so we can all expect to be treated similarly as far as possible.
