Practical clinical management of the patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is discussed with emphasis on returning the patient to an active life style. The early chapters deal with diagnosis and natural history of the disease. Drug therapy and physiotherapy are presented in a didactic, uncritical manner. Experience with a rehabilitation program is discussed. Useful as a practical guide to the nonspecialist practitioner.
