CPG: Management of COPD, 2nd edition, 2009

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a common illness associated with major morbidity
and high mortality throughout the world. It is projected to rank fifth by 2020 in terms of burden of disease worldwide, according to a study by the World Bank and World Health Organization.2 Yet COPD is relatively unknown to the public and often ignored by health policy makers and government officials.

An updated set of CPG will ensure that the recommendations for the management of COPD in Malaysia are current. We would like to emphasise the importance of (1) early diagnosis , (2) improving dyspnoea and activity limitation in stable COPD and (3) preventing and managing acute exacerbations.
