Welcome to the Pocket Consultant Guide Online Community website! This site is designed for physicians and health care professionals to interact with one another and submit their questions and comments about the Guide. Conversations from this site will drive future updates of the PCG. I encourage you to submit your email in the form on the right so you will be the first to know when the site goes live.
This community is led by well recognized thought leaders in COPD including Dr. Byron Thomashow, Dr. David Mannino, Dr. Stephen Rennard, Dr. Andrew McIvor, Dr. James Crapo, Dr. MeiLan Han, Dr. Neil Schachter, Dr. Barbara Yawn and many more. I invite you to become an active part of the discussions, so that we can promote better COPD diagnosis and treatment through the PCG.
Upcoming opening discussions will include:
- Diagnosis and treating COPD vs Asthma and COPD with Asthma
- What is the role of LVRS? Is it performed often enough?
- What are the implications of oxygen therapy? Should oxygen be prescribed for episodic or mild hypoxemia. Results from the ongoing LOTT trial may shed light on this topic.
