Introducing the COPD Foundation Guide for Diagnosis and Management of COPD. These are not guidelines. This is a summary of the guidelines packaged in a simple, convenient and portable COPD Pocket Consultant Guide (PCG).

The PCG Cards are available in four versions.

  • A 4”x6” Tri-fold 6 panel card with generic name drugs.
  • A 4”x6” Tri-fold 6 panel card with trade name drugs.
  • A 4”x6” Tri-fold 2 panel card with only panel #1 (Introduction) and panel #2 (Therapy Chart) information.
  • This 2 panel card is also available as an 18”x22” poster for use as a teaching tool in clinics and academic centers.

The PCG is a 6 panel card that folds into a 4x6 Guide that fits easily into a lab coat or scrub pocket.

The outside 3 panels feature:

  • Panel 1: An explanation of COPD diagnosis and the seven severity domains
  • Panel 5: The COPD Assessment Test (CAT), a health status questionnaire. Score 0 to 40.
  • Panel 6: The mMRC dyspnea scale and advice for smoking cessation. Score 0 to 4.

The inside 3 panels feature:

  • Panel 2: A COPD treatment Therapy Chart which lists the 7 severity domains in rows and treatment options in columns.
  • Panel 3: A medication table arranged by class and corresponds to the therapy chart.
  • Panel 4: A medication table arranged by class and corresponds to the therapy chart.
