COPD and comorbidities: How can epidemiology help us?

11 Jun, 2022


The topic of the role of epidemiology and comorbidities in COPD will be thoroughly discussed on this week’s episode of Medical Insider COPD as Dr Richard Russell is joined by Professor Jennifer Quint. They will explain the differences between COPD populations in randomised controlled trials and real-world observational studies, as well the importance of treating cardiovascular comorbidities in people with COPD. Following this discussion, Dr Russell will talk through the most important takeaways from a recent publication on exacerbations and muscle loss in smokers with COPD. Finally, he will discuss biomass fuels and their effect on people with respiratory disorders, which has been hot on social media this week.
