Introduction

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) affects up to three million people in the UK, with sputum production being a common feature of the condition.

Some patients find this sputum difficult to clear, leaving them potentially vulnerable to respiratory infections.

This webinar recording reviews the options available to help COPD patients minimise their symptoms and improve the management of their condition.

OVERVIEW

This 48-minute video is a recording of an educational webinar which took place in December 2021. The session looks at the role of mucolytics in the management of COPD patients and covers:

  • The rationale for the use of mucolytics in COPD
  • The evidence base for their use
  • What national COPD guidelines say
  • Case studies to illustrate some key points
  • Choosing the right mucolytic for the patient
  • Local guideline summary
