A new version of the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) Report has been published, dated February 2013. First quick look through shows many areas where the knowledge has been updated, which is very welcome.
If you do read it (it is heavy going in places), remember that in the UK we are quite advanced, and this document has to be relevant worldwide, so information from trials of new drugs and techniques are not included because as yet they are not accepted worldwide.
There is a lot of new information on drugs, how the work, and what they are used for.
All in all, a very useful reference tool.
