Russi, E W; Karrer, W; Brutsche, M; Eich, C; Fitting, J W; Frey, M; Geiser, T; Kuhn, M; Nicod, L; Quadri, F; Rochat, T; Steurer-Stey, C; Stolz, D (2013). Diagnosis and management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: the swiss guidelines. Official guidelines of the Swiss Respiratory Society. Respiration, 85(2):160-174.

Abstract

The new Swiss Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Guidelines are based on a previous version, which was published 10 years ago. The Swiss Respiratory Society felt the need to update the previous document due to new knowledge and novel therapeutic developments about this prevalent and important disease. The recommendations and statements are based on the available literature, on other national guidelines and, in particular, on the GOLD (Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease) report. Our aim is to advise pulmonary physicians, general practitioners and other health care workers on the early detection and diagnosis, prevention, best symptomatic control, and avoidance of COPD as well as its complications and deterioration.
