The Controversies in COPD Monograph is now available. The book’s editors, Antonio Anzueto, Yvonne Heijdra and John R. Hurst, have brought together a wide-ranging selection of chapters written by leading authors in the field. The book considers where the current controversies lie, discussing areas such as screening, premature birth, asthma–COPD overlap syndrome, treatment, rehabilitation and palliative care. Controversies in COPD will be of interest to both clinicians and scientists, and aims to stimulate further discussion about this diverse disease.

About the ERS books

The ERS Monograph is the quarterly book series from the European Respiratory Society. Each Monograph covers a specific area of respiratory medicine, providing in-depth reviews that give clinicians at all levels a concise, comprehensive guide to symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. 

The ERS Handbooks are compact guides to broad areas of the respiratory field. Launched in 2010, the series now covers adult, paediatric and sleep respiratory medicine, and a companion volume of self-assessment questions is available.
