On the Medical Insider COPD Podcast this week, Dr Richard Russell is joined by Professor MeiLan Han from the University of Michigan in the United States. She will be discussing early COPD and how imaging can play a role in the diagnosis and management of COPD. Listen as she explores the benefits of identifying COPD earlier in the course of the disease as well as in younger patients. She will also delve into her experience working on large long-term cohort studies. Dr Russell will then present a new publication on the use of beta-blockers in patients with COPD, following a myocardial infarction. Stay to the end to hear his thoughts on the ‘invisible epidemic’ of COPD and how we can increase awareness of the disease across the globe!
