About the program

COPD 360 is a distinct and comprehensive learning initiative in association with CHEST (American College of Chest Physicians) for the clinicians to get acquainted with the latest updates on advancements in the COPD domain to achieve prompt management of the condition for improved patient outcomes.

Practical Approach to COPD Patient

Video - A Practical Approach to the COPD Patient Part 1

This session highlights the importance of spirometry and disease severity assessment tools like mMRC and CAT using the case of a 69-year-old labourer with COPD who complained of progressive dyspnea and occasional cough.

Podcast - Impact of patients underreporting COPD exacerbations

This session consists of a discussion about the importance of timely recognition and reporting of COPD symptoms and exacerbations and how it helps guide the pharmacological management of treatable traits of COPD.

Article - Significance of FEV3/FEV6 in Recognition of Early Airway Disease in Smokers

This reading session includes an article on the SPIROMICS study that was conducted to investigate whether a reduced forced expiratory volume in 3 seconds/forced expiratory volume in 6 seconds (FEV3/FEV6) in current or former smokers with a normal FEV1/FVC is associated with longitudinal clinical outcomes like acute respiratory exacerbations and progression to COPD.

Patient case journey - Victoria

This session consists of the patient case journey of Victoria, a 57-year-old department store manager who is being re-evaluated for progressive dyspnea and airflow obstruction. It includes her medical history, current scenario, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up.

Optimizing COPD Care

This session highlights various topics related to the management of COPD, including the effectiveness of pulmonary rehabilitation, telerehabilitation, medication strategies for COPD, personalized steroid dosing in acute exacerbations, and a comprehensive overview of COPD management, including guidelines, recent advancement, and strategies to enhance patient care and outcomes.

Video - A Practical Approach to COPD Patient Diagnosis and Mx of COPD Exacerbations

This session consists of a discussion about COPD exacerbations, their risks, predictors, and management using the case of a woman in her 60s with COPD who complained of dyspnea on exertion and suffered COPD exacerbation.

Article - Optimizing COPD Acute Care Patient Outcomes Using a Standardized Transition Bundle and Care Coordinator

This reading session includes an article on the impact of a COPD transition bundle and the involvement of care coordinators in patient outcomes, focusing on emergency department (ED) revisits and rehospitalization for patients with acute exacerbations of COPD.

The session also encompasses clinical assessment, biomarkers, and management strategies, emphasizing the need for targeted therapies and research to enhance treatment approaches.

Video - Updates in the Management of COPD

This session includes the potential of targeting interleukin-5 (IL-5) in COPD treatment, focusing on eosinophilic phenotype and the impact of biologics. It also discusses the ongoing trials on other biologics that may offer additional insights into management for patients with COPD.

Article - Genetic Associations and Architecture of Asthma-COPD Overlap

This reading session explores the genetic architecture of asthma-COPD overlap, revealing novel signals reveal shared genetic influences impacting type 2 inflammation and long-term outcomes in individuals with this respiratory condition.

Article - Procalcitonin as a marker of infectious inflammation in patients with Bronchial Asthma, COPD, and Asthma-COPD overlap

This reading session includes an article on procalcitonin as a marker for infectious inflammation in bronchial obstructive diseases that may aid in guiding antibiotic treatment in COPD, bronchial asthma, and asthma-COPD overlap.
