Are BBs Beneficial in Patients with COPD?
10/15/2011 Filed in: Drug Info
As part of a Kootenai Medical Center CME (continuing medical education) seminar, I was able to give the follwing presentation to a group of family practice physicians from the Couer d'Alene, Idaho area. The topic I presented on was the effect of beta-blockers, a group of drugs used in treating cardiovascular disease, in patients who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In preparing for the presentation, I was able to get feedback and suggestions from many of the pulmonologists working at Kootenai Medical Center -- which has added greatly to my own understanding of the topic. During the presentation I also covered the causes, effects, and treatment options for COPD. If you are interested in any of these topics, make sure and check out the power point that has been attached to this blog post. Happy autumn everyone!
