Courage and Information for Life with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: The Handbook for Patients, Families, and Care Givers Managing COPD (Emphysema, Asthmatic or Chronic Bronchitis) by Rick Carter, Brooke Nicotra

The authors of this book provide patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and their caregivers with the practical knowledge regarding the understanding and treatment regiments of COPD. The purpose is to provide easy-to-understand information for both individuals with previous knowledge and those who have limited knowledge. This book is written by two qualified experts, but what is unique is the third author is a patient diagnosed with COPD. As stated above, patients with COPD and their care givers are the intended audience. The authors encourage patients or caregivers to take an active role in the treatment regimen by gaining knowledge and communicating effectively with their pulmonary or internal medicine physicians. This is accomplished by walking a patient through the process involved with describing, diagnosing, and treating COPD. Patients and care givers react differently to a diagnosis of COPD, and information regarding the methods of acceptance of this dia gnosis is also provided. Disease course and difficult decisions regarding treatment in advanced stages of the disease are also correctly identified and discussed. It is important for patients and care givers to gain understanding of COPD. The authors do a very good job in providing that information in an easy to understand format. The addition of a patients viewpoint adds credibility and understanding not typically seen in similar books. The uniqueness of the patients viewpoint underscores the importance of COPD patients actively understanding and participating in their care and treatment.
