Part of the Anaesthesiologie und Intensivmedizin / Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine book series (A+I, volume 167)


Chronic obstructive lung disease (COLD) causes in excess of 25,000 deaths each year in the United States. Also, 5 to 10 million Americans are partially or totally disabled with COLD. Thus, COLD is a common and important cause of respiratory failure.
