Effect of diagnosis of "smoker's lung"


Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Smoking cessation is of paramount importance in treating patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), but no effective treatment of smoking habits, medical or informative, has yet been documented in nonmotivated patients. 1 , 2 In a prospective controlled randomised trial we analysed whether use of “smoker's lung” (Danish: “rygerlunge”) instead of traditional terminology when talking to COPD patients changed their smoking habits.
