CG101 Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (update): quick reference guide

A small error has been detected in the printed version of the quick reference guide for the COPD guideline. Readers should be aware that the version that is on the NICE website is correct but that on page 6 of the printed version, in the second box of the flow chart,  the value at the end of the sentence should read ≥ 0.7 not > 0.7.

The correct wording is:

‘Consider alternative diagnoses in older people without typical symptoms of COPD and FEV1/FVC ratio < 0.7, and younger people with symptoms of COPD and FEV1/FVC ratio ≥ 0.7’.
