Cochrane Airways is a group working worldwide to publish Cochrane Systematic Reviews about the prevention and treatment of respiratory (lung) diseases. These include asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), obstructive sleep apnoea, bronchiectasis, interstitial lung disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary sarcoidosis, pulmonary hypertension, chronic and sub-acute cough (cough lasting over 3 weeks). Systematic reviews summarise research evidence to inform clinical practice and policy decisions.
We want to know what questions you have about living with your lung disease. We also want to know your questions if you care for people with lung diseases, either as a relative or a friend, or a healthcare professional.
Your questions will help us to decide on new topics for future reviews and to make existing reviews more relevant to you. We will use your responses to help us prioritise our work – for more information see here.
We mainly focus on treatments such as tablets and inhaler medications or exercise programs. But please do let us know any questions even if they are not about treatments, as they may change the focus of our work.
