COPD, Sleep Apnea, and Asthma: American Thoracic Society Conference Highlights

The annual American Thoracic Society (ATS) meeting, which begins May 18 in San Francisco,  may be one of the largest gatherings of pulmonary, critical care, and sleep specialists in the world (more than 13,000 are expected this year). But several of the tracks directly affect primary care physicians: COPD, asthma, and sleep apnea. We’ve gone through the 5,800 abstracts and culled several we think will interest you.
