By the time of diagnosis, your COPD patients may already have lost 50% of their lung function 1

As a healthcare professional managing a busy caseload of symptomatic COPD patients every day, watching this video could help you make informed treatment decisions for your COPD patients and optimise their treatment.

There is no time to waste for lung function improvement. Wouldn’t you want to give your COPD patients a more effective treatment vs. tiotropium/olodaterol if there was a comparable safety profile?

Watch our video, and see why you should start with Anoro Ellipta instead of tiotropium* and tiotroprium/olodaterol** when making the decision to start initial maintenance therapy for your symptomatic patients with COPD. 2 5 6
