Your lungs, your questions: a survey

Cochrane Airways is a group working worldwide to publish Cochrane Systematic Reviews about the prevention and treatment of respiratory (lung) diseases. Systematic reviews summarise research evidence to inform clinical practice and policy decisions.

In the summer of 2019, they ran a survey for members of the public including patients, carers, healthcare professionals and researchers. They  asked for your questions about living with a chronic lung disease. This may 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).

Please note this survey has now closed, as of 9 September 2019.

Thank you to everyone who responded. Cochrane Airways will use your responses to help them prioritise their work. This means that your questions will help them to decide on new topics for future reviews and to make existing reviews more relevant to you.
