Interdisciplinary cooperation in the management of people with chronic obstructive lung disease is the theme of Pulmonary Rehabilitation (BMJ Publishing Group, £24.95, ISBN 0 7279 1022 1). Exercise training, drugs, stopping smoking, physiotherapy, domiciliary oxygen, and mechanical ventilation all have their place, but individual response varies. It is important, therefore, to develop ways of measuring quality of life in order to determine the value of different therapies.
