Clinical Evaluation of COPD

Assessment of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is important to establish an accurate diagnosis, assist in making therapeutic decisions, measuring outcomes for clinical and research purposes. Assessment of patients with COPD for both clinical and research purposes should incorporate a variety of different outcomes. There are outcome measures that have been successfully incorporated in large clinical trials and the design and outcomes of these trials can be used to plan future clinical investigations in COPD. The most widely used current definitions of COPD are provided by two current clinical practice guidelines.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common inflammatory disease characterized by persistent airflow limitations, which cause chronic cough, breathlessness and exercise intolerance.  Patients with COPD may experience a considerable restriction in many everyday activities and consequently a poor quality of life. Airway hyper responsiveness (HR) is one of the clinical characteristics of bronchial asthma and COPD. HR of COPD has been known to correlate with progress of pulmonary function in COPD.
