ABSTRACT
This article discusses the role of body-mass index, airflow obstruction, dyspnea, and exercise capacity index in diagnosing Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). 832 patients (mean age 66 y) who had COPD with a wide range of severity, were in clinically stable condition, and were receiving appropriate therapy. Exclusion criteria were probability of death within 3 years from a cause other than COPD, asthma, inability to take the lung-function and 6-minute walk tests, myocardial infarction within the previous 4 months, unstable angina, or congestive heart failure. The outcome showed that patients with COPD an index comprising measures of the above stated parameters predicted all-cause mortality and death from respiratory causes.
