ABSTRACT
The article reports on the identification of 12 co-morbidities that increase risks in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Doctor Miguel Divo of Brigham and Women's Hospital and his colleagues investigated patients with COPD in the U.S. and Spain. Co-morbidities were recorded through direct questioning and confirmed via medication lists and medical records. The researchers used data to create the COPD Specific Comorbidity Test (COTE) index.
