COPD Diagnosis
Diagnosing Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is usually diagnosed in patients when a number of Indicating COPD Risk Factors and Indicating COPD Symptoms are present. Then Spirometry Measurements MUST BE obtained to confirm Persistent Limitation of Airflow and a provide a Diagnosis of COPD.

    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is usually diagnosed in patients when a number of Indicating COPD Risk Factors and Indicating COPD Symptoms are present,
    AND THEN Spirometry Measurements have been obtained
    that confirm Persistent Limitation of Airflow
    .

    Primary Indicating Risk Factors When Considering A COPD Diagnosis

    When considering a COPD Diagnosis, the primary indicating Risk Factors are:
    - The patient has a history of smoking tobacco products (including second-hand smoking)
    - The patient has a history of exposure to other sources of smoke, from fires or other combustion processes
    - The patient has a history of occupational exposure to chemical fumes or irritant dusts
    - The patient reports a family history of COPD
    - The patient is usually 40 years old, or older

    Primary Indicating Symptoms When Considering A COPD Diagnosis

    When considering a COPD Diagnosis, the primary indicating Symptoms are:
    - The patient experiences a Chronic Cough that may be intermittent or unproductive, but in many cases may produce Sputum.
    - The patient experiences Persistent Dyspnea (Breathlessness) that worsens with physical exertion and has progressively worsened over time.
    More About COPD Symptoms

    The presence of Multiple COPD Indicators increases the probability of a COPD Diagnosis.

    COPD Diagnosis Requires Spirometry

    A patient who exhibits any of the Primary Indicating COPD Risk Factors and Primary Indicating COPD Symptoms should be screened for COPD using Spirometry.

    The next step should be to obtain Spirometry Measurements.

    Spirometry is required to make a clinical diagnosis of COPD

    Specifically, a post-bronchodilator FEV1/FVC less than 70% is taken to indicate consistent limitation of airflow and as confirmation of a COPD Diagnosis

    FEV1 is the volume of air that can be exhaled forcibly in 1 second
    FVC (Forced Vital Capacity) is the total volume of air that can be exhaled forcibly

    The Tiffeneau Index = FEV1/FVC
    This is usually expressed as a % ,and referred to as FEV1%

    FEV1% is used as a quantitative clinical measurement to define a range of 4 COPD Stages
