Mean Platelet Volume and Red Cell Distribution Width in Acute Exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.144
Synopsis: 
Mean platelet volume (MPV) and red cell distribution width were investigated in COPD as an indicator of inflammation. We found that MPV and RDW levels increased in COPD patients. Also, MPV may be related with respiratory function loss and hypoxia.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To evaluate the level of mean platelet volume (MPV) and red cell distribution width (RDW) in patients with acute exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and to investigate the relationship between MPV and RDW levels with pulmonary function test (PFT), right ventricle dysfunction (RVD), arterial blood gases (ABG) and inflammatory status.
