Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

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.

Correlation Analysis and its Significance of Serum NT-proBNP, pH value and PaCO2 in Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.331
Pages: 
684–89
Synopsis: 
The regular detection of serum NT-proBNP, pH value and PaCO2 in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients can detect disease progression early in COPD patients, which is conducive to the active treatment for COPD.

A Study of Patients with “Interface Respiratory Failure” Due to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.028
Pages: 
81–6
Synopsis: 
The definition of interface respiratory failure is scientific and its width is appropriate. We should avoid progression from “interface respiratory failure” to “real respiratory failure”. Interventions should focus on oxygen therapy, bronchodilators, improving respiratory compliance, cytokines and anti-infective agents, respectively.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To explain a definition of “interface respiratory failure” as arterial blood gas assay with arterial oxygen partial pressure in the range of 60-75 mmHg.

Length of Stay and Outcome of Hospitalized Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Patients, Differences between General Medical Ward and Intensive Care Unit: A Cohort Study

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.115
Synopsis: 
Results of our study showed that most patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) were hospitalized for an average of five days, and mortality rate was 5%; these outcomes are better than those found in the literature.
