Echocardiographic predictors of exercise capacity and mortality in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

43 Citationer (Scopus)

Abstract

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) reduces exercise capacity, but lung function parameters do not fully explain functional class and lung-heart interaction could be the explanation. We evaluated echocardiographic predictors of mortality and six minutes walking distance (6MWD), a marker for quality of life and mortality in COPD.
