Phenotypic Measurements and Their Relation to Disease Exacerbation in COPD Patients
This is an observational pilot study focused on collecting data on clinical variables that can improve the understanding of potential predictors of disease exacerbation and readmissions in COPD patients. The study aim is to understand how the variability of clinical parameters (respiratory rate, forced expiratory volume in one second, and oxygen saturation), physical activity and quality of life is associated with the risk of exacerbation in COPD patients.
