Resumen

ALVEAR T, GONZALO; FIGUEROA R, LIDIA P  y  PENA M, CARLOS A. Clinical profile of patients admitted to a COPD program in a primary care setting during 10 years. Rev. chil. enferm. respir. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.1, pp.17-26. ISSN 0717-7348.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73482015000100003.

Our objective was to determine the clinical profile of patients admitted to the COPD program of CESFAM Silva Henríquez of Puente Alto, Chile, between 2004 and 2014. We analyzed the clinical and spirometric data of medical and controls records as being admitted to the program. The predicted FEV1 percentage average of the 65 patients analyzed was 76.6%. 47.7% had mild, 40% moderate and 12.3% severe COPD. The patients were 62 years-old in average, 55.4% were women, 78.5% had smoking history, 73.6% had been exposed to wood and/or coal combustion (50.1% to both), 61.5% had some comorbidity (90% cardiovascular). 40% were under monotherapy with short-acting bronchodilator (BDc) and 50.7% received dual therapy with BDc and inhaled corticosteroid. Our COPD patients were predominantly women over 60 years old, exposed to tobacco and biomass and most of them had cardiovascular comorbidities.
