SPIROMETRY SCREENING IN EVALUATION OF CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE AT PRIMARY CARE

Cover Page

Abstract


Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is an acute medical and social problem. Spirometry is a "gold standard" of diagnostics of the disease. In our investigation we studied respiratory function in rural population. A high prevalence of obstruction: FEV1 less than 80% of normal, recorded in 23.5% of the cases and FEV1/FVC <0,7 in 15,1% of the surveyed adult rural population was revealed. Among the males the corresponding figures were respectively 33.6% and 29.9%.
