Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease


Antonella Chesca and Tim Sandle have written an article looking at chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Here is the abstract:

The present study refers to the exploration of the respiratory function of patients who presented acute symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. In the medical specialty units, examination was performed using a standard chest X-ray imaging investigation; followed by a spirometry test, according to the patient's severity of symptoms, using the betamimetics test. Both the X-ray result and the imaging investigation of spirometry showed changes. Changes varied according to the patients from different investigate disease groups in relation to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
