Cardio Pulmonary Synergism in COPD The Essentiality of Early Meddling

Praveen Babu R, Rajesh M, Manjula Devi A.

Abstract
Background: There always exists an anatomical and functional interaction between the heart and the lung. Dysfunction of one organ has impact on functions of other. In many studies, Cardiovascular disease constitutes the most common cause of death in COPD patients. Echocardiography is a simple, non-invasive tool to assess these changes

Aim: To assess the Left Ventricular function abnormalities in COPD patients using echocardiography and correlate with COPD severity.

Material and methods: Our study population involved two groups. 50 cases, in whom diagnosis of COPD was confirmed by spirometry and 40 healthier controls. Both cases and controls were subjected to echocardiography.

Results: In our study, prevalence of Pulmonary Hypertension, Cor pulmonale and Left Ventricle diastolic dysfunction was 38%, 14% and 26% compared to controls and showed a linear relationship with COPD severity

Conclusion: Prevalence of Left Ventricular dysfunction was higher in COPD patients compared to controls which needs to be addressed early to give them a better quality of life.

Key words: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Left Ventricle dysfunction, Echocardiography
