Abstract

Background: COPD is presently the fourth major reason for mortality and further increments in its predominance and mortality can be anticipated in the coming decades. COPD represents a significant number of visits to a pulmonologist and other specialists.
Methodology: 101 patients are selected for the study, from in & out patient departments & causality in GGH, Kakinada attending with COPD from June 2016 to October 2018.
Results: The present investigation included 101 patients with stable COPD going to medical OP or admitted to the different wards in GGH Kakinada.
Increasing hematocrit (HB%, PCV) dictates further management of COPD in the form of LTOT.
The occurrence of ECG and echocardiographic discoveries are progressively normal as the sickness term and seriousness increase and echocardiography is better than ECG in the diagnosis of RV dysfunction in COPD.
Conclusions: COPD is a fairly common disease in the world now. It is more common in males and in the 5th and 6th decade. Most of the patients have fairly advanced disease at presentation.
In perspective of the extremely huge negative relationship of FEV1/FVC% with the expanding frequency of electrocardiographic variations from the standard an inexorably strong approach to manage treat the COPD patients can be taken with the goal that the beginning of corpulmonale would be postponed as long as possible.

Keywords: COPD; Cor-pulmonale; P-pulmonale; Right ventricular systolic pressure (RVSP).
