About

The goal of this observational study is to investigate the correlation between handgrip strength and small airway disease among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The main question it aims to answer is: • Is handgrip strength correlated with small airway disease in COPD patients? Participants will perform handgrip strength test and impulse oscillometry (IOS).

Full description

This is a cross-sectional study in COPD patients. COPD patients aged 40 years or older were included. Handgrip strength test and impulse oscillometry will be tested in each patient. Handgrip strength will be measured using a hand dynamometer. Small airway disease will be assessed using IOS.

Enrollment
