Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) causes more than 80,000 deaths annually and is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States after heart disease, cancer, and stroke. In contrast to other major chronic diseases, prevalence of and mortality from COPD are increasing. Recognition, assessment, treatment, and monitoring of COPD in the long term care setting can be challenging.Some outcomes that may be expected from implementing this guideline include earlier identification and better differential diagnosis of COPD, better symptom control, increased patient function in activities of daily living and participation in social activities, decreased anxiety and depression caused by shortness of breath and other COPD symptoms, more appropriate use of oxygen therapy and medications to treat COPD - resulting in improved resource utilization and decreased patient care costs, reduction in rates of viral and bacterial infections in COPD patients, reduction in the frequency of hospital transfers in acute exacerbations of COPD, better understanding of when and how to initiate palliative care, enhanced comfort care for patients with end-stage COPD and much more.
