Tidlig opsporing af KOL er vigtig og mulig

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is substantially underdiagnosed and under treated. The present review paper discusses the possibilities of early diagnosis by means of spirometry in the setting of Danish general practice. It is concluded that case finding of undiagnosed COPD is feasible by applying opportunistic spirometry in patients with relevant exposures and relevant respiratory symptoms. The potential barriers of this approach and possible solutions are discussed.
