Predictive factors over time of health-related quality of life in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients
Background: Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) should be seen as a tool that provides an overall view of the general clinical condition of a COPD patient. The aims of this study were to identify variables associated ...
COPD classification models and mortality prediction capacity
Our aim was to assess the impact of comorbidities on existing COPD prognosis scores. Patients and methods: A total of 543 patients with COPD (FEV1 < 80% and FEV1/ FVC <70%) were included between January 2003 and January ...
A Computer Application to Predict Adverse Events in the Short-Term Evolution of Patients With Exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common chronic disease. Exacerbations of COPD (eCOPD) contribute to the worsening of the disease and the patient’s evolution. There are some clinical prediction ...
Comparison of two discrimination indexes in the categorisation of continuous predictors in time-to-event studies
The Cox proportional hazards model is the most widely used survival prediction model for analysing timeto-event data. To measure the discrimination ability of a survival model the concordance probability index is widely ...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease subtypes. transitions over time
Background Although subtypes of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are recognized, it is unknown what happens to these subtypes over time. Our objectives were to assess the stability of cluster-based subtypes in patients ...
A decision tree to assess short-term mortality after an emergency department visit for an exacerbation of COPD: A cohort study
Background: Creating an easy-to-use instrument to identify predictors of short-term (30/60-day) mortality after an exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (eCOPD) could help clinicians choose specific measures ...
