A brief questionnaire known as the COPD Population Screener™ may help identify potential COPD patients, a disease affecting as many as 24 million people, 12 million of whom are under- or misdiagnosed.
Tested among 807 consumers, the questionnaire helps people determine whether they have breathing problems linked to one of the world’s fastest growing pulmonary conditions.
According to data from the American Academy of Family Physicians, the five-item questionnaire accurately identified members of the public who had COPD.
While COPD is not curable, it is a manageable disease when detected early. The COPD Population Screener is designed to help those experiencing the symptoms of COPD get the support they need to manage the disease.
