Abstract

Multidimensional instruments (SAC TDI and UCSD SOBQ) demonstrated the frequently observed decline in PRD experienced by patients with COPD. The progression in PRD occurred despite stable lung function. Monitoring PRD provides unique clinical information and should be considered along with measuring lung function to assess patient status over time.
