Article Info COPD is associated with significant extra-pulmonary (systemic) effects among which cardiac complications are most common. COPD affects primarily the right side of heart and cor pulmonale is one of the important causes of increased morbidity and mortality in patients of COPD. Echocardiography provides a rapid, non-invasive method to evaluate the cardiac changes. The aim of the study was to comparatively analyse the 2D FAC and TAPSE as a marker of RV dysfunction in patients of COPD… CONTINUE READING
