Description

Patients with asthma-COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS) appear to be younger and experience more disparities in care than those with COPD alone, according to a study. Patients with ACOS also had higher rates of comorbidities, disability, hospitalizations, and ED visits.

National estimates indicate that asthma and COPD are the most common diagnoses for patients with breathlessness and airway obstruction, each affecting greater than 5% of the United States population. These conditions often share similar characteristics, most notably chronic airway inflammation and hyper-reactivity. Recently, the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease guidelines for diagnosing, managing, and preventing COPD recognized asthma-COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS) as a separate entity. ACOS occurs in patients with fixed airway obstruction that defines COPD who also have symptoms that are more typical of asthma, such as wheezing. The prevalence and comorbidities associated with this syndrome have not been well defined in clinical research.

Objectives

Objective: Discuss the findings of a study that sought to define the prevalence and comorbidities associated with asthma-COPD overlap syndrome.
Upon completion of the educational activity, participants should be able to discuss the findings of a study that sought to define the prevalence and comorbidities associated with asthma-COPD overlap syndrome.

question 1 is not correctly stated.there is an omission of "NOT" in it so as to arrive at the correct option of Athritis because its not among the comorbidity of ACOS.
