Abstract Few studies have examined the neuropsychological sequelae associated with end-stage pulmonary disease. Neuropsychological data are presented for 47 patients with end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD who were being evaluated as potential candidates for lung transplantation.

Although patients exhibited a diversity of neurocognitive deficits, their highest frequencies of impairment were found on the Selective Reminding Test SRT.

Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 MMPI-2 personality assessments indicated that patients were experiencing a diversity of somatic complaints and that they may have been functioning at a reduced level of efficiency.

Implications for clinical practice and future research are also included. Keywords: Neuropsychological dysfunction, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Lung transplantation According to the American Thoracic Society, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD is defined as a disease process that is characterized by the presence of airflow obstruction secondary to emphysema or chronic bronchitis American Thoracic Society, While several factors have been theorized to contribute to the development of COPD, including air pollution, infection, and genetics, clearly the primary etiological factor underlying the disease is smoking tobacco products Weinberger, There have been few published reports of the neuropsychological profiles of patients with COPD.

Grant, Heaton, McSweeny, Adams, and Timms conducted neuropsychological assessments on individuals with COPD who participated in a multicenter clinical trial of the effectiveness of continuous, versus nocturnal, oxygen usage i.

Although patients displayed impairments across virtually all tasks that were administered, compared to a sample of 74 matched controls, the patients exhibited their poorest performances on tasks involving flexible thought, abstraction abilities, perceptual—motor integration, and on tests of simple motor skills e. Furthermore, while patients with hypoxemic COPD as a group tended to perform better i.

Similarly, Prigatano, Parsons, Wright, Levin, and Hawryluk administered neuropsychological evaluations to mildly hypoxic patients with COPD and 25 matched controls as part of a multisite study of the efficacy of intermittent positive pressure breathing i. Specifically, consistent deficits were found in abstract reasoning, memory, and speed of performance, as compared to controls.

Grant et al. A factor analysis that was also performed on the neuropsychological data produced four factors that were conceptualized as follows: 1 verbal-intelligence; 2 perceptual learning-problem solving; 3 alertness—psychomotor speed; 4 simple motor.

Standardized factor scores were then calculated for each participant and then subjected to a multivariate analysis of variance in order to compare the abilities of patients in differing hypoxemia categories and controls. The medical records of patients admitted into the medical wards over a 5-year period were retrieved and reviewed.

Information obtained included demography, diagnosis, comorbid conditions, and risk factors for respiratory disease. Three thousand four hundred and ninety patients were admitted into the medical wards with 9.

There were females and males. The average age of the patients was The commonest respiratory conditions were tuberculosis The commonest comorbidity was HIV infection HIV infection was the single most important predictor of an adverse outcome OR 5. Infective conditions make up a large percentage of respiratory diseases in low income countries with HIV infection constituting a significant risk factor for a poor disease outcome.

Introduction Respiratory complaints such as cough and catarrh are some of the commonest symptoms encountered in medicine. This is due in part to the large surface area; nearly 70 m2 of the lungs present to the atmosphere [ 1 ].

Respiratory diseases constitute a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide.

The top four respiratory diseases, lower respiratory tract infections, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD , tuberculosis, and lung cancer, are among the ten leading causes of death worldwide [ 2 ].

In Africa, lower respiratory tract infection and tuberculosis are ranked 2nd and 8th, respectively [ 3 ].

In developed countries, respiratory diseases feature prominently in the top ten causes of morbidity and mortality [ 4 — 7 ].

In India another developing country, pneumonia and pulmonary tuberculosis ranked in the top five causes of death [ 9 ]. Health care demands are rapidly expanding and the trends are changing in developing countries. Upgrading of the health care system is a pressing need and the priorities are not always easy to define especially in a resource constrained system.
