Usefulness of the Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease-population (COPD-PS) Questionnaire and the COPD-6 Device in the Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Detection in a Tobacco Detoxication Consultation


The aim of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease-population questionnaire (COPD-PS) and the COPD-6 device in the early detection of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in smoker patients .

Study Type

  • Study Type: Observational
  • Study Design
    • Time Perspective: Other
  • Study Primary Completion Date: March 15, 2020


  • Other: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease screening
    • To verify the tobacco withdrawal, the patients will make a cooximetry. For the detection of a possible obstructive pattern a measurement of the ventilatory capacity will be make using the COPD-6 device and for the confirmation of COPD diagnosis and the assesment of the airflow obstruction severity a spirometry will be make. The patients will also complete the COPD-PS questionnaire.

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Tobacco detoxication cohort
    • Patients appointed in a tobacco detoxication consultation

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Evaluate the usefulness in the COPD early detection of the combination of the COPD-PS questionnaire and the COPD-6 device.
    • Time Frame: Up to 12 months after the first consultation
    • Verify if the combination of the COPDS-questionnaire (made of different items that allow the detection of chronic airflow obstruction) and the COPD-6 device (tool that measures the ventilatory capacity) is suitable for the COPD early detection.
