Cognitive Impairment in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: A Multifactorial Problem Screaming for Attention


Author(s): Vasileios Andrianopoulos

Cognitive impairment in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a prevalent symptom with detrimental consequences on many aspects of patients` functioning and health status, as well as it may affect the course of respiratory treatment. COPD pathology seems to be accountable for the high prevalence of cognitive impairment in those patients. It includes several determinants of cognitive impairment which present a potential independent and overlapping impact on cognitive function in COPD. Hypoxia and systemic effects of COPD are common risk factors for the development of cognitive deficits. Early detection of cognitive impairment in COPD patients is crucial in order to prevent, delay or even treat the progress of cognitive decline. Pulmonary rehabilitation as comprehensive therapeutic intervention can provide opportunities to attenuate cognitive decline in COPD.
