- •RV diastolic diameter n is associated with unfavorable prognostic markers in COPD, such as worsening lung function and functional capacity.
- •Echocardiogram may be a useful tool to identify patients who need more aggressive strategies to control the evolution of the disease with potential impact to pulmonary rehabilitation.
