- right ventricular function and GOLD stages [ Time Frame: cross sectional ]To compare right ventricular function, evaluated by a non-invasive method such as echocardiography, with the GOLD stages in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients.
- Right ventricular function and FEV1. [ Time Frame: cross sectional ]Compare right ventricular function, evaluated by a non-invasive method such as echocardiography, tricuspid annulus plane systolic excursion (TAPSE),pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PAPs) and fractional area change (FAC), with the GOLD stages in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients.
- ECG and echocardiography parameters of cor pulmonale [ Time Frame: cross sectional ]The correlation between right ventricular function and the electrocardiographic parameters of cor pulmonale.
- Right ventricle function and 6M-WT. [ Time Frame: cross sectional ]Evaluate the correlation between the hemodynamic indices of right ventricle and the six minute walking test (6M-WT).
