SESSION TITLE: Novel Predictors of COPD Outcomes

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PRESENTED ON: Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 03:00 PM

PURPOSE: Hand grip strength is a strong predictor of adverse health outcomes in the elderly, but its determinants and clinical impact among smokers with or at risk for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is still unclear. We aimed to test associations of hand grip strength with measures of body composition (pectoralis muscle area, subcutaneous fat), imaging phenotypes and lung function in subjects with or at risk for COPD. We also sought to evaluate the contribution of grip strength to acute respiratory events.
