Extract

Chronic respiratory diseases are a significant burden to health care. Using a standard methodology, the BOLD study reported very different prevalences of chronic airway obstruction across a large number of countries. Our study aimed to investigate lung function and prevalence of chronic airway obstruction in the general population of Lausanne, a city of approximately 120'000 inhabitants.

PneumoLaus is a single-centre, cross-sectional study of a random sample of non-institutionalised adults aged 45-85 years from various ethnic backgrounds. It is embedded within the CoLaus cohort investigating since 2003 the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases and their risk factors. Spirometry was performed according to the ATS/ERS guidelines 2005 and interpreted using reference values from the Global Lung Function Initiative (GLI) 2012. If FEV1/FVC or FVC was less than the Lower Limit of Normal (LLN), spirometry was repeated after administrating 4x100 μg salbutamol. Chronic airway obstruction was defined as FEV1/FVC < LLN after bronchodilation (BD). Reversible airway obstruction was defined as FEV1/FVC < LLN before BD and >LLN after BD. Possible lung restriction was defined as FVC < LLN after BD. Respiratory status was obtained by a questionnaire assessing respiratory symptoms, exposure to potential risk factors and respiratory diagnoses.
