Objectification assess the health status of COPD patients poses numerous problems arising from the complexity of both the disease and medical co-operation with the patient. So far, the methods adopted do not correlate with the quality of life. Also, the discrepancy in the evaluation of their symptoms by patients leads to an underestimation of obtained information. Recently proposed a test study of COPD has been validated in many countries and can be implemented into daily practice.

Key words: COPD, assessment of health status, quality of life
