Presentation Transcript

  1. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Micca Henry & Rachel Turley

  2. Learning Objective • At the end of the lecture students will be able to… • Recognize the signs and symptoms of COPD • Gain an understanding of the nutrition care process in patients with COPD

  3. What is COPD? • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease • Slow, progressive obstruction of the airways • Two subcategories of COPD include… • Emphysema • Chronic bronchitis

  4. Chronic Bronchitis • Inflammatory response scarring the lining of the bronchial tubes • Signs & Symptoms… • Productive cough • Restricted airflow • Hyperplastic mucus production

  5. Emphysema • Abnormal, permanent enlargement • And destruction of the alveoli • Symptoms • Breathlessness • Wheezing • Chest tightness and pain • Signs • Lips and fingernails turn blue • Tachycardia • Lack of mental allertness

  6. Staging of Disease Severity Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD)

  7. Epidemiology • 23.6 million men and women in US with COPD • 52 million globally • Studies estimate prevalence of stage-II or higher COPD at 10.1% with prevalence in men greater (11.8%) than women (8.5%) • Age adjustment is important COPD in people aged <45 yrs is low prevalence is highest in patients aged >65

  8. Epidemiology • In 1995, 553,000 treated for COPD ~ 2/3 >65 • Prevalence of COPD in those >65 4X greater than 45 -65 • 2007 estimated direct health care costs in US were $23.6 billion and overall cost burden was estimated at more than $42 billion

  9. Etiology • Primary etiology suggests smoking and 2nd hand smoke • Certain environmental toxins may play a role in small numbers of cases diagnosed where smoking is not evidenced

  10. Pathophysiology

  11. Pathophysiology

  12. Research • Nutritional supplementation & exercise • 32 moderate to severe malnourished COPD patients • Randomly divided into Nutr supplementation with Ex and control • Measures taken both before and after 12 week trial • BW and FFM increased significantly in treatment group • In addition major decrease in inflammatory response was noted

  13. Reasearch • Antioxidants, oxidative stress & pulmonary function • Cross sectional study of both COPD & asthma measuring association between antioxidant nutrients & markers of oxidative stress • FEV1 and FVC both measured • 218 subjects from 2 counties in New York State • Diet tracked for 12 mo period as well as serum levels • Study showed better results for those with greater intake, but pointed to more research needed

  14. Patient • Mrs. Bernhardt • Age 62, female • Stage 1 COPD (emphysema) 5 yrs ago • Smoked for 46 yrs quit 1 yr ago • Family Hx of cancer, mother & 2 aunts died from lung cancer

  15. Patient cont. • Symptoms • Shortness of breath • Dark brownish-green phlegm • Early satiety • Confusion in the morning • Bacterial pneumonia Dx

  16. Nutrition hx • Fills up quickly, meal prep exhausting, loose dentures • 24-hr recall ~600-700 kcals • High in empty CHO!!!!!!! • Very low Pro as well

  17. Recommended intake • Mifflin St. Jeor for Women W 1.5 AF for COPD • ~ 1600 kcals/day • Pro 1.2g/kg for COPD so 65 g Pro/day • Some recommendation of nutrient balance 30% CHO, 50% lipid, 20% Pro in order to reduce CO2 production

  18. PES # 1 Inadequate energy intake RT early satiety and fatigue secondary to COPD AEB reported energy intake of 600 to 700 kcals which is 900 to a 1000 kcals under predicted energy needs of ~ 1600 kcals

  19. PES # 2 Inadequate vitamin and mineral intake RT food and nutrition knowledge deficit AEB 24 hr recall analysis and lack of supplementation

  20. intervention • Address PES #1 • Establish an ideal diet plan that will gradually increase kcals and introduce the concept of nutrient dense foods ie fruit and vegetables • Establish a rapport and increase Mrs. B’s knowledge base • Discuss with MD introducing vitamin & mineral supplement.
