Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Micca Henry & Rachel Turley

learning objective
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
what is copd
What is COPD?
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
    • Slow, progressive obstruction of the airways
    • Two subcategories of COPD include…
      • Emphysema
      • Chronic bronchitis
chronic bronchitis
Chronic Bronchitis
  • Inflammatory response scarring the lining of the bronchial tubes
  • Signs & Symptoms…
    • Productive cough
    • Restricted airflow
    • Hyperplastic mucus production
  • 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
staging of disease severity
Staging of Disease Severity

Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD)

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
patient cont
Patient cont.
  • Symptoms
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dark brownish-green phlegm
  • Early satiety
  • Confusion in the morning
  • Bacterial pneumonia Dx
nutrition hx
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
recommended intake
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
pes 1
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

pes 2
PES # 2

Inadequate vitamin and mineral intake RT food and nutrition knowledge deficit AEB 24 hr recall analysis and lack of supplementation

  • 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.
