Abstract

The statistical correlation between cigarette smoking and COPD is already known. Extensive epidemiologic surveys have shown different indexes of risk for COPD in respect to sex. Females, in respect to males, show a lower risk for COPD in relation to age and a higher risk in relation to smoking and base airways obstruction. Furthermore females show a lower mortality rate from COPD, in respect to males. Our data, regarding a 200 COPD patients random case series, show a prevalence of male subjects (60%). Predicted lung function data show that females have more favorable airways patency indexes than males. Real lung function data show that females still maintain this advantage with the developing of airways obstruction; this is an age independent feature. The meaning of such sex related lung function difference in terms of COPD risk and mortality rate from COPD is unknown.
