  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    The diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) should be suspected in patients with risk factors (primarily a history of smoking) who report dyspnea at rest[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The severity of COPD correlates with various arrhythmic manifestations such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and either sustained or nonsustained ventricular tachycardia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Edema in cor pulmonale.
