    3 : KEY1: FEV1 A FVC<75-80% of predicted suggests restrictive disease. An FEV1% <70% suggests obstructive disease.
    4 : KEY 2 Although COPD remains more common in men, recent data suggest that more women die of COPD than men.
    5 : KEY 3: prognosis The FEV1% has been shown to be less predictable of prognosis in COPD patients. New scoring systems for symptoms include the COPD Assessment Test (CAT) score and a modified Medical Research Council Dyspnea Scale (mMRC) score <2 and 0-1 exacerbations in the previous year.
    6 : KEY 4 The combination of bupropion and nicotine replacement has clearly been demonstrated to have better outcomes for smoking cessation than either alone.
    7 : KEY 5 Pulmonary rehabilitation has been shown to be beneficial for patients whose FEV1% is < 50%.
    8 : KEY 6 Macrolides given daily have been shown to decrease the number of exacerbations in COPD patients.
    9 : KEY 7 Continuous supplemental oxygen improves the survival in patients with severe COPD.
    10 : KEY 8 Noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) may be beneficial in some patients with severe acute exacerbations of COPD.
