Özet

Introduction: The number of studies that target nonpharmacologic treatments for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease ( COPD) are increasing because no existing pharmacologic treatment modality for COPD leads to significant improvement in lung function. Positive effects can be observed in patients with COPD using nutritional support alone or as an adjunct to exercise. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the awareness of chest physicians about the nutritional state of patients with COPD.
