Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a respiratory disorder characterized by chronic and recurrent airflow obstruction, which increases airway resistance. About 75% of COPD patients do not have established diagnosis, most of them in mild degree, but also 4% in severe and 1% in very severe degree of COPD. The reason for that are slow progression of symptoms as cough and exercise intolerance, as well as development of disease in the elderly. Integrated software suite is developed to assist clinicians in the analysis and interpretation of pulmonary function tests data to better detect, diagnose and treat COPD conditions. A total sum of 385 patient reports with previously diagnosed COPD or normal lung conditions by clinicians was tested with this tool. With diagnosed COPD by clinicians there were 252 patients, and even in 92% the software has performed the classification of COPD in the same way as doctors. The software classification of patients with normal lung function was 90.97%.
