research is an analysis of deaths caused by COPD and asthma in Pomerania
region in 2001-2008.
Aim. Assessment of structure and changes in deaths caused by pulmonary
obstructive diseases in 2001-2008.
Methods. Data obtained in the Central Statistical Office regarding COPD
and asthma were analyzed.
Results. The average mortality rate in 2001-2008 for COPD was 15.35/
100000 and for asthma 1.92/100000. Patients suffering from COPD in
most cases (74%) died in hospitals. In contrast, deaths caused by asthma
(82%) usually occurred outside health care institutions (p<0.001). The
mortality rate of COPD increased (from 12.5/100000 to 17.57/100000)
(p=0.0004), whereas the mortality caused by asthma decreased in the
analyzed period of time from 2.5/100 000 to 1.67/100 000 (p=0,02).
