Background and Aim: Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have lung function impairment and reduced ability to perform physical activity, which together reduces the quality of their life. The aim of this study was to determine the health status of patients with COPD in the bronchoscopy section of a hospital in Kerman, Iran.
Methods: In this cross‐sectional study included 96 patients (53 outpatients and 43 inpatients) with diagnosis of COPD who were admitted in the bronchoscopy ward of a hospital in Kerman, Iran. Sampling was performed randomly. For data collection, the individual information form and the COOP/WONCA questionnaire were used. Data analysis was performed using SPSS-18.
Results: The majority of patients with COPD were men and were 61‒80 years of age. Individuals with a diploma and higher education had higher health status. There was a significant positive correlation between all of the dimensions (physical function, mental status, daily activities, social activities, changes in health and general health status) of the questionnaire and the age and length of stay in hospital. Between mean scores of smokers, married and admitted patients, with all aspects of the questionnaire were significant (p<0.05) except changes in health.  
Conclusion: It seems that by measuring the changes in the health status of patients with COPD, assessing the impact of receiving treatment and further studies in this area, it would be possible to prioritize and plan large-scale programs to address them.
Keywords: Health Status, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), COOP/WONCA questionnaire
