Background and Aims: Spanish chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) guideline classifies COPD into 4 clinical phenotypes: nonexacerbator (A), asthma-COPD overlap (B), exacerbator with emphysema(C) and exacerbator with bronchitis (D). Methods: A cross-sectional study of quality of life (QOL) based on COPD phenotypes utilizing St George’s Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ-c) conducted in University Malaya Medical Center from 1 June 2017 – 31 May 2018. Results: Of 220 patients, 189 patients with post bronchodilator force expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1)/force vital capacity (FVC) of <0.70 were recruited. Their demographic, clinical characteristics and SGRQ-c score are as shown in Table 1. Patients with phenotype C and D had poorer modified medical research center (MMRC) performance status and global initiative for COPD (GOLD) class based on FEV1. Nevertheless, only patients with phenotype D had significant higher total SGRQ-c score than others. They also scored significant higher in sub-components of COPD symptoms, activities and impacts. Patients with phenotypes B had numerically higher SGRQ-c total and symptoms score than those with phenotype A and C. The total and sub-components SGRQ-c score of patients with phenotype A and C were almost similar. Conclusion: Patients with phenotype D had poorest QOL, followed by phenotype B. These groups of patients need additional medical attention, in terms of pharmacology treatment, physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
