Body: Objective: To compare the DOSE and ADO indices with a range of outcomes across multiple
COPD populations, as gauges of COPD severity.
Design: Real-life observational cohort study.
Study population: 5486 primary care COPD patients : 4400 in the Optimal Patient Care database;
370 in Devon UK; 154 in a pulmonary rehabilitation programme rehabilitation in Holland; 562 in
PRAXIS-study, Sweden.
Main outcome measures: DOSE and ADO associations with CCQ and SGRQ; current and future
exacerbations and hospital admissions and mortality.
Results: Both DOSE and ADO indices inversely correlated with CCQ and SGRQ (p<0.001), DOSE was
stronger across all items and with healthcare consumption markers (treatment-defined exacerbations,
out of hours general practitioner visits and hospital admissions). DOSE, but not ADO, predicted future
exacerbations and admissions. Both indices predicted mortality, ADO was the stronger of the two.

hospital admissions
Outcome Measure
DOSE index P-value ADO index P-value
Bocholtz (n=154)
Health Status (CCQ score)
<0.001 -0.41
PRAXIS-cohort (n=562)
Health Status (CCQ score)
<0.001 -0.62
Devon Audit (n=370)
Current exacerbations
<0.001 0.08
OPC (n=4400)
Current exacerbations
<0.001 0.10
OPC (n=4400)
Future hospital admissions
<0.001 0.04
Conclusions: The DOSE index is better than the ADO index for predicting a wide range of outcomes in
a diversity of COPD patients. The DOSE index is suitable a tool in routine clinical practice to identify
those with current symptoms and future risk of exacerbations, admissions and mortality
