  1. Data are means.
  2. COPD, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease; PF, physical functioning; RP, role limitations due to physical problems; BP, bodily pain; SF, social functioning; MH, mental health; RE, role limitations due to emotional problems; VT, vitality; GH, general health; PCS, Physical Component Score; MCS, Mental Component Score; EQ-5D, EuroQol 5 Dimensions; EQ VAS, EuroQol Visual Analogue Scale.
  3. The N does not sum up to the total number of the study population. This is because when a patient has two or more comorbidities, it will be handled into two or more of the groups.
