Can NPT be used to distinguish eosinophilic inflammatory phenotypes in COPD?

Abstract:
Near-patient testing (NPT) is increasingly being used in the management of chronic conditions. In COPD, NPT devices include the spirometer and saturation probe, but these do not directly guide treatment. The blood eosinophil count at a cut off of ≥2% has been shown to determine which patients should receive corticosteroids for exacerbations. An NPT that accurately correlates with whole blood eosinophil counts would be useful.
