Summary: 
Proposal of a diagnosis algorithm leading to right heart catheterisation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). When severe left heart disease or an associated respiratory disease is highlighted, the indication of right heart catheterisation should be reconsidered after introducing an appropriate treatment. ABG: arterial blood gases; Ppa: pulmonary artery pressure; PH: pulmonary hypertension; DL,CO: diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide; HRCT: high-resolution computed tomography; V′/Q′: ventilation/perfusion ratio; TEE: transoesophageal echocardiography; CMR: cardiac magnetic resonance.
