Abstract: The indices of external respiration function, level of surface-active fraction of lung surfactant system (LSS), the left ventricular ejection fraction were studied in a group of 60 patients with COPD associated with IHD. Patients were divided into 2 subgroups depending on the administered therapy: subgroup 1 – 30 patients that received standard therapy; subgroup 2 – 30 patients that in addition to standard therapy received tincture of Echinacea and Chlorophyllipt.  The obtained results confirmed reduction of the level of surface-active fraction of lung surfactant system (LSS) in patients of both subgroups that improved under the influence of the administered therapy, though more significant dynamics of mentioned index was observed in patients of subgroup 2 concomitantly with improvement of indices of external respiration function and functional reserves of the myocardium. Addition of Echinacea and Chlorophyllipt preparations to complex therapy will enable prevention of complications development and will improve disease prognosis in such category of patients.
