Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbations: latest evidence and clinical implications. 2. J.A. Many patients experience exacerbations and some require Emergency Room visits and hospitalization. Clark, M.J. Medina, S. Batham, M.D. Celik. Chapman, C.F. Int J Chron Obstruct Pulmon Dis, 10 (2015), pp. Background: In the absence of clear differences in effectiveness and cost-effectiveness between hospital-at-home schemes and usual hospital care, patient preference plays an important role. Admissions to hospital for COPD are highest in winter and early spring and are consistent with the trend for acute respiratory infections, such as rhinovirus (common cold), influenza, pneumonia and acute bronchitis (Figure 3).

An 85-day multicenter trial. Camp, D.D. The goal of antibiotic therapy is generally to suppress this bacterial growth a bit, not to completely sterilize the patient's lungs (which is impossible in this situation). The NHS protocol for management of COPD exacerbations in primary care states that bronchodilators and corticosteroids are the mainstay of exacerbation treatment.7 However, a systematic review of 19 COPD guidelines reported that the criteria for treating patients with antibiotics were largely based on an increase in respiratory symptoms, while systemic corticosteroids were often universally recommended for all patients with acute exacerbations.33 The authors also concluded that current COPD guidelines are of little help in identifying patients with acute exacerbations who are likely to benefit from treatment with systemic corticosteroids and antibiotics in primary care, which might contribute to overuse or inappropriate use of either treatment. F. Rivas-Ruiz, M. Redondo, N. Gonzalez, S. Vidal, S. Garcia, I. Lafuente. Vollenweider et al. Inhaled short-acting beta-agonists are the cornerstone of drug therapy for acute exacerbations. During the follow-up consultation (three months for moderate exacerbations and 4–6 weeks for severe exacerbations), spirometry and arterial blood gases should be measured.

Novartis Portugal had no role in the collection, analysis and interpretation of data, in the writing of the paper and in the decision to submit the paper for publication. It's caused by long-term exposure to irritating gases or particulate matter, most often from cigarette smoke. Am J Respir Crit Care Med, 186 (2012), pp. COPD is commonly misdiagnosed — former smokers may sometimes be told they have COPD, when in reality they may have simple deconditioning or another less common lung condition. This work can range from peer-reviewed original articles to review articles, editorials, and opinion articles. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. In-hospital mortality for a severe exacerbation of COPD ranges from 8–15%, while the one-year mortality after hospital discharge can be as high as 40%. COPD causes significant morbidity and mortality, and is frequently placed in the top four leading causes of death worldwide . 848-854. The infection is typically the result of a virus, but bacteria or other organisms can also be responsible. There are several diagnostic tools that can be used to assess an exacerbation and its severity, which will in turn guide treatment, and prognostic scores should be used to predict the risk of future exacerbations. and congestive heart failure as well as a history of steroid- induced p. Are IV or oral steroids better for treatment of acute COPD exacerbation?. Int J Chron Obstruct Pulmon Dis, 10 (2015), pp. Many patients experience COPD exacerbations and some of these require Emergency Room (ER) visits and hospitalizations.

In addition, obtaining a thorough, detailed and accurate history can help the provider anticipate likely outcomes and responses to prehospital treatmen… The authors propose that the patient should be prescribed an anti-pneumoccocal vaccine 10 to 20 days after discharge from the ER or Hospital. It is important to identify the underlying cause of an exacerbation as this will guide the therapeutic strategy. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a serious pulmonary condition. After an exacerbation is appropriately managed, a suitable discharge plan should be prepared. On discharge from a moderate exacerbation, bronchodilation should be optimized, anti-pneumococcal vaccination should be prescribed, and a smoking cessation and respiratory rehabilitation plan should be prepared. The use of systemic corticosteroids during exacerbation decreased treatment failure rate by 46% and was associated with a mean decrease in hospital length of … EXACERBATIONS of COPD which are more frequent in the winter months in temperate climates … COPD in the Hospital and the Transition Back to Home A big concern for people with COPD is getting sick with a COPD flare-up and being admitted to the hospital. In the case of a patient who has had a severe exacerbation, requiring hospitalization, the patient should be reclassified as a frequent exacerbator. Global strategy for the diagnosis, management and prevention of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (2017 report). They may need to seek medical help at a hospital. COPD overview. The dosage of maintenance bronchodilators should be increased6,17 and the patient been given an oral corticosteroid6,17,18 for 5 days.1,38,39 If the exacerbation is infectious4,8,31 an antibiotic should be given.1,7. M. Bafadhel, S. McKenna, S. Terry, V. Mistry, M. Pancholi, P. Venge. These data suggest that the individualized care undertaken in this study can impact COPD morbidity and mortality after an acute exacerbation.40 All patients who have had a severe exacerbation should be re-assessed 4–6 weeks after discharge from hospital,1 given an anti-pneumococcal vaccination prescription, and a smoking cessation and respiratory rehabilitation plan should be prepared – Fig. A decision tree to assess short-term mortality after an emergency department visit for an exacerbation of COPD: a cohort study. Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may experience an acute worsening of respiratory symptoms that results in additional therapy; this event is defined as a COPD exacerbation (AECOPD). J.M. J.D. Symptoms, correct use of inhaled therapy and adequate management of comorbidities should be re-assessed. Cochrane Database Syst Rev, 12 (2012), pp. Hansen, G.C. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a serious pulmonary condition, which is slowly progressive with systemic repercussions; it mainly affects people over 40 years old.1 However, COPD is preventable and treatable. It is possible to prevent some COPD flare-ups or exacerbations (x-saa-cer-bay-shuns), or at least catch them early so they don’t become serious. Short-term vs conventional glucocorticoid therapy in acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: the REDUCE randomized clinical trial. In Portugal, hospitalizations due to COPD between 2009 and 2016 decreased by 8%, but they still represented 8049 hospitalized patients in 2016. 662-671. Patients with mild exacerbations should be re-assessed after three months, with spirometry and a re-evaluation of the GOLD degree and, when appropriate, reclassification. N. Roche, J.M. A study has found that fast response to noninvasive ventilation (NIV) following acute exacerbation in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is associated with NIV success and significantly lower in-hospital mortality.. C.T. Transition between inpatient hospital settings and community or care home settings for adults with social care needs J. Ferreira, M. Drummond, N. Pires, G. Reis, C. Alves, C. Robalo-Cordeiro. C. Llor, L. Bjerrum, A. Munck, M.P. This study investigates patient preference for treatment place, associated factors and patient satisfaction with a community-based hospital-at-home scheme for COPD exacerbations. Patients (or home caregivers) should be given appropriate information to enable them to fully understand the correct use of medications, including inhalers and oxygen, and, if necessary, arrangements for follow-up and home care (such as visiting nurse, oxygen delivery, referral for other support) should be made. Appropriate management of COPD exacerbations represents an important clinical challenge.3 In 70% to 80% of COPD exacerbations, the precipitant factor is a respiratory tract infection,4 but in about a third of severe exacerbations of COPD a cause cannot be identified,1 which hampers proper guidance of the therapeutic strategy. This will depend on the severity of the exacerbation, but should generally include reclassification of the patient according to the GOLD criteria,1 optimization of pharmacological therapy,1,4,8 management of comorbidities, patient (or home caregiver) education on the correct use of medications,1,8 referral to a Pulmonology Consultation if they are not already attending one, and a smoking cessation and pulmonary rehabilitation program.
