J.D. Clark, M.J. Medina, S. Batham, M.D. Tsao, H.C. Hu, C.C. 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). 39-49. 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. Home treatment of COPD exacerbation selected by DECAF score: a non-inferiority, randomised controlled trial. COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a common form of lung disease.COPD causes inflammation in your lungs, which narrows your … Global strategy for the diagnosis, management and prevention of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (updated 2016). Symptoms such as breathlessness, cough or sputum,7 oxygen saturation levels,7 new limitation of daily activities,6,7 clinical signs of severity such as use of accessory respiratory muscles,1,5 paradoxical chest wall movements,1,5 worsening or new onset central cyanosis,1,7 development of peripheral edema,1,7 hemodynamic instability,1 deteriorated mental status1,6,7 and comorbidities1 should all be assessed. Although the most effective duration of treatment is still to be defined,32 the recommended length of antibiotic therapy is usually 5–7 days (Evidence D)1 but treatment duration will depend on the antibiotic used. Fabbri, H. Magnussen, E.F. Wouters. COPD overview. Ther Adv Chronic Dis, 5 (2014), pp. C-reactive protein level and microbial aetiology in patients hospitalised with acute exacerbation of COPD. Because COPD can differ from one individual to the next, you need to work with your doctor to design a treatment plan appropriate to your condition and lifestyle.3 You might be able to manage your exacerbations with rescue bronchodilators, inhaled steroids, and/or oxygen supplementation at home. Niewoehner, T. Sandstrom, A.F. When should acute exacerbations of COPD be treated with systemic corticosteroids and antibiotics in primary care: a systematic review of current COPD guidelines. Vollenweider, H. Jarrett, C.A. 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.. The authors do not advise the use of COPD Assessment Test (CAT) score23 routinely in Portugal as it is not validated for the Portuguese population. Shatoria Grant These findings are expected for COPD exacerbation but not appropriate. Does eosinophilic COPD exacerbation have a better patient outcome than non-eosinophilic in the intensive care unit?. Int J Chron Obstruct Pulmon Dis, 10 (2015), pp. Hansen, G.C. Lun, M.S. 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. Global strategy for the diagnosis, management and prevention of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (2017 report). Pharmacological strategies to reduce exacerbation risk in COPD: a narrative review. 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. Cheng, V.L. Thorax 2018;79:713–22. M. Bafadhel, S. McKenna, S. Terry, V. Mistry, C. Reid, P. Haldar. 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. We performed a randomised, controlled trial in patients with acute exacerbations of COPD, comparing C-reactive protein (CRP)-guided antibiotic treatment to patient reported symptoms in accordance with the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) strategy, in order to show a reduction in antibiotic prescription.Patients hospitalised with acute exacerbations of COPD were randomised to … Antibiotics for exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. They may need to seek medical help at a hospital. If the patient is admitted to the ICU, besides the tests recommended in severe exacerbations, the Glasgow Coma Scale5 should be used, respiratory tract infections investigated25 and a hemoculture performed.24 According to the GOLD 2018 document only patients requiring non-invasive ventilation (NIV) or invasive ventilation (IV) should be hospitalized.1, Short-acting inhaled β2 agonists (SABAs) and short-acting muscarinic antagonists (SAMAs) remain the mainstay in the treatment of symptoms and airflow obstruction during COPD exacerbations.1,4,6 Although at the time of publication of the GOLD 2018 document there were no clinical studies evaluating the usefulness of long-acting β2 agonists (LABA) or long-acting muscarinic antagonists (LAMA) in exacerbations, the recommendation is to continue this medication during the exacerbation or to start it as soon as possible before hospital discharge.1 The LABA+LAMA combination does have a documented benefit in the reduction of exacerbations when prescribed to patients in the stable phase of COPD,26 particularly the indacaterol/glycopyrronium combination as demonstrated in the SPARK27 and FLAME28 studies. Corticosteroids seem to be beneficial to the whole population in terms of treatment success rate.37, Some studies suggest that corticosteroids may be less efficacious in treating acute COPD exacerbations in patients with lower levels of blood eosinophils.15,38, As for methylxanthines in the management of COPD exacerbations, current evidence does not support their use, given that the possible beneficial effects in lung function and clinical endpoints are modest and inconsistent, whilst adverse events are significant.1,4,6,31 Intravenous methylxanthines (theophylline or aminophylline) may be considered second-line therapy and used as an add-on when there is insufficient response.

Predictors of outcomes in COPD exacerbation cases presenting to the emergency department. The patient, patient's caregiver and the physician should be confident that he or she can successfully manage the new treatment plan. 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. Respiratory infectious phenotypes in acute exacerbation of COPD: an aid to length of stay and COPD Assessment Test. Inhaled short-acting beta-agonists are the cornerstone of drug therapy for acute exacerbations. However, it is yet to be established whether blood eosinophils can be used as a biomarker to predict ICS efficacy in terms of exacerbation prevention, as suggested by the WISDOM post hoc analysis.1, When treating an exacerbation adding oral or intravenous corticosteroids and/or antibiotics is recommended, depending on symptom severity and the presence of infection.1,4,6–8,31 Antibiotics should only be used for the treatment of infectious4,6,8,31 or severe exacerbations.31 The GOLD 2018 and NHS 2014 documents recommend antibiotics for patients with COPD exacerbations who have three cardinal symptoms – increase in dyspnea, sputum volume, and sputum purulence7 (Evidence B)1; have two of the cardinal symptoms, if increased purulence of sputum is one of the two symptoms7 (Evidence C)1; or require mechanical ventilation (invasive or non-invasive) (Evidence B).1, Antibiotics have been shown to reduce the risk of short-term mortality, treatment failure and sputum purulence, and a study in COPD patients with exacerbations requiring mechanical ventilation (invasive or non-invasive) indicated that not treating with antibiotics was associated with increased mortality and a greater incidence of secondary nosocomial pneumonia.1 A Cochrane review concluded that antibiotics for very severe COPD exacerbations showed wide and consistent beneficial effects across outcomes of patients admitted to an ICU,32 but this conclusion was based on data from a single study.32. Funding for this paper was provided by Novartis Portugal. Protocol for management of COPD exacerbation in primary care. Setting: Respiratory departments of three university hospitals in Denmark. in 2003, analyzed 44 patients with COPD exacerbation . Symptoms, correct use of inhaled therapy and adequate management of comorbidities should be re-assessed. Wedzicha, M. Decramer, J.H. The management of exacerbations in primary care should include maximization of bronchodilator therapy and systemic corticosteroids if not contraindicated (30mg prednisolone) for 7 days.1,7,8 Therapy with oral prednisolone is equally as effective as intravenous administration.1 The GOLD 2018 document recommends a dose of 40mg prednisone per day for 5 days1 whilst NICE 2016 recommends a dose of 30mg for 7–14 days, and further recommends that a course of corticosteroid treatment should not be longer than 14 days as there is no advantage in prolonged therapy.8 The use of systemic corticosteroids in COPD exacerbations have been shown to shorten recovery time, improve lung function, improve oxygenation, decrease the risk of early relapse and treatment failure, and decrease the length of hospitalization.1, A meta-analysis confirmed that the rate of treatment success increased with systemic corticosteroids in comparison to usual care of COPD exacerbations. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common, chronic respiratory condition that is both preventable and treatable. Adamson, J. Burns, P.G. The NHS protocol for management of COPD exacerbations in primary care states that bronchodilators and corticosteroids are the mainstay of exacerbation treatment. Identification of the underlying cause of COPD exacerbations and assessment of their severity is fundamental to guiding treatment. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a serious pulmonary condition. Blood eosinophils to direct corticosteroid treatment of exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a randomized placebo-controlled trial. Even when you're managing your COPD well, you could still end up in the hospital with a bad exacerbation. Referral to a Pulmonology Consultation if the patient is not already attending one is of the utmost importance. 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. C.H. A new follow-up consultation should be scheduled within the next 30–60 days. 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. Symptoms include breathing difficulty, cough, mucus (sputum) production and wheezing. Ther Adv Respir Dis, 7 (2013), pp. Funding was used to access all necessary scientific bibliography and cover meeting expenses. Several factors that can lead to a worsening of symptoms have been identified, and in 70% to 80% of COPD exacerbation cases, the precipitant factor is a respiratory tract infection,4 either viral4,9,14,15 or bacterial,4,9,15 but in about a-third of severe exacerbations of COPD a cause cannot be identified.1.

This should generally include reclassification of the patient according to GOLD criteria, optimization of pharmacological therapy, management of comorbidities, patient (or caregiver) education on the correct use of medications, referral to a Pulmonology Outpatient Clinic, if they are not already attending one, and a smoking cessation and respiratory rehabilitation program. 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. T.W. Chapman, J.

A new two-step algorithm for the treatment of COPD. van Eeden. M. Guimaraes, A. Bugalho, A.S. Oliveira, J. Moita, A. Marques. After an exacerbation is appropriately managed, a suitable discharge plan should be prepared. Patients who have had an episode of respiratory failure should have satisfactory oximetry or arterial blood gas results before discharge. Currently, there is no exact or consistent definition of a COPD exacerbation. Pulse oximetry should be performed on all patients.6 If a patient is referred to a hospital, arterial blood gases should be measured5,6,8,15,19–21 and a chest radiography should be done to exclude comorbidities and/or other pulmonary diseases.1,6,8,15,19 In these cases, it is also recommended that patients should have an ECG,1,6,19,20 whole blood count,1,6,8,20–22 and basic biochemical tests, including electrolyte concentrations,1,8,20,21 urea,8 glycemia1,20 and metabolic panel.6 Theophylline levels should be measured in patients on theophylline therapy at admission and blood cultures should be taken if the patient has fever.8 Culture of sputum samples is not recommended in routine practice, only if sputum is purulent,8 and the GOLD 2018 document recommends sputum culture and an antibiotic sensitivity test only if an infectious exacerbation does not respond to the empirical antibiotic treatment.1 Some authors mention eosinophilia blood count as an advisable procedure to guide COPD exacerbations therapy since it has been suggested that eosinophilic exacerbations may be more responsive to systemic steroids.1,15 Spirometry is not recommended during an exacerbation.1, If the exacerbation is severe and the patient hospitalized, brain natriuretic peptide and cardiac enzyme measurements levels should be considered, especially if the patient is not responding to conventional treatment.6 Also, pharyngeal swab or sputum should be tested for viruses and bacteria14,20,23 and serum C-reactive protein measured.14,20,24 Procalcitonin may guide antibiotic therapy since it has been suggested as a more specific marker for bacterial infections and that may be of value in deciding on antibiotics prescription.1 The Charlson comorbidity index,5,20,21,23 the modified Medical Research Council (mMRC) dyspnea scale,5,20,21,23 physical activity5 and general health5 should be assessed. Pulmonology (previously Revista Portuguesa de Pneumologia) is the official journal of the Portuguese Society of Pulmonology (Sociedade Portuguesa de Pneumologia/SPP). Usually initial empirical treatment encompasses aminopenicillin with clavulanic acid, a macrolide, or a tetracycline.1,8 However, the long-term use of macrolides may be associated with important side-effects and the risk of developing bacterial resistance.36 Sputum should be sent for culture (in the case of patients with frequent exacerbations, severe airflow limitation, and/or exacerbations requiring mechanical ventilation1), as gram-negative bacteria (e.g., Pseudomonas species) or resistant pathogens that are not sensitive to the above-mentioned antibiotics may be present.1. Likewise, many people who have COPD may not be diagnosed until the disease is advanced and interventions are less effective.To diagnose your condition, your doctor will review your signs and symptoms, discuss your family and medical history, an… Leuppi, P. Schuetz, R. Bingisser, M. Bodmer, M. Briel, T. Drescher. Mirici et al. A proper discharge plan will decrease symptom burden, contribute to a faster recovery, increase the patient's quality of life, and prevent or delay future exacerbations.
