A comparison of albuterol treatments using hypertonic saline (3%) versus standard saline (0.9%) in patients with admitted patients COPD in regard to Modified Borg Dyspnea scale scores after 4 treatments within 24 hours.
A clinically significant difference exists between albuterol treatments with nebulized 3% saline versus standard saline, for improvements in the patient's modified Borg dyspnea score during an acute exacerbation of COPD.Study
This study will involve 146 patients admitted to Doctors Hospital in Columbus, Ohio from September 2014 through September 2015 with a clinical diagnosis of an acute exacerbation of COPD, defined as an increase in the patient's dyspnea, cough, or change in sputum consistency/volume/color from the patient's baseline during stable conditions.
Patients will be randomly assigned to 2.5 mg albuterol treatments with either normal saline, as is the standard, or hypertonic saline.
Once the patient is enrolled, they will be randomly assigned to 2.5 mg albuterol treatments with either normal saline, as is the standard, or hypertonic saline. They will then receive the 2.5mg albuterol treatment, and saline solution as determined by the randomization plan (Group 1 will receive 0.9% saline and Group 2 will receive 3% saline), every six hours for at least the first 24 hours, with allowance for PRN (pro re nata= as needed) use every four hours by patient request.
The patient's dyspnea will be evaluated prior to starting the treatment and after the intervention period is completed using the Modified Borg Dyspnea Scale.

A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.
Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.

COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is used for a number of conditions including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which all lead to the airways in the lungs becoming damaged and thus narrower, making inhalation and exhalation harder...
