The Role of Physical Activity for Acute Exacerbations of COPD

The investigators plan to study the association between physical activity, malnutrition and sarcopenia and the occurrence of acute exacerbations of COPD / the evolution of the COPD assessm...

Bronchial Infection in Patients With COPD and Frequent Exacerbations.

Hypothesis: 1. Innate immunity is altered in certain patients with COPD and frequent exacerbations, a fact that makes them more susceptible to being infected by bacteria. ...

Effect of Tiotropium on Inflammation and Exacerbations in COPD

Patients with COPD experience exacerbations that are a major cause of morbidity. Exacerbations are associated with increased airway and systemic inflammation and those experiencing frequen...

Immunization To Prevent Acute COPD Exacerbations

Prospective multicenter observational study, to evaluate the impact of routine clinical practice vaccination with PCV13 on the reduction of the risk of moderate/severe COPD exacerbations

Two Different Dosages of Nebulized Steroid Versus Parenteral Steroid in the Management of COPD Exacerbations

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common disease that has a chronic and progressive course. Patients with COPD may have exacerbations one to four times in a year. Numbers o...

Real-time breath analysis reveals specific metabolic signatures of COPD exacerbations.

Exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are defined by acute worsening of respiratory symptoms leading to a change in therapy. Identifying altered metabolic processes in patients...

Comparing severity scores in exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Prognostic scores help identify patients at a high risk of mortality in exacerbations of COPD. The DECAF score has been reported to perform better than other severity scores in predicting mortality fr...

Emergency department antibiotic use for exacerbations of COPD.

COPD is the third leading cause of death, with acute exacerbations accounting for 1.5 million emergency department (ED) visits annually. Guidelines include recommendations for antibiotic therapy, thou...

Exacerbations of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease - Diagnostic Approach, Management and Follow-up Care.

The stepwise approach of COPD therapy.

The goal of pharmacologic therapy of stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is to reduce symptoms, improve exercise intolerance and health-related quality of life, and to reduce exacerbat...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.

The prevention of recurrences or exacerbations of a disease that already has been diagnosed. This also includes prevention of complications or after-effects of a drug or surgical procedure.

The most common clinical variant of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, characterized by recurrent acute exacerbations of neurologic dysfunction followed by partial or complete recovery. Common clinical manifestations include loss of visual (see OPTIC NEURITIS), motor, sensory, or bladder function. Acute episodes of demyelination may occur at any site in the central nervous system, and commonly involve the optic nerves, spinal cord, brain stem, and cerebellum. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)

A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form. (From Ann Neurol 1994;36 Suppl:S73-S79; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)
