Optimizing antibiotic selection in treating COPD exacerbations

The increase in symptoms should be of at least 24 hours duration and should be of greater intensity than their normal day to day variability. Results of the meta-analyses and this study, along with those of the previous classic large placebo-controlled trial conducted by Anthonisen and colleagues show that antibiotics are beneficial in the treatment of moderate to severe exacerbations Anthonisen et al ; Allegra et al ; Nouira et fpoc ; Ram et al Acquisition of a new bacterial strain and occurrence of exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Hypoxic ventilatory response decreases during sleep in normal men. Limitations of published placebo-controlled antibiotic trials in acute exacerbations of COPD.

Optimizing antibiotic selection in treating COPD exacerbations

Several studies have now demonstrated that certain patient characteristics that antedate anthonisem onset of the exacerbation impact the outcome of the exacerbation Ball et al ; Adams et al ; Dewan et al ; Miravitlles et al ; Groenewegen et al ; Wilson et al Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg.

Systemic corticosteroids for acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Early use of non-invasive ventilation for acute exacerbations of chronic antgonisen pulmonary disease on general respiratory wards: Respiration, 68pp. The subsequent discussion will focus on the role of antibiotics in the treatment of acute exacerbation. No systemic corticosteroids were administered.

Antibiotics for exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. A common cause of exacerbations, the rhinovirus, demonstrates considerable antigenic variation among its more than serotypes, allowing for recurrent infections.

The effect of short and long term oxygen.

Mortality and mortality-related factors after hospitalization for acute exacerbation of COPD. This paradox is likely related to several short-comings in design of these trials Table 5 Sethi b. The eloc virus demonstrates drift in the antigenic makeup of its major surface proteins, thereby leading to recurrent infections. Fpoc, it needs to tested in outpatients with exacerbations, where the majority of exacerbations are treated, patients are not as closely supervised and other supportive care is less rigorous.

Respiratory viruses implicated in COPD are able to cause acute tracheo-bronchial infections in healthy hosts, clinically referred to as acute bronchitis.


Other important considerations in antibiotic prescribing are safety and tolerability of the agent, drug interactions and finally cost of treatment. Also missing in both definitions is the clinical exclusion of epco that could present in a similar manner, such as pneumonia, congestive heart failure, upper respiratory infection, noncompliance with medications etc.

Corresponding clinical manifestations are dyspnea, cough, increased sputum production, tenacity and purulence along with worsening gas exchange, which are the cardinal manifestations of an exacerbation. Clin Sci Mol Med, 55pp. These pro-inflammatory actions could potentially induce the pathophysiological manifestations that characterize acute exacerbation when a viral agent infects the lower airway of a patient with COPD. Indeed, environmental pollutants, both particulate matter, such as PM, and nonparticulate gases, such anthoniaen ozone, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, are capable of inducing inflammation in vitro and in vivo Devalia et al ; Ohtoshi et al ; Rudell et al Most exacerbations require a multi-pronged approach that utilizes several therapeutic modalities simultaneously, either to relieve symptoms, to treat the underlying cause or provide support till recovery occurs Sethi ; GOLD Though simple and clinically useful, this definition is narrow in its scope and several important symptoms of exacerbation such as chest congestion, chest tightness, fatigue and sleep disturbance are not included.
