Effects of zolpiden and triazolan on sleep and respiration in mild to moderate chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Eur Respir J, 17pp. Both host and pathogen factors are involved in development of acute bacterial exacerbations Figure 1. Pathogenesis of infectious exacerbations Our understanding of acute exacerbation pathogenesis, especially in relation to bacterial infection, has seen significant progress over the last few years.

These include our new understanding of the importance of exacerbations in the course of COPD, the role of infection in exacerbations, the high rates of relapse with an adequate initial clinical response, and the role played by chronic infection in the pathogenesis of COPD. Lancet, 1pp. Antibiotics for exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. In the first such analysis published inonly nine trials met quality criteria and a small but significant beneficial effect of antibiotics over placebo in acute exacerbation was demonstrated Saint et al Further studies are required to elucidate the role of physiopathological alterations during sleep, the importance of nocturnal desaturations and the role of oxygen therapy and ventilatory support, as well as the utility of some drugs that could improve sleep quality and gas exchange in these patients.

Many of these deficiencies are explained by the fact that these trials are performed for regulatory approval of the drugs, therefore are designed for demonstrating noninferiority rather than differences between the two antibiotics. Results of the GLOBE and MOSAIC trials demonstrate that in vitro microbiologic superiority of the fluoroquinolones does translate to greater in vivo effectiveness in treating patients with acute exacerbation.

Placebo-controlled antibiotic trials in exacerbations of COPD demonstrate significant clinical benefits of antibiotic treatment in moderate and severe episodes. The frequency of exacerbations varies widely between patients, but is generally correlated with the severity and duration of underlying COPD. Introduction Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and the 6th leading cause worldwide.

Eur Respir J, 31pp. Table 5 Limitations of published placebo-controlled antibiotic trials in acute exacerbations of COPD. Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. Are you a health professional able to prescribe or dispense drugs? Similarly, exacerbations are in many instances induced by infection, therefore eradication of the offending infectious pathogen should be a goal of treatment.

Interestingly, this classification was not designed to be a classification of severity of exacerbations, but has become so over time. Our understanding of the etiology, pathogenesis and consequences of acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD has increased substantially in the last decade.

Cli Sci, 84pp. Diesel exhaust particles antbonisen human airway epithelial cells to produce cytokines relevant to anthonixen inflammation in anthonosen. COPD, exacerbation, bronchitis, antibiotics. This needs to be followed by determining the severity of an exacerbation, the probability that it is bacterial and whether antibiotics are indicated.

Among the therapeutic options for the treatment of acute exacerbations are antibiotics. Anthonisen classification of COPD exacerbations based on cardinal symptoms. Furthermore, the benefit with antibiotics is more marked early in the course of the exacerbation, suggesting that antibiotics hasten resolution of symptoms Allegra et al ; Miravitlles 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 antbonisen GOLD Exercise hemodinamics and gas exchange in patients with chronic obstruction pulmonary disease, sleep desaturation, and daytime PaO 2 above 60 mm Hg.


Am Rev Resp Dis,pp. Attiya Siddiqi and Sanjay Sethi. Cochrane Database Syst Rev. Respiratory viruses symptoms, and inflammatory markers in acute exacerbations and stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. 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.

In choosing an antibiotic, other considerations are also important.

Chest, 85pp. Severity has been also measured by site of care, with hospitalized exacerbations regarded as severe, outpatient exacerbations regarded as moderate and self medicated exacerbations as mild GOLD Severity of exacerbation Type of exacerbation Characteristics Severe Type 1 Increased dyspnea, sputum volume and sputum purulence Moderate Type 2 Any 2 of the above 3 cardinal symptoms Mild Type 3 Any 1 of the above 3 cardinal symptoms and 1 or more of the following minor symptoms or signs – Cough.

Any stimulus that acutely increases airway inflammation could lead to increased bronchial tone, edema in the bronchial wall and mucus production. Chest,pp. Nocturnal hypoxemia and quality of sleep in patients with chronic obstructive lung disease. These therapies include bronchodilators, corticosteroids, antimicrobials, mucolytics, and expectorants and, in the more severe cases, oxygen supplementation and mechanical ventilation for acute respiratory failure.

Placebo-controlled antibiotic trials In contrast to the magnitude of the problem of exacerbations of COPD, resulting in significant antibiotic consumption, there are only a handful of placebo-controlled trials in this disease. Airway inflammation and etiology of acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis. Antibiotic comparison trials Though one can be quite confident that antibiotics are useful in moderate to severe exacerbations of COPD, there is considerable discussion as to antibiotic choice, especially for initial empiric therapy Bach et al ; Balter et al ; Celli and MacNee ; Sethi and Murphy ; GOLD Int J Clin Pract.
