Predictors of Hospitalized Exacerbations and Mortality in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
Exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) carry significant consequences for patients and are responsible for considerable health-care costs-particularly if hospitalization is required. Despite the importance of hospitalized exace

Hospital management of acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The course of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is often complicated by episodes of acute worsening of respiratory symptoms, which may lead to escalation of therapy and occasionally emergency department visits and hospitalization. Acute ex

Role of infection in exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
In this review, we present the latest findings on the cause, pathogenesis and management of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and an infective phenotype.

Airway microbiome dynamics in exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Specific bacterial species are implicated in the pathogenesis of exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, recent studies of clinically stable COPD patients have demonstrated a greater diversity of airway microbiota, who

Systemic corticosteroids for acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are a major cause of hospital admission and mortality. They contribute to long-term decline in lung function, physical capacity and quality of life. The most common causes are infect

Sputum eicosanoid profiling in exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Eicosanoids are small lipid molecules with diverse biological functions in the airways.

Tryptophan catabolism in acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Exacerbations are a leading cause of morbidity in COPD. The objective of this study was to identify metabolomic biomarkers of acute exacerbations of COPD (AECOPD).

Predictors of exacerbation frequency in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are sporadic, acute worsening of symptoms. Identifying predictors of exacerbation frequency may facilitate medical interventions that reduce exacerbation frequency and severity. The object

The prevalence of pulmonary embolism among patients suffering from acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The clinical diagnosis of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) in patients with acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is often difficult due to the similarity in the presenting symptoms of the two conditions. The purpose of this
