Post date: Apr 29, 2017 10:40:58 AM
This document provides clinical recommendations for treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbations.
The Task Force provided recommendations related to corticosteroid therapy, antibiotic therapy, noninvasive mechanical ventilation, home-based management, and early pulmonary rehabilitation in patients having a COPD exacerbation. These recommendations should be reconsidered as new evidence becomes available.
