Some of these risk factors are likely to be highly correlated to each other, such as home oxygen use, hypercapnia and chronic steroid use likely reflect increasing severity of underlying COPD.

One would suspect that there would be additive benefits when both treatments are used over either treatment alone Wood-Baker et al ; Ram et al Curr Opin Pulm Med.

In these assessments, in line with most antibiotic comparison trials, there was no statistically significant difference in the two arms in the clinical outcome, with clinical success rates of 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 al ; Ram et al This definition though more inclusive, is not specific with regards to the nature and duration of symptoms.

Though improved outcomes in exacerbations with antibiotic choice based on such risk stratification has not yet anthoniseen demonstrated in prospective controlled trials, this approach takes into account concerns of disease heterogeneity, antibiotic resistance and judicious antibiotic use in exacerbations.
