[Role of antibiotherapy in acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease].
Rev Med Suisse. 2007 Apr 11; 3(106):939-42.RM

Abstract

Two thirds of the exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are caused by infections of the respiratory tract. The causative microorganisms differ according to the degree of COPD severity, previous antibiotic therapy and prior bacterial infections. Antibiotics and intensification of bronchodilator therapy are the cornerstones of the management of moderate and severe exacerbations of COPD. Prompt therapy of COPD exacerbations has been shown to reduce the likelihood of hospitalisation and improve the quality of life. In this article, we have reviewed current recommendations regarding the use of antibiotics in the treatment of COPD exacerbations.
