Abstract

Acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are common and associated with significant morbidity and mortality. As acute exacerbations of COPD are difficult to define and their pathogenesis is poorly understood, it is not surprising that their management varies considerably. In this review the current knowledge of the pathophysiology of acute exacerbations of COPD is examined from the perspective of cellular events, blood gases and lung function. Issues involved with management of this condition are also considered, including drug treatment and mechanical ventilation. Finally, five areas for future research are discussed.
