Healthcare professionals work hard to ensure the best possible patient Quality of Life, to slow down deterioration of patient’s airways systems.
However, COPD is a condition which is unpredictable, and its complexities challenge even skilled healthcare professionals.
Trial medication is applied broadly without factual evidence of an inflammatory condition. Factual evidence of the effectiveness of prescribed medication is scarce.
Despite efforts in diagnosis and monitoring, frequent exacerbations still happen ‘out of the blue’, with no pre-warning, and a third of the COPD patients who are admitted to hospital, are readmitted within 30 days with a new, acute exacerbation.
