What is the long-term impact of acute exacerbations of COPD?
Expert pulmonologists discuss the long-term impact of acute exacerbations on patients with COPD. Every time a patient has an exacerbation of COPD their lungs take a hit, and overtime they may lose lung function faster than patients who don’t have exacerbations. Getting help early on and taking medications where indicated is vitally important and can reduce the chance of repeat exacerbations and hospital visits.
