PURPOSE: Many epidemiologic studies have documented variable relationships between air pollution (particulate matter (PM) and NO2) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbation and mortality. The aim of our study is to determine the effect of PM2.5/NO2 on acute exacerbation of COPD (AECOPD) and provide clinical evidence for preventing AECOPD in different ambient air quality.
