SESSION TITLE: Airways 5

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: In patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), frequent utilization of emergency department (ED) services may allow identification of factors associated with suboptimal care. Furthermore, patients with COPD treated in the ED may be more likely to be hospitalized and thereby increase their cost of care. Identification of the characteristics of patients that utilize the ED frequently may lead to improved care strategy. Our goal was to identify patients with COPD treated in an ambulatory setting who utilize the ED more than two times in a 12 month period and determine the patient factors that lead to frequent ED visits.
