PURPOSE: Acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD) often require hospitalization, may necessitate mechanical ventilation (MV) and can be fatal. Prognostic tools are needed to assess AECOPD. The aim of the study is to evaluate and compare the performance of the general scoring systems which commonly used in the general ICUs in an attempt to accurately predict outcomes in a specific group of patients (AECOPD) in a 2 year prospective observational study. This study is registered on ClinicalTrials.gov, number NCT02259439.
