SESSION TITLE: Safety and Effectiveness of COPD Treatments

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

PURPOSE: Inhaled Corticosteroids (ICS), Long-acting Beta Agonists (LABA ) and Long Acting Muscarinic Antagonists (LAMA) are often used as controllers to relieve symptoms of dyspnea and coughing in advanced COPD. However, due to expense and refractory symptoms, compliance can be poor. We characterized controller (C) and rescue (R) canister consumption as well as oral corticosteroid (OCS) and antibiotic (ABX) use in patients with advanced COPD.
