Hospital Admissions in Patients with COPD

the influence of the virus A infection (H1N1) in COPD patients and its clinical and prognostic repercussion based on a group of COPD patients admitted due to a mild respiratory infection during the period of flue pandemic. Therefore, characteristics of the admitted cases are analyzed, considering subjects compliance on those indications and recommendations from published protocols.

Presence of high temperature and headache stands out as clinical data of the episode, as well as the greatest severity of the episode and the need of resources of intensive care, as criteria for the determination of the infection due to H1N1, bringing a longer hospital stay in these patients. We have not found biological data that can direct the viral condition. We have not observed any difference in relation to COPD severity depending on spirometric data either.
