ABSTRACT
This article discusses whether tiotropium is more effective than salmeterol or placebo in reducing exacerbations and health resource use in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Patients who have received tiotropium had fewer COPD exacerbations and exacerbation-days per patient-year than patients who received placebo. In patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, tiotropium reduced exacerbations, resource use and improved health-related quality of life more than placebo.
