ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 60-year-old patient diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The patient was given long-acting bronchodilators tiotropium to prevent exacerbations. The study revealed a 14% reduction in risk for a moderate exacerbation which is associated with tiotropium, compared with salmeterol. It adds that the tiotropium group had 23% risk reduction in the use of glucocorticoids compared with the salmeterol.
