ABSTRACT
The article comments on two studies on the hospital care of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients in Great Britain and on some significant findings on COPD worldwide. More than one third of patients admitted with COPD were 75 years or older. Inpatient mortality was higher in patients aged more than 85. Pulmonary rehabilitation and oxygen therapy can improve exercise performance and reduce hospital admissions.
