A Study to Test the Combination of Tiotropium and Olodaterol Using the Respimat Inhaler in People With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Who Have Different Abilities to Inhale.

To demonstrate the efficacy of inhaled tiotropium + olodaterol via Respimat on lung function in patients with moderate to severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) with optimal and sub-optimal Peak Inspiratory Flow Rate (PIFR). Disease severity (moderate to severe) is based on the Global Initiative for Chronic Lung Disease (GOLD) ...


Differential Mechanisms of Dyspnea Relief in Advanced COPD: Opiates vs. Bronchodilators

Dyspnea arises during exercise in COPD patients when there is a mismatch between the ventilatory demand (largely dictated by chemical stimuli) and the capacity to respond to that demand (dictated by mechanical/muscular factors). Our preliminary studies have indicated that treatment with opioids in COPD patients can improve activity related dyspnea ...


A Study on Whether Patients Prefer the Spiriva Respimat or the Spiriva Handihaler for Treating Their Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

The objective of this study is to investigate the patient acceptability/preference of Respimat compared with Handihaler in patients with moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to demonstrate the superiority of Respimat.


Implications of Appropriate Use of Inhalers in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic systemic inflammatory disease associated with substantial morbidity and mortality and is now the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States. The majority of COPD-related symptoms are managed using inhaled therapy. Inhalation is a safe, efficacious and quick way for drug ...


Morphine or Fentanyl for Refractory Dyspnea in COPD

Rationale: The most important complaint in severe COPD is dyspnea which is associated with a diminished exercise tolerance, reduced quality of life and can lead to anxiety and depression. If dyspnea continues to exist despite optimal therapy it is called refractory dyspnea. There is evidence that morphine is effective and ...


Dose of Corticosteroids in COPD

The goal of the study is to determine whether a high-dose corticosteroid regimen in patients admitted to the hospital with COPD exacerbations is associated with better clinical outcomes and at acceptable risk of adverse effects compared to a low-dose corticosteroid regimen. Our hypothesis is that high-dose corticosteroids is associated with ...


Legend: TRELEGY Real World Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Effectiveness Study

The primary purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of TRELEGY ELLIPTA single inhaler triple therapy (SITT) (fluticasone furoate/umeclidinium bromide/vilanterol [FF/UMEC/VI]) relative to non-ELLIPTA multiple inhaler triple therapies (MITT) of inhaled corticosteroids/long-acting beta2-adrenergic receptor agonists/muscarinic receptor antagonists (ICS/LABA/LAMA) within a routine clinical practice setting. This is a non-randomized, ...


Inhaled Long-acting Bronchodilators With or Without Inhaled Glucocorticosteroids for Preventing Hospitalizations and Death in Elderly Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease occurs mainly in the elderly and has important comorbidities, particularly cardiovascular, which increase its severity. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease affects 5% of people globally, increasing to 10% in the elderly. According to data from the World Health Organisation (WHO), there were 384 million cases of COPD ...


Effects of HFOT on Exercise Performance in Patients With COPD. A Randomized Controlled Trial.

This will be a randomized, cross-over trial evaluating the efficacy of nasal HFOT vs. LFOT on cycling endurance in patients with COPD. Each patient will perform two constant load cycling exercise tests to exhaustion using HFOT and LFOT on two consecutive days, respectively, according to randomization. The load of the ...


Effect of Noninvasive Ventilation on Physical Activity and Inflammation in COPD Patients

Parallel, randomized and controlled clinical trial to evaluate the effect of 12 months of noninvasive mechanical ventilation versus conventional treatment in hypercapnic patients with stable COPD. Main objective: To evaluate the effect of 12 months of noninvasive ventilation on c-reactive protein concentration and daily physical activity in hypercapnic patients with ...
