Peak Inspiratory Flow Rates in Patients With COPD

Recent studies have reported that some COPD patients may have a suboptimal ability to generate a sufficient inspiratory effort to achieve adequate lung delivery of inhaled medications through dry powder inhalers. Sparse data is available about the inspiratory capacity of these patients in the home setting, whether clinically stable or ...

Phase N/A

Mepolizumab as Add-on Treatment IN Participants With COPD Characterized by Frequent Exacerbations and Eosinophil Level (MATINEE)

This is a multi-center, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, parallel group study designed to confirm the benefits of mepolizumab treatment on moderate or severe exacerbations in COPD participants given as an add on to their optimized maintenance COPD therapy. The maximum duration of participant participation is approximately 57 weeks, consisting of 2 ...


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 ...


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 ...


During-exercise Physiological Effects of Nasal High-flow in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Experimental design: Patients referred for pulmonary rehabilitation will be approached to participate in this study. Eligible patients who agree to participate in the study and sign informed consent will perform two constant workload exercise testing the same day with either nasal high-flow or sham nasal high-flow (separated by a 1 ...

Phase N/A

Borg Score Outcomes in Respiratory Compromised Acute Exacerbating Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Patients Receiving Treatment Via Vibrating Mesh Nebuliser Versus Jet Nebuliser in the Emergency Department

This study is a prospective, single-centre, open, randomised study to improve management of acute COPD exacerbation within the Emergency Department. Adults with severe COPD are randomised into 2 groups: vibrating mesh nebuliser or standard jet nebuliser treatment. Salbutamol (5mg) and Ipratropium (0.5mg) will be administered via Aerogen Ultra via valved ...
