31 COPD Flash Inhalation treatment to reach therapy objectives Scenario: a 56 year old patient with COPD experiences coughing and dyspnea when he goes up the stairs or when carrying the shopping. He frequently uses bronchodilators as relievers as much as ten times a day and cough syrup. He frequently has a worsening of coughing with phlegm and dyspnea. Due to his ill health he often has to take time off work and risks losing his job for this reason. The scene shows the man out of puff and with a grey complexion climbing the stairs and when he gets to the top of the stairs he incorrectly uses his bronchodilator and resigns himself to the fact that he will never get better. Worried that his medication is finished he makes an appointment with his family doctor to have a repeat prescription. Scene 2: the patient enters the doctors surgery and complains to his doctor that his medication isnt working. If you were the doctor what would you do? a. repeat the usual prescription b. ask if patient is exposed to risk factors c. admit the patient to hospital Educational message : the most important thing is to further investigate to find out if the patient is smoking or exposed to other risk factors. The elimination of risk factors is the key to improving patient health Scene 3: Patient stopped smoking 5 years before. If you were the doctor what would you do? a.Repeat the usual prescription b.Establish the severity of the disease c.Admit the patient to the hospital Educational message: in a COPD patient the treatment prescribed must be based on the severity of the disease. Show the classification of COPD based on spirometry and ABG

32 COPD Flash Inhalation treatment to reach therapy objectives Scene 4: doctor performs and/or requests a spirometry and a ABG analisys to be compared with previous results and concludes that there is no variation. If you were the doctor what would you do? a. Check compliance and inhalation technique b. Repeat the usual prescription c. Admit the patient to hospital Educational message: the key to obtaining good results with pharmacologic therapy in patients with COPD is to take therapy regularly over a long period of time. In fact the most important trials have shown an improvement of symptoms and exercise tolerance, reduction of exacerbation, improved quality of life over a period of several years of treatment. Constant monitoring of inhalation technique is an essential part of pharmacotherapy Scene 5: What should you do if your patient is unable to use the prescribed treatment correctly? a. Prescribe only medication which is to be taken orally b Prescribe a more appropriate device based mainly on coordination and maximum inhalation flow c. Prescribe only a nebulizer Educational message: doctors have to choose the right device to suit each individual patient. (Show the flow- chart for making the right choice) Scene 6: If the patient continues to complain about his symptoms a.Check for comorbidities b.Prescribe oral corticosteroids c.Admit patient to hospital Educational message: patients who are elderly and smokers or ex smokers often suffer from comorbidities such as chronic cardiac failure, hypertension, diabetes, osteoporosys, metabolic syndrome etc that complicate their condition Scene 7: And what is the final recommendation? a. Maintain a regular diet and exercise routine b. Prescribe a rehabilitation program c. Give the patient a written plan and arrange regular follow-up appointments d. All Show the doctor that explain to the patient the flow chart to reach therapy objectives
