Corticosteroides for COPD

PulmCCM
PulmCCM - October 17, 2018
..."Most patients with severe COPD exacerbations should be treated with seven days or fewer of systemic corticosteroids. There is no reason to believe that longer steroid courses are helpful in patients with mild or moderate COPD either, although evidence is lacking for that conclusion. Some patients are exceptions and may require longer steroid courses to regain symptom control and functional status."
