The distinction of the variation of symptoms from day to day from symptoms as a result of the occurrence of clinical exacerbation remains a challenge. Resulted that patients with COPD exacerbations are predominantly older age and male gender, which is consistent with the frequency of COPD in these groups. They have increased incidence of coexistent diseases predominantly cardiovascular. Clinical manifestation of COPD exacerbation is dyspnea and mucoopurulent and purulent sputum.
