COPD exacerbation is a major cause of morbidity and mortality, associated with impairment of quality of life, lung function decline and increased consumption of health care resources. Clinic features are studied of acute exacerbation of COPD with GOLD stage III and IV. The assessment of patients reporting symptoms and interpretation by the doctor remains important because diagnosis of COPD exacerbation is clinical diagnosis. 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. Resulted predominantly type I exacerbation by Antonisen. Based on the degree of dyspnea MRC and CAT score indicated that the level of impairment of patients health is high
