Exacerbations of COPD •Responsible for winter bed pressures in the UK •Cost the NHS over £500 million annually1 •Over 1.5 million GP consultations annually in UK related to exacerbation1 1. Healthcare practitioners should be sensitive to the issue of smoking in young people. guided by susceptibilities when available) Numerator – the number in the denominator who had their inhaler technique assessed after an acute exacerbation. 19 December 2017 Endobronchial valve insertion to reduce lung volume in emphysema (NICE interventional procedures guidance 600) added. Denominator – the number of people who have face-to-face contact with a healthcare practitioner. The recommendations in this guideline represent the view of NICE, arrived at after careful consideration of the evidence available. Commonly reported symptoms are: worsening breathlessness, cough, increased sputum production and change in sputum colour. Denominator – the number of people with an acute exacerbation of COPD and persistent acidotic hypercapnic ventilatory failure that is not improving after 1 hour of optimal medical therapy. Denominator – the number of people identified as smokers in any healthcare setting. 1.1.2 Consider an antibiotic (see the recommendations on choice of antibiotic) for people with an acute exacerbation of COPD, but only after taking into account: the severity of symptoms, particularly sputum colour changes and increases in volume or thickness beyond the person's normal day-to-day variation, whether they may need to go into hospital for treatment (see the NICE guideline on COPD in over 16s), previous exacerbation and hospital admission history, and the risk of developing complications, previous sputum culture and susceptibility results. Children, young people and adults with chronic respiratory or cardiovascular conditions are given advice at routine health appointments on what to do when outdoor air quality is poor. By publicising their approach, public sector organisations can encourage organisations in other sectors to take action to reduce emissions from their vehicle fleets. A guidance on managing exacerbations is expected by Dec 2018. Numerator – the number in the denominator whose oxygen saturation levels are maintained between 88% and 92%. Increased wheeze and chest tightness. Pharmacotherapies for smoking cessation are nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), varenicline or bupropion. Evidence of local arrangements and written clinical protocols to ensure that people with COPD admitted to hospital for an acute exacerbation start a pulmonary rehabilitation programme within 4 weeks of discharge. A full course for NRT is at least 8 weeks, for varenicline it is at least 12 weeks and for bupropion it is at least 8 weeks. 5 See MHRA advice for restrictions and precautions for using fluoroquinolone antibiotics due to very rare reports of disabling and potentially long-lasting or irreversible side effects affecting musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Pathway created: May 2011 Last updated: August 2020. a) Hospital admission for acute exacerbation. A diagnosis of COPD is confirmed by post-bronchodilator spirometry. specifying emission standards for private hire and other licensed vehicles. a) Evidence that public sector organisations identify how they will reduce emissions from their vehicle fleets to address air pollution. Denominator – the number of referrals of people with stable COPD and exercise limitation due to breathlessness to pulmonary rehabilitation programmes. In some people, uncontrolled oxygen therapy may reduce the depth and frequency of breathing, leading to a rise in blood carbon dioxide levels and a fall in the blood pH (acidosis). [Adapted from, Acute acidotic hypercapnic respiratory failure results from an inability of the respiratory system to provide sufficient alveolar ventilation to maintain a normal arterial PCO2 and blood pH level. are at least 6 weeks in duration and include a minimum of twice-weekly supervised sessions, include supervised, individually tailored and prescribed, progressive exercise training including both aerobic and resistance training. It updates the NICE December 2018 guideline on diagnosing and managing COPD which had omitted recommendations on triple therapy. b) Evidence that local authorities identify in the Local Plan, local transport plan and other key strategies how they will encourage and enable active travel. The public sector fleet is substantial and includes various vehicle types, some of which are highly polluting. c) Proportion of attendances of people with stable COPD and exercise limitation due to breathlessness that result in the person completing a pulmonary rehabilitation programme. Denominator – the number of people with COPD prescribed an inhaler who have had an acute exacerbation. Local authorities identify in the Local Plan, local transport plan and other key strategies how they will address air pollution, including enabling zero- and low-emission travel and developing buildings and spaces to reduce exposure to air pollution. [Adapted from, Non-invasive ventilation is a method of providing ventilatory support that does not require an endotracheal tube. only change the antibiotic according to susceptibility results if bacteria are resistant and symptoms are not already improving (using a narrow-spectrum antibiotic wherever possible). b) Proportion of people with COPD prescribed an inhaler who have their inhaler technique assessed at their annual review. b) Evidence of local arrangements and written clinical protocols to ensure that healthcare professionals in primary, community and secondary care services are trained and competent in teaching inhaler technique. some people at risk of exacerbations may have antibiotics to keep at home as part of their exacerbation action plan (see the recommendations on choice of antibiotic).See the NICE guideline on COPD in over 16s. 11 June 2019 Bronchoscopic thermal vapour ablation for upper-lobe emphysema (NICE interventional procedures guidance 652) added to. include a defined, structured education programme. [, An oxygen saturation (measured with a pulse oximeter) that is persistently 92% or less when the person is in a chronic stable state and is at rest (is not, and has not recently, been exercising). NICE guideline [NG114] Non-invasive ventilation should be delivered in a dedicated setting by staff trained and experienced in its use because of safety concerns with using the equipment. Periods of poor air quality are associated with adverse health effects, including asthma attacks, reduced lung function, and increased mortality and admissions to hospital. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) groups have higher smoking prevalence rates than the general population, and as such, services should be accessible and commissioned to address this need. 8 Table 3 highlights the factors … It is therefore important that healthcare practitioners proactively ask people if they smoke, and offer advice on how to stop. It recommends changes to usual practice to maximise the safety of … People are asked if they smoke by their healthcare practitioner, and those who smoke are offered advice on how to stop. The consensus view on the role of ICS in COPD is in the reduction of exacerbations and not in the treatment of breathlessness. Upper airway symptoms (eg, colds and sore throats). 4 February 2016 Update of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in adults (NICE quality standard 10) added. Includes cycling and walking; travel by zero- and low-emission vehicles such as electric cars, buses, bikes and pedal cycles; and car sharing schemes or clubs. a) Proportion of people with stable COPD and exercise limitation due to breathlessness who are referred to a pulmonary rehabilitation programme. the person becomes systemically very unwell. This guideline includes recommendations on: treatment; reassessment; referral and seeking specialist advice; choice of antibiotic; Who is it for? An exacerbation of COPD causes an acute deterioration of respiratory symptoms, particularly increased breathlessness and cough, and increased sputum volume and/or a change in the colour of the sputum. a history of cardiovascular disease, hypertension or hypoxia, clinical signs such as tachycardia, oedema, cyanosis or features of cor pulmonale, Need for referral to specialist and therapy services, Need for social services and occupational therapy input, mild exacerbation: the person has an increased need for medication, which they can manage in their own normal environment, moderate exacerbation: the person has a sustained worsening of respiratory status that requires treatment with systemic corticosteroids and/or antibiotics. d) Evidence that local authorities identify in the Local Plan, local transport plan and other key strategies how they will develop buildings and spaces to reduce exposure to air pollution. Numerator – the number in the denominator with conditions or obligations to minimise and mitigate road-traffic-related air pollution. Proportion of people aged over 35 years presenting with a risk factor and one or more symptoms of COPD who have post-bronchodilator spirometry. 4 December 2018 Update of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in over 16s: diagnosis and management (NICE guideline NG115). People aged over 35 years who present with a risk factor and one or more symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have post-bronchodilator spirometry. [, Pulmonary rehabilitation programmes should be held at times that suit people with COPD and in locations that are easy for people with COPD to get to, and have good access for people with disabilities. They should do so in the context of local and national priorities for funding and developing services, and in light of their duties to have due regard to the need to eliminate unlawful discrimination, to advance equality of opportunity and to reduce health inequalities. Evidence-based smoking cessation services should target minority ethnic and socioeconomically disadvantaged communities in the local population; it is important to ensure that services are easily accessible by people from these groups and that they are encouraged to use them. Identifying their approach to air pollution in the Local Plan, local transport plan and other key strategies will provide a clear framework for joined-up local action. a) Level of awareness among children, young people and adults with chronic respiratory or cardiovascular conditions on what to do when outdoor air quality is poor. Denominator – the number of people aged over 35 years presenting with a risk factor and one or more symptoms of COPD. This can be individual or group behavioural support. Not troubled by breathlessness except on strenuous exercise, Short of breath when hurrying or walking up a slight hill, Walks slower than contemporaries on level ground because of breathlessness, or has to stop for breath when walking at own pace, Too breathless to leave the house, or breathless when dressing or undressing. Annual reviews and other appointments focused on supporting management of chronic respiratory or cardiovascular conditions. PCRS and other organisations advised that this omission would render the guideline out of date on However, the interactive flowchart does not override the individual responsibility of healthcare professionals to make decisions appropriate to the circumstances of the individual patient, in consultation with the patient and/or guardian or carer. It aims to help people with COPD to receive a diagnosis earlier so that they can benefit from treatments to reduce symptoms, improve quality of life and keep them healthy for longer. People have the right to be involved in discussions and make informed decisions about their care, as described in. Not troubled by breathlessness except on strenuous exercise. (2004) Standards for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with COPD: a summary of the ATS/ERS position paper. Buildings can affect the way air pollutants are dispersed through street design and the resulting impact on air flow. The presence all 3 symptoms was defined as type 1 exacerbation; 2 of the 3 symptoms was defined as type 2 exacerbation; and 1 of the 3 symptoms with the presence of 1 or more supporting symptoms and signs was defined as type 3 exacerbation. The recommendations in this interactive flowchart represent the view of NICE, arrived at after careful consideration of the evidence available. Nothing in this guideline should be interpreted in a way that would be inconsistent with complying with those duties. Scenario: Acute exacerbation: covers the management of people experiencing an acute exacerbation of COPD. Advice should include how to minimise exposure to outdoor air pollution and manage any related symptoms such as: The Daily Air Quality Index describes air pollution on a scale of 1 to 10 and is divided into 4 bands from low to very high. Numerator – the number in the denominator who have post-bronchodilator spirometry. This statement is linked to statement 2, because advice on how to stop may include a referral to an evidence-based smoking cessation service. Evidence of local arrangements to ensure that people who smoke are offered behavioural support with pharmacotherapy by an evidence-based smoking cessation service. These are local services providing accessible, evidence based and cost effective support to people who want to stop smoking. This NICE Pathway covers diagnosing and managing, 5 August 2020 Electrical stimulation to improve muscle strength in chronic respiratory conditions, chronic heart failure and chronic kidney disease (NICE interventional procedures guidance 677) added to, 12 September 2019 Updated table on antibiotic treatment for adults aged 18 years and over in. However, the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) 2018 guidelines recommend against its use in primary care because it is time-intensive and challenging to carry out. These include, but are not limited to, doctors, nurses, midwives, pharmacists, dentists, opticians and allied health professionals. Numerator – the number in the denominator that were given advice on what to do when outdoor air quality is poor. [Expert opinion]. Malaise. 1.2.1 When prescribing an antibiotic for an acute exacerbation of COPD, follow table 1 for adults aged 18 years and over. d) Proportion of people with COPD prescribed an inhaler who have their inhaler technique assessed after an acute exacerbation. Local authorities should ensure that they assess the impact on vulnerable groups if local charges on certain classes of vehicle in clean air zones are proposed. The key components of their approach should include enabling zero- and low-emission travel (including active travel such as cycling or walking) and developing buildings and spaces to reduce exposure to air pollution. Wedzicha JA, Calverley PMA, Albert RK, Anzueto A, Criner GJ, Hurst JR, et al. Published date: Addressing air pollution at the planning stage for major developments may reduce the need for more expensive remedial action at a later stage. 4 Co-trimoxazole should only be considered for use in acute exacerbations of COPD when there is bacteriological evidence of sensitivity and good reason to prefer this combination to a single antibiotic (BNF, October 2018). NICE Denominator – the number of attendances of people with stable COPD and exercise limitation due to breathlessness at pulmonary rehabilitation programmes. Due to recent practice … “The latest NICE guidance on COPD has managed to maintain a simplicity that makes sense to most clinicians. It is normally combined with pharmacotherapy. Some people with COPD may not be well enough to attend a pulmonary rehabilitation programme within 4 weeks of an acute exacerbation, may not have attended hospital after an acute exacerbation of COPD or may not have been admitted to hospital after their exacerbation of COPD. Restrict use of antibiotics for COPD NICE says BMJ 2018 ; 362;k3016 ... Art. 1.2.3 Review intravenous antibiotics by 48 hours and consider stepping down to oral antibiotics where possible. This can vary by healthcare setting. ; guided by susceptibilities when available), Levofloxacin (with specialist advice if co-amoxiclav or co-trimoxazole cannot be used; consider safety issues5), First-choice intravenous antibiotic (if unable to take oral antibiotics or severely unwell; Smoking cessation services provide the most effective route to stopping smoking, but many people who smoke do not use these services when they try to stop. Proportion of children, young people and adults with chronic respiratory or cardiovascular conditions attending a routine health appointment that were given advice on what to do when outdoor air quality is poor. 2. Commissioners and/or providers have a responsibility to provide the funding required to enable the recommendations to be applied when individual health professionals and their patients wish to use it, in accordance with the NHS Constitution. Commonly reported symptoms are worsening breathlessness, cough, increased sputum production and change in sputum colour. It is therefore important that practitioners are aware of and make use of the opportunities to refer people who smoke to an evidence-based smoking cessation service. DOI: 10.1002/14651858.CD009764.pub3. Austin MA, Wills KE, Blizzard L, et al. 3 People who may be at a higher risk of treatment failure include people who have had repeated courses of antibiotics, a previous or current sputum culture with resistant bacteria, or people at higher risk of developing complications. Elderly people, or people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities or cognitive impairment may experience difficulties learning and retaining the adequate inhaler technique to ensure that they get the optimal treatment dose. Assessing proposals to minimise and mitigate road-traffic-related air pollution will help to ensure they are robust and evidence based. Assessing inhaler technique should happen at the first prescription once a person has been taught the correct technique, and then be reassessed regularly (for example, at their annual review, if their treatment changes or after an acute exacerbation) throughout the duration of a person’s treatment in primary, community and secondary care services. NICE Bites No 115, February 2019, includes one topic: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In the context of primary care settings, this would involve evidence-based, opportunistic advice offered to people who smoke about the options and support available to help them stop smoking. a) Hospital admissions for acute exacerbations. An individual patient assessment should be carried out before choosing the most appropriate device for delivery of inhaled therapy. To ensure early diagnosis, spirometry should be done in primary care when a person presents with a risk factor for COPD (which is usually smoking) and one or more symptoms of COPD. Health professionals British Medical Journal 2: 257–66. It also states that group behavioural support involves scheduled meetings in which people who smoke receive information, advice and encouragement and some form of behavioural intervention (for example, cognitive behavioural therapy). 1.2.2 Give oral antibiotics first line if the person can take oral medicines, and the severity of their exacerbation does not require intravenous antibiotics. People with COPD need to use their inhaler correctly to receive the optimal treatment dose. cannot take oral medicines (to explore locally available options for giving intravenous antibiotics at home or in the community, rather than in hospital, where appropriate). More than 3 million people died of COPD in 2012 accounting for 6% of all deaths globally. People who smoke are offered behavioural support with pharmacotherapy by an evidence-based smoking cessation service. Denominator – the number of people with stable COPD and a persistent resting stable oxygen saturation level of 92% or less. The recommendations in this interactive flowchart represent the view of NICE, arrived at after careful consideration of the evidence available. Denominator – the number of people who seek support to stop smoking and who agree to take pharmacotherapy. 4. a) Frequency of non-invasive ventilation due to oxygen toxicity. Increased dyspnoea. a) Evidence of local arrangements and written clinical protocols to ensure that people with COPD who are prescribed an inhaler have their technique assessed at the start of treatment and then regularly during their treatment. There are 1.3 million people in the UK with a diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the condition is responsible for considerable morbidity and mortality.1 COPD is also a common cause of hospital admission. A placeholder statement indicates the need for evidence-based guidance to be developed in this area. Evidence of local arrangements and written clinical protocols to ensure that people receiving emergency oxygen for an acute exacerbation of COPD have their oxygen saturation levels maintained between 88% and 92%. 6 Review intravenous antibiotics by 48 hours and consider stepping down to oral antibiotics where possible. People who smoke are offered a referral to an evidence-based smoking cessation service. People who smoke who have set a quit date with an evidence-based smoking cessation service are assessed for carbon monoxide levels 4 weeks after the quit date. During an exacerbation, people with COPD may experience a worsening of gas exchange in the lungs, which can lead to low blood oxygen levels. Public sector organisations can extend their impact by commissioning transport or fleet services from organisations that reduce emissions from their vehicle fleets to address air pollution. All rights reserved. previous antibiotic use, which may have led to resistant bacteria.Send a sputum sample for culture and susceptibility testing if symptoms have not improved following antibiotic treatment and this has not been done already. If necessary, actions to mitigate the impact of charges on specific groups should be identified. NICE guidance and other sources used to create this interactive flowchart. 3. Commissioners and providers have a responsibility to promote an environmentally sustainable health and care system and should. Pharmacotherapy interventions act as an aid to help people to stop smoking, and it is important that people who seek support to stop smoking receive the full course of their chosen pharmacotherapy to increase the chances of success. COPD: overview of updated NICE guidance The guidance addresses many current clinically relevant issues in the diagnosis and management 
o of patients with COPD but acknowledges that evidence is still lacking or unclear in some areas, leading to recommendations for research Stoller JK. Denominator – the number of people with COPD prescribed an inhaler for more than 12 months. Numerator – the number of people in the denominator who are assessed for carbon monoxide levels 4 weeks after the quit date. It is usually delivered through a mask that covers the nose or a mask covering the nose and the mouth. Denominator – the number of children, young people and adults with chronic respiratory or cardiovascular conditions attending a routine health appointment.

Local commissioners and providers of healthcare have a responsibility to enable the guideline to be applied when individual professionals and people using services wish to use it. Everything NICE has said on diagnosing and managing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in people aged 16 and over in an interactive flowchart. Walks slower than contemporaries on level ground because of breathlessness, or has to stop for breath when walking at own pace. Proportion of people who smoke who are referred to an evidence-based smoking cessation service. Numerator – the number in the denominator who have non-invasive ventilation. Proportion of people with an exacerbation of COPD and persistent acidotic hypercapnic ventilatory failure that is not improving after 1 hour of optimal medical treatment who have non-invasive ventilation. Numerator – the number in the denominator who had their inhaler technique assessed after a change in treatment. NICE guidance recommends that young people aged 12–17 who smoke should be offered information, advice and support on how to stop smoking and be encouraged to use local evidence-based smoking cessation services. They should do so in light of their duties to have due regard to the need to eliminate unlawful discrimination, to advance equality of opportunity and to reduce health inequalities. b) Evidence of local arrangements and written clinical protocols to ensure that healthcare professionals in primary care using post-bronchodilator spirometry are trained and competent in its use.
