Acute episode of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease occurs in almost all patients, during which cough, expectoration and dyspnea increase

Acute episode of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease occurs in almost all patients, during which cough, expectoration and dyspnea increase. When the underlying disease is not severe and the acute episode not life-threatening, the term "exacerbation" is appropriate, and the patients can be managed at home. When the underlying disease is advanced and the acute episode possibly life-threatening, the terms of "acute respiratory failure" or "decompensation" can be used. These patients are most often admitted to the hospital, and at times to the intensive care unit.

Jean Philippe Derenne. Inspiratory muscle physiology, with particular regard to the diaphragm. Over the last 10 years we have witnessed an explosion of information of how respiratory muscles function in health and disease, new techniques for their evaluation have been created, the concept of fatigue, weakness, and failure was developed, and their rest or training was attemp­ ted. The implication of respiratory muscles malfunction in respi­ ratory medicine has reached a prominent place.

While emphysema and chronic bronchitis are primarily lung di­ seases . Their malfunction can lead to severe dyspnea and to failure of the ventilatory pump.

While emphysema and chronic bronchitis are primarily lung di­ seases, one of their major consequences is to deeply affect the function of the respiratory muscles. Lung hyperinflation shortens the inspiratory muscles due to increased airways resistance, more of their effort is demanded and changes in nutritional status wea­ ken them further.
