Keywords Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; Exacerbation; Eosinophil; Readmission; Systemic steroid; Length of hospital stay
Core Tip This is the first study in Taiwan that comprehensively evaluates the role of eosinophilia in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Eosinophilic COPD exacerbation is associated with a high risk of readmissions and a short length of hospital stay. It has the characteristics of non-infectious inflammation and is a predictor of steroid therapy. A routine survey of the peripheral blood eosinophil count is warranted for acute COPD exacerbations.
