Study on COPD Corticosteroid-induced Hyperglycemia on Clinical Outcome in Patients With COPD
|Study Design:||Time Perspective: Retrospective|
|Official Title:||The Impact of Corticosteroid-induced Hyperglycemia on Clinical Outcome (Length of Stay, Disposition, APACHE Score, Need for Ventilatory Support and ICU Admission, Mortality) in Patients With COPD Exacerbation|
- The primary outcome of the study is to determine the mortality rate of COPD patients with corticosteroid-induce hyperglycemia. [ Time Frame: once all charts have been reviews ]
|Study Start Date:||February 2006|
|Study Completion Date:||December 2009|
|Primary Completion Date:||June 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
We hypothesize that COPD patients with corticosteroid-induced hyperglycemia experience higher morbidity (infections, ventilator associated pneumonia, length of stay, acute renal failure) and mortality compared to COPD patients with normal glucose levels.
To determine the impact of corticosteroid-induced hyperglycemia on clinical outcome (length of stay, disposition, APACHE score, need for ventilatory support and ICU admission, mortality) in patients with COPD exacerbation.
