AIM 1/AIM 2: AECOPD Admitted Patients
AIM 1:All patients admitted to the hospital (either to Pulmonary or General Medicine) will be recruited to enroll in this observational study. No specific intervention is planned for this group.
AIM 2: All patients admitted to the pulmonary ward for an AECOPD, including those who have completed Aim 1, will be offered participation into this arm of the study. Pulmonary rehabilitation will be conducted through the Breathe Easy Program at the Centre for Lung Health.
Other: AIM 2: Pulmonary Rehabilitation
Patients exercise 2 hours per session which includes aerobic exercise (20-40 minutes per session) as well as strength training. All exercise is carefully tracked by trained Respiratory or Physical Therapists. Patients also receive education from a multi-disciplinary team aimed at patient self-management.
- Inflammatory markers [ Time Frame: 14 days ]CRP: C-reactive protein is a non-specific serum marker of inflammation (range <8 is normal)
- Length of Stay (LOS) [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]Length of stay in the hospital to the point where the patient is stable from the COPD perspective. Patients with LTC needs may stay beyond the designated hospitalization due to care needs.
- Inflammatory marker (IL-6) [ Time Frame: 14 days ]IL-6: is an interleukin that acts as both a pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine.
- Inflammatory marker (TNF-alpha) [ Time Frame: 14 days ]TNF-alpha
- Inflammatory Marker (MMP-2) [ Time Frame: 14 days ]MMP-2
- Quality of Life (QoL) [ Time Frame: 14 days ]CAT MMRC SGHRQ
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
