Abstract: A poster presentation regarding chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbations: a hospital-based study. Introduction: The role of long-acting muscarinic antagonists (LAMAs) in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) hospitalisation reduction has been established. The lack of availability of LAMAs on closed formularies hinders their use. Poor accessibility to LAMAs may have negative implications on healthcare expenditure and patients’ quality-of-life. Aims: To identify the hospitalisations due to COPD exacerbation and to estimate the resulting costs.
