OBJECTIVE: We investigated the effects of ventilator mask atomization inhalation of ipratropium bromide and budesonide suspension liquid in the treatment of acute exacerbation COPD (AECOPD) on circulating levels of inflammatory factors and prognosis.

PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 86 cases of patients on ventilator support were randomly divided into control group and observation group with 43 cases each. The control group was administered routine treatment including basic disease treatment, anti-infection, maintenance of a stable internal environment, nutritional support, oxygen inhalation and so on. The control group was administered saline through a ventilator mask. The observation group was treated with atomized inhalation of ipratropium bromide and budesonide suspension and oxygen flow 3-5 L/min, 15-20 min/time and twice a day for 1 week. The treatment effects were compared.

RESULTS: Serum TNF-α, IL-6, and CRP levels were decreased in both groups after treatment, but levels in the observation group were significantly lower than those of the control group; differences were statistically significant (p < 0.05). Forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume (FEV1), FEV1/FVC and maximal expiratory flow rate in the observation group were significantly higher than those in the control group after treatment (p < 0.05). After treatment, the PaO2, SpO2 and respiratory failure index (RFI) of the observation group were significantly higher than those of the control group. The PaCO2 levels of the observation group were lower than those of the control group. The differences were statistically significant (p < 0.05). The clinical efficacy of the observation group was better than that of the control group; the ventilation time and total treatment time was significantly shorter and the differences were statistically significant (p < 0.05).

CONCLUSIONS: The ventilator mask atomizing inhalation of ipratropium bromide and budesonide suspension liquid in the treatment of AECOPD can significantly improve circulating inflammatory reaction, improve lung function and blood gas levels, increase the treatment efficiency, and shorten the treatment time.
