Hospital admissions for community-acquired, ventilator-associated and nonventilator hospital-acquired pneumonia in COPD patients in Spain (2016-2017)

CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of hospitalizations for all types of pneumonia was significantly higher in COPD patients than in the non-COPD population. In contrast, IHM was significantly lower among COPD patients with CAP than among matched non-COPD patients. Higher mortality rates in COPD patients with any pneumonia type were associated with increasing age and receiving dialysis.
