Nebulised bronchodilators (oxygen or air driven where appropriate). Adding nebulised ipratropium bromide may help. Consider an aminophylline or salbutamol infusion. Corticosteroids unless contraindicated. Appropriate antibiotics should be given if infection suspected. Ventilation or bidirectional positive airway pressure (BiPAP) should be considered. 3 Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease The lungs are hyperinflated with flattening of both hemidiaphragms. ‘Barrel-shaped chest’. Increased retrosternal air space.
