AbstractChronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common condition in Hong Kong and many affected patients require frequent admissions to hospital. The indications for hospitalisation for Chinese COPD patients have not been described for the Hong Kong setting. We have therefore compiled these criteria which artificially divide the admission process into acute, sub- acute, and elective. Patients should be immediately hospitalised if there is an exacerbation complicated by severe dyspnoea or respiratory failure. Sub- acute admission is indicated for stabilisation of severe COPD complications and elective admission is indicated for long term treatment rationalisation.
