My husband (70) is just home from hospital after an infected copd exacerbation. His oxygen levels are around 88-90. He has night sweats and has lost weight . No appetite and not much energy. He's on a 20 day tapering course of steroids. His hospital experience was not a happy one and he wants to avoid going in again. Normally his cough is bad enough for him to be on antibiotics monthly. Does anyone have any tips for recognising when a bad exacerbation is on the horizon? Thanks for your help
