COPD exacerbation in mid March 2011

My blood oxygen levels decreased to 90 and I was coughing more than normal. Had chest sounded by GP and chest x-ray but he did not think I had aspriration pneumonia. Was put on antibiotics for seven days.
PROGNOSIS: COPD exacerbation
HIGH RISK: I am a very high risk to get aspiration pneumonia.
