    This is an observational study of adult patients admitted to the Emergency Department at a busy teaching hospital with acute worsening (exacerbations) of their pre-existing airways disease (including asthma and COPD). All patients attending will be asked to participate and following consent all participants will be characterised carefully and their clinical progress will be followed. There will be no changes made to their treatment and no exposure to any investigational drugs. The aim is to see whether clinical outcomes vary depending upon the initial clinical characteristics of the participants.
