During those researches they showed that using of azithromycin and levofloxacin they have high risk and they cause cardiac arrhythmia and later lead to death which has showed during investigation among those patients who has COPD, UTI and other pulmonary disease and have treatment by those drugs and dictate those complications as using of them.
