There is no quick fix for chronic lung conditions, and they tend to worsen over time. However, COPD is treatable. With the right care and treatment, a positive outlook, and emotional support, symptom control is possible.
A major aim of treatment is to maintain a patient’s mobility and independence. Pulmonary rehabilitation and simple things like breathing exercises can make a huge difference if properly supervised. Avoiding polluted air is important, and you definitely should not smoke if you have COPD.
Treatment includes special inhalers called bronchodilators, oral steroids, antibiotics for infections, pulmonary rehabilitation, and breathing exercises.
