How is COPD treated?

If you smoke, stopping smoking is the most important aspect of your treatment.

Your doctor may prescribe daily medication to use. During flare-ups, additional medications may be added.

Other treatments include education on COPD and regular exercise. Exercise training has been proven to be an essential COPD treatment. Exercise cannot reverse the condition, but the benefits of exercise training can reduce the disability of COPD by improving your endurance, breathing efficiency and breathlessness.

If you have been in the hospital with COPD, you will be offered follow-up and support with a Respiratory Disease Educator to help you transition back home.
