Pulmonary diseases-treatment and therapies

There's currently no cure for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), yet treatment can help moderate the movement of the condition and control the side effects. Medicines include: quit smoking, inhalers and pharmaceuticals – to help make breathing easier, pulmonary rehabilitation – a specific program of exercise and education surgery or a lung transplant – although this is only an option for a very small number of people. Oxygen therapy can improve quality of life and is the only COPD therapy proven to extend life. Surgery is an option for some people with some forms of severe emphysema who aren't helped sufficiently by medications alone. Surgical options include: Lung volume reduction surgery, Lung transplant and Bullectomy.
