COPD Treatment
Treating Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) may be treated to reduce COPD Symptoms and Exacerbations. COPD Treatment Medications include Bronchodilators and Corticosteroids, although Antibiotics may also be used to treat antibacterial infections that can cause COPD Exacerbations. A tytpical COPD Treatment Regimen will include treatment with Multiple Drugs.


Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

This nhn COPD Guide includes information about Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease that is written primarily to help COPD Patients better understand their condition and the range of COPD treatment options that are currently available:

  • What is COPD - COPD Definition
  • COPD Causes
  • COPD Symptoms - Signs of COPD
  • COPD Pathophysiology
  • COPD Stages - The 4 Stages of COPD
  • COPD Life Expectancy
  • COPD Diagnosis
  • COPD Treatment
  • Curing COPD - COPD Cures

  • 8. COPD Treatment

    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Can Be Treated to prevent further progression of the disease, and improve the COPD patients Quality of Life by decreasing the severity and frequency of COPD Symptoms and decreasing the occurrence of COPD Exacerbations.

    By following the optimum COPD Treatment Regimen, the COPD patient can also expect to reduce the accelerated erosion of Life Expectancy associated with worsening COPD.

  • COPD Treatment Step 1 - Cessation
  • 8.2. COPD Treatment Step 2 - Medication
  • 8.3. COPD Treatment Step 3 - COPD Management

  • 8.1. COPD Treatment Step 1 - Cessation

    The most critical step in any COPD treatment regimen is to remove the source of the lung irritants that cause COPD.

    For most people this means Smoking Cessation, including cessation of second-hand smoking. Clinical studies have shown that for smokers who suffer from COPD, complete smoking cessation prevents further loss of Lung Function above that expected due to other factors such as normal aging.

    It is also important to avoid any exposure to other lung irritants such as dusts, irritant gases, or any form of air pollution. Clinical studies suggest that any COPD patient will experience positive benefits from smoking cessation "or avoidance of any other lung irritants, regardless of the COPD Stage that they have reached.


    8.2. COPD Treatment Step 2 - Medication

    Your doctor will be able to prescribe a combination of medications in order to relieve your COPD Symptoms.

    A typical COPD Treatment regimen will include taking multiple COPD medications, with each drug being prescribed to provide relief from a specific COPD symptom. Your doctor should also make you fully aware of the various side-effects and risks that each of these pharmaceuticals may be associated with.

    Current COPD Treatment Medications include Bronchodilators and Corticosteroids. Additionally, Antibiotics are often used to treat any bacterial infections that lead to COPD Exacerbations.


    8.2.1. Bronchodilators in COPD Treatment

    Bronchodilators are a type of COPD medication that make breathing easier by relaxing the constricting muscles in the walls of the bronchi and bronchioles, thereby allowing these respiratory passages to become less narrow.

    A range of Bronchodilators are available to act as rescue inhalers, to treat patients with Daily COPD Symptoms or treat patients with Intermittent COPD symptoms.

    Treatment of Daily COPD Symptoms

    For patients with daily COPD symptoms, the American Thoracic Society"1} recommends that Anticholinergic Bronchodilators be used as the primary maintenance treatment for COPD.
    Anticholinergic Bronchodilators work by blocking the action of Acetylcholine, which is the body's natural chemical messenger that signals the muscles in the bronchi and bronchioles to contract.

    Anticholinergic Bronchodilators are currently the most commonly prescribed medications for COPD treatment, with Ipratroprium Bromide being the most widely used specific drug. Usually administered from a metered dose aerosol inhaler, this drug is sold under the brand name Atrovent, or (when combined with Albuterol Sulphate) as Combivent.
    Common Side-Effects of Ipratroprium Bromide are reported to include coughing and nervousness.

    Beta2-Agonists are a different class of Bronchodilators that dilate the bronchi and bronchioles by stimulating receptors in the sympathetic nervous system.
    Long-Acting Beta2-Agonists can provide up to 12 hours relief from COPD symptoms and are taken twice daily.
    The most common side-effects of Long-Acting Beta2-Agonists are reported to include headache, upper respiratory tract infection, nasopharyngitis, and cough.

    Theophylline is another bronchodilator prescribed to be taken one or twice per day, but this drug is taken orally.
    Theophylline works systemically to open up the airways and also increases muscle endurance decreasing fatigue. This drug is generally prescribed in the treatment of non-compliant COPD patients who may not be able to use aerosol bronchodilators effectively.
    Common side-effects of Theophylline include nausea, vomiting, headache and insomnia.

    Albuterol is a Short-Acting Beta2-Agonist that is widely prescribed in the treatment of patients with daily COPD symptoms for use as a fast-acting rescue inhaler.

    "1, American Thoracic Society. Standards for the diagnosis and care of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Am J Respir Crit Care Med. 1995;152:S77-S120.

    Treatment of Intermittent COPD Symptoms

    For patients with intermittent COPD symptoms, the American Thoracic Society recommends treatment using Short-Acting Beta2-Agonists, with Albuterol metered aerosol inhaler being most commonly prescribed.
    The most common reported side-effects of Albuterol include tremors, nausea, tachycardia, palpitations, and nervousness.

    In some cases, Short-Acting Beta2-Agonists may also be combined with Anticholinergic Bronchodilators to provide increased efficacy without increasing side-effects.

    8.2.2. Corticosteroids in COPD Treatment

    Corticosteroids are systemic drugs that are widely applied in the treatment of Asthma, but they are not routinely indicated for the treatment of COPD.

    COPD Treatment Guidelines suggest that oral or inhaled Corticosteroids should only be prescribed to patients whose symptoms cannot be controlled using bronchodilators.
    Following a clinical trial to determine efficacy, treatment with Corticosteroids should only be continued if significant benefit is measured, and then the dose should be optimized to the minimum possible.
    The most common side effects of inhaled corticosteroids include upper respiratory tract infection, headaches and pharyngitis.

    8.2.3. Antibiotics in COPD Treatment

    Antibiotics are used in COPD treatment to eradicate bacterial infections. They are often prescribed in the treatment of COPD Exacerbations, which are commonly caused by bacterial infection in the lungs.
    Antibiotics are also used in COPD treatment to attend to bacterial infections throughout the respiratory tract including Sinusitis, Bronchitis and Pneumonia.


    8.3. COPD Treatment Step 3 - COPD Management

    According to Johns Hopkins Medicine treatment of Chronic Bronchitis may also include:

  • Moderate Aerobic Activity - to improve capacity for exertion and prevent progression of COPD
  • Chest Infection Prevention Measures - like relevant vaccinations and good hygiene habits
  • Avoiding Dry Air - using a humidifier to create moist air will help thin mucus secretions
  • Supplemental Oxygen - may prolong life in patients with reduced blood Oxygen levels
  • Special Exercises - may help improve breathing efficiency and also clear mucus from the lungs
