Some COPD treatment options

COPD is a serious and progressive disease, but medication—including bronchodilators—may help manage its symptoms.

Bronchodilators help open the airways to make it easier to breathe.

  • Long-acting maintenance medicines are taken every day to control COPD but are not intended to treat sudden symptoms
  • Short-acting rescue medicines are taken as needed for sudden symptoms

Even if you are prescribed a maintenance medicine, you should always have a rescue inhaler with you to treat sudden symptoms. If you do not have a rescue inhaler, call your doctor to have one prescribed for you.

A maintenance medicine may help control your COPD symptoms long term. Talk to your doctor about your treatment plan

What are some COPD devices available for treatment?

Most COPD treatments are administered using inhalation devices, such as nebulizer systems or handheld inhalers.

Nebulizers

Nebulizers

A nebulizer is a device that turns the liquid medicine into a mist, which is then inhaled through a mouthpiece or a mask. After each use, the nebulizer should be cleaned according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Inhalers

Inhalers

Inhaled COPD medications come in a variety of inhaler devices, including soft-mist inhalers, metered-dose inhalers, and dry-powder inhalers. Each type of inhaler delivers medicine in slightly different ways. Some of these devices require you to coordinate your breath with the activation of the device.
