Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a long-term condition that can’t be completely cured, but early treatment can make a difference. Lifestyle changes, medication, pulmonary rehabilitation, oxygen, and surgery are all treatment options that can help. The most successful treatment usually involves a combination of medical interventions and behavioral changes. Learning about treatment options can help you feel more in control as you work with your doctor to effectively manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
