Surgical Interventions and Therapies in COPD

The circumstances of the obstructive pulmonary disease can be prevented by decreasing contact with risk factors. It includes decreasing rates of smoking and improving indoor and outdoor air quality. Regardless of frequent medical treatments, surgery may be measured for the symptomatic patient with medically-optimized, end-stage COPD. Effective management of COPD is based on the ability to slow disease progression, prevent infection, and treat reversible symptoms. If the scope of disease is not completely unalterable (end stage), its progression can be decelerated through smoking reduction and decrease exposure to environmental pollutants or occupational irritants, and long-term therapy with supplemental oxygen. Several agents are available for the management of reversible bronchospasm associated with COPD. People having advanced chronic pulmonary conditions undergo several treatments like bronchoscopy. The goal of surgical interventions and therapy of chronic lung disease is to prolong life by preventing secondary complications, to relieve dyspnea, and to enhance the quality of life by improving functional status.
