Diagnosis and Treatment of COPD

The major test for diagnosing COPD is a lung function test is known as spirometer which involves the use of a machine called a spirometer that measures how much air you are able to move by taking a deep breathe in and out, and how rapidly you are able to do so. Arterial blood gas analysis is second important test in diagnosing COPD. This test measures how much oxygen and carbon dioxide are present in the blood. A high percentage of carbon dioxide in the blood can be an indication of badly functioning lungs.

The principal methods of treatment are pharmacotherapy and smoking cessation, while pulmonary rehabilitation, long-term oxygen therapy, and surgery may be considered in selected patients. Steroids, inhalers and antibiotics may be prescribed to treat various indications of COPD. Smoking stoppage is the most effective interference in stopping the progression of COPD, as well as increasing survival rate of persons suffering with COPD. Hence, smoking stoppage should be the main priority in the treatment of COPD
