Understanding Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, commonly known as COPD, is a chronic lung disease that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by long-term breathing difficulties, including chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and refractory asthma. COPD typically develops as a result of long-term exposure to harmful lung irritants, most commonly cigarette smoke.
At West Coast Pulmonary & Sleep Disorders, we understand the challenges faced by individuals living with COPD. Our team of specialists is dedicated to helping patients manage their symptoms, improve their quality of life, and slow down the progression of the disease.
Treatment Options for COPD
Our medical facility offers a wide range of COPD treatment options tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient. Our team of experts utilizes the latest advancements in medical technology, combined with evidence-based practices, to deliver the highest standard of care.
Medications play a crucial role in managing COPD symptoms and preventing exacerbations. Our specialists may prescribe bronchodilators, inhaled corticosteroids, or combination inhalers to improve lung function, relieve shortness of breath, and reduce inflammation in the airways.
2. Pulmonary Rehabilitation
Pulmonary rehabilitation is a comprehensive program designed to improve the overall quality of life for individuals with COPD. Our pulmonary rehabilitation program includes exercise training, nutritional counseling, and educational support to enhance physical and emotional well-being.
3. Oxygen Therapy
In cases where oxygen levels are low, oxygen therapy may be prescribed to improve breathing and relieve symptoms. Our team ensures proper assessment and prescription of oxygen therapy, along with necessary equipment and ongoing monitoring.
4. Smoking Cessation
Quitting smoking is an essential step in managing COPD and preventing further damage to the lungs. We provide smoking cessation programs to help patients overcome nicotine addiction and adopt a healthier lifestyle.
5. Surgical Interventions
In severe cases of COPD, surgical interventions may be considered. Lung volume reduction surgery and lung transplantation can improve lung function and enhance the overall quality of life for eligible patients. Our specialists collaborate with renowned surgeons to provide comprehensive surgical options when necessary.
