COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a kind of chronic bronchitis and/or emphysema with the characteristics of airflow obstruction, which can further develop into common chronic diseases such as pulmonary heart disease and respiratory failure.

It is generally believed that factors related to the occurrence of chronic bronchitis and obstructive pulmonary emphysema may be involved in the pathogenesis of the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The risk factors that have been discovered can be roughly divided into two categories: external factors (ie environmental factors) and internal factors (ie individual susceptibility factors). External causes include smoking, dust and chemical inhalation, air pollution, respiratory infections, and people with lower socioeconomic status (may be related to indoor and outdoor air pollution, crowded rooms, poor nutrition, and other factors associated with lower socioeconomic status. Factors related). Intrinsic factors include genetic factors, increased airway responsiveness, individuals with poor lung development or growth due to various reasons during pregnancy, neonatal, infancy or childhood.

1. Stable treatment

Non-drug treatments can be used: smoking cessation, exercise or pulmonary rehabilitation training, influenza vaccination and pneumonia vaccination.

2. Rehabilitation

Such as physical therapy, high-pressure negative ion oxygen therapy, etc. are beneficial to the recovery of COPD patients' lung function.

3. Psychological adjustment

A good mood will help patients face the disease positively, increase compliance with treatment, and help establish good interpersonal relationships, which will be more conducive to the recovery of the disease.

4. Diet adjustment

Eat more fruits and vegetables, including meat, fish, eggs, milk, beans, and buckwheat. Talk less when eating, breathe hard and eat more slowly. If you are fat, you need to lose weight, and if you are thin, you need to strengthen your nutrition and eat fewer and more meals.

5. Long-term home oxygen therapy

In case of respiratory failure, long-term low-flow oxygen inhalation is recommended for more than 15 hours a day.

6. Medication

Existing drug treatment can reduce or eliminate patients' symptoms, improve activity endurance, reduce the number and severity of acute attacks to improve health. Inhalation therapy is the first choice. Educate patients to use various inhalers correctly, explain the purpose and effects of treatment to patients, and help patients persist in treatment.
