RAD V COPD: The inhalers mentioned are used mainly for COPD. But can assist with difficult RAD(Asthma). COPD is unusual in an non smoker under 50. Make sure they evaluate you for alpha1 antitrypsin deficiency /pulmonary hypertension/pulmonary fibrosis/sarcoidosis . You need a full exam labs CT of chest . PFTS with DLCO AND POTENTIALLY lung bronchoscopy with biopsy.
