In brief: Treatment copd spasm

It all depends on what inhaled meds you are using.
If you are using 12 hour inhalers which contain steroids and long term bronchodilaters and spirive by inhalation once a day, then you can use atrovent (ipratropium) and albuterol(duoneb) every 4 to 6 hours only as a rescue for the spasms if needed.
