In brief: Inhalers
First, smokers should quit smoking.
A number of inhalers are used. There are controlling medications to be taken daily and rescue inhalers to be taken only when needed. For more details, check with your doctor.

In brief: Treatment...
COPD is treated with bronchodilator as well as steroid inhalers to relieve bronchospasm and inflammation.
If your oxygen level is low enough, oxygen is prescribed. Smoking cessation is absolutely necessary to decrease inflammation and slow disease progression.

In addition to medication and smoking cessation, pulmonary rehabilitation may also improve the patient's quality of life
