  As for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), it was mentioned in the previous article that it is an irreversible chronic disease. If you don't get professional treatment and don't pay attention to yourself at ordinary times, the disease will only become more serious, such as pulmonary heart disease.


  But although irreversible, COPD is controllable.



  The average life span of COPD varies from person to person, ranging from 20 to 50 years. It mainly depends on the control of the patient's condition at ordinary times.


  As early as 2010, Mr. Yuan Longping, the father of rice, was diagnosed with COPD. Ten years later, the 91 year old Mr. Yuan is still very energetic. This has a lot to do with Yuan Longping's high self-discipline, which not only made him outstanding achievements in the professional field, but also reflected in the treatment of COPD.




  The number of acute exacerbations per year in patients with COPD is considered to be the main reason affecting life span.


  The so-called acute exacerbation refers to: cough, expectoration, dyspnea, and the symptoms of these respiratory tracts are aggravated (such as colds, cold weather, direct stimulation by cold air, pneumonia caused by bacterial infection, and symptoms caused by excessive fatigue are aggravated). If there is no natural relief of medication, then this time will not count. If you use antibiotics or hormones or are hospitalized, it is even an acute exacerbation.


  Each time the acute exacerbation occurs, the lung is equivalent to a fire. Through active treatment, although the fire can be extinguished, the lung will also be burned, and can not completely recover to the state before the onset.




  In fact, if we have enough self-discipline, we can completely control the course of COPD within a reasonable range.


  1、Reject tobacco


  The longer you smoke, the more you smoke, and the more serious your illness is, whether it is first-hand or second-hand smoke.




  2、Pay attention to pulmonary function examination


  Take a pulmonary function test every year to compare it with the pulmonary function parameters of the previous year, and see the number and percentage of FEV1.


  In normal people, FEV1 decreases by 10-15ml every year.


  The pulmonary function of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), FEV1 decreased by 30-40 ml every year.


  3、Establish correct awareness of treatment


  Although patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have symptoms such as cough, expectoration, and dyspnea, many people feel that these symptoms are not fatal at the initial stage of COPD, and it does not matter whether they are treated or not. Therefore, they often miss the best time for treatment, and it is too late to treat them when they are serious.




  4、Pay attention to daily pulmonary rehabilitation


  Pulmonary rehabilitation is an important part of health management for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in stable stage, aiming to promote their physiological, psychological and social adaptability and improve their self-care ability.


  Lung rehabilitation mainly includes health education, exercise training, oxygen therapy, nutrition guidance and salt therapy.


  International studies on salt therapy have shown that salt therapy combined with drug therapy in the remission period of COPD can effectively reduce the number of hospitalizations due to acute attacks, and better improve lung function.




  At present, more and more experts affirm and recommend the application of salt therapy in the rehabilitation treatment of COPD.
