Control Measures for Prevention of COPD

People with COPD have difficulty clearing their lungs of bacteria, dusts and other pollutants in the air. This makes them at risk for lung infections that may cause further damage to the lungs. Historically, acute toxicity was associated with occupational exposures to concentrations of soluble beryllium salts greater than 100 mg/m3. With the advent of industrial control measures to minimize air levels, acute pulmonary syndromes have virtually disappeared. In addition to environmental exposure, genetic predisposition seems to have a major role in the development of CBD. A variant of the human leukocyte antigen (HLA-DPb1 [Glu69]) is found in 80% to 97% of patients with CBD and in only 30% 

 

Avoid inhaling tobacco smoke, home and workplace air pollutants, and respiratory infections to prevent developing COPD. Early detection of COPD might change its course and progress. A simple test, called spirometry can be used to measure pulmonary—or lung—function and detect COPD in anyone with breathing problems. Pulmonary rehabilitation is an individualized treatment program that teaches COPD management strategies to increase quality of life. Plans may include breathing strategies, energy-conserving techniques, and nutritional counselling.
