In addition to quitting smoking, COPD can be treated by a variety of medications. Rescue medications can be used a few times a day to help with flare-ups in the short term.

In this video Dr. Sonali Bose explains how rescue medications work as well as oxygen therapy and other popular COPD treatments.
