Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello! My name is Dr.Ehtisham. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Sorry to hear about this
Have your doctor discussed about any other possible options to improve the shortness of breath?
Thanks for the details
If this is a recent flare up then you should be put on a short course of steroids
If the problem is continuing for some time then your doctor must discuss with you about a non invasive ventilation
This is usually given by a machine and it is called BiPAP
That have shown to be very effective in COP patients
Please do let me know if you have any other question
You are welcome
