Pulmonary Function Tests for COPD & Bronchitis

Treatments for Chronic Bronchitis & COPD at Texas Lung Care

At Texas Lung Care Associates, our pulmonologists can provide an accurate diagnosis for Chronic Bronchitis and COPD. During your initial visit, we'll gather information about your medical history, perform a physical exam, and respiratory testing to determine the best course of action for you. 

When treating a COPD patient, our pulmonologists develop an individualized treatment plan that may include medications and lifestyle changes. We have experience in the use of: 

  • Antibiotics: To treat infections caused by bacteria.
  • Bronchodilators: To relax the airways and make breathing easier.
  • Inhaled steroids: To reduce inflammation in the lungs and airways.
  • Immunomodulatory therapy: To reduce inflammation and lessen symptoms of COPD/emphysema.
  • Oxygen therapy: To deliver oxygen to the lungs as needed.
  • Bronchoscopic Lung Volume Reduction: minimally invasive treatment for severe emphysema

Each patient is treated based on their medical history and the severity of their condition. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the most common chronic bronchitis causes & signs?

Signs and symptoms of chronic bronchitis may include a persistent cough that produces mucus (sputum), fatigue, shortness of breath, chest tightness, wheezing and difficulty breathing.

How often will I need refills for any COPD medications?

The frequency of refills for COPD medications depends on a number of factors, including the type of medication being used, frequency and length of treatment, and the individual’s reaction to the medication. Generally speaking, most people with COPD will need to refill their medications every one to two months.
