Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is able to be treated and delayed. Many interventions include smoking cessation and daily maintenance of drug therapy. In clinical practice, although respiratory physicians have given optimal drug treatment to patients, there is no treatment for etiological factors in these treatments, and they have little effect on the long-term prognosis of COPD. Therefore, this paper puts forward a method of continuing care. Through Meta analysis of the therapeutic effects of statins, it is shown that statins have a positive impact on the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. On the other hand, the study shows that continuing care can reduce the SGRQ (St George's respiratory questionnaire) score of the patient, thereby improving the patient's quality of life. Therefore, both drug therapy and continuing care are effective methods for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which can be effectively combined.
