Brief Answer:
Use the oxygen and Albuterol inhaler

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome in HCM

I can understand your concern

According to the situation of your COPD you should continue oxygen at 1-2 litre per minute.
If the breathlessness is bad or gets worse even with the oxygen than you should go to ER department to get more help.

Or if you have Albuterol inhaler you can use it until you go to the specialist pulmonologist

It is very important to use the inhalers to control the COPD.

Hope to have been helpful
