For high blood pressure u have to take antihypertensives like amlodipine or telmisartan.
For emphysema first do a pulmonary function test. It can stage ur disease and treatment will be guided by the stage of ur emphysema or COPD.
Connsult a Pulmonologist for ur emphysema.
For high heart rate do an ECG to diagnose whether it is a simple sinus tachycardia or anything else. Then cosult a Cardiologist.
