Is there a treatment in Ayurveda for the stage 4 COPD?

my father is suffering copd stage iv, he's been treatment of omnacortil, deriphyllin, spectoran, faraponem with other supporting drugs including nebulization, postural drainage etc; we've known his condition is irreversible, but would like to get his lungs to clear a bit so that he can avoid exacerbation. is there some ayurvedic relief possible or some home treatment to reduce suffering\/
