COPD stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and affects the lungs of sufferers. You should talk to the Doctor or Specialist who organised the test as they will be able to explain exactly what the condition is, what your test reading means and what can be done to change and/or improve it. There are breathing exercises that you can do to assist the condition, i.e. improve lung function but it will not cure the condition.
