I don't know what medical thinking is on this subject, but I have COPD and steam baths help me. I don't know about saunas (dry heat) because I haven't tried them.

Keep in mind that many of the medications you take for COPD are drying. That might be a reason for using steam baths. If you have a serious mucus problem, ask your lung MD to prescribe Mucomyst (acetylcysteine). It got rid of the bronchitis aspect of my condition completely and immediately.
