What is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)?

If you’re struggling with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), you’re not alone.

Millions of people worldwide suffer from this progressive lung disease, which can make it difficult to breathe and cause long-term damage to your lungs.

Having a care plan will help you to manage your condition and reduce your worry.

Causes and symptoms

COPD is most commonly caused by smoking, but exposure to air pollution, chemicals, and dust can also increase your risk of developing the disease.

Symptoms can include shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, fatigue, frequent respiratory infections, and difficulty performing daily activities.
