Is COPD Affecting Your Quality of Life?

It starts off with a shortness of breath or a constant cough. But before you know it, it’s difficult to take deep breaths and additional oxygen is needed to get through the day. It’s then, that you find out you have COPD.

According to the American Lung Association, COPD is the third leading cause of death in the United States and more than 11 million people have been diagnosed with the disease. COPD also encompasses emphysema and chronic bronchitis.
