Managing your COPD
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe. COPD can cause coughing that produces large amounts of mucus, as well as wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and other symptoms. The good news is, you can manage your COPD to help minimize symptoms and even prevent a re-admission to the hospital.
Below are a number of tools including an informative video and a PDF file with an action plan, calendar, and reference sheet to help you manage your COPD.
