Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an umbrella term used to describe progressive lung diseases including emphysema, chronic bronchitis, refractory (non-reversible) asthma, and some forms of bronchiectasis. This disease is characterized by increasing breathlessness.

COPD can develop for years without noticeable shortness of breath. You begin to see the symptoms in the more developed stages of the disease.

  • Increased breathlessness
  • Frequent coughing (with and without sputum)
