Managing your COPD

COPD stands for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This is a term used for a number of lung conditions including chronic bronchitis and emphysema. In COPD the muscles around the airways tighten and get narrower making it difficult for air to get in and out of the lungs. There are a number of useful resources to help manage your COPD:

COPD assessment test

To measure what impact the COPD is having on your life, you can use the online COPD Assessment Test.
