Experts estimate that as many as thirty-five million Americans literally can't catch their breath-- they suffer from COPD, the fourth leading cause of death in America. COPD is a combination of chronic bronchitis and emphysema with airflow obstruction.
This book offers hope to those suffering from COPD and their families as it describes "How to quit smoking--at any age," "How to navigate the activities of daily living," "How oxygen therapy may help you," "How to foster a successful doctor/patient relationship," and "The importance of proper exercise."
COPD is often known as the "silent" disease because its symptoms progress slowly and worsen over time. If you or a loved one has COPD, get the facts in COPING WITH CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE.
