Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

is a lung disease that gets worse over time, characterized by coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness and other symptoms. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of COPD, however, up to 25% of people with COPD never smoked.

Signs and Symptoms



Shortness of Breath


Frequent Coughing


Wheezing


Chest Pain

Many people mistake their increased breathlessness and coughing as a normal part of aging. In the early stages of the disease, you may not notice the symptoms. COPD can develop for years without noticeable shortness of breath. You begin to see the symptoms in the more developed stages of the disease. That’s why it is important that you talk to your doctor as soon as you notice any of these symptoms. Ask your doctor about taking a spirometry test.
