COPD. Not sure what COPD is? You’re not alone. Broadly, COPD is an umbrella term used to describe chronic lung diseases that limit airflow in and out of your lungs and result in an increased shortness of breath as the disease progresses.

My patients and I talk about the effects of smoking frequently during appointments, and COPD is one of those diseases that is strong correlated with smoking, so current and ex-smokers should be aware of it. If you are interested in a quick read, check out this COPD Diagnosis.
