Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

November is National COPD Month. COPD (or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a long-term respiratory disease related to emphysema and bronchitis.  Symptoms include persistent coughing, mucus, tightness of the chest, and shortness of breath.  It is frequently caused by smoking, air pollution, and other external sources.  You can find out what Colorado state agencies are doing to address COPD in the following publications, available from our library:

Hi Amy,

First off, I came across your site and wanted to say thanks for providing a great, much-needed lung health resource to the community.

Our readers have found this topic center to answer all of their COPD-related questions extremely useful, such as photos of what the disease can do to your lungs. I thought you might get a kick out of it as well: http://www.healthline.com/health/copd

Naturally, I’d be delighted if you share this resource on http://cospl.blogspot.com/2015/11/chronic-obstructive-pulmonary-disease.html , and/or share it with your followers on social. Either way, keep up the great work Amy!

All the best,
