What is COPD?
COPD is a progressive lung disease that causes people to become short of breath when trying to climb stairs, carry groceries and other ordinary activities of daily living. Progressive means that the disease gets worse over time. COPD is a complicated disease requiring intensive treatment for the symptoms related to it.

Why is COPD Important?  
It is important as COPD usually develops slowly and symptoms become worse over time. Eventually people with COPD may be unable to do routine activities. Severe COPD may prevent people from doing even basic activities like walking, cooking, or taking care of themselves.
