COPD means chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It is one of the most misunderstood common lung diseases because it involves a combination of disorders that increasingly damage the lungs and make breathing more and more difficult as it exacerbates. Cigarette smoking and second-hand smoke are the leading causes of COPD. Current statistics put the figures at approximately 12 million Americans who have chronic COPD. It causes around more than a 100,000 deaths every year, making it the 4th most common cause of death in the US. COPD impairs airflow to the lungs. Thus, the patient suffers from chronic coughing, shortness of breathing, frequent respiratory infections, and in severe cases, coughing up blood, weight loss and pulmonary hypertension. For the patient with severe COPD, the scariest part of having the disease is not being able to breathe. The patients, and family members caring for them, become a nervous wreck because of the struggles in difficulty breathing. They live each day with the fear of dying because the next breath might be the last. This book is an empowering health guide for COPD patients and their families. It will give insights on: The goodness of oxygen therapy Importance of exercise Mobility devices Alternative ways and elements in treating COPD Importance of vital help and support systems Boosting your emotional quotient and ways to cope and lead a good life Understanding the “end stage” of COPD COPD is a major cause of disability. The disease is progressive so it will get worse over time. However, treatment and therapy revolves around prolonging life expectancy and giving the best quality of life for patients as well as those involved in the care of the suffering love one.
