Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is quite common, even more so than asthma. A typical symptom is a persistant cough. When the condition is advanced, it gets harder and harder to breathe. At that point even everyday activities such as climbing stairs, gardening, or taking a walk can leave you out of breath. COPD develops gradually over the course of many years.
