A Guide to Living with COPD
Living with COPD is a comprehensive guide to understanding and managing COPD. It is suitable for patients newly diagnosed with COPD, individuals who suspect they might be affected by COPD, carers of COPD patients, and anyone who wishes to learn more about chronic lung disease and how it can be effectively managed in daily life. The purpose of this book is to guide you through the what, why and how of COPD and equip you with the information you need to effectively manage your journey through COPD and improve your quality of life.
Understanding your illness will better equip you to manage it, so with the reader’s comprehension in mind, this book will explain in simple terms how the lungs work normally and how lungs affected by COPD might be impaired. Medical terminology can be confusing and difficult to remember, but with diagrams, simple, comprehensive explanations and a glossary of terms, this book will guide you smoothly through the A-Z of COPD terminology. These are the words which are listed in the glossary at the end of the text.
