What is COPD and how to best recognize the symptoms?

COPD is a progressive disease with no known cure, treatment can help ease symptoms, prevent complications and its slow progression. At first, you may not even notice any signs except a bit of a cough and shortness of breath, but as the lungs become more damaged, the symptoms become worse and harder to ignore.

Emphysema: Can you recognize the symptoms?

Emphysema is a respiratory disease where the millions of tiny air sacs in the lungs (alveoli) are damaged or ruptured. As these tiny air sacs are damaged they lose their natural elasticity and this causes the air sacs to close before you fully breathe out (exhale), as a result air gets trapped in the lungs.
