COPD

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary (Lung) Disease (COPD) occurs when the airways become swollen, weak and collapse easily making it difficult to exhale.  The most common signs of COPD is shortness of breath especially with activity. People may also have a daily cough with or without phlegm.

The main goal of the COPD Program is to diagnose and educate our patients with COPD to help keep them as healthy as possible. The patients are taught the best way to stay healthy while living with COPD, by learning when they need to be seen by the doctor and what they can do to help slow down their COPD.

COPD is under diagnosed because people don’t realize they have it until it has become quite severe.  Patients who might be at risk of developing COPD may receive a COPD Letter & Questionnaire based on their history and may be contacted to complete a Spirometry (breathing test).  The purpose of a spirometry is to see how well the lungs are working and can tell us if someone has COPD. Most patients will do this right at The Clinic.

If you have any questions about our COPD program or feel you are at risk for COPD please contact us at 705-740-6868 or chughes@ptboclinic.com.
