A great video here from the Lung Foundation Australia about an important genre of Lung Disease, COPD.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an umbrella term for conditions including emphysema, chronic bronchitis and chronic asthma which is irreversible. COPD is a lung disease that affects 14% (or one in seven) Australians aged 40 or over.* COPD is also the second leading cause of avoidable hospital admissions in Australia.*
While there is no cure for COPD, as you will note in the video, there are steps that can be taken to breathe easier and perhaps most importantly, improve quality of life, particularly if it is identified and managed early. This starts by simply, having a CHAT.
