COPD is a progressive disease that develops slowly and makes it hard to breathe. It can cause coughing that produces large amounts of mucus, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and other symptoms. Symptoms often worsen over time and can limit the ability to do routine activities.
Nationwide, COPD is a major cause of disability, and it's the third leading cause of death. Currently, millions of people are diagnosed with COPD, but many more people may have the disease and not even know it.
