In this booklet, someone can find out about COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). There's information about what it is, what the symptoms are, and how it's diagnosed and treated. COPD describes a group of lung conditions that make it difficult to empty air out of the lungs because the airways have been narrowed.
