Is COPD Affecting Your Quality of Life?

It starts off with a shortness of breath or a constant cough. But before you know it, it’s difficult to take deep breaths and additional oxygen is needed to get through the day. It’s then, that you find out you have COPD.

November is National COPD Awareness Month and to help bring attention to this terrible disease, we’re asking people with lung problems to take our quiz to see the which level of severity COPD is affecting your life. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive form of lung disease ranging from mild to severe. According to the American Lung Association, COPD is the third leading cause of death in the United States and more than 11 million people have been diagnosed with the disease. COPD also encompasses emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

Below is a quiz to see to what level is COPD Affecting Your Quality of Life?
