Save Your Breath

When most people say they are “breathing easier,” they mean a problem has been removed, or a challenge has been overcome. For people with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and other chronic lung diseases, simply breathing is the problem.

Emphysema and chronic bronchitis are two of the most common conditions that contribute to COPD, which causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. COPD is treatable and maintainable.
