COPD stands for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The term COPD covers conditions such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Nelson Asthma Society run Better Breathing Classes to help support people with this disease. For more information and advice please contact Hilary, Nelson Asthma Society on 546 7675.


World COPD Day held on 19 November 2014 highlights this respiratory disease.  The symptoms include coughing, increased phlegm and breathlessness.  Our Better Breathers Classes (BBC) offer
people the information, help and
support they need.

 

The exercise and support groups teach people how to take
control of their condition, help use oxygen more efficiently, reduce
tiredness and help maintain independence so people can have a better quality of life.
