Are you suffering from COPD

  COPD is characterized by a progressive, partially reversible limitation
of airflow. This airflow limitation is caused by two processes,
chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which occur together in most patients. Chronic bronchitis is defined clinically as persistent cough and sputum production. Emphysema is the progressive destruction
of the gas-exchanging surfaces of the lungs, which usually manifests
clinically as chronic dyspnea.
Cigarette smoking is the most common cause of COPD. Inhalation of tobacco smoke from Cigar, Pipe and other such devices can also cause COPD.
