Nov. 20 is World COPD Day.
12 million people may have COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and not even know it.
COPD is the #3 killer in Arizona and the U.S.
 Early stages of COPD often don't show up on chest X-rays.  Just because a chest X-ray comes back clear, doesn't mean you don't have COPD.
 There's a simple breathing test called spirometry that can detect the early stages of lung damage caused by COPD.  People need to know to ask for it. 
COPD claims one life every 4 minutes in the U.S. 
Symptoms of COPD

  •  Increased breathlessness
  •  Chronic cough
  •  Wheezing
  •  Tightness in your chest
