COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) refers to a group of diseases that cause breathing-related problems - diseases such as: emphysema, bronchitis and asthma. Smoking is a leading factor in causing these diseases but there are many other factors that contribute to making COPD one of the leading causes of death and illness in the US today. When detected early, COPD can be managed and its course often altered.
American Health Network provides pulmonary testing to detect COPD and offers a COPD Management Program to help patients in many of its facilities. These facilities have respiratory therapists on staff to evaluate needs, educate patients and work with your physician in the management of COPD.
