Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Awareness @Universal

"November 15th is World COPD Day"

Universal Hospital is in full support of awareness toward COPD by offering a FREE COPD Screening at our Breathe Easy Clinic until the 31st of November.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the term used to describe progressive lung diseases including emphysema, chronic bronchitis, refractory (non-reversible) asthma, and some forms of bronchiectasis. This disease is characterized by increasing breathlessness.

Many people mistake their increased breathlessness and coughing as a normal part of aging. In the early stages of the disease, you may not notice the symptoms. COPD can develop for years without noticeable shortness of breath. You begin to see the symptoms in the more developed stages of the disease.
