Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) refers to a group of conditions that obstruct air flow and cause trouble breathing.  COPD includes emphysema, chronic bronchitis and in some cases, asthma.  According to the Centers for Disease Control, while almost 15.7 million Americans report a diagnosis of COPD, more than 50 percent of people with poor lung function also may have the disease and simply not know it.  Early detection and treatment often can alter the course and progression of this potentially debilitating disease.
