Talking to Your Doctor About COPD
Your healthcare provider can be a tremendous resource in treating COPD, including chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both. Chronic bronchitis is increased coughing and mucus production caused by inflammation of the airways. Bronchitis is considered chronic (or long-term) if a person coughs and produces excess mucus most days during three months in a year, for two years in a row.
Emphysema is a type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) associated with damage of the air sacs and/or the smallest breathing tubes in the lungs.
