COPD is shortness of breath as illustrated by the women and men on the video. The idea is that they had to “gasp” for air. One woman could not blow the dust from a window sill. Another gentlemen could not run from base to base as he played baseball. Sometimes, COPD can be confused with bronchitis but it is a condition that should get medical attention. One of the reasons for the illness mention was continually smoking cigarettes from a young age. This revelation was from a man who at 53 could not run from base to base. He had been smoking for over thirty years. One of the scenes of someone suffering from COPD showed the woman with tubes running up her nose. The tubes enabled her to breathe easier.
Key Points of Video:
- 1This video shows many people when they discover that they have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Asthma is part of this disease.
- 2Some of these people had smoked, which is a major cause of COPD.
- 3These people are very honest about how difficult it is when they are gasping for air.
