Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD):
A Multimedia Course

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)—also known as emphysema and chronic bronchitis—is a very serious condition, and the third leading cause of death in the United States. Affecting 16 million Americans, it is one of the most common lung diseases, characterized by breathlessness caused by chronic obstruction of air flow in and out of the lungs. Its symptoms may be progressive over time, but COPD is often preventable and treatable.

Knowledge and understanding of COPD can help those who suffer from it to feel more control, and greatly improve quality of life. COPD: A Multimedia Course is an easy-to-use guide to COPD, its symptoms, known causes, diagnosis, and available treatment options. The program offers over three hours of self-guided instruction, divided into five lessons, spanning a comprehensive curriculum of patient education and training. Lessons include strategies for improved diet, fitness, and other lifestyle changes that can alleviate symptoms and improve overall respiratory health. The course also describes medications and therapies that can prevent or minimize worsening of the disease.
