Am I at risk of COPD?

Many people who are at risk for COPD, easily mistake their symptoms for other things, such as being out of shape. Answer the following questions honestly and find out whether you are at risk.

Do you have recurring asthma or bronchitis?


Have you been a smoker for many years?


Does your breathing feel suddenly different?


Do ordinary activities often leave you breathless?


Does your cough feel more shallow, as if there is an obstruction you cannot dislodge?


Do your colds last for weeks?


Do you have at least one prolonged bout of bronchitis every winter?


Do you have a morning 'smoker's cough'?


Is there always lots of mucus when you cough?


Do you have a chronic cough even when you don't have a flu or cold?
