COPD is a long-term condition which develops as the result of repeated damage to your lungs. Damage can be caused by breathing in a harmful substance such as smoke, chemical fumes or air pollution.

In fact, cigarette smoke accounts for 8 out of 10 COPD-related deaths each year[1], which is why it's so important to raise awareness of the harmful effects it can have on you and those around you. But, there are so many other steps you can take to ensure that you and your family are protected against this chronic condition.

As part of COPD Awareness Month this November, we’ve created an informative flyer that explains the following: 

  • What COPD is and what causes the condition.
  • Symptoms of COPD.
  • How you can prevent COPD.

Download and share our COPD Month flyer.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions. We’re at your service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
