COPD and Exercise

Exercise is part of a healthy lifestyle, but COPD patients often feel it is not safe or even possible for them. They are concerned about dyspnea, or shortness of breath, and they fear they might make their disease worse. However, there are exercise options and programs for people with COPD, and your doctor can help come up with the right exercise plan to best fit your needs.

In COPD patients, moderate exercise can help improve energy levels, muscle strength and the ability to maintain and enjoy their lifestyles. For a strong finish to November, the National COPD Awareness Month, learn about exercising with COPD and talk to your doctor about starting an exercise program.

Traveling with COPD

Today is World COPD Day, and a perfect opportunity to learn about traveling with COPD. People with COPD can enjoy taking trips away from home, even those patients who are on oxygen therapy. Traveling with COPD requires some preparation, including talking to your doctor, but with advanced planning people with COPD can enjoy safe and fun trips.

The COPD Foundation website has great information and many useful travel tips for COPD patients. Learn more about traveling with COPD and start planning that trip!
