November | COPD Awareness Month



National COPD Awareness Month dedicates all of November to educating the public about a disease that makes breathing difficult. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is any disorder that persistently bronchial obstructs airflow. During National COPD Awareness Month, learn about the causes and become an advocate for prevention.

One of the biggest causes of COPD is smoking. While it’s not the only cause, this lifestyle factor plays an overwhelming role in determining risk factors for COPD. If you care about your respiratory health and you smoke, take steps to quit smoking now. Other environmental factors that may point toward COPD include dust, chemical exposure and more.

El Mes nacional de concientización sobre la EPOC dedica todo noviembre a educar al público sobre una enfermedad que dificulta la respiración. La enfermedad pulmonar obstructiva crónica (EPOC) es cualquier trastorno que persistentemente obstruye el flujo de aire bronquial. Durante el Mes Nacional de Concientización sobre la EPOC, conozca las causas y conviértase en un defensor de la prevención.

Una de las mayores causas de EPOC es fumar. Si bien no es la única causa, este factor de estilo de vida juega un papel abrumador en la determinación de los factores de riesgo para la EPOC. Si se preocupa por su salud respiratoria y fuma, tome medidas para dejar de fumar ahora. Otros factores ambientales que pueden apuntar hacia la EPOC incluyen polvo, exposición química y más.
