Patient Video - What advice do you have for persons who have early symptoms of COPD?

Patients with COPD share practical advice for persons who may be experiencing early COPD symptoms. They recommend seeing a health care provider immediately, quitting smoking immediately, avoiding people who are ill and avoiding second-hand smoke and other lung irritants such as dust and barbeque smoke. They also recommend getting tested and starting treatment as soon as possible.
