Date:11/17/2010

rized by airflow obstruction, which leads to the hallmark symptoms of COPD - chronic cough, chest tightness, shortness of breath, increased effort to breathe and increased mucus production. Over time, patients with COPD suffer from shortness of breath so severe that it interferes with the most basic daily activities including sleeping, talking, and even dressing.

About World COPD DayWorld COPD Day is an annual event organized by the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) to improve awareness and care of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) around the world. World COPD Day 2010 will take place on November 17 around the theme "2010 - The Year of the Lung: Measure your lung health - Ask your doctor about a simple breathing test called spirometry."About the ResearchIn-home interviews were conducted with 16 COPD patients in Phoenix, AZ, and New York, NY.  The goals of the interviews were to uncover first-hand insights into how the disease impacts patient lives; understand who the COPD sufferer is, including lifestyle elements and life goals that may be compromised because of COPD; and to identify perceptions about COPD and participants' core emotions in living with the disease.

Respondents had a range of disease severity and included a representative mix of respondents in terms of age, income level, race, and education.

All research participants had been diagnosed with COPD, including chronic bronchitis and/or emphysema. The in-home setting also enabled engagement with patient family members to see how living with the condition affects the caregiver.
