COPD – The Outlook for Patients with COPD

The outlook for COPD will be different between different people. It will be dependent on the level of  lung damage and other underlying issues. As mentioned any damage that has already occurred can not be undone. However there are treatment options that can limit future damage and also allow the person not to have their daily lives severely limited.

There are some people where treatments are not very effective. The consequence of this is that the quality of life is severely impacted and in some cases may lead to life threatening conditions.
