Panic Attacks and COPD


A panic attack on its own can be a terrifying experience. However, for patients suffering from  chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)  as well, things can easily turn worse. Panic leads to short breath and coupled with COPD, such an attack can become lethal.

Managing Panic Attacks in COPD

Many people with COPD suffer from panic attacks when they can’t catch their breath. In fact, the prevalence of panic disorder in COPD is approximately 10 times higher than it is in the general population.

I absolutely love your blog.. Pleasant colors & theme.
Did you build this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m looking to create
my own personal website and would like to learn where you got this from or
just what the theme is named. Many thanks!

naturally like your website but you need to take a look at the
spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife
with spelling problems and I to find it very troublesome to inform the truth nevertheless I will
surely come back again.
