  • Emphysema and asthma both make it hard to breath. Emphysema makes it hard to breath all the time. With asthma, breathing ability is highly variable. That is one way to tell if you have Asthma or  Emphysema. On my bad asthma days,  like if I have been around smoke, cats or have the flu,. I can hardly breath and am choking on flem.  When my asthma is under control I can run a half marathon.

  • So looking into this as a deep study and a lot of this is alarming to me as I’ve lived with the majorly of what’s talked about here progressively for 15 years. The sputum gets bad enough that the longer I go without a cough the worse it gets. I often end up gargling up my spit when I lay down at night to rest.

I am a student in faculty of radiologic technology in thailand(be a radiologic technician in the future). My thesis is about Hyperaeration in the chest xray, I search really hard to fine about explanation of this word but I didnt found it… until I had already watched you clip (this and pathophysiology of copd) Its really help even through you didnt talk about this much and didnt say this word out but Can you make sure to me that hyperaeration from radiologist diagnosed was mean air trapping? And Am I correct understand that hyperaeration(Lung, chest xray) is mean Too much air in the lung and CXR still be the doctor needed to use in clinical diagnosis.

  • This article provides some helpful resources and tips for living with COPD during the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Another great video. My mother passed from cancer last September and the chemo she was given compromised her lung function to the point she needed constant oxygen and nebulizers 3-4 times a day. She was in and out of hospital 3 times with acidosis so I did a lot of research to understand what was happening. It’s very interesting but a sobering reminder that while we have an enormous amount of resilience, were still pretty fragile.
