Hello Silfi,

Thank you for the question.

COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) refers to lung function that develops over a long period of time, thereby blocking the air flow from the lungs due to obstruction of swelling and mucus, and making it difficult for sufferers to breathe. Smoking habits or frequent exposure to cigarette smoke are the main factors that trigger COPD. In addition, much literature also mentions this disease is associated with exposure to pollution, old age, genetic, as well as asthma.

COPD will make sufferers experience shortness of breath. Not only that, COPD sufferers also often complain of coughing, wheezing, chest pain, bluish lips and nails, swelling in various parts of the body, and weight loss drastically. As a result of this respiratory disorder, oxygen supply to various body tissues is reduced so that it appears limp. In addition, weakness in people with COPD can also be an indirect impact of asphyxiation which drains energy when breathing.

So far, COPD has not been completely cured. However, clinical symptoms can improve dramatically with appropriate treatment, such as given drugs, physiotherapy, lifestyle modification, and even surgery. Independently, people with COPD should also stop smoking, avoid exposure to cigarette smoke, stay away from air pollution, use air humidifiers, live a healthy diet, exercise regularly every day, and periodically control health status to the doctor, lung doctor, or internist .

Therefore, if your mother's complaint seems very severe, accompany her to check to the nearest health facility. Don't forget to use adequate personal protective equipment, such as masks, and do not carelessly hold public objects to minimize your risk and your mother contracting COVID- 19, which is currently endemic.

Hope this helps ...
