Diagnosis of COPD

  • The diagnosis is painless.
  • The doctor or the nurse will examine you
  • You will have to do some simple breathing tests, called spirometry
  • They will ask you about your breathing and your health
  • They will ask you about your home and the places you have worked
  • They will ask you whether you are or were a smoker
