  • COPD is cardio obstructive pulmonary disease. Normally brought on in later years by smoking. Ive not known it had stages and i was in the medical field for years. Search it online and see what you can find.

  • There are 4 stages with copd. from 1 the easiest to 4 the most heavy one. it depends on the percentage the lung is still working.
    Have a look here: That what my grandmother is using... she had stage 3 and is now back on stage 2.
