For people with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), performing even the simplest daily activities presents a challenge. When every breath is a struggle, enjoying life to the fullest becomes more difficult. Carroll Hospital Center serves patients with COPD, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, cystic fibrosis and those who have had or have a pending lung transplant.
