More About Our Springfield COPD Services

COPD is a lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. It is caused by damage to the lungs over many years, usually from smoking. COPD is often a mix of two diseases:

  • Chronic bronchitis 
  • Emphysema 

The main symptoms of COPD are:

  • A long-lasting (chronic) cough. 
  • Mucus that comes up when you cough. 
  • Shortness of breath that gets worse when you exercise.

We are also sensitive to the fear and anxiety that can come with breathing problems. When you come to Mercy, you will receive compassionate, supportive care to improve your breathing and help you get back to living life to its fullest.
