March 10: Using exercise to feel better with COPD
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) often makes it difficult to breathe, which in turn may limit how active someone is and how much they may be able to exercise. Join Nancy Kemp, pulmonary rehabilitation coordinator at Mercy Cardiac Fitness Center, as she discusses how to use exercise to reduce shortness of breath and build muscle strength and endurance to help you stay more active for longer amounts of time.
