Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD) is an extremely debilitating disease. For the sufferer, everyday activities become impossible - from walking to the shops, to cleaning their teeth - because they can't get enough oxygen into their lungs. The 4 video tracks on this album look at the possible causes of COPD, how it is diagnosed, and the inspirational stories of people dealing with the disease. This material forms part of The Open University course SDK125, Introducing health sciences: a case study approach
