I know that in the modern terminology everyone has COPD but this can be unhelpful when so many conditions are classed as one. My husband has just emphysema and when his oxygen needs are increasing and he is poorly I find it frustrating that someone with a stethoscope will say "don't worry his chest is clear" and we end up in resus again. He is coming home today with some community back up so hopefully things will be easier if he is poorly but any suggestions? Thanks
