Cold air is often a problem for many people with COPD and causes shortness of breath. Cold wind also causes problems. In both cases, a person with COPD will become fatigued quickly. If you must go out in cold weather, here are some tips that may help:

1. Wear a scarf, mask and try and breathe through your nose to warm the air you are breathing.
2. If you use an inhaler, ask your doctor if it is permissible to use it 30 minutes before you go out.
3. If you use oxygen, keep your tubing inside your clothing to warm the air.
4. Wear several layers of loose fitting garments so as not to constrict your breathing but allow you protection against the cold.
5. Try and limit your exposure to the cold as much as possible and  try to not over exert.

People with COPD must always take extraordinary care of themselves year round, but it takes an even greater significance during winter months. #copd
