Protecting those with COPD


Your medical information. On You. Keeping you safe.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an umbrella term which describes a group of lung conditions that make it difficult to empty air out of the lung because the airways have become narrow1.

As the symptoms of COPD can indicate danger to the brain, many people with COPD also experience anxiety or panic attacks2. MedicAlert provides the reassurance that details about your hidden condition are available in an emergency, allowing you the peace of mind to live life to the full.

"MedicAlert provides full reassurance due to the unique aspects of membership, including all medical details being checked by a qualified nurse. I feel safe knowing that my record is medically sound." - Cat Burns
