COPD Symptom Tracker

When you're sitting in a doctor's office, it can be difficult to remember the details about your health. But with COPD, those details matter. Your description of your COPD symptoms -- as well as your medicine use and lifestyle -- will guide your health care provider's choice of COPD treatment.

Routinely print copies and fill out the COPD log so that your health care provider can monitor how your symptoms and daily activities affect your life. This simple tool provides useful information to your health care provider and allows you to participate in your COPD treatment.
