Are you looking for COPD travel insurance? Avanti provides tailored medical travel insurance for COPD. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is one of the most common respiratory diseases in the UK, affecting around 3 million people. It is an umbrella term for various lung diseases, including emphysema and chronic bronchitis, all of which are mainly caused by smoking.
Symptoms such as tightness of the chest, wheeziness and shortness of breath can be treated with medicines such as inhalers and, in more severe cases, surgery. Patients are advised to stop smoking, eat healthily and steadily increase exercise with breathing techniques. If treated, there is no reason why COPD should stop you from travelling. For more information on COPD, visit the NHS website.
