This paper will review and address the pathological processes in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including the prevalence of comorbidities and the implications of these factors for a common disabling COPD symptom, breathlessness. It will further consider non-pharmacological strategies that community nurses can use to support breathlessness relief in the context of holistic patient care.
