Dyspnea, ineffective secretion clearance, and the potential for exacerbation are three common problems of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Assessment and management of these problems are important in the overall care of this population. Teaching patients breathing exercises and secretion clearance techniques and referring them to comprehensive pulmonary rehabilitation programs improves functional capacity and quality of life.
