Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) – iMER’s first case

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) - iMER's first caseMr. A. N. is an 81 old male patient, from Nicosia, Cyprus. He was a real heavy smoker (30 pack/day), and reports recurrent episodes of shortness of breath and wheezing. Between such episodes, Mr. A. N. is very active and walks and swims daily, but by 2005, he reported a significant deterioration in symptoms.

Mr. A. N. requested from iMER a Second Medical Opinion and he was referred to the Hadassah Medical center. Dr. Neville Berkman, a Pulmonary super-specialist diagnosed Mr. A. N. as suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with emphysema and a significant degree of reversible airway obstruction (“asthma-like”).

Provided with a clear understanding of his conditions and an adequate treatment, that included instructions to continue his very active life, a very satisfied Mr. A. N. returned to Nicosia, to his family, to his life.
