For some people, COPD gets worse over time; quitting smoking and lifestyle changes only help so much. So when lung disease gets to a more advanced stage, other interventions are needed. John, Jean and Jan talk about what it’s like to use oxygen and how to take your equipment with you on vacation. And Dr. Mina Pirzadeh walks us through lung transplants and other procedures you may never have heard of before.
