My Brother Has Copd And A Lung Capacity Of 35 What Stage Is He In

Answer

Hi Molly,

Your brother's doctor is the best one to answer this question as he/she will know more about your brother's total health condition, but at 35%, your brother is probably in Stage 3, or severe COPD. Most patients at this stage need to be on supplemental oxygen 24/7.

Hope this helps you understand, but never be afraid to call the doctor's office and ask questions. That's your right!

Best,

Kathi
