An action plan is a contract between you and your doctor about how you will manage your COPD flare-ups. The goal of this action plan is to quickly detect and treat COPD flare-ups.
Especially watch for a COPD flare-up when:
1.    You get a cold or flu. 2.    You feel run down or tired. 3.    You are exposed to air pollution. 4.    After weather changes. 5.    When your mood changes; such as feeling down or anxious.
If you have 1 or more of the following symptoms for 1 to 2 days you are having a COPD flare-up:
1.    Increased shortness of breath compared to normal. 2.    Increased amounts of cough and sputum from normal. 3.    Your sputum changes from its normal colour to a yellow, green or rust colour.
