while filling out job applications there is a section regarding disabilities and reasonable accomodations. COPD is not listed as a disability but does qualify for state and federal benefits. If someone with COPD uses O2 or a motorized wheelchair for mobility it does not allow you to use that as "reasonable accommodation" on most job applications including federal/state job applications. The COPD community needs to address this with the governmental agencies responsible.
