From the Paper:

"Comment on chronic management of the patient's COPD. During first consult, the patient had a productive morning cough and his sputum was white, short of breath if he walks too far, but says it doesn't bother him. His wife says his shortness of breath seems to be getting worse. Noted at follow-up 2 months later was that he stopped Lopressor because it made him tired and he was wheezing more. Physical examination during first consult only revealed diminished breath sounds throughout both lung fields with expiratory wheezes at bases."
