COPD
What is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD?
This term refers to both chronic bronchitis and emphysema, both of which shorten your breath by limiting air flow to/from your lungs. Smoking usually triggers this inflammatory response, and is one of the leading causes of death in the world.

How is COPD treated?
Medications, rehabilitation, drug therapy and stopping smoking are things that can be done to help patients. Oxygen therapy may also be required.
