ChronicObstructivePulmonaryDiseaseData

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an obstructive lung disease characterized by chronically reduced airflow into the lungs. Unlike asthma, the reduction in airflow does not generally improve with medication. When tissue damage occurs primarily in the airways, the condition is called chronic bronchitis. When tissue destruction is focused in the alveoli, the condition is called emphysema. COPD is a manifestation of both conditions, although one condition may dominate. More...
