What is COPD Disease? | COPD Symptoms and Treatment

COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is an umbrella term for lung disorders.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), also known as chronic obstructive lung disease, is a blanket term used to describe lung disorders like chronic bronchitis and emphysema. COPD sufferers have trouble breathing due to airflow blockage leading to, and caused by, damage of the lungs.

COPD is a long term chronic illness made significantly worse if the patient smokes. The American Lung Association declares COPD to be the third leading cause of death in the United States.
