Pulmonary Disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may be a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. Symptoms include breathing difficulty, cough, mucus production and wheezing. It's typically caused by long-term exposure to irritating gases or particulate , most frequently from cigarette smoke. People with COPD are at increased risk of developing heart condition , carcinoma and a spread of other conditions. bronchitis is inflammation of the liner of the bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from the air sacs (alveoli) of the lungs. It's characterized by daily cough and mucus production.

Emphysema may be a condition during which the alveoli at the top of the littlest air passages (bronchioles) of the lungs are destroyed as a results of damaging exposure to cigarette smoke and other irritating gases and particulate. Although COPD may be a progressive disease that gets worse over time, COPD is treatable. With proper management, most of the people with COPD are able to do good symptom control and quality of life, also as reduced risk of other associated conditions.
