About Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a progressive lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs caused by long-term exposure to irritating gases or particulate matter, most often from cigarettes. Emphysema, a condition in which the alveoli at the end of the bronchioles of the lungs are destroyed, and chronic bronchitis, inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes, are the two most common conditions that contribute to COPD. The disease process is characterized by increasing breathlessness and increased mucus production. COPD is the third leading cause of death in the U.S.
