What is a COPD?
COPD is a group of inflammatory lung diseases, like chronic bronchitis and emphysema caused by long-term exposure to cigarette smoke and other environmental irritants. People suffering from COPD have a greater risk of lung cancer and heart disease than those without. However, it’s still possible to control the symptoms of the disease and preserve a better quality of life thanks to proper medical education and professional treatment.
