Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States and worldwide (1–4).Although the globally increasing burden of disability associated with the disease is a challenge (), the problem of frequently undiagnosed COPD is equally has been estimated that only one-third to one-half of individuals with chronic Cited by: 2.

Georgios Stratelis, Per Jakobsson, Siguard Molstad, and Olle Zetterstrom Institution of Health and Society, University Hospital, Linkoping, by: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is an umbrella term for several conditions, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema as well as a subset of patients with asthma, that impede the flow of air in the bronchi and trachea. It belongs to a group of lung diseases called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Even it is the main type of COPD. Obstructive means the disease usually causes difficulty in exhaling all the air from the lungs. Emphysema is commonly characterized by the progressive damage to air sac (alveolus, tiny air way at the end of each bronchiole). Introduction. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is, at present, the third leading cause of mortality worldwide. 1 Prevention of COPD should be a major public health goal. 2 Although this goal can be achieved to some extent by smoking cessation, smoking is not the only cause of COPD and additional preventive strategies are needed. Despite the public health importance of COPD Cited by:
Efforts aimed at early detection of these diseases must be intensified, for there is hope that treatment of chronic bronchitis and pulmonary emphysema in the early stages will prevent progression.
