Introduction. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a common preventable and treatable disease, is characterized by persistent airflow limitation that is usually progressive and that is caused by an enhanced chronic inflammatory response in the airways and the lung to noxious particles or gases .COPD is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and results in an economic and.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma are the most frequent chronic respiratory diseases that affect the general population. For a long period of time these two conditions were considered to be sepa.. Recognition of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) as a major health problem is approximately 50 years old, coincident with the 50th anniversary of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).

Thorax, 59 (7) (2004), pp. 574-580 COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe. Progressive means the disease gets worse over time. COPD can cause coughing that produces large amounts of a slimy substance called mucus, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and other symptoms

Testing of the hospital anxiety and depression scale in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) kills more than 3 million people worldwide every year. Despite progress in the treatment of symptoms and prevention of acute exacerbations, few advances have been made to ameliorate disease progression or affect mortality. A better understanding of the complex disease mechanisms resulting in COPD is needed Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may experience an acute worsening of respiratory symptoms that results in additional therapy; this event is defined as a COPD exacerbation (AECOPD). Hospitalization for AECOPD is accompanied by a rapid decline in health status with a high risk of mortality or other negative outcomes such as need for endotracheal intubation or intensive.

It compared data from about 36,000 people with COPD with data from some 222,000 healthy people. The researchers found 82 regions associated with COPD, some of which had not previously been linked. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is currently the third leading cause of hospital readmissions in the United States ().Because the quality of care for hospitalized patients with COPD is often inconsistent and does not always follow guideline-recommended care, there is potential to reduce excessive readmissions after hospitalization for COPD exacerbations (2, 3) The frequency of exacerbations was 1.48 exacerbations per patient-year in the azithromycin group, as compared with 1.83 per patient-year in the placebo group (P=0.01), and the hazard ratio for.

COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a lung disease characterized by difficulty breathing. As this eMedTV article explains, it develops when lung damage occurs. This page offers an overview of this condition, including symptoms and treatment This study aimed to analyze the literature systematically to determine the clinical characteristics and prognosis of patients with connective tissue disease (CTD) with combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE) compared to those of patients with CTD-interstitial lung disease (CTD-ILD) without emphysema. We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, and KoreaMed for relevant articles. For COPD patients, loosening up the muscles around the neck, chest and upper back may offer more room for the lungs to expand, which could make breathing a little easier. We try to help.
