Three diseases are involved in most cases of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and asthma.
All of these diseases are growing in prevalence in the Western world, most likely as a consequence of increased environmental pollution and increased exposure to allergens. Reviewing current treatment options, TherapCited by: 2.
Both cause permanent damage to the lungs; but effective treatment can prevent further damage. Therapeutic strategies in COPD is a new title dedicated to helping doctors improve the quality of life of patients suffering from this disease.
The book is made up. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has been traditionally understood as a disease of the lungs characterized by chronic airflow obstruction, which, in turn, is due to the presence of specific structural abnormalities of both the airways (bronchitis and bronchiolitis) and the pulmonary parenchyma (emphysema) ().Much more recently, a number of studies have indicated that these Cited by: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) affects millions of people across the world.
COPD is not only a major burden to patients but is also costly and results in billions of dollars of direct and indirect costs annually. In recent years and with advancement of science, the understanding of COPD has improved significantly. Fortunately, current management guidelines consider COPD a.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a debilitating multicomponent respiratory condition. The pathogenesis and clinical manifestations of COPD are not confined solely to pulmonary inflammation and structural remodelling, but extend to and encompass a variety of systemic alterations. 1 These extrapulmonary effects include systemic inflammation, nutritional abnormalities Cited by: I'm Dr James Donohue, professor of medicine and former chief of the Division of Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care Medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill.
I would like to welcome you to this program titled "Therapeutic Strategies for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease" (COPD). The prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is reported to be less than that of asthma (in most nations, less than 6%), but this figure is likely low because of underdiagnosis (GOLD ).
