Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) includes a group of lung diseases that block airflow and make it difficult to breathe. Emphysema, chronic bronchitis, refractory (non-reversible) asthma and other progressive lung diseases fall within the category we call COPD. Nearly 3 million new cases of COPD are diagnosed in the U.S. each year.
