An inflammatory and chronic lung disease, cardio obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) makes it difficult for people to breathe. Millions of Americans are affected by COPD, and it is the third leading cause of death in the United States. If you have COPD, it is possible to treat and manage the symptoms so that its progression is slowed.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a major health concern in the U.S. This disease of the respiratory system causes restricted airflow and an abnormal inflammatory response, which can make something as simple as breathing extremely difficult.
