Re: Help for copd
Sep 25, 2010
COPD-Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a group of diseases that includes asthma, bronchitis,emphysema, and bronchiectasis. At one end we have asthma, at the other end we have pure emphysema. Copd is the major cause of disablility and death in the USA. Two or more obstructive diseases may be present at the same time.
Chronic bronchitis refers to excessive mucus secretion in the bronchial tree. This mucus causes chronic and recurrent productive coughing. In emphysema there is an abnormal enlargement of the air spaces. Because of the altered state of the lung, you may experience some pain while trying to take deep breaths. This disease is hard to explain without some sort of visual reinforcement. I hope I have helped you a little. If you want to know more just post it and I will do my best for you. How old are you? You could look in a medical dictionary for definitions of any words that you do not understand. The library may be a good source of information for you. Let me know how you are doing. Sincerely, searchin
