What is COPD?

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), also known as chronic obstructive lung disease, is the name given to the co-occurrence of chronic bronchitis and emphysema, a pair of commonly co-existing diseases of the lungs in which the airways become narrowed.

  • Chronic means long term or persistent
  • Obstructive refers to the narrowing of the airways caused by both chronic bronchitis and emphysema
  • Pulmonary refers to the lungs
The conditions of chronic bronchitis and emphysema commonly co-exist and the term COPD is used to describe the state of narrowed airways and a shortness of breath resulting from these conditions. Unlike asthma, COPD is poorly reversible and usually becomes progressively worse over time.

COPD is most commonly caused by long term tobacco smoking. Chronic bronchitis causes an inflammation of the lining of the lungs and excessive sputum production and emphysema causes the inflammation and destruction of the lining of the alveoli in the lungs.

What are the Symptoms of COPD?

As most cases of COPD are the direct result of tobacco smoking, the disease is gradual and symptoms build up over time. There are a number of common conditions which are associated with COPD:

  • Chronic cough with sputum production – also known as smokers’ cough
  • Shortness of breath or dyspnea – a tightness of the chest often described by suffers of COPD as “My breathing requires effort” or “ I can’t seem to get enough air in”
  • Wheezing
  • Breathing out – taking a longer time than breathing in
