Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive inflammatory lung disease that causes symptoms, such as coughing, difficulty breathing, wheezing, and sputum production due to airflow obstruction.

COPD is usually caused by chronic exposure to irritating gases or particle pollution, especially from cigarette smoke. Individuals with COPD have an increased risk of developing other lung conditions, including lung cancer and heart disease. Management of COPD, includes medications, oxygen therapy, and even surgery to help patients breathe easier.
