Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, is a term used to describe several different lung diseases: emphysema, refractory asthma, chronic bronchitis, and certain kinds of bronchiectasis. COPD is characterized by breathlessness, wheezing, chest tightness, and coughing. Men and women who smoke, as well as those who are regularly exposed to air pollutants, are at much greater risk of developing COPD.
