Conical Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

COPD involves:

  • Chronic obstructive bronchitis
  • Pulmonary emphysema

COPD is characterized by progressive shortness of breath and tobacco is its main risk factor. A fundamental feature of COPD are periods of worsening symptoms, known as exacerbations. These can be caused by infections or exposure to high amounts of air pollution.

Many patients do not require daily treatment, only undergoing treatment during periods of worsening disease. Patients with daily complaints require daily treatment with inward therapy to reduce airway obstruction and inflammation.

Smoking cessation is the best way to prevent the disease, but also its progression, in addition to improving the quality of life of patients.
