    The Burden of COPD
    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), which encompasses both chronic bronchitis and emphysema, is one of the commonest respiratory conditions of adults in the the developed world. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease poses an enormous burden to society both in terms of direct cost to healthcare services and indirect costs to society through loss of productivity. The exact prevalence of COPD is difficult to determine because of problems with definition and coding. Sometimes it is difficult to differentiate between COPD and chronic severe asthma, and patients with mild to moderate disease may not be identified as suffering from COPD. In the western world, COPD is probably the fourth commonest cause of death in middle aged to elderly men after ischaemic heart disease, lung cancer and cerebrovascular disease. In the UK, it is estimated that 18% of males and 14% of females aged 40-68 years may have developed features of COPD, and in the USA, 13.6% of males and 11.8% of females aged 65-74 years are thought to have COPD. According to statistics produced by the American Lung Association, 15 million Americans suffer from COPD and it claimed the lives of 87,000 Americans in 1992. In the UK, respiratory conditions are the third commonest cause of chronic sickness in working aged people age 45-64 years, is the commonest cause of respiratory related death (fig.1), and COPD accounts for 56% of days of certified incapacity due to respiratory conditions in males. In 1989, an estimated $7 billion was spent on provision of care for patients with COPD in the USA, with a further cost of $8 billion due to lost productivity.

    American Lung Association Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, a major cause of death throughout the world, and the third leading cause for disability in the United States. No wonder that when the doctor utters those initials, "COPD" or "Emphesema", for the first time, the individual goes into a state of shock and depression. This web site is dedicated to helping you understand that is not necessary !
    This Jukebox will appear on every page. If you click on it, you will be taken to music controls so you can stop the music or if you have a sound card and not hearing anything, you can go for a tune. Diagnosis of COPD is not necessarily a death sentence!
    There are options for the COPD patient!
    The COPD patient can make the difference! L ike most web sites of this nature, the authors do not intend to provide advice on the medical treatment of this disease. Treatment of medical problems is a very complex procedure best left up to medical professionals. It is appropriate for the patient to form a partnership with their physicians to achieve optimum treatment and to realize appropriate progress.

    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
    a.k.a. Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (COLD)
    What is COPD?
    Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is comprised primarily of two related diseases - chronic bronchitis and emphysema . In both diseases, there is chronic obstruction of the flow of air through the airways and out of the lungs, and the obstruction generally is permanent and progressive over time. Asthma also is a pulmonary disease in which there is obstruction to the flow of air out of the lungs, but unlike chronic bronchitis and emphysema, the obstruction in asthma usually is reversible. Between "attacks" of asthma the flow of air through the airways usually is good. There are exceptions, however. In some patients with COPD the obstruction can be partially reversed by medications that enlarge or dilate the airways (bronchodilators) as with asthma. Conversely, some patients with asthma can develop permanent airway obstruction if chronic inflammation of the airways leads to scarring and narrowing of the airways.
