Medical data on COPD


Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) mainly includes three related respiratory diseases, namely chronic bronchitis, chronic asthma and pulmonary emphysema. In each of the aforementioned conditions, there is a degree of chronic obstruction in the passage of airflow through the airways and through the lungs. This obstruction is generally permanent and may be progressive in the course of years.

A new paper of interest the abstract reads:

“The aim of the present study is to highlight the seasonal cases diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, present in the specialized medical service with acute symptomatology. In order to establish a more accurate diagnosis, besides the specialized medical examination, paraclinical investigations such as standard pulmonary radiography and spirometry, were used.”
