Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

More than 15.3 million people in the U.S. suffer from COPD.

COPD stands for “chronic obstructive pulmonary disease”. COPD is a progressive lung disease. “Progressive” means that it gets worse over time. Emphysema and chronic bronchitis are 2 diseases that are part of COPD.

In COPD, the airways of the lungs become inflamed making them narrow and clogged with mucus. This makes it difficult to get air in and out of the lungs which leads to breathing difficulties. It causes serious long-term disability and early death.

COPD: Facts, Statistics and You

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common lung disease, affecting 15.3 million Americans, and the number is growing. It may cause serious long-term disability and early death. The most significant risk factor for COPD is long-term cigarette smoking. There's no cure, but COPD can be prevented and treated.

People can live with COPD for many years through medications, oxygen therapy, pulmonary rehabilitation and social support.
