Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) represents an important public health challenge and is a major cause of chronic morbidity and mortality throughout the world.

COPD is currently the fourth leading cause of death in the world but is projected to be the 3rd leading cause of death byaccording to the World Health : Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease.

This guideline offers best practice advice on the identification and care of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

It aims to define the symptoms, signs and investigations required to establish a diagnosis of COPD. It also aims to define the factors that are necessary to assess its severity, provide prognostic information and guide best management.

Obstructive lung diseases such as chronic bronchitis, asthma, and emphysema all result in increases in lung volume. The physiological mechanisms of asthma and COPD that differ in the details of the inflammatory processes, cells, mediators, and pathology may be very similar physiologically in terms of hyperinflation, loss of static recoil, and.

Obstructive Lung Diseases. Obstructive lung diseases include conditions that make it hard to exhale all the air in the lungs. Lung damage, or the narrowing of pulmonary airways causes an inability to fully inhale and exhale, leaving a large amount of uncirculated air in the lungs.

If one includes all types of chronic generalized airways obstruction under the heading of “COPD,” diagnosis of this condition requires only the demonstration of an obstructive ventilatory impairment on spirometric testing that persists despite maximum medical therapy.
