COPD

COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is a chronic medical condition in the elderly (60-plus), also known as "smoker's disease".

The airways are increasingly blocked and exacerbations (increase of symptoms) are common.

Exacerbations deteriorate the disease and diminish the quality of life.
