What does "Pulmonary" mean?

"Pulmonary" refers to anything related to the lungs or the respiratory system. It encompasses conditions, functions, and medical services associated with the lungs, including the diagnosis and treatment of respiratory diseases and disorders. Pulmonary health is crucial for proper breathing and overall well-being.

What is "COPD"?

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a progressive respiratory condition characterized by persistent airflow limitation. Typically caused by long-term exposure to irritating gases or particulate matter, most commonly from cigarette smoke. COPD includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, leading to symptoms like cough, shortness of breath, and chest tightness. It is a major cause of morbidity and mortality globally, necessitating comprehensive management strategies, including lifestyle changes and medications to alleviate symptoms and slow disease progression.
