Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is also called as chronic inflammatory Lung disease that causes long breathing problem and poor airflow. Emphysema and chronic bronchitis are most common type. Emphysema destroys air sacks slowly in lungs and Bronchitis cause inflammation and narrowing in bronchial tubes. COPD symptoms varies for person to person, in earlier stages it may not cause any harm or cannot notice any symptoms to the person who is affected with COPD. The main cause of COPD is tobacco smoking as well as smoke from other sources and air pollution. People who exposed to dust, chemicals and fumes at work place will also leads to COPD.

Lung Diseases are having four stages: Mild, Moderate, Severe, and Very Severe
Mild: Your airflow is normal to breathe, but you don’t notice it much. You cough and have mucus once in a while. Moderate: Your airflow is getting short. You’re often can’t take normal breath after doing something active. This is the point where we have to notice symptoms and get help. Severe: Your airflow is getting hard to breathe. You can't do normal exercise anymore. Your symptoms grown up frequently, also called an exacerbation. Very severe: Your airflow is worst and your quality of life is poor.
Pathophysiology is the development of adverse functional changes connected with a disease. For people, who are suffering with COPD, this starts with damage to the airways and tiny air sacs in the lungs. Symptoms progress is starts from a cough with mucus to difficulty breathing. COPD and lung cancer are caused by cigarette smoking and there is increasing evidence linking the two diseases above a common ethology. COPD is an independent risk factor for lung carcinoma; particularly for squamous cell carcinoma and lung cancer is up to five times more likely to effect in smokers with airflow obstruction than those with normal lung function
Advances like Large, well-designed, drug-treatment trails are useful to be made in the treatment and diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Randomized controlled trails and observational studies are the two main clinical trial designs that provide evidence of effectiveness. Airway clinical research Centre is a clinical research resource for further COPD researchers. COPD PPRN is an opportunity for any individual living with COPD to join a group of people who want revolutionize research by sharing the impact COPD has on their lives.
Respiratory Tract Infections are the infectious diseases of upper respiratory tract and lower respiratory tract. A common disease called Influenza affects both Upper and Lower respiratory tracts. An upper respiratory tract (URT) infection includes common cold, acute rhinitis, tonsillitis, sinusitis, and Lower respiratory tract (LRT) infections include bronchiolitis, pneumonia, trachea, bronchial tubes. The most common lower respiratory infections like bronchitis and pneumonia tends to more severe than upper respiratory infections like common cold.

Exposure to air pollution is one of the main worst causes of affecting human health which is closely related to respiratory diseases including COPD. Long-time exposure to outside pollution places (at work place) and air pollution with high concentration of pollutants leads to increase COPD morbidity and Asthma. Air pollution also depends on sources and components of pollutants varied with season, time, countries and solid fuels.

Pediatric pulmonology is a major risk factor for children death. It is based on diagnosis, treatment and accomplishes children from birth to teenage with breathing and lung diseases. Most frequently patients go to pediatric pulmonologists if their child wheezing is asthma or other problems related to breathing. There are some other critical conditions like Apnea- child with apnea will stop breathing. Technology- some child requires oxygen or respirator to help them to breathe. Cystic Fibrosis- it is an inherited condition that cause an excessive buildup of mucus in the lungs.

Depression and anxiety are high in patients with COPD compared to normal people. COPD patients will have more risk of developing depression. Compared to non-comorbidities patients, COPD patients will have three or more comorbidities are likely to be hospitalized frequently and even may die prematurely. Dyspnea is a highest contributing component to anxiety. Symptoms like behavioral, social and biological factors, dysthymias (chronic depression) are the most related disorder of mental-health.

Allergic Asthma is caused by an allergic reaction also called as allergy-induced asthma. Asthma occurs if any individual had a trouble in breathing during allergy season. Asthma allergy is shown in kids with childhood compared to adults. Allergic asthma starts feeling symptoms after inhaling an allergen (pollen), sneezing fits and watery eyes. It is a chronic disease noticed by spams of bronchi due to narrowed and inflamed airways in lungs.

Respiratory failure happens when respiratory system is unable to remove enough carbon dioxide from blood and also when respiratory system can’t take enough oxygen. Respiratory failure may be acute or chronic. Acute respiratory failure is a short term conditions occurs suddenly and is treated very typically in medical emergency. Whereas, chronic respiratory failure is an ongoing condition, it gradually decreases and required long term treatment. Complications like heart problems, lung cancer, high blood pressure in lung arteries, respiratory infections and depression occurs due to this respiratory failure in COPD patients.

Respiratory diseases affected on the nose, sinuses, nasal passages, larynx, throat, trachea (windpipe), diaphragm, lungs, chest wall, pulmonary circulation (circulation of the blood through the lungs) and the ventilator control system in the brain. Respiratory medicine has been a hospital-based specialty. Respiratory and Sleep Medicine is supplied with the advanced technology and represents the best equipment of doctors to control and treat a wide array of respiratory and sleep disorders.

Self-management in COPD, centering on an action plan for the increased and enhanced communication between the patient and health care providers, makes good clinical sense. A basic feature of COPD is that symptoms may change regularly due to exacerbations of disease and disease progression. The use of COPD action plans in COPD self-management arbitration may support patients to respond to changing symptoms, and thereby make significant decisions regarding their self-management. Tobacco smoking is the main cause of COPD. So, best way to prevent COPD is to avoid smoking or to quit smoking. Regularly clean your hands with soap and warm water at least for 3 minutes. Mainly, before taking medications, preparing food, eating and after coughing or sneezing, using the bathroom, touching soiled linens or clothes, and after you've been around someone with a cold or the flu as well as after you are surrounded by people.

COPD can help you in upgrading your life with good management of the disease. Always make sure you talk with your healthcare provider about your health concerns. Try these types of tips for managing COPD: Give up smoking, Take your medications correctly, Eat right and exercise, Retrain your breathing ,Get rest, Use oxygen appropriately, Avoid infections, Healthy lifestyle changes, Learn techniques to bring up mucus, Make and use an action plan.

The best prevention to avoid developing COPD is avoiding tobacco smoking also avoid if any area is having poor air quality (air that exposure to dust particles, smoke, gases and fume). Marinating some daily precautions can also reduce COPD like, Hand wash- Wash hands very often with soap and warm water before preparing food, eating and taking medicine. Environment- keep surroundings clean, avoid air pollution, stop visiting construction sites and try to stay from large crowds. Diet- Eat protein food and try to take balanced diet and drink plenty of fluids and avoid taking cool liquids (drinks, juices, cooling water)
