Types of COPD

People with COPD experience difficulty in breathing and shortness of breath. The two principle infections that fall under the extent of COPD are: Chronic bronchitis, which involves a long-term cough with mucus and it is a long-term inflammation of the bronchi, which results in increased production of mucus, as well as other changes. These changes may result in breathing problems, frequent infections, cough, and disability. Emphysema, which involves damage to the lungs over time. Emphysema is a chronic lung condition in which alveoli may be: destroyed, narrowed, collapsed, stretched, and over-inflated. This can cause a reduction in respiratory capacity and breathlessness. Harm to the air sacs is irreversible and brings about permanent "holes" in the lung tissue.
