Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a lung disease that causes difficulty breathing and is typically caused by smoking. Chronic bronchitis and emphysema are the two conditions associated with COPD and most people have a combination of both conditions.
Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the lungs. It makes breathing difficult and brings on attacks of coughing, wheezing, tightness in the chest and shortness of breath.
Chronic bronchitis, which is a form of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), is an ongoing inflammation of the airways leading to the lungs (bronchi). It is characterized by a cough, mucus production, shortness of breath, and wheezing that persist for longer than three months.
Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP)
Pneumonia is a respiratory condition caused by lung infection. Community-Acquired Pneumonia refers to the occurrence of pneumonia in people who have not recently been in a healthcare facility, hospital, or rehabilitation center. Symptoms include fever, chills, shortness of breath, cough with mucus, headache, and fatigue.
