Yes, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is a serious and progressive lung disease that can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life. It is a group of lung diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing difficulties, including emphysema and chronic bronchitis. COPD can worsen over time, leading to chronic respiratory failure, pulmonary hypertension, and other complications. It is also one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, causing around 3 million deaths each year. Early diagnosis and proper management can help improve symptoms, slow disease progression, and reduce the risk of complications.
