COPD, also known as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or Chronic Obstructive Airways Disease (COAD), is a lung condition that consists of heavy sputum production (chronic bronchitis) and destruction of lung tissue (emphysema). Most often caused by long term exposure to cigarette smoke, COPD is a common cause of shortness of breath in older patients - often made worse by infections and/or exposure to air pollution.
