Asthma and COPD

Asthma may be a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways .The chronic inflammation is related to airway hyper responsiveness that results in recurrent episodes of wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness and coughing, particularly at night or in early morning. These episodes are usually related to widespread, but variable, airflow obstruction within lung that's often reversible either spontaneously or with the treatment. Asthma may be a serious global ill health with an estimated 300 million affected individuals. People of all ages are affected by this illness that, when uncontrolled, can place severe limits on daily life and is sometimes fatal. Clinical manifestations of asthma are often controlled with appropriate treatment. COPD is one of the major causes of chronic morbidity and mortality worldwide. Many people suffer from this disease for years and die prematurely from its complications. COPD is that the fourth leading explanation for death within the world, and further increases in its prevalence and mortality are often predicted within the coming decades. COPD is a pulmonary disease with some significant extra pulmonary effects that may contribute to the severity in individual patient. Its pulmonary component is characterized by airflow limitation that's not fully reversible. Cigarette smoking is the most commonly encountered risk factor for COPD, although in many countries, air pollution resulting from the burning of wood and other biomasses fuels has also been identified as a COPD risk factor.
