Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the name for a collection of lung diseases including chronic bronchitis, emphysema and chronic obstructive airways disease. People with COPD have trouble breathing in and out; this is referred to as airflow obstruction. These breathing difficulties are caused by long-term damage to the lungs, usually because of smoking. Much like our asthma clinics, we also operate regular COPD clinics to diagnose and review patients.
