Access from EThOS:
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a treatable and preventable disease state, characterised by progressive airflow limitation that is not fully reversible. Although primarily a disease that affects the airways, COPD is increasingly recognised as a systemic disease. It is a current and growing cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide, with the World Health Organization (WHO) projecting that total deaths attributed to COPD will increase by more than 30% in the next 10 years, making it the third major cause of death worldwide.
