About COPD

This Disease is especially formed by the non-mycrobial inflammation of airways which is caused by smoking and inhalation of other harmful gas particles. This kind of inflammation arises at the age of 40 and above by constriction of airways as a result of destruction of small air chambers in the lungs (amphysema)

Constriction of airways and destruction of alvaoles – air vesicules which are the smallest unit of lungs; progresses gradually. Airways which are flexible like a baloon and can expand and constrict consecutively loses that feature.
