Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
COPD is a type of lung inflammation that occurs in the long term that causes interference with respiratory conditions. What is generally experienced is cell changes in the lungs and respiratory tract where this occurs due to long-term exposure to smoke or cigarettes resulting in thickening of the cell wall causing narrowing of the respiratory tract so that various symptoms such as tightness, coughing persist
Broadly speaking, it will be divided into 2 types, viz
Chronic bronchitis or blue bloater where the symptoms experienced are more productive coughs with thick phlegm, cyanosis is sometimes accompanied by weight gain. This can usually lead to heart conditions in the long run
Emphysema is kolasp from the smallest apru with more minimal cough symptoms, but more dominant is shortness of breath, does not appear accompanied by blue but the body will look thin until you can see the bone and the movement of the breath muscles.
To distinguish this you should check your condition to the doctor, besides that the most important thing is to be treated properly and optimally. This is to prevent recurrence because the danger is that if an acute attack occurs from COPD, breathing will usually be very difficult and breathing sounds can even be heard without using a stethoscope if you experience this should be immediately taken to the hospital for immediate further treatment.
