COPD – Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

A widespread chronic condition

COPD is the third-leading cause of death in the United States, affecting almost 16 million Americans. This chronic condition is characterized by breathing problems, including shortness of breath and coughing. 

Tobacco smoke is one of the largest contributors to the development of COPD, but genetics, exposure to air pollution and other factors play a role.

An under-diagnosed and expensive condition

Over more than 50% of adults with COPD didn’t know that they had it, so its likely that more than 16 million Americans have COPD. Risk factors for COPD include:

  • Tobacco smoke exposure
  • Smokers with asthma
  • Occupational exposure to dust and chemicals, or fumes from burning fuel
  • Age
  • Genetics
