Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a disease characterized by airflow limitation that is not fully reversible. Air flow limitation is usually progressive and associated with an inflammatory response in the lungs stimulated by irritants. Common cause of COPD is cigarette smoking, air pollution, allergens and infections that may also act as irritants.
