    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Asthma: It is a chronic (long-term) condition in which the airways become swollen and narrowed due to inflammation. It also results in increased production of mucus (thick fluid secreted by respiratory tissues) in the airways. Symptoms include breathing difficulty, coughing, and wheezing (a whistling sound).

    Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): It is a chronic inflammation that occurs due to a group of conditions such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis and refractory or recurrent asthma. Emphysema is a condition in which alveoli (air sacs) get damaged leading to shortness of breath. Chronic bronchitis is a condition in which the bronchus (passage of airway that conducts air) becomes inflamed leading to increased sputum production.
