Emphysema

Emphysema is a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. There is difficulty in breathing due to the narrowing of the airways, persistent productive cough, breathlessness even with minimal effort and increased frequency of respiratory infections. Smoking is the primary cause of emphysema and is prevalent in age groups from 35 to 50 years old. Treatment is focused on improving breathing and cessation of smoking.
