What Is Asthma?

Asthma is a chronic disease of the airways or breathing tubes caused by inflammation, swelling, constriction, and excess mucus production. As the airways narrow and become clogged, some symptoms of asthma may occur.

What Is COPD?

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, more commonly known as COPD, is comprised of two main conditions emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Many people who have COPD have both emphysema and chronic bronchitis.
