World Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Day

Every year on November 17, the world celebrates World Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Day. The celebration of the day was implemented by the Global Initiative to fight against this disease.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a chronic disease characterized by constant restriction of air in the respiratory tract (bronchial asthma). The main cause of COPD is tobacco smoke, and the disease often appears due to air pollution (in industrialized countries); the presence of chemical fumes, dust and smoke at workplaces; infections; low standard of living. Less often, COPD occurs due to genetics, long-term asthma, underdevelopment of the lungs in children, and hypersensitivity of the respiratory tract.

  • Sad predictions: by 2030, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease will become the third cause of death on the planet. Therefore, it is extremely important to conduct examinations on time and try to lead a healthy lifestyle.
