COPD vs emphysema

April 16, 2022
Emphysema is a progressive lung illness caused by over-inflation of the alveoli (air sacs in the lungs), whereas COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is a catch-all term for a variety of lung diseases, including emphysema. The signs and symptoms of COPD and emphysema are identical because it is a late stage of the disease. COPD signs and symptoms are already present if you have emphysema, albeit they will be less severe in the early stages of COPD since tissue deterioration is low.Be vibrant with Salt Therapy for COPD at Saltworld.
