Chronic lower respiratory diseases (CLRDs)—defined by the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD) as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis, and asthma (1, 2)—are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and globally (2–4).Of the CLRDs, COPD, which is defined by airflow limitation that does not Cited by: The TCRS cohort provides a unique vehicle through which we can now address 3 specific aims: identify host and environmental factors in early life that predict lung function deficits, persistence of asthma, and development of airflow limitation in mid-adult life; 2.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a type of obstructive lung disease characterized by long-term breathing problems and poor airflow. The main symptoms include shortness of breath and cough with sputum production.

COPD is a progressive disease, meaning it typically worsens over time. Eventually, everyday activities such as walking or getting dressed become cations: Acute exacerbation of.

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways characterized by reversible airflow obstruction. 1 For many asthma patients, however, airway obstruction fails to completely reverse following treatment.

Numerous airway structural changes have been identified in both the central and peripheral airways (eg, increased airway smooth-muscle mass, mucous gland and goblet-cell hyperplasia, and Cited by: Airflow limitation is a characteristic feature of both asthma and COPD.

In asthma, the airflow limitation is generally reversible either spontaneously or with treatment. In COPD, in contrast, there may be some degree of reversibility, but expiratory airflow limitation, to some extent, is always present.
