As per available reports about 13 Relevant journals,15 Conferences,12 Workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to breathing disorder and about 312 articles are being published on chronic obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), also known as chronic obstructive lung disease (COLD), and chronic obstructive airway disease (COAD), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the name for a collection of lung diseases including chronic bronchitis, emphysema and chronic obstructive airways disease. Chronic bronchitis, which involves a long-term cough with mucus, Chronic bronchitis is an inflammation of the lining of your bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from your lungs Emphysema, which involves damage to the lungs over time. Emphysema occurs when the air sacs (alveoli) at the end of the smallest air passages (bronchioles) in the lungs are gradually destroyed. People with COPD have difficulties breathing, primarily due to the narrowing of their airways, this is called airflow obstruction. Damage to your lungs from COPD can't be reversed, but treatment can help control symptoms and minimize further damage.

Scope and Importance:
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: COPD is the fifth commonest cause of death in England and Wales, accounting for nearly 28,000 deaths each year and Britain has one of the highest death rates from COPD in the European Union. It is estimated that there are about 600,000 patients in the UK with diagnosed COPD and there may be as many again who remain undiagnosed. COPD patients are frequent users of primary and secondary care services with an estimate of one in eight hospital admissions being due to COPD. Consultation rates in general practice rise with age from 417 in those aged 45–64 per 10,000 populations per year to 1032 in those aged 75–84 per year per 10,000 populations (BTS, 1997). COPD results in an estimated 27 million lost working days per year.
Chronic bronchitis, which involves a long-term cough with mucus, Chronic bronchitis is an inflammation of the lining of your bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from your lungs • Emphysema, which involves damage to the lungs over time. Emphysema occurs when the air sacs (alveoli) at the end of the smallest air passages (bronchioles) in the lungs are gradually destroyed. People with COPD have difficulties breathing, primarily due to the narrowing of their airways, this is called airflow obstruction. Damage to your lungs from COPD can't be reversed, but treatment can help control symptoms and minimize further damage.
Typical symptoms of COPD include:
• increasing breathlessness when active
• a persistent cough with phlegm
• frequent chest infections
• Many respiratory infections
• Trouble catching one's breath
Causes and risk factors of COPD: cigarette smoking – the most significant risk factor. Around 20 to 25 per cent of smokers will develop COPD. Ex-smokers remain at risk and should be aware of symptoms of breathlessness long-term exposure to lung irritants – such as chemical vapors or dust from grain or wood. Severe air pollution can make COPD worse in smoker’s genes – a genetic disorder known as alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency can trigger emphysema, even if no other risk factors are present. Diagnosis: It is important that COPD is diagnosed as early as possible so treatment can be used to try to slow down the deterioration of your lungs. You should see your GP if you have any of the symptoms mentioned above.
COPD is usually diagnosed after a consultation with your doctor, which may be followed by breathing tests. Treatment: There is no cure for COPD. But there are many things you can do to relieve symptoms and keep the disease from getting worse. If you smoke, now is the time to quit. This is the best way to slow lung damage.
Medicines used to treat COPD include:
• Inhalers (bronchodilators) to help open the airways
• Inhaled or oral steroids to reduce lung inflammation
• Anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce swelling in the airways
In severe cases or during flare-ups, you may need to receive: • Steroids by mouth or through a vein (intravenously)
• Bronchodilators through a nebulizer
• Oxygen therapy
• Assistance during breathing from a machine (through a mask, BiPAP, or endotracheal tube)
Your doctor may prescribe antibiotics during symptom flare-ups, because infections can make COPD worse. You may need oxygen therapy at home if you have a low level of oxygen in your blood.
The United Kingdom respiratory care market, Based on anatomical features, the respiratory system is segmented into upper respiratory tract and lower respiratory tract. The upper respiratory tract comprises pharynx, larynx, and nasal passages, while the lower respiratory tract includes trachea, lungs, and bronchi. Respiratory disease is a medical condition that affects the structure and organs associated with respiration or breathing. Equipment used to detect pulmonary abnormalities hold immense potential due to increasing prevalence of various respiratory diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, and pneumonia. Moreover, growing geriatric population and technological advancements would drive the global respiratory disease testing market. However, low adoption rate of digital radiography and portable spirometers are projected to hold back the growth of respiratory disease testing market from 2014 to 2022. The global respiratory disease testing market was valued at USD 2,326.5 million in 2013 and is estimated to reach USD 3,143.3 million in 2022, expanding at a CAGR of 3.4% from 2014 to 2022. For instance, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published in 2012 that around 18.7 million adults in the U.K. were suffering from asthma. The American Lung Association states that COPD is the third leading cause of death in the U.K.
