COPD stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Emphysema, damaged or enlarged air sacs, and chronic bronchitis, inflammation of the bronchial tube lining, are the two most common conditions that contribute to COPD. Asthma is the narrowing and swelling of the airways, which produces extra mucus.  These breathing related issues become increasingly common among the elderly as the respiratory muscles weaken with age. Upon completion of the training, participants should be able to understand the disease process, signs and symptoms, diagnostic tests, misconceptions, treatment, therapy, and prognosis.
