COPD is currently the fourth leading cause of death in the world1 but is projected to be the 3rd leading cause of death by /5(1). Alex D. Hakim, Michael R. Littner, in Therapy in Sleep Medicine, Chronic pulmonary disease including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, interstitial lung disease, and cystic fibrosis may reduce the quality of sleep as a result of diminished pulmonary function, respiratory symptoms such as shortness of breath, and nocturnal hypoxemia.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a disease entity that results in long-term irreversible changes in pulmonary function that follow a pattern of obstructive lung two prototypical pathologies that result in COPD are emphysema and chronic bronchitis which typically co-exist within a single patient.
