Understanding COPD


COPD is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
, which is a progressive lung disease developed from emphysema, chronic bronchitis, refractory asthma and forms of bronchiectasis.

Symptoms Include:

At Orianna Health Systems, many of our centers have a robust Respiratory and Pulmonary Program to help care for and manage pulmonary diseases such as COPD. Our centers apply a multi-disciplinary approach to reduce symptoms, increase participation in physical and social activities, and, if possible, discharge patients to their homes or to a lower level of care.
