The term COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is an umbrella term for diseases such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis. COPD is characterised by obstruction to airflow that is not fully reversible. It is frequently accompanied by dyspnoea (shortness of breath) and the lungs are easily inflamed when in contact with certain particles or gases. Oxygen therapy brings relief to patients who suffer from a severe stage of COPD, whose breathlessness is caused by a lack of oxygen in the blood known as hypoxia.
