Difference between asthma and emphysema
« on: December 29, 2013, 03:55:15 PM »

Asthma and emphysema are two
entirely different diseases with some
symptoms in common. Asthma is a
spastic and inflammatory disease of
the airways that causes reversible
obstruction of the bronchial tubes. It
usually responds to treatment.

Emphysema is a disease of the lung
tissue, especially the alveoli (air sacs)
at the end of the bronchial tubes.
Emphysema results from destruction
of these alveoli. This process is not
reversible and responds less well to
medical treatment. Emphysema is
slowly progressive; you will get short
of breath and become more disabled
as time goes on. Eventually you may
require continuous concentrated
oxygen to be comfortable. This
irreversible disease (and other
obstructive lung diseases such as
chronic bronchitis) is often referred
to as chronic obstructive pulmonary
disease (COPD).
