Running Head: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Haywood Community College 1 Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease 2 Introduction

 

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the third leading cause of death in the

 

United States. Did you know that a person in the US dies every four minutes due to COPD.

 

Millions of people are diagnosed with COPD; with others not realizing that they even have this

 

disease. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease affects the lungs.

 

The lungs are an organ that is located within the thorax. They contain the elastic sacs

 

(alveoli) where the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide takes place. Lungs are covered by a

 

thin tissue layer (pleura). Small blood vessel, called capillaries, run through the walls of the

 

alveoli. When air reaches the alveoli, oxygen passes through the alveoli walls and into the

 

bloodstream. Carbon dioxide then moves from the capillaries into the alveoli and gas exchange

 

takes place. When you breathe in (inspire), each alveolus fills up with oxygen. When you

 

breathe out (expire), air sacs deflate and moves air out.

 

In Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, less air is able to flow in and out of the

 

airways. This may be due to damaged walls between airs sacs, airways that are thick and

 

inflamed, or an excess more mucus. It is a progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe. It is

 

common in people of all ages, but most common with people who are over 40 years of age and in

 

men. This disorder results an inadequate supply of oxygen into the body?s tissues, and patients

 

with the disease rarely realize it. They may notice difficulty doing simple activities, such as

 

working or gardening. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of COPD. Long term exposure to

 

air pollution, chemical fumes, or dust may also contribute to COPD. 2 Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease 3

 

Symptoms COPD has many symptoms due to inadequate supply of oxygen into the body?s tissue. A

 

symptom is exercise intolerance, such as difficulty breathing with physical exercise. The lungs

 

are not able to supply an adequate amount of oxygen into the body to support such activities

 

(Nazir & Erbland, 2009).

 

Another symptom is wheezing. Wheezing can be described as a high pitch sound that is

 

made while breathing. When a person breathes through a narrow airway, the turbulence results in

 

vibration of the airway walls, which produces the sound of wheezing. This occurs mostly during

 

expiration, but sometimes it can occur during inspiration.

 

COPD patients are affected more during cold winter months. Cold air causes the bronchi

 

to close, thereby reducing the amount of oxygen supplied into the body. This is sometimes

 

associated with pain in the chest when breathing. This problem can become serious when it

 

persists, and the patients are advised to stay warm to prevent worsening.

 

Frequent coughs can also be experienced in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary

 

Disease. Their cough experiences a sore throat when phlegm, which in most cases never, seems

 

to go away. The patients can also experience a sore throat when coughing. Phlegm is a thick

 

substance that is secreted by mucus membranes of the respiratory passages (Littner, 2011).

 

COPD can also cause headaches, which are sometimes accompanied by a fever. This

 

causes discomfort in patients with the disease, and may cause them to feel depresses. The fever

 

can be very serious if not treated at its earlier stages. Patients may also experience colds or the

 

flu more than usual. Severe COPD can also cause symptoms such as weight loss, lower muscle

 

stamina, and swelling in your ankles, feet, or legs.

Treatment The most important step you can take to treat COPD is to quit smoking if you smoke. The

 

sputum or the phlegm experienced when these patients cough can block the patient?s lungs. This

 

mucus needs to be made less thick to avoid blockage of the bronchi. These patients may be

 

prescribed a mucolytic medication. This medicine makes the sputum less sticky and thick easier

 

to cough up. This lessens the congestion in the chest and pain that may develop due to such

 

obstruction. The drugs are taken regularly and are mostly prescribed for patients with long term

 

cough problems (Littner, 2011). Doctors will sometimes prescribe an inhaler and breathing

 

treatments to help the patients as well.

 

Oxygen Therapy can help you breathe easier if you have severe COPD and low levels of

 

oxygen. With this therapy, oxygen is delivered via nasal prongs or a mask. Surgery may benefit

 

some people; it is usually the last resort for people who have not improved from taking

 

medications. Lung transplant is another option for people with severe COPD. Surgeons remove

 

the damaged lung tissue and replace it with a healthy lung from a donor.

 

Chest pain can lessen by drinking warm water mixed with honey or lemon. This will

 

relieve sore throat caused by coughing. Staying hydrated can also help with opening the airways

 

to allow mucus to flow. It is important for patients to get plenty of rest. This involves elevating

 

the patients head with pillows while they are sleeping to facilitate easier breathing. Patients that

 

experience headaches can take painkillers, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, to reduce discomfort.

 

These may also treat fevers and lessen chest discomfort pain. (Pauwels et al 2012). 4 Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease 5

 

Conclusion Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease can be easily treated at mild stages, but if left to

 

persist for a longer time may require more involved and intricate treatment modalities. The

 

patients should always see their doctors for earliest treatment. These doctors will advise them

 

promptly on what remedies they should take to avoid worsening of the condition. Educational

 

training can also be conducted to make the patients cognizant of the signs and symptoms of the

 

disease. This can be made available local in support groups. The disease should be controlled at

 

its earliest stages to avoid complications that can make it difficult to treat in future (Pauwels et

 

al, 2012). 5 Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease 6 References
