COPD are a group of lung diseases that result when tissue inflammation makes the lungs unable to inflate and deflate properly. Two major diseases that fall into the category of COPD are emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Emphysema affects the air sacs in your lungs, as well as the walls between them. They become damaged and are less elastic. Chronic bronchitis makes the lining of your airways irritated, which causes the lining to swell and make mucus.
Most people with COPD have both emphysema and chronic bronchitis, but how severe each type is can be different from person to person.
