Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a progressive lung disease characterised by narrowing of the airways and reduced lung volume. This condition is commonly caused by smoking or other lung irritants, and includes diagnoses such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis. The data presented here relate to patients who stayed one or more nights for COPD without and with complications.
