How doesCOPD differ from Asthma?

Although COPD and asthma have similar characteristics such as the signs of coughing and wheezing, they are two distinct conditions in terms of disease onset, frequency of symptoms and reversibility of airway obstruction.

The onset of asthma typically occurs during childhood or adolescence. COPD most often develops in smokers and former smokers who are in mid-40s.
Exacerbations of asthma -characterized by recurrent wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness and cough-often have identifiable triggers such as allergens, cold air or exercise. However exacerbations in COPD are commonly caused by respiratory infections,
With treatment, asthma patients have near- normal lung function and are symptom -free between exacerbations. Airflow obstruction in COPD sufferers is only partly reversible with smoking cessation and bronchodilator use.
