About COPD Course October 2020
COPD is a major global health problem, now affecting over 10% of people over 45 years and being the third most common cause of mortality in high-income countries. COPD exacerbations are also one of the common causes for hospital admissions. While the main cause of COPD is smoking in Western countries, in developing countries COPD is commonly seen in non-smokers and is caused by the exposure to biomass fuel smoke in homes.
