Revised edition by new columnist Dr. Keith Roach!
Emphysema is a disease which attacks the alveoli, the air sacs within the lungs. It is commonly found together with another respiratory disease, chronic bronchitis. Together the two of them are known as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD. Fourteen million Americans suffer from COPD. The condition is second only to heart disease as the prime cause of disability. It is the fourth most common cause of death in the United States. The purpose of this pamphlet is to explain the "twin diseases" which make up COPD, as well as to offer suggestions for prevention and treatment.
