The Respiratory System

The Respiratory System is one of the major systems of the human body, that helps sustain life and can be effected by a disease COPD. The COPD is the intersection of three related conditions chronic bronchitis, chronic asthma and emphysema(Beta Live Science). The interesting fact connects back to my thesis because the disease COPD can be progressive to the respiratory system that will make it difficult for your breathing.


The disease COPD is a progressive disease that makes it hard for you to breathe, some of the symptoms of the disease are: shortness of breath, wheezing, chest tightness, having to clear your throat first thing in the morning due the excess mucus in your lungs. Treatments that can help you with COPD is that you can use bronchodilators that relaxes the muscles around your airways that makes breathing easier, or surgery if the COPD haven’t improved from taking medications.
