Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is an increasingly significant cause of morbidity, disability, and mortality around the world. According to the World Health Organization, COPD is the third leading cause of death globally. In 2019, it was estimated that 391.9 million individuals 30-79 years of age were living with COPD, and 3.23 million deaths were attributed to the disease. The prevalence of COPD is expected to continue to increase as a result of the aging population, urbanization, and other risk factors. Treatment is essential to manage symptoms, improve quality of life, and reduce the risk for exacerbations.
