More than 80% of these deaths occurred in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). In 2004-12, people who were first diagnosed with COPD were mostly older than 40, and the chances of developing the condition increased as people aged. This on-demand virtual library presents the most recent GOLD strategies in the diagnosis, management and treatment of patients with COPD. In terms of diagnosed cases, this makes COPD the second most common lung disease in the UK, after asthma.
The number of people who have ever been diagnosed with COPD has increased by 27% in the last decade, from less than 1,600 to nearly 2,000 per 100,000. With the help of GIS technology, a global COPD prevalence map has been obtained that includes areas without real data. Figures for 2004-12 show that the less well off you are, the more likely you are to have been diagnosed with COPD at some point in your life. Orange tones, indicative of a prevalence of COPD between 16 and 20%, covered a large part of Europe and Russia; large regions of central and western Asia, northeastern China and the Malaysian archipelago of Southeast Asia.
This year's theme seeks to emphasize that the burden of COPD has not disappeared, even during COVID: COPD remains one of the leading causes of death worldwide. These factors may be associated with different social habits, languages, inbreeding, nutrition, smoking, exposure to occupational and environmental pollutants, and the quality of public health services and accessibility to care providers that can modify the prevalence of COPD. Because of its ability to present complex data in a visually appealing manner, GIS is a powerful epidemiological tool for transmitting the current and future epidemiology of COPD and other respiratory diseases. The counties with the highest model-based estimates of COPD prevalence were clustered along the Ohio and Lower Mississippi rivers In the following 5 chapters, you'll quickly find the 34 most important statistics related to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) in the U.
