Abstract

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major public health problem in the United States and throughout the world with a global prevalence estimated at 9.3 per 1000 males and 7.3 per 1000 females (all ages). (Vital and Health Statistics, 1996; Murray and Lopez, 1997). COPD was ranked as the sixth most common cause of death worldwide in 1990, and the Global Burden of Disease Study predicted that it would become the third most common cause by 2020 (Lopez and Murray, 1998).
