    Question Emphysema and COPD

    What is the difference between COPD as opposed to Emphysema? Is COPD worst than Emphysema?

    Re: Emphysema and COPD

    COPD is a category of chronic lung diseases that includes emphysema among others. People sometimes use the terms interchangeably but technically they are not one and the same.

    Emphysema is a specific disease. COPD is a general term for any of a group of chronic lung diseases.
