COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

COPD changes



I just had a chest xray. It read COPD changes are present with hyperlucency and hyperinflation of the lungs. No consolidation, effusions. No evidence of pulmonar edema. Normal mediastinum and heart size.

No change compared to 5/12/2008.

I don`t smoke, ect. What does the first sentence mean?
