COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
Trivial Pulmonary Insufficiency
I would like to know, in detail, what TPI is, what causes it, how it can be treated, what complications can result from TPI, and how to treat it.
Trivial pulmonary insufficiency is not a standard medical term. It suggests some mild abnormality of lung function.
