• Animated Atlas of COPD

The Animated Atlas of COPD is a collection of 40 animated videos and around 80 images that clearly accentuate the physiological changes that occur in disease development, inductive agents and elucidate the immune response with disease progression. These animated videos and images provide understanding of the diagnosis and basis for therapeutic techniques in the management of COPD.
