The COPD and Asthma anatomical chart compares the differences between the two respiratory diseases. It provides a detailed overview for each one and also highlights the causes, symptoms, diagnosis markers and common treatments.
What are Anatomical Charts
Anatomical charts are typically used in medical offices and clinics to aid in patient education and promote awareness for different medical issues. These charts and posters also help physicians and healthcare professionals explain complex medical concepts much more effectively.
COPD and Asthma Explained
The COPD and Asthma poster starts with explanations of each respiratory issue. These two ailments can appear to have similar symptoms to the casual observer since patients suffering from either condition experience difficulty with breathing and regular bouts of coughing.
The left side is dedicated to discussing Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or COPD and provides an overview of causes and treatments. It thoroughly discusses the two respiratory diseases that are often associated with COPD, Emphysema and Chronic Bronchitis. The common signs and symptoms are discussed for each respiratory condition, followed by a thorough overview and a discussion of the common causes.
The right side features a detailed explanation of asthma, and describes the signs and symptoms of an asthma attack. The second half lists the common causes of asthma and prescribed treatments, which includes traditional medicine and alternative treatments.
Comparing Diagnostic Markers
On the bottom of the COPD and Asthma anatomical chart is a comparison chart with a lavender background. It conveniently lists all the diagnostic markers for the two respiratory ailments which help to further explain the differences between them. Simply looking at this comparison chart can greatly improve one’s understanding of either disease.
One of the key differences between the two is the typical age at which they occur. The signs and symptoms of COPD often become evident in patients over 40 years old after prolonged exposure to cigarette smoke and other pollutants. On the other hand, patients who suffer from asthma typically begin showing symptoms at a very early age. There is also no direct correlation between smoking and asthma. The development of asthma is often attributed to genetics and allergens.
Asthma attacks are considered episodic and brought about when a patient experiences an allergic reaction or engages in long periods of physical exertion. COPD patients, however, can begin to experience shortness of breath with any sort of physical exertion especially when the condition is in its advanced stages.
There are at least half a dozen other diagnostic markers listed on the chart that can be used to tell the difference between COPD and asthma.
Detailed Anatomical Illustrations
Anatomical charts are not complete without proper illustrations. The COPD and Asthma poster features a detailed view of the human respiratory system right in the middle with all the important internal parts clearly labelled.
Enlarged views and cross sections are also included with every discussion of each respiratory ailment to make understanding the causes and pathologies much easier.

- Detailed overview of respiratory system
