Abstract

Chronic obstructive pulmonary illnesses is among the most frequent noncommunicable illnesses, and it is currently the third biggest cause of mortality globally. Our study sought to determine the prevalence of COPD. its associated risk factors, causes, and management in Saudi Arabia.  The PubMed database and EBSCO Information Services were utilised to pick articles. In our review, we used all related papers to our issue as well as additional publications. Other papers that were unrelated to this field were not considered. The data was extracted in a specified format, which the group members examined. In Saudi Arabia, the prevalence estimated of COPD is relatively high, moreover, it increases over time. The high prevalence of smoking and increased age were reported to be the most common effective risk factors of COPD in the Saudi population. COPD is generally recognised as a preventable and potentially treated condition if discovered early. Avoiding exposure to hazardous particles, particularly smoking, can help to keep the condition from progressing to a clinically relevant level.
