The World Market for Respiratory Equipment
Respiratory diseases are among the most common ailments across the world. Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are the major causes of mortality rates among children and elderly. Currently, about 300 million people suffer from asthma—the number only expected to rise over next few years—and about 14.2 million people suffer from COPD.
