Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease prognostic diagnosis utilizing fuzzy classifier proficient approach
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic, progressive disease of the lower respiratory tract. The hallmark of the disease is difficult breathing that slowly gets worse over time. COPD is usually caused by smoking, inhalation of irritants (pollutants, chemical fumes and dust)
into the lungs, family history and aging. Symptoms of COPD are characterized by chronic coughing, shortness of breadth, wheezing, sputum, cyanosis, blue lip, blue skin, blue nail and insomnia. In this paper, the traditional procedure of the medical diagnosis of COPD employed by physicians was expressed using Fuzzy classifier. The proposed expert system eliminates uncertainty and
inaccuracies associated with diagnosis of COPD.
