CORP?: I am not sure about your abbreviation. (Corp). Cor pulmonale is a type of heart failure usually caused by high blood pressure or long term lung disease. COPD is chronic obstructive lung disease and is usually related to smoking or long term exposure to fumes. Asthma can be a part of COPD. If this is not what you were looking for please restate the question.
