2 types: Maybe more but one is chronic obstructive that you see in emphysema (COPD) and another type is rare but is where a physical obstruction such as a tumor is blocking the airway. Most chronic obstr is due to genetic or smoking related or other environmental factors that break down good lung tissue and replace it with scar tissue.

Blockage: Anything that creates a blockage of the intestinal tract. You may think of the intestinal tract (stomach, small bowel, large bowel) as somewhat akin to a garden hose. If you kink the garden hose, or twist it, or block it inside, you have created an "obstruction". Most obstructions are a results of previous surgery and most of these resolve with non-operative management.
