Chronic Lower Respiratory Diseases

Diseases that affect the lungs are called Chronic Lower Respiratory Diseases. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the deadliest out of these diseases. COPD makes it hard for a person to breathe. The two main illnesses are Emphysema and Chronic bronchitis.

  • Emphysema – damaged air sacs in lungs restricts oxygen necessary to breathe normally.
  • Chronic Bronchitis – red and swollen airways in the lungs lining. Airways narrow and clog with mucus over time. Mucus cannot be cleared.

The main cause of COPD is cigarette smoking. Lung cancer is associated with emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Lung damage caused by COPD can’t be cured. However, it can be slowed down if it’s found early enough. COPD symptoms include: shortness of breath, persistent cough, and tightness of chest. A doctor can administer a COPD test. COPD can be prevented by not smoking, avoiding secondhand smoke, and avoiding irritants such as air pollution and chemical fumes.
