    Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, is a long-term lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. The disease affects millions of Americans and is the third leading cause of disease-related death in the U.S. The good news is COPD is often preventable and treatable. About the Journal. Index Copernicus Value () Journal of Pulmonary & Respiratory Medicine is a peer reviewed medical journal that focus on a wide range of areas in this field including pulmonary, respiratory diseases related to respiratory system and treatment methods and creates a platform for the authors to make their contribution towards the journal .

      Restrictive lung disease is a class of lung disease that prevents the lungs from expanding fully, including conditions such as pneumonia, lung cancer, and systemic lupus. Many restrictive lung Author: Jennifer Huizen.   Respiratory diseases can affect any part of the respiratory system, from the upper respiratory tract to the bronchi and down into the alveoli. Diseases of the respiratory system are common.

    After publishing the first Companion for the Practice of Medicine, a study of respiratory tract disease seemed to be a logical next step. Respiratory disease is well known to every medical student and intern, often from own experience. In medical practice, airway diseases are among the most commonly encountered. The book deals first with the anatomy, function and clinical examination of the respiratory system, followed by discussion of diagnostic tests and procedures. The clinical section is focused around the cardinal presenting manifestations of equine respiratory disease: coughing, nasal discharge, increased breathing efforts, respiratory noise.

Respiratory Function of the Upper Airway (Lung Biology in Health and Disease): Medicine & Health Science Books @ Respiratory diseases can arise from a number of causes, including inhalation of toxic agents, accidents, and harmful lifestyles, such as smoking. Infections, genetic factors, and anything else that affects lung development, either directly or indirectly, can cause respiratory symptoms.

Clinical Respiratory Medicine provides practical guidance to help you more effectively diagnose and manage the full range Respiratory function in disease book pulmonary disorders, including those seen in today’s most challenging patient populations. / Medical Books /. Respiratory disease is a medical term that encompasses pathological conditions affecting the organs and tissues that make gas exchange possible in higher organisms, and includes conditions of the upper respiratory tract, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli, pleura and pleural cavity, and the nerves and muscles of breathing.

Pulmonary function tests include spirometry (which measures ventilation of the lungs), DLCO tests (which measure gas diffusion in the lungs), ABG tests (which measure the partial pressure of oxygen, PaO 2, and carbon dioxide, PaCO 2, in the arterial blood), and pulse oximetry (which measures oxygen saturation, SpO 2, of peripheral blood hemoglobin).

expulsive function. It is an important sign indicating the presence of primary or secondary disease of the respiratory system. 4-Nasal discharge: ÄAbnormal nasal discharge is usually an indication of respiratory diseases. Mucoid or purulent discharge indicates the presence of inflammation in the nasal cavities or paranasal sinus.

Advice Regarding COVID 19 For Pulmonary Function Laboratories. Concern has been raised that pulmonary function testing could represent a potential avenue for COVID 19 transmission due to the congregation of patients with lung disease and because of the potential for coughing and droplet formation surrounding pulmonary function testing procedures.

The lungs are the foundational organs of the respiratory system, whose most basic function is to facilitate gas exchange from the environment into the bloodstream. Oxygen gets transported through the alveoli into the capillary network, where it. Cough and phlegm often precede dyspnoea on exertion by many years.

Other symptoms include wheezing and chest tightness. As the disease progresses and reaches the severe stages, fatigue, weight loss and anorexia may increase. To establish the diagnosis of COPD, lung function measurement by spirometry is necessary.
