Restrictive lung disease is either due to the decrease in the elasticity of the lungs or the expansion of the chest walls. > Lung Health and Diseases > Lung Disease Lookup > BOOP Bronchiolitis Obliterans with Organizing Pneumonia (BOOP) Bronchiolitis obliterans with organizing pneumonia (BOOP), also called Cryptogenic Organizing Pneumonia (COP), is a rare lung condition affecting the small airways (bronchioles), alveoli (tiny air sacs) and the walls.

DLCO may be severely reduced in some disorders, such as interstitial lung disease (for example, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, asbestosis, and sarcoidosis) and COPD (particularly emphysema), even when the results of spirometry are not significantly reduced.

ERS - Respiratory health and disease in Europe The burden of lung disease More than half of all the deaths from lung disease in Europe, and Lung Disease book least one-quarter of all respiratory hospital admissions, are due to diseases caused by smoking.

Introduction. Lung disease is common among both men and women. It is more frequent in smokers than in non-smokers. The death rate from these diseases is on 4th place (after heart disease, cancer and stroke) and is increasing in women as a group versus men.

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), the most common of the chronic lung diseases of infancy, begins as an acute illness in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and progresses to a chronic disease with physiologic, emotional, and educational consequences into adolescence and beyond.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) 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.

Interstitial lung disease (ILD), sometimes called diffused parenchymal diseases, describes a heterogeneous collection of distinctive lung disorders classified on the grounds of shared clinical, radiographic, physiologic or pathologic factors.

What makes it difficult to understand this group of diseases is the confusing terminology. The pathogenetic sequence in actuality involves a series of Author: Marsha Antoine, Mouna Mlika.

Lung transplantation is a suitable treatment to improve survival of patients with various end-stage pulmonary diseases. Lung transplantation is an orphan therapy with an annual incidence of approximately five procedures per million inhabitants in most Western countries.

Orphan lung diseases account for ∼5% of all by: Interstitial Lung Disease 10 Interstitial lung disease is a term that broadly describes a diverse collection of more than lung disorders. These diseases are classified together because they all affect the tissue and space around the alveoli (air sacs), called the inter-stitium.

Depending on the specific disease, other compartments of the lung. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, is an umbrella term for lung diseases. Chronic bronchitis and emphysema are familiar types of COPD.

The condition is an under-diagnosed, life-threatening disease that currently affects 64 million people worldwide. Respiratory Disease and Infection. 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.

Interstitial lung diseases represent an expanding field of respiratory medicine and pose important daily challenges for lung physicians. There have been tremendous advances in recent years in the understanding of the genetic basis and pathogenesis of a wide range of interstitial lung diseases.

People with COPD must work harder to breathe, which can lead to shortness of breath and/or feeling tired.

Early in the disease, people with COPD may feel short of breath when they exercise.Interstitial lung diseases are rare and diffuse, and their diagnosis is a challenge because it requires a multidisciplinary approach.

Future trends in the treatment of these diseases requires knowledge of the molecular changes in various types of lung cells involved in disease occurence and development.
