Lung Diseases

Detail about our service

Respiratory Health

The lungs are essential organs for respiration in humans. However, they can be affected by various disorders and diseases that can hamper their functioning. .

  • Pulmonary Hypertension
  • Interstitial Lung Disease
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Immunologically Mediated Illnesses

Respiratory Disorders

covers a wide range of conditions affecting breathing function, including asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and pneumonia.

Interstitial Lung Disease

refers to a group of conditions characterized by inflammation and scarring of the tissue surrounding air sacs and blood vessels within the lungs, leading to progressive difficulty in breathing over time.

Pulmonary Hypertension

describes abnormally elevated pressures inside arteries connecting the right side of heart to lungs due to various reasons such as congenital heart defects, connective tissue or autoimmune diseases.

How do smoking and secondhand smoke contribute to lung disease?

Smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke are major risk factors for the development of many types of lung disease, including lung cancer, COPD, and coronary heart disease. Smokers are at an increased risk of developing these conditions compared to non-smokers. Additionally, passive smoking, also known as involuntary smoking, harms not only active smokers but anyone exposed to smoke from nearby burning cigarette sources. The smoke released directly into the atmosphere and the particles accumulating onto surfaces both contain thousands of dangerous chemical compounds including tar, nicotine, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds(VOCs) and heavy metals whose deposition leads to lung damage. Both primary and secondary smoke contains more than seventy known cancer-causing agents called carcinogens. Prolonged and frequent exposure increases risk considerably.

How does air pollution impact lung health?

Air pollution contributes to many serious respiratory issues. It includes substances that interfere with normal breathing process either by entering deep down in the lungs, attaching themselves to alveoli surface and impeding exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide gas molecules between lung capillaries and alveolar space OR by being inhaled deeply enough into smaller branches of tracheobronchial tree close to their target destination in the periphery before getting filtered by pulmonary filter units consisting of hair like projections called cilia meant to trap them and later transported through mucociliary clearance mechanism deeper into throat to be swallowed away or spat out .Common sources of air pollutants are factories releasing large amounts of industrial fumes with gases containing Sulfur oxides (SOX), Nitrogen oxides (NOX) and Particulates of different sizes including PM10,PM2.5 & PM2.5 respirable fraction.Major individual sources are vehicles having incomplete combustion of fuel in engines giving rise to Gaseous Pollutants namely Carbon monoxide (CO), Volatile Organic Compounds

Can exercise benefit individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)?

Yes, even though COPD is characterized by decreased lung function due to underlying lung destruction, aerobic exercise training may result in improved endurance capacity, strength, balance and quality of life. While high intensity exercises may increase dyspnea symptoms, gradual adaptation over time improves tolerability and overall activity levels while enhancing delivery of oxygen supply from red cells. Resistance training can also help improve muscle mass, power output, and postural stability without worsening respiratory symptoms if appropriately tailored to an individual’s baseline fitness level and modified according to exacerbations. Nonetheless, it is essential for patients to consult with their doctor prior to starting any new exercise routine to establish safe and effective parameters based upon their unique condition.

What are some dietary modifications that could promote better lung health?

Maintaining optimal nutrition is crucial for lung health. Consuming food rich in Vitamin A, C, E, Beta-carotene, Calcium and Iron helps maintain healthy immune response, reduces inflammation and supports repair processes within damaged tissue. For example, consuming colorful fruits and vegetables such as berries, citrus fruits, sweet potatoes, carrots and leafy greens provide various vitamins which act as antioxidants protecting against free radical attack and promoting cell regeneration. Food items with anti-inflammatory properties include fatty fish such as salmon, herring, sardines and trout along with plant-based omega-3s found in walnuts, flaxseed, chia seeds, hemp seeds and soybeans. Zinc supplementation has been shown to enhance wound healing after lung surgery and reduce incidence of bronchopneumonia in children with malnutrition. Finally, avoiding processed meats, sugars and highly refined grain products can aid in reducing likelihood of harmful gut bacteria fermentation producing inflammation inducing lipopolysaccharides leading to worse lung condition outcomes.

Overview For Patients And Caregivers

The emphasis is laid on being knowledgeable to live a fulfilling life while suffering from a lung disease. Ultimately aiming to inspire people to take control of their health
