Asthma. It is a chronic disease of the airways that makes breathing difficult.
Both diseases of adults and pediatric lung diseases are presented. The book will serve as an excellent guide to the diagnosis of these diseases, but in addition it explains the disease mechanisms and etiology. Genetics and molecular biology are also discussed whenever necessary for a full understanding. Browse book content. About the book. Search in this book. Search in this book.

Respiratory diseases, or lung diseases, are pathological conditions affecting the organs and tissues that make gas exchange difficult in air-breathing animals. They include conditions of the respiratory tract including the trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli, pleurae, pleural cavity, and the nerves and muscles of atory diseases range from mild and self-limiting, such as Specialty: Pulmonology. Respiratory failure is a clinical condition that happens when the respiratory system fails to maintain its main function, which is gas exchange, in which PaO2 lower than 60 mmHg and/or PaCO2 higher than 50 mmHg. Respiratory failure is classified according to blood gases abnormalities into type 1 and type 2.

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.
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. More than half of all the deaths from lung disease in Europe, and at least one-quarter of all respiratory hospital admissions, are due to diseases caused by smoking.
