Lung Disease

Lung disease is any disease or disorder where lung function does not work properly. There are three main types of lung diseases:

Obstructive lung disease -- a decrease in the exhaled air flow caused by a narrowing or blockage of the lung airways, which can occur with asthma, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis, most often due to smoking.

Restrictive lung disease -- a decrease in the total volume of air your the lungs are able to hold. Often, this lung capacity issue is due to a decrease in the elasticity of the lungs themselves or caused by a problem related to the expansion of the chest wall during inhalation. A defect in the ability of the lung's air sac tissue to move oxygen into a person's blood.

Most lung diseases actually involve a combination of these categories, such as emphysema, which involves both airflow obstruction and oxygenation problems. penis büyütme
