Medical & Surgical Procedures:
Emphysema
Emphysema is a long-term, progressive disease of lungs that primarily causes shortness of breath. In people with emphysema, the tissues necessary to support the physical shape and function of the lungs are destroyed. Emphysema is known as an obstructive lung disease because airflow on exhalation is slowed or stopped because over-inflated alveoli do not exchange gases.
Bronchoscopy
Bronchoscopy is a medical examination that allows the doctor to examine the airways in the body. In the test, the doctor threads an instrument called a bronchoscope through the nose or mouth and further down the throat to reach the lungs.
Asthma
Asthma is a disorder that causes the airways of the lungs to swell and narrow, resulting into wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing. While asthma is classified based on severity, at the moment there is no clear method for classifying different subgroups of asthma beyond this system.
Sleep Disorders
Affecting the mood, weight, hormone levels and ability to sleep well, either because of stress or a continuing health problem, sleep disorders are becoming increasingly common owing to the fast-paced lifestyle.
