There are a variety of pulmonary diseases that can plague an individual, some are more common than others, and some are more serious than others. The various types include: • Asthma—Asthma is a fairly common complaint. It can be passed down through the generations or appear out of nowhere one day. Asthma occurs when the individual’s airways are inflamed, causing them to have trouble breathing. • Allergies—Most people have some form of allergy, whether it be to food, pollen or other pollutants. Very few people are lucky enough not to suffer from some form of allergy. Allergies can be treated or controlled with the careful use of medicines. It is however important to seek help for the treatment of allergies since some are potentially life threatening. • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)—Having difficulty breathing can be frightening. With COPD, the airways have trouble exhaling properly, causing the patient to have trouble breathing. • Bronchitis—A chronic cough may be a normal consequence of a cold or flu. If the cough persists for a long period of time or your condition worsens then you may want to have one of our specialists check you out for underlying conditions like bronchitis. • Emphysema—Our lungs can become damaged in a variety of ways. Emphysema is a chronic long term condition that needs top quality care to ensure the condition remains in check. • Cystic Fibrosis—Cystic fibrosis is a genetic condition generally passed down through the generations. Patients with a family history of this condition should seek medical advice to ensure that if the condition is diagnosed, it is treated as early as possible.
