Diseases That Can Occur in the Respiratory System
Common diagnostic tools for diagnosing respiratory disease include chest x-ray, pulmonary function test and CT scan. A bronchoscopy is performed by inserting a bronchoscope into the airways — usually through the nose or mouth — to examine for bleeding, tumors, inflammation or other abnormalities.
Diseases and conditions of the respiratory system can be caused by the inhalation of foreign bodies such as cigarette smoke, chemicals, allergens and other irritants. Not all people will develop respiratory ailments as a result of environmental factors, as genetics also play a role in the development of respiratory diseases.
Asthma causes breathing difficulties due to inflammation of bronchi and bronchioles, this causes a restriction in the airflow into the alveoli. Air pollution, tobacco smoke, factory fumes, cleaning solvents, infections, pollens, foods, cold air, exercise, chemicals and medications are some common asthma triggers.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the intersection of three related conditions — chronic bronchitis, chronic asthma, and emphysema. It is a progressive disease that makes in increasingly difficult for sufferers to breath.
Lung cancer is often associated with smoking, but the disease can affect non-smokers as well. Like all cancers, lung cancer is caused by the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells.
Some other ailments involving the respiratory system are respiratory infections, including tuberculosis, pneumonia and influenza.
