Pulmonary fibrosis and sarcoidosis are examples of lung tissue disease. Lung circulation diseases -- These diseases affect the blood vessels in the lungs. They are caused by clotting, scarring, or inflammation of the blood vessels. They affect the ability of the lungs to take up oxygen and release carbon dioxide. These diseases may also affect heart function. An example of a lung circulation . Marlyn S. Woo, Jacqueline R. Szmuszkovicz, in Pulmonary Manifestations of Pediatric Diseases, Bronchial Circulation. In contrast to the pulmonary circulation, the bronchial circulation is small, carrying only 1% of the cardiac output. The bronchial arteries carry oxygenated blood to the lungs as part of the general systemic circulatory system.

  Pulmonary hypertension (PH) frequently complicates the course of patients with various forms of chronic lung disease (CLD). CLD-associated PH (CLD-PH) is invariably associated with reduced functional ability, impaired quality of life, greater oxygen requirements and an increased risk of mortality. The aetiology of CLD-PH is complex and multifactorial, with differences in the pathogenic Cited by: “An important addition to the growing body of literature on natural medicine, Natural Therapies for Emphysema and COPD provides a much needed and in-depth approach to natural therapies for chronic respiratory disorders. Highly recommended.”, James Strohecker, CEO of HealthWorld Online and executive editor of Alternative Medicine: The Defini “Robert Green Jr.’s book on emphysema and Cited by: 4.

First of all, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(=COPD) is a very common lung disease, mostly caused by years of cigarette smoking. However, it is a spectrum of lung diseases where the patient has problems breathing out. The medical language for this is “prolonged expiratory airflow”. The lab technician measures this with spirometry. The lung is no exception, and pulmonary fibrosis is a result of excessive deposition of collagen in the lung extracellular matrix. In pulmonary fibrosis the initial disease process is diverse (Table ) and may cause changes in either type I or type II alveolar epithelial cells.

Pulmonary hypertension is a common complication in lung disease. In the most recent revised classification of pulmonary hypertension (PH), chronic lung diseases or conditions with alveolar hypoxia are included in WHO Group III of PH-related diseases (Table 1) [1,2].Cited by: 1.

Chronic respiratory diseases, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), place a heavy burden on societies as a whole and on individuals and their families.

In fact, million people throughout the world suffer from COPD. Unfortunately, according to WHO estimates, these figures are destined to Size: 1MB. Group 3 pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a common complication of advanced chronic lung disease. Our hypothesis was that group 3 PH is associated with a more severe baseline presentation and a more severe prognosis compared to group 1 pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), chronic thromboembolic PH (group 4), and group 5 PH.

Pulmonary Biology in Health and Disease was conceived as a companion to a handful of expensive, multivolume textbooks. This is part of the promising trend to publish shorter textbooks on the subjects of lung biology and remodeling. Whoever is familiar with human biology and the far-reaching consequences of the genome and postgenome revolutions is apt to concede that the centerpiece in.

Introduction. This article provides an update on pulmonary hypertension (PH) associated with chronic lung disease (CLD), with the main focus being on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and interstitial lung disease (ILD) [].There is evidence that PH is associated with other CLDs such as cystic fibrosis and bronchopulmonary dysplasia [2, 3].Cited by: These types of lung diseases may affect your airways, lung tissues, or circulation of blood in and out of your lungs.

Oxidative Stress in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. There is considerable evidence, largely indirect, for increased oxidative stress in the lungs of COPD patients.

As explained previously, oxidative stress can be measured in several ways, including direct measurements of oxidant burden, indirect measures using response to oxidative stress, and measurements of the effects of oxidative stress on.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, is a long-term lung disease that makes it hard to breathe.

The disease affects millions of Americans and is the third leading cause of disease-related death in the U.S. The good news is. PAH is subdivided into idiopathic pulmonary hypertension [IPAH], familial PAH, persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, and associated pulmonary hypertension [APAH] when associated with conditions including chronic neonatal lung disease, congenital heart disease Cited by: In addition, the complex nature of cardiac and lung disease will also be explored, particularly with respect to the relationship between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, systemic inflammation, atherosclerosis, and cardiovascular death, which is currently a very active focus of by: Chronic respiratory disease.

Chronic respiratory diseases (CRDs) are long-term diseases of the airways and other structures of the lung. They are characterized by a high inflammatory cell recruitment (neutrophil) and/or destructive cycle of infection, (e.g. mediated by Pseudomonas aeruginosa).Specialty: Pulmonology.
