  • Rheumatoid Lung Disease

    These changes may reflect chronic immune activation, increased susceptibility to infection (often related to immunomodulatory medications) or direct toxicity from disease[err.ersjournals.com] dyspnea diagnosis: combination of studies including inspiratory and expiratory flow volume loops, contrast-enhanced HRCT, and laryngoscopy.[wargovich155881112.net] Acute bronchitis is most often due to a viral infection, causing a wet cough that last for up to 4 weeks.[livestrong.com]

  • Bronchitis

    Try to avoid being around smokers because even secondhand smoke can make you more susceptible to viral infections and increase congestion in your airway.[kidshealth.org] Distinct sensations include effort/work, chest tightness, and air hunger (the feeling of not enough oxygen).[1] Dyspnea is a normal symptom of heavy exertion but becomes pathological[en.wikipedia.org] There are two main types of bronchitis: acute and chronic. Most cases of acute bronchitis get better within several days.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    A pathological condition of the lungs marked by an abnormal increase in the size of the air spaces, resulting in labored breathing and an increased susceptibility to infection[web.archive.org] According to the history of chronic cough and exertional dyspnea, he was treated with inhaled corticosteroids for COPD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An oral NTHi vaccine has been developed to protect against recurrent infective acute exacerbations in chronic bronchitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lobar Pneumonia

    A possible explanation of these findings is that welding fume reversibly increases the susceptibility of the lung to pneumonic infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 78-year-old previously healthy man presented with two days of cough productive of thick purulent sputum, fever and dyspnea on exertion.[accessemergencymedicine.mhmedical.com] bronchitis J20.0 Acute bronchitis due to Mycoplasma pneumoniae J20.1 Acute bronchitis due to Hemophilus influenzae J20.2 Acute bronchitis due to streptococcus J20.3 Acute[icd10data.com]
