Respiratory disorders are medical conditions that affect the respiratory system, which includes the nose, throat, trachea, bronchi, and lungs. These disorders can affect the ability to breathe properly, and can range from mild, short-term conditions to severe, chronic diseases.
Some common respiratory disorders include:
- Asthma: A chronic condition characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, which can cause wheezing, coughing, and difficulty breathing.
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): A group of lung diseases, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, that make it difficult to breathe due to damage to the airways and lungs.
- Pneumonia: An infection of the lungs that causes inflammation and fluid buildup, making it difficult to breathe.
- Tuberculosis: A bacterial infection that primarily affects the lungs, causing coughing, chest pain, and difficulty breathing.
- Allergic rhinitis: An allergic reaction to airborne substances, such as pollen, dust, or animal dander, that causes symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, and nasal congestion.
Prevention strategies may include avoiding triggers, quitting smoking, and maintaining good hygiene to prevent infections.
