Lung Disease FAQ’s
What are lung diseases?
There are different types of lung diseases that include 1:
- Airway Diseases: this affects the airways that carry oxygen and other gases in and out of your lungs. It could feel like you are breathing through a straw!
- Lung Tissue Disease: this keeps the lungs from fully expanding, keeping you from breathing deeply. It could feel like you are wearing a tight sweater or a vest that is too tight!
- Lung Circulation Disease: this affects the blood vessels inside of the lungs and could actually affect the heart. When exerting yourself you could experience shortness of breath.
You can experience all or a combination of these lung diseases.
