Pulmonary issues refers to health conditions that impact the lungs. Since the lungs are responsible for supplying the body with oxygen and removing carbon dioxide, any condition that impacts lung function can be serious. When you have any issues breathing, it can be a sign of a pulmonary issue or health condition impacting the lungs. Our team at Beverly Hills Concierge Doctor offers diagnosis and treatment for pulmonary issues at our urgent care center in the Los Angeles, CA, area.
Types of Pulmonary Conditions
Pulmonary diseases or conditions can vary from a typical cough from cold or flu to serious diseases like emphysema, COPD and lung cancer. Many of the most serious lung conditions are caused by long-term damage to the lungs. Smoking, poor air quality, chemicals, fumes and other airborne irritants can damage the lungs over time. Genetics and other factors can also increase risks for some lung diseases. The most common chronic lungs conditions include:
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Lung cancer
- Tuberculosis (TB)
Not all lung conditions are chronic. Acute conditions can occur that can cause coughing, wheezing and breathing issues. Bronchitis, lung infections, allergies, pneumonia and other respiratory illnesses can impact the lungs. There are also other conditions like GERD that are not respiratory illnesses but can impact lung function.
