BACKGROUND: Elderly patients may be at greater risk for misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment as a consequence of pulmonary function test underutilization and tests being conducted with low quality expectations. This study sought to determine if elderly patients are able to achieve both spirometry and diffusion capacity (DLCO) quality scores comparable to a younger adult population.   Restrictive lung disease is a group of conditions that prevent the lungs from expanding to full capacity and filling with air. It includes conditions such as pneumonia and interstitial lung disease.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, refers to a group of diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing-related problems. It includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. COPD makes breathing difficult for the 16 million Americans who have this disease.   Lung tissue diseases – the structure of the lung tissue is affected. Tissue inflammation or scarring causes restrictive lung disease – the lungs cannot expand fully, making it harder to breath.

CHRONIC RESPIRATORY DISEASES Occupational lung diseases. Sleep apnea syndrome. Pulmonary hypertension. Respiratory symptoms are among the major causes of consultation at primary health care centres. Surveys in nine countries, in 76 primary health care facilities, among which 54 (%) involved medical offi cers and 22 (%) nurses only. Comparative Study of Two Different Respiratory Training Protocols in Elderly Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Clin Interv Aging.

Print Book & E-Book. ISBNLung diseases are some of the most common medical conditions in the world. Tens of millions of people have lung disease in the U.S.

alone. Smoking, infections, and genes cause most lung diseases. This book aims to make the physician's approach to the elderly respiratory patient truly comprehensive, by arming them with the information necessary to help improve care procedures, further develop assessment and treatment protocols and give guidance on how to widen attention for the elderly patient beyond the immediate respiratory problem.

Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is an umbrella term used for a large group of diseases that cause scarring (fibrosis) of the lungs. The scarring causes stiffness in the lungs which makes it difficult to breathe and get oxygen to the bloodstream.

Goal. Promote respiratory health through better prevention, detection, treatment, and education efforts. Overview.

Asthma 1 and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) 2 are significant public health burdens. Specific methods of detection, intervention, and treatment exist that may reduce this burden and promote health.

3, 4, 5 Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways. COPD, short for Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a progressive lung condition that causes an individual to have difficulty breathing. This disease will worsen over time, hence being defined as progressive.

Although males are more likely to have this disease, death rates for both genders are relatively close. The Function of the Human Lung To learn how COPD affects the lung, we must. Pulmonary Disorders of the Elderly - ACP Books ACP Books, This new book is a complete, convenient, practical guide to the diagnosis and management of pulmonary disorders in elderly patients.

Adult respiratory diseases in the developing world are a major burden in terms of morbidity and mortality and, particularly as related to chronic respiratory disease, are of increasing concern (Murray and Lopez ). For many years, the leading cause of adult respiratory disease mortality has been tuberculosis, which still kills far more people than it should, given the increased efficacy of.

Clinical vignette. An year-old male with a clinical presumptive diagnosis of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and several comorbidities (hypertension, chronic stable angina, peripheral artery disease, chronic renal failure, severe osteoporosis and diabetes mellitus (DM), Parkinson's disease) presented to the Emergency Department (ED) with progressively worsening.

TUESDAY, Jan. 6, (HealthDay News) -- Nearly 15 percent, or about one out of seven, middle-aged and older U.S. adults suffer from lung disorders such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary.

Pulmonary Disease in the Elderly Eleanor M. Summerhill CLINICAL PEARLS Although the physiologic reserve of the respiratory system declines with age, dyspnea with usual activity is abnormal and should trigger an investigation for underlying disease.

The perception of dyspnea appears to be blunted in the elderly and may delay seeking medical attention. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pulmonary embolism, infection, and carcinoma of the lung constitute the major burden of pulmonary disorders.

These disorders are much more common in elderly than younger individuals. This entry will discuss COPD, probably the most preventable of lung disorders.

The purpose of this review is to discuss the epidemiology of common pulmonary diseases, namely pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, lung cancer, and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in older patients. We will review common clinical presentations for these diseases and highlight differences between younger and older patients.

Despite the relationship between idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and advancing age, little is known about the epidemiology of interstitial lung disease (ILD) in the elderly.

We describe the diagnoses, clinical characteristics, and outcomes of patients who were elderly at the time of ILD diagnosis. A year-old COVID survivor in Chicago had a lung transplant that was necessary to treat a condition now being called post-COVID fibrosis.

All data and statistics are based on publicly. Lung disease is any problem in the lungs that prevents the lungs from working properly.

There are three main types of lung disease: Airway diseases -- These diseases affect the tubes (airways) that carry oxygen and other gases into and out of the lungs. They usually cause a narrowing or blockage of the airways. Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR), which is defined as a comprehensive intervention program that includes exercise training, education, and behavioral change and prescribed on the basis of an exhaustive individual assessment, aims to improve the physical and psychological conditions of patients with chronic respiratory diseases.

Sadly, information is sparse on age related changes in ventilatory control. Similarly, interstitial lung disease in elderly people is not well understood and the book highlights aspects that need further study. It also draws attention to the rising incidence of pulmonary tuberculosis in elderly people and discusses effective antimicrobial therapy.
