One of the most hazardous impacts of change in the environment that we live in is pollution. This is most felt by our respiratory organs, mainly the respiratory tract. Some common lung diseases that arise due to such hazardous factors include lung infection, emphysema, pleurisy, pneumonia, breathlessness, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis, asthma, and pulmonary tuberculosis. Severe impacts can also lead to lung cancer. Breathing is essential to human life and factors that prevent the smooth functioning of the respiratory tract can often be decisive. Therefore, the treatment has to be custom-made to the patient. Pulmonology is a branch of medicine that deals with the respiratory system functional abnormalities. Pulmonologist often deals with scenarios involving patients who require life support or mechanical ventilation.
