    Second-hand smoke causes severe respiratory health problems in children, such as asthma and reduced lung function; and asthma is now the most common chronic disease among children throughout the Region. According to the latest available data for –, over 12% of infant deaths in the Region are due to respiratory diseases.   Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a leading cause of world-wide mortality and disability. On average ∼5–15% of adults in industrialized countries have COPD defined by spirometry. In , COPD was considered to be at the twelfth position world-wide as a cause of combined mortality and disability but is expected to become the fifth cause by the year Cited by:

    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. This section aims to publish studies on the epidemiology of chronic diseases and the use of public health interventions for their control.

      Disease prevalence is much lower than that in adults; in a study from India, children constituted % of all patients with chronic kidney disease seen in a referral hospital. Data from the ItalKid study reported a mean incidence of cases per year per million in the age-related population (age range, y) and a prevalence of   The pathophysiology of cor pulmonale is a result of increased right-sided filling pressures from pulmonary hypertension that is associated with diseases of the lung. The increased afterload leads to structural alterations in the right ventricle (RV) including RV hypertrophy (RVH) which can be seen in chronic cor pulmonale.

Respiratory disorders in infants and children are challenging problems for every clinician involved in the management of these patients. This book summarises recent advances in paediatric pulmonology.

The scholarly contributions of the distinguished contributors represent a careful and comprehensive synthesis of current knowledge in pathogenesis, diagnosis and by: chronic respiratory diseases. The prevalence estimates shown in Table 4 are likely to be conservative.

Epidemiology, prevalence, economic burden, vulnerable populations Many diseases affect the pleural space in both adults and children, including common diseases such as pneumonia, breast cancer, and heart failure. Pleural disease is, therefore, often a secondary effect of another disease.

The possibility that CO emitted from cigarettes could harm persons with chronic heart or lung disease was also mentioned.

Secondhand tobacco smoke was then addressed in greater depth in Chapter 4 (Involuntary Smoking) of the Surgeon General’s report, The Health Consequences of Smoking (USDHEW ). have a higher incidence of interstitial lung disease, although less is known about most of the other forms of interstitial disease.

Although not all patients who develop IPF have a history of cigarette smoking, smoking has been associated with the development of disease. The ERS-education website provides centralised access to all educational material produced by the European Respiratory Society.

It is the world’s largest CME collection for lung diseases and treatment offering high quality e-learning and teaching resources for respiratory specialists.

This distance learning portal contains up-to-date study material for the state-of-the-art in Pulmonology. The data in this chapter are based on the International Classification of Disease, 10th revision (ICD) codes J40–J44 and J47, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases and bronchiectasis (which have much in common).

The diagnostic codes J45 and J46 (asthma and status asthmaticus) have generally not been included. Cystic fibrosis—an inherited lung disease for which there is no cure.

Children's interstitial lung diseases (chILD) are increasingly recognised and contain many lung developmental and genetic disorders not yet identified in adult pneumology.

Worldwide, several registers have been established. The Australasian Registry Network for Orphan Lung Disease (ARNOLD) has identified problems in estimating rare disease prevalence; focusing on chILD in Cited by: 5.

Childhood interstitial (in-ter-STISH-al) lung disease, or chILD, is a broad term for a group of rare lung diseases that can affect babies, children, and teens.

These diseases have some similar symptoms, such as chronic cough, rapid breathing, and shortness of breath. These diseases. Chronic respiratory diseases are chronic diseases of the airways and other parts of the lung. Some of the most common are asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer, cystic fibrosis, sleep apnea and occupational lung diseases.

Respiratory diseases affect all ages-children, teens, adults and seniors.Types of chronic lung disease range from congenital conditions like asthma to those caused by tissue damage, like emphysema and lung cancer. Learn the common types, causes, and risk factors, what Author: Colleen Story.

Asthma is a globally significant non-communicable disease with major public health consequences for both children and adults, including high morbidity, and mortality in severe cases.
