Consultation for All Respiratory Disorders

Asthma: Your airways are constantly inflamed and may spasm, causing wheezing and shortness of breath. Allergies, infections, or pollution can trigger asthma symptoms.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): With this lung condition, you can’t exhale the way you usually would, which causes trouble breathing.
Chronic bronchitis: This form of COPD brings a long-term wet cough.
Emphysema: Lung damage allows air to be trapped in your lungs in this form of COPD. Trouble blowing air out is its hallmark.
Acute bronchitis: This sudden infection of your airways is usually caused by a virus.
Cystic fibrosis: With this condition, you have trouble clearing mucus out of your bronchi. This leads to repeated lung infections.
