A Lung Disease Causes By Breathing In Volcanic Ash
Narrow airways: The straw represents narrow air passages.Get a more detailed answer ›
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
Airflow resistance: Think of the lungs as a giant balloon. The critical point in the system is the neck of the balloon. The narrower the neck, the harder it is for air to flow in and out. In chronic obstructive lung disease the bronchial tubes are narrower due to mucous, swelling, inflammation and sometimes loss of support structures. The straw analogy relates to the airflow limitation through smaller tubes/airways.See 1 more doctor answer
Can breathing in a rotten apple for an extended period of time be harmful to health? Can it cause lung disease?
Potentially: If the apple was rotten enough, you might inhale mold spores which is a health hazard, and could cause lung problems, but that is an extreme version of a rotten apple. Throw it away!See 1 more doctor answer

Grandfather hospitalized for difficulty breathing. Age 77y, so is heart or lung disease more common?
Heart: Heart disease is more common. In 2008, cardiovascular diseased caused 812, 000 deaths—33 percent of all deaths wheresas lung disease caused 242, 000. However, overall population statistics may have nothing to do with your grandfatther and hopefully evaluation in the hospital will quickly determine the causes for his shortness of breath whether cardiac/lung or even anemia. Good luck.

Could anybody get subclavin steel syndrome's or unknown lung disease caused by immune system turning on you?
Possibly: Most cases of subclavian steal syndrome are due to non-immune causes, such as atherosclerosis, cervical rib. Very few cases of giant-cell arteritis with that syndrome have been described. As for unknown lung diseases, there are several that are several that are due to a hyperactive immune system.
Can you tell me about subclavin steel syndrome's or unknown lung disease caused by immune system turning on you?
See below: It is a constellation of signs and symptoms that arise from retrograde (reversed) flow of blood in the vertebral artery or the internal thoracic artery, due to a proximal stenosis (narrowing) and/or occlusion of the subclavian artery.
Mayo defines instertitial markings a lung disease caused ie (asbestos, silica dust, grain dust?) are dependent instertitial different if syptm same?
Just a description: "Interstitial markings" are a descriptive term that radiologists and lung specialists use to describe specific markings in the lungs on chest xrays or CT scans. Many different types of diseases in the lungs cause "interstitial markings." The way to find out which disease it is usually requires a biopsy of some sort. The symptoms are usually cough and shortness of breath.
A few: One of the most common lung difficulties we see, especially with c-section babies, is transient tachypnea of the newborn. This occurs when there is still fluid in the lungs, because the baby didn't exit via the birth canal and literally have the fluid squeezed out. Infections can also occur resulting in pneumonia. Some babies "transition" slowly, & need a little help learning to breath room air.See 1 more doctor answer
Several mechanisms: Depending on what specific lung disease. Infection, inflammation, reduced oxygenation all can cause tachycardia.
