Dr. Otto J. Placik answered:

What sort of disease is a cold weather injury?

Frostbite injury

Occlusion_therapy
Cold weather injury is most likely known as frostbrite. It can effect any part of the body but most commonly effects extremities. Treatment is directed at gentle (not rapid) rewarming of the effected part. Observation is subsequently monitored. Pathophysiology involves vascular occlusion and necrosis. Once tissues have demarcated, debridement and reeconstruction is instituted.

How can I determine whether I have lung damage from silicate inhalation?

See your doctor

Lungs
The most effective test would be pulmonary function studies, which will show how your lungs are functioning now. If you had a previous set done, comparison would show what the effects of exposure are.

Is the lung damage from meconium aspiration permanent?

No

Lungs
Meconium aspiration, per se, is uncommon, and many cases of so-called meconium aspiration are simply other forms of respiratory distress noted in newborns who also passed meconium prior to delivery. True meconium aspiration does cause acute lung injury but most, if not all, cases heal completely within days to weeks.

Dr. Robert Kent answered:

Does Vicodin cause lung damage if taken regularly?

No

Chest-lung
While opioids can affect the respiratory centers in the brain, use of them do not directly effect or damage your lungs. Acetaminophen does not damage your lungs either, unless you count late stage liver failure, but again, that is a secondary relationship; it will not cause damage to your lungs. If you have COPD, it can affect your breathing though, again centrally, so be cautious.
