Chronic Lung Disease Q & A

What is chronic lung disease?

Chronic lung disease is a grouping of multiple disease types that affect your lungs. There are a number of different types of lung diseases, and each of them comes with their own unique causes and symptoms.

Regardless of the type of disease impacting your body, the lung specialists at RevaMed Primary Care Associates help you get the treatment you need to minimize your symptoms, protect your lungs, and improve your quality of life. 

What are the most common types of chronic lung disease?

RevaMed Primary Care Associates treats all of the most common types of lung disease, including:

Asthma

Asthma causes your airways to narrow or get blocked by mucus, making it hard to take a full, deep breath. Fortunately, RevaMed Primary Care Associates offers treatment — from quick-relief inhalers to medication to avoidance of your asthma trigger — to help you breathe easily again. 

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

COPD causes inflammation in your lungs that makes it harder to breathe. Treatment helps slow the progression of COPD. 

Pulmonary hypertension

High blood pressure in the lungs can lead to blood clots and heart failure. RevaMed Primary Care Associates offers treatment to help you lower your blood pressure, protecting your health long-term. 

Interstitial lung disease

Over 200 types of lung conditions qualify as interstitial lung disease, which causes inflammation and scarring of your lung tissue. This leaves you with symptoms like trouble breathing and a dry cough. Treatment slows the progression of these lung diseases, helping preserve your ability to breathe normally. 

Cystic fibrosis

This condition causes excessive, sticky mucus in your lungs, which compromises your ability to breathe easily and can cause lung infections. RevaMed Primary Care Associates uses medication and physical therapy to help loosen the mucus in your lungs.

Lung cancer

Lung cancer is also a chronic lung disease that chronic cough, shortness of breath, and wheezing characterize. RevaMed Primary Care Associates works with your oncologist to personalize your lung cancer treatment to you.

What does chronic lung disease treatment entail?

It depends on the type of disease affecting your lungs. RevaMed Primary Care Associates personalizes a treatment plan to your lungs and your body, helping you get the best health outcome.
