About the Journal

Impact Factor: 1.01*

Journal of Pulmonary & Respiratory Medicine is a peer reviewed medical journal that focus on a wide range of areas in this field including pulmonary, respiratory diseases related to respiratory system and treatment methods and creates a platform for the authors to make their contribution towards the journal and the editorial office promises a peer review process for the submitted manuscripts for the quality of publishing.

Pulmonary & Respiratory Medicine Journal is one of the best open access journals that aims to publish the most complete and reliable source of information on discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in the field and provide online access to the researchers worldwide without any restrictions or subscriptions.

Bronchoscopy is the endoscopic technique of visualizing airways carrying air from trachea or windpipe to the lungs for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Bronchoscope is a thin flexible tube to be inserted into airways through nose or mouth or through tracheostomy. Bronchoscopy is of two types, rigid and flexible.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a most common progressive lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. Two main forms of COPD are chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Treatment include inhaled bronchodilators, steroids, quitting smoking, vaccinations and rehabilitation. Long term oxygen therapy or lung transplantation benefit some people.

Lung Nodules

Lung nodules or coin lesion are smaller infiltrates or white masses of tissue in the lung distinguished from larger lung tumors. Lung nodules are oval or round in shape and ranges 3 centimetres in diameter. If the growth exceeds it is known as pulmonary mass.

Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis

Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP) characterized by abnormal alveolar filling with surfactants, floccular material and interferes with gas exchange is a rare lung disease. Two forms are primary and secondary caused by lung infections, hematologic malignancies, inhalation of mineral dusts, silica, titanium oxide, aluminium and insecticides.

Pulmonary Angiography

Pulmonary angiography is cardiological imaging test using special dye and x-rays to detect arteriovenous malformations and how blood flows through lungs. Direct angiography involves injection of dye into right heart with subsequent fluoroscopy into the circulation, to see shape, size and pulmonary vessels of lungs.

Pulmonary Aspergillosis

Aspergillosis is an infection caused by fungus Aspergilus. Pulmonary aspergillosis is a long term aspergillus infection of the lung. Patients with CPA have or have had lung diseases (tuberculosis, lung cancer, COPD, mycobacterial infection, emphysema, asthma and silicosis).

Pulmonary Cancer

Pulmonary cancer or lung cancer is also termed as carcinoma of the lung or pulmonary carcinoma is uncontrollable cell growth in tissues of the lung. Carcinogenic factors( chemicals, cigarette smoking, air pollution and asbestos attribute lung cancer). Treatment involves surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Pulmonary Circulation

Pulmonary circulation forms a closed circuit between the heart and the lungs and is the movement of blood from the heart, to the lungs, and back to the heart again. It begins with the right ventricle which pumps deoxygenated blood away from the heart to the pulmonary artery for oxygenation.

Pulmonary Thromboembolism

Pulmonary thromboembolism is a blockage of the pulmonary arteries caused by the blood clot ( thrombus) that travels from the legs or rarely other parts of the body to the lungs, it originate in the deep venous system.

Pulmonary Critical Care

Pulmonary critical care is caring for patients with diseases related to lungs such as asthma, lung cancer, tuberculosis, fungal infections to the lung, pulmonary vascular diseases and breathing etc. Critical care provides clinical evaluation, diagnosis and treatment services to patients with health problems.

Pulmonary Dysplasia

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia occurs in premature babies and who have respiratory problems after birth is a chronic lung disorder. Pulmonary dysplasia can lead to inflammation and scarring in the lungs. BPD is classifierd into mild, moderate and severe.

Pulmonary Oedema

Pulmonary edema also called edema is the accumulation of fluids in the lungs airspaces and parenchyma. It occurs due to failure of left ventricle of the heart or an injury to the lung parenchyma termed as cardiogenic and noncardiogenic pulmonary edema respectively.

Pulmonary Effusion

Pulmonary effusion or pleural effusion is the accumulation of excess fluid around the lung in the pleural cavity.Treatment varies with the underlying cause of the pleural effusion and may be directed at removing the fluid, preventing its re-accumulation.

Pulmonary Eosinophilia

Pulmonary eosinophilia is the inflammation of lungs from an increased eosinophilic cells. Symptoms are chest pain, dry cough, fever, general ill feeling, rashes, shortness of breath, wheezing and rapid respiratory rate. Pulmonary eosinophila is a heterogeneous group of disorders.

Pulmonary Fibrosis

Pulmonary fibrosis (idiopathic) causes thick, stiff scar tissue to grow inside the lungs. The scar tissue slows oxygen flow from the lungs to blood and make hard to breathe. Symptoms include shortness of breath, dry cough, fatigue, unexplained weightloss, aches in muscles and joints.

Pulmonary Function Tests

Pulmonary function tests are group of non invasive diagnostic tests that evaluates respiratory system and provide measures of lungs take in and release air and gases (oxygen) from atmosphere into body’s circulation. Measurements are done by spirometry, lung volumes, diffusing capacity.

Pulmonary Hypoplasia

Pulmonary hypoplasia is the spectrum of malformations causing incomplete development of the lungs, often occurs secondary to other fetal abnormalities. It results in less in size or number of alveoli or broncho pulmonary segments.

*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 than, impact factor = X/Y
