Bronchiectasis and Atelectasis

An irreversible widening of the breathing pipes or respiratory airways resulting from damage to the cilia of epidermal is called Bronchiectasis. The severity of bronchiectasis is tested by computed tomography, Chest x-rays and breathing test. People often are given antibiotics and use other measures to suppress and clear the build-up of mucus.  The conditions in which lungs collapse and became airless are called atelectasis. 

The most common cause of atelectasis is blockage of the bronchial tubes. Atelectasis decreases the level of oxygen in the blood. This is caused due to alveoli closed and thus, stops gas exchanges between blood and alveoli.
