Respiratory Tract and Pulmonary Infectious Diseases

During a normal day, a person usually breathes nearly 25,000 times. The term respiratory disease refers to many disorders affecting the lungs, such as asthma, COPD, infections like influenza, pneumonia and tuberculosis, lung cancer and many other breathing problems. Some lung diseases can lead to respiratory failure out which a few are contagious and rest are not.  The features of different respiratory tract infections largely depend on the structures where inflammation is localised and the extent to which function is altered.

Therefore, infection of the nasopharynx, results in a nasal discharge, bronchitis in cough and sputum production, and pneumonia in cough and sputum, but also in increased respiratory rate and chest radiograph changes. Most upper respiratory tract infections are caused by viruses and are self-limiting.
