Respiratory disorders encompass a wide range of conditions affecting the respiratory system, which includes the lungs, airways, and related structures. Common respiratory disorders include asthma, characterized by airway inflammation and bronchospasms, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which comprises chronic bronchitis and emphysema, leading to airflow limitation. Other conditions like pneumonia, bronchitis, and lung cancer also disrupt respiratory function. Sleep apnea disrupts breathing during sleep, while cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder causing thick mucus buildup in the airways. Early diagnosis and management are crucial for these disorders, as they can significantly impact an individual’s quality of life and long-term health.
