Respiratory Disease States

  • Pleural Effusion
  • Acute Lung Injury
  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Pleural Effusion (PE) is defined by fluid buildup surrounding the lungs in the pleural cavity. This excess fluid may cause chest pain and shortness of breath, reducing the lung's capacity for expansion and for oxygenating the blood.  More >

Acute Lung Injury (ALI) describes a number of clinical symptoms and syndromes with significant morbidity and mortality. The disease is characterized by hypoxemia and diffuse pulmonary infiltrates. In early phase acute lung injury, edema fluid leaks into the lungs due to endothelial and epithelial injury along with inflammatory infiltrates, resulting in reduced lung compliance.  More >

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is defined as scar tissue of the lungs from unknown causes, perhaps deriving genetically or in response to disease or injury. The condition results in poor efficiency in the lungs, either in passively exchanging oxygen and carbon dioxide or in fully expanding to draw in air.  More >
