Bronchiectasis - Glossary

Font : A-A+

Glossary

Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis: This is a condition that affects the larger airways, primarily in patients suffering from asthma. It is triggered by an allergic reaction to a particular group of fungi called Aspergillus. The reaction can result in the formation of mucus plugs that obstruct airflow and cause bronchiectasis.

Respiratory Failure: This is a condition in which lung functioning is impaired causing inadequate oxygenation of the blood or reduced removal of carbon dioxide from the blood.

Atelectasis: This is a condition in which part of the lung collapses or no longer inflates properly. It can affect one or more areas of the lungs and it impairs your lungs’ ability to oxygenate blood.
