This was an oral presentation I had to do for my Anatomy & Physiology I class. I chose the disease because my father has it. I gathered information on what the disease is, its prevalence (gender, ethnicity, age), causes, symptoms, diagnoses, treatments, and its effects.

Transcript

  • 1. EMPHYSEMABY: STACY ZIAULHAQ
  • 2. LUNG ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGYThe function of the lungs is to Oxygenate our blood byremoving Carbon Dioxide and replacing it with Oxygen.
  • 3. What is EmphysemaEmphysema (em-fi-SE-ma) is a type of Chronic ObstructivePulmonary Disease. COPD for short. COPD is generally a combination of Emphysema and Chronic Bronchitis both with varying degrees. It is a progressive disease of the lungs. The alveoli (air sacs) are irreversibly damaged causing breathing to become difficult. There is no curehttp://www.muschealth.com/video/Default.aspx?videoId=10192&cId=38&type=rel
  • 4. LUNG COMPARISONS
  • 5. SIDE-BY-SIDE COMPARISON
  • 6. What Are The CausesMOST COMMON Smoking (#1 cause) Prolonged exposure to second hand smoke Chemical fumes Dust Air pollution
  • 7. IN RARE CASES Deficiency of the Alpha-1 Antitrypsin A protein made by the liver that protects the lungs. That is inherited MM: normal level MS: 80% of normal MZ: 60% of normal SZ: 40% of normal ZZ: 10% of normal level
  • 8. WHO IS AT RISK Emphysema effects both men and women. Usually does not appear until the sixties.  But the disease can appear as early as forty depending on certain factors. Any ethnic group can develop emphysema.  One exception is the inherited form that mainly effects European Caucasians.
  • 9. SYMPTOMS OF EMPHYSEMA Coughing with or without phlegm(sometimes referred to as “smokers cough”) Dyspnea (shortness of breath) Trouble catching one’s breath Fatigue Wheezing Barrel- like distended chest Lethargy or difficulty concentrating Difficulty sleeping
  • 10. DIAGNOSIS Chest X – ray Blood test  Arterial Blood Gas (ABG) Lung Function Test also called Pulmonary Function Test or PFT (most common)Copyright © 2012, A.D.A.M., Inc.
  • 11. Treatment STOP smoking (if you smoke) Bronchodilators (inhalers)  Ex. Atrovent, Spiriva, Serevent, Foradil, and Albuterol Anti-inflammatory medication  Ex. Singulair and Roflimulast Antibiotics Oxygen therapy Pulmonary rehabilitation  Conserve energy, improve stamina, and reduce breathlessness SurgeryOther things include Avoid being around smoke and other irritants Avoiding the cold
  • 12. SOME FACTS ON COPD Close to 13 million American adults have been diagnosed with COPD. Many others have the disease and not know it. 51% say it limits their ability to work (lost productivity). The cost of COPD on the nation was approximately 49.9 billion dollars in 2010 (American Lung Association, February 2011). Chronic Lower Respiratory Disease is the third cause of death in the United States in 2011 with 143,382 deaths
  • 13. Worldwide Mortality Rate 0.80% 0.70% 0.70% 0.60% 1.40% 0.60% 0.70% 1.40% 1.50% United States 1.50% Japan 1.80% Brazil 1.90% Mexico 2% Germany Netherlands 2.90% South Africa 36.60% 2.90% Hungary Romania Canada4.80% Thailand Australia Austria 5.80% Spain Kyrgyzstan Argentina Sweden 10.40% Colombia Poland 16.40% Venezuela
  • 14. A NOTE ON THE POSITIVE SIDEResearch is strong and on going in the fight of Emphysema. How to measure airspace enlargement accurately How to define aging of the lung There are studies showing promise that changing ones diet to include olive oil, fish, and grapes, peanuts, and berries (sources of resveratrol) may limit the lung damage caused by smoking.
