When people can breathe, the lungs are the most important contributor. Therefore, when the lungs have problems, breathing will also be hindered and prone to some problems, which may lead to difficulty in breathing, or in serious cases, the phenomenon of not being able to breathe, and some people even need to rely on ventilators to hold on.
In recent years, the incidence of lung diseases is also on the rise, among them,the high incidence of lung cancer and mortality is relatively high, but also let more people pay attention to lung health, some people say that the biggest enemy of lung injury is tobacco, undeniably, tobacco is very harmful to the lungs, in addition to smoking, there are many behaviors you do not care about, but also continue to hurt the lungs.
1.How exactly do the lungs break down step by step?
Frequent exposure to pollutants
Here to say the pollutants, from many places, smoke is only one of the pollutants, however, it is necessary to emphasize that smoke, may be released from tobacco, but also may be released from oil smoke.
And these two kinds of smoke, in life, is also easy to close contact with, people around constantly smoking, or their long-term smoking habits of sucking, will also be frequently exposed to smoke, and the lungs will absorb more harmful substances.
Oil smoke, it is reasonable to say that after the hood, the amount of inhalation of oil smoke should be reduced by a lot, but some people save the habit, maybe to save electricity, frequent closure of the hood, can not all absorb the oil smoke, resulting in more lung inhalation of oil smoke, thus bringing damage to the lungs.
In addition to fumes, tobacco, but also needs to pay attention to the pollutants in the atmosphere, as well as some construction sites, and factories the pollutants produced, by the human body inhaled too much, are likely to induce lung disease.
Lung damage and viruses are also a factor that should not be ignored. After the lungs are invaded by viruses, it is easy to form some damage, so the lung function is gradually reduced, and if the damage is serious, respiratory failure may occur.
For example, we are now facing a virus, the new crown, with which we have been fighting for almost 3 years, although compared with the beginning, it has been greatly controlled, in the end, there is no way to find a complete solution to it.
After infection with the new crown virus, the lung fiber tissue damage is more serious, and will also affect breathing, severe patients will have severe breathing difficulties, which will cause lung infections and other infections.
Not only the new coronavirus but also the influenza virus, are aggressive viruses, as long as they are infected, the damage is relatively large, can not do a good job of prevention, it may cause more damage to the lungs.
2.How will the body behave when the lungs are bad?
Hands – abnormal fingers
When the lungs have problems, the hands will have abnormal performance, the more common problems, the fingernail color may be black, and will easily appear finger pain phenomenon.
In the case of insufficient blood oxygen, the fingers will also appear edema and stiffness. Another point worth noting is that the fingers become strange, the fingernails are deformed, the fingers are also deformed, there will be a significant bump phenomenon, and the curvature of the nails will change, which is often referred to as pestle fingers in medicine.
Breathing – stuffy chest pain and difficulty in breathing
The lungs are the master of respiration, and when there is relatively large damage to the lungs, it may also affect the lung function, especially during sleep and after a change in position, it will be more likely to show signs of abnormality.
Frequent coughing, chest pain, and difficulty in breathing may occur at night. The frequency of such signs is relatively high, so you should keep an eye out for some diseases in the lungs, and need a detailed examination of the lungs in time.
Nose – runny nose, dry nasal cavity
The lungs are also connected to the nasal cavity. If there is a problem with the lungs, it may affect the nasal cavity, which is prone to nasal dryness, or cold in the nasal cavity, which may cause problems such as easy fire and nosebleeds.
May also be cold, and the phenomenon of a runny nose may also appear as rhinitis, constant will sneeze, if these problems occur regularly, need to promptly rank the lungs.
