A healthy lung

A healthy lung supplies enough oxygen to keep the body functioning normally. Because there is no coughing and breathing is easy, exercising and exercising enough for other activities is a symptom of a healthy lung.


The purpose of lungs is to supply oxygen to the body. Air entering through the nose and mouth reaches the lungs through the trachea and bronchi. When you enter the left and right lungs, the bronchial tubes are divided into small tubes and small tubes that end up in small air bags (called alveoli). The capillaries on the alveolar surface exchange carbon dioxide for oxygen and then supply oxygen to the heart for blood circulation.


In healthy lungs, all parts work together to protect the lungs and provide a sufficient amount of oxygen to the body. The bronchial tubes leading to the lungs are lined with cilia, and there are small hairs that spread mucus throughout the system. This mucus enters the lungs and catches dust and other irritants before it blocks oxygen uptake. The diaphragm, the muscle connected to the lungs, pulls down to draw air into the lungs of the lungs. Once in the lungs, the air moves to the 300 million alveoli where oxygen is delivered to the bloodstream.


Many factors can harm the health of your lungs. Hereditary and chronic diseases such as cystic fibrosis and asthma have direct effects on the lungs and can be life-threatening without proper treatment. Inflammation caused by viruses and infections is also a common blow to lung health. Chest cold, bronchitis and pneumonia all temporarily impair healthy lung function. Diseases such as lung cancer and emphysema can be cured if detected early, but in most cases they are a major cause of lung injury and death.


Simple measures can improve the health of your lungs. One of the most effective ways to improve lung health is to avoid smoking cigarettes. Direct smoking and secondhand smoke have an adverse effect on lung health. In addition to lung cancer and emphysema, smoke inhalation causes pulmonary irritation, increases mucus levels, and aggravates conditions such as asthma. You can also improve the health of your lungs through hygiene control that prevents respiratory infections. Handwashing is the most effective means of avoiding sickness and infection. Other ways to keep your lungs healthy include home cleanliness, mildew removal, and a clean air environment. A healthy lung is the most important factor in sustaining the body’s respiratory system. If you have a number of major diseases associated with your lungs’ overall health status, such as asthma or lung cancer, you should consider the health of your lungs when making your life decisions.
