About Us
  • Oxygen in the air is essential for our life.
    Lung, like heart, is vital in delivering
    oxygenated blood to entire body. Lungs illness is
    often overlooked and diagnosed late unlike heart
    ailments. Awareness about lung illness is lacking
    among doctors as well as common man. Lung, like
    skin, is directly exposed to harmful
    environmental air pollutants and breathing cough
    problem is increasing day by day especially in
    the fast growing urban area of PCMC.

What is Asthma?
The medical definition says that it is a chronic
inflammatory disease of the airway which makes
breathing difficult. As the tubes that fill air
into the lungs swell, the patient gasps for
Oxygen and becomes incredibly restless. Asthma
triggers or allergens are responsible for the
swelling. Apple Pulmonology provides one of the
best Asthma Treatment in India . shortness of
breath, coughing, wheezing, and congestion in the
chest are the common symptoms. However, the
patterns may vary from patient to patient.

Breathing Process
  • When we breathe, the total process gets completed
    in two steps inhaling and exhaling. When we
    inhale the air through our nostrils, it traverses
    to the lungs via trachea or windpipe. As it goes
    further, it reaches to a mesh of branching
    airways called Bronchi. The bronchi branches into
    tiny bronchioles which subsequently gets branched
    into tiny air sacs. The sacs are millions in
    number.

  • Normal Breathing

Normal breathing, there is a small amount of
mucus in the airways. Muscles make contraction
and expansion movements smoothly, and there is no
interruption to the airflow. The body gets oxygen
in the required amount..

Asthmatic Breathing
  • In Asthmatic Breathing, high amount of mucus
    secretes, narrowing the airways. Smaller airways
    get completely choked by the mucus causing a
    shortage of air. Muscles constrict and narrow
    down the airways further

Asthmatic Lungs
  • When a person suffers from the attack of Asthma,
    the airways in the lungs get blocked completely,
    or they become narrow. It obstructs normal
    breathing and creates great discomfort. Since the
    condition can be reversed by medication, the
    disease is known as Reversible Obstructive Airway
    Disease. Experts say that Asthma is actually a
    reaction of the body to a particular or
    non-specific stimulating agent.

  • In Asthmatic lungs, airways lose the capability
    of constricting the irritant factors or stimuli.
    Asthmatic airways "overreact" to the irritant and
    contract. Also, these airways are more
    susceptible to infection that causes inflammation
    and over-production of mucus. Both of the aspects
    clog the airways further, and the situation
    becomes worst.
  • Due to obstructed airways, Asthmatic lungs can't
    exhale the stale air which has a high
    concentration of Carbon-dioxide. It increases the
    acidity in the blood which may reach to toxic
    levels if the ailment
