Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
COPD is the name for a collection of lung diseases including chronic bronchitis, emphysema and chronic obstructive airways disease, all of which can occur together. COPD is one of the most common respiratory diseases in the UK and occurs as a result of damage to your lungs. It causes breathing problems which often gradually get worse, and can affect your quality of life and even cause heart failure.
Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA)
OSA causes interruptions in your breathing while you sleep.
Bronchiectasis is a condition where the small airways or tubes in the lungs have been damaged and dust, mucus and bacteria build up, leading to coughs, chest infections and breathing difficulties.
Interstitial lung disease (ILD)
ILD covers a group of lung conditions where the air sac in the lung is scarred and doesn't work as it should, preventing oxygen getting absorbed into your bloodstream properly. It includes conditions such as asbestosis and pulmonary fibrosis.
Type I respiratory failure
This means that your blood doesn't contain enough oxygen. We can prescribe oxygen for you, and regularly monitor your levels.
Type II respiratory failure
This condition is characterised by excessive amounts of carbon dioxide in your blood. It can be very dangerous, and the symptoms need to be treated promptly.
A pulmonary embolism is a blood clot in your lung. It needs to be monitored carefully. We will only see you once you're stable and have been discharged from hospital.
Primary immune deficiency
If you have primary immune deficiency, you lack the ability to fight infection. You'll need lifelong treatment to replace the missing components of your immune system.
Respiratory support for neuro-muscular conditions
A very broad term that encompasses many diseases and ailments that impair the functioning of the muscles. Neuromuscular diseases are those that affect the muscles and/or their direct nervous system control.
