, I want to ask what is meant by lung irritation and how dangerous is lung irritation?

1 Answer:

Hello Dannis,


Thank you for the question.

Lung irritation is not really a standard term in the medical world. But possibly, this term refers to pneumonitis.


Pneumonitis itself occurs when the lung tissue is inflamed due to causes other than infection (if it occurs due to infection, it is called pneumonia), for example due to the influence of drugs, fungal spores, components in the bird's body (such as feathers or dried stools), even radiation therapy. Clinically, pneumonitis often causes sufferers to experience shortness of breath, coughing, fatigue, weakness, loss of appetite, and weight can also decrease dramatically.


The danger or not this condition depends on the cause and severity. However, if not treated optimally, pneumonitis can trigger the formation of scar tissue around the lung parenchyma (pulmonary fibrosis), which makes it difficult for the lungs to expand when breathing and oxygen exchange in the lungs becomes disrupted. In severe cases, this condition can trigger right heart failure, respiratory failure, and even death.


That's all our explanation, hopefully answering your question. If not, don't hesitate to create a new thread, ok?


I hope this helps.
