, I want to ask, is lung collapse a disease or just a lung condition? thank you

1 Answer:

Hi.

lung collapse or commonly referred to as atelectasis is a condition in which the lung cannot expand or collapse. Atelectasis is an abnormal condition in the lungs. However, atelectasis is caused due to the presence of another underlying disease such as:

COPD / chronic obstructive pulmonary disease congenital disorder RDS / respiratory distress syndrome pulmonary infection lung tumors If there is lung collapse, the lungs cannot expand, so the lungs cannot absorb oxygen properly, so it can cause the body to lack oxygen. The body will feel weak, tight, faint.

Therefore, to diagnose an atelectasis requires a direct physical examination by a doctor, and additional tests such as blood tests, X-rays, CT scans are needed.

There are a few articles you can read about atelectasis

may be useful. Thank you
