Pulmonology & Respiratory Diseases
The respiratory system is made up of the organs in the body that help you to breath. The goal of breathing is to deliver oxygen and to take away carbon dioxide from the body. The respiratory system includes the lungs, trachea, bronchi and diaphragm, which is the dome shaped muscle at the bottom of the lungs.
Damage to the respiratory system occurs due to multiple factors like infection, pollution, allergy or smoking.
