Pulmonary Fibrosis

Pulmonary fibrosis is where the lungs become scarred and causes the intricate pulmonary passageways to thicken and harden. Thick hard passage ways will not allow oxygen to pass freely through the tiny air sacs located in the walls of the lungs. The lack of oxygen in the bloodstream leaves individuals with pulmonary fibrosis and a feeling of being short of breath even after rest.

Pulmonary fibrosis affects everyone a bit different. Some will have the fibrosis develop quite rapidly and others will have a slow progression occur over time . Doctors will often prescribe medications, inhalers and oxygen therapy. Alternative treatments such as cellular therapy is also available.
