During the winter, respiratory health can become an increasing issue affecting the quality of life of many individuals. This can be related to a latent infection after influenza, pneumonia, and environmental factors. Indoor air pollution can also be a significant factor related to mold or increased saturation of allergens.

Salient symptoms of a lung inflammation condition typically include coughing, shortness of breath, fatigue, and weight loss as well as a lack of appetite. If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms and you live in the New York City area, you should consider scheduling a lung inflammation assessment at Dr. John Abroon’s Clinic on the Upper East Side.

Without professional diagnosis and treatment, the inflammation and fluid complications could cause scarring in the lung tissues and lead to potentially life threatening medical conditions.

The lung inflammation assessment starts with Dr. Abroon listening to your lungs as you breathe. If necessary, he might also perform some chest X-rays or other radiographic tests to determine the fluid volume affecting your respiration. He might also perform a blood test, spirometry, bronchoscopy, and a surgical lung biopsy if needed.

Once Dr. Abroon has fully assessed the severity and cause of your lung inflammation, he will develop a treatment strategy designed to improve your respiratory capacity, and alleviate discomfort. This might include oxygen therapy, prescription corticosteroids, and home remedies.

If your symptoms are representative of a lifestyle factor, such as household mold or other indoor air pollution sources, he might also provide you with remediation information. If you have been experiencing chronic symptoms of a lung inflammation condition, and you live in the New York City area you should call 212-288-0900 to schedule a lung inflammation assessment at Dr. Abroon’s clinic on the Upper East Side.
