A respiratory disease can affect the lungs, bronchus, or upper respiratory tract. Symptoms of a respiratory disease include wheezing, shortness of breath, spasms, coughing, or blood in your sputum. Respiratory diseases may be acute, such as in an infection, or they may become chronic. Some of the most common respiratory diseases are asthma, COPD, bronchitis, pneumonia, and pulmonary hypertension. Prevention is key to a healthy respiratory system.
