A 70 year old with breathing difficulties due to moving to high elevated place
Direct cause: Presence of viral infection,staying in invested area with infection especially the older people make them to be attacked by infection than young people due to their weaked immunity.
Indirect cause: Sedentary lifestyle,if elderly stay a way that they don't do anything the will finally experience difficulty in breathing.
Direct cause: Age, as you age meaning the more years you have you experience difficulty to breath due to straining to take in air.
Indirect cause;High altitude. Most elderly when move to high area most of them have COPD, this condition will hinder them from being unable to breath since they have to need a lot energy to breath in air.
sedentary life will bring many diseases to the elderly like obesity and heart disease.
It can cause death abruptly if not attended with medical professional especially those elderly with COPD.
It can cause a stroke. This is because their will be no enough oxygen in the system to ensure everything work properly.
poor circulation of nutrients into other parts of the body. This is because aged people some of their organs have shutdown or they dont function properly.
Cell: 2. Alveoli cell.They help to get oxygen into the blood and get out carbon dioxide from the bloodstreem
Cell: 3. They are the primary phagocytes of innate immune system that help to clear air spaces of infectious, toxic, or allergic particles that have evaded mechanical defence of respiratory tract.
Organ: 1. Lungs- They act as site for gaseous exchange known as respiration
Effects of inflammation on the respiratory system
It trigger or cause Asthma, COPD, lung cancer, and granulomatous lung diseases. In simple terms it can be defined as an inflammation of the respiratory tract.
Cell: 2. Alveoli cell. They are tiny, balloon-shaped air sacs that sit at the very end of respiratory tree and are arranged in clusters.
Cell: 3. Alveolar macrophage they are in close contact with type 1 and 2 epithelial cell
Organ: 1 lungs- They are a pair of highly elastic and spongy organs.
It states that the rate of diffusion of a gas across a permeable membrane is determined by chemical nature of the membrane itself, the surface area of the membrane, the partial pressure gradient of gas a cross the membrane, and the thickness of the membrane.
Partial pressure is independent of the pressure exerted by all other gases present.The decrease or its elevation of oxygen in the alveolar space result in lessened gradient which reduces the partial pressure of oxygen in the blood
