The function of the lung is to obtain oxygen from the air so that it can be used by the cells, which is essential for the life of the cells. However, the selection of oxygen from the air requires delivery through the airways, which should continue non-stop throughout the lifetime. This means that various kinds of particles or chemicals contained in the air should be filtered continuously during their passage of the airways. Such situation can develop some pathology of the lung through interactions between the inhaled particles/chemicals and the cells in the lung, which becomes increasingly serious with an increase in air pollution. The third of this four lecture series will focus on four major pulmonary diseases–asthma, COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, and cystic fibrosis-with an emphasis on the pathophysiology.
