Respiratory Diseases

There are several respiratory diseases that affect an individual’s ability to breathe, making day-to-day activities difficult and severely impacting an individual’s quality of life. At CenterLight Health System, our healthcare team is able to ease the breathing difficulties caused by respiratory diseases.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

According to the American Lung Association, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. COPD includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Most patients have a combination of both. COPD patients might have a cough with mucus, tiredness, shortness of breath and wheezing. This may limit a patient’s ability to perform everyday activities. The specialists at CenterLight Health System provide patients with the therapies necessary to ease breathing.

Asthma

Asthma is a disease in which an individual’s airways swell, causing coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and tightness in the chest. Treatment includes avoiding smoking as well as substances such as chemical fumes and allergens that can trigger an asthma attack, and minimizing the inflammation when attacks do occur. With treatment, most people with asthma are able to lead normal lives. The CenterLight Health System healthcare providers are able to help patients manage their asthma, limiting the number of attacks and minimizing the severity of attacks when they occur.

Bronchitis

Bronchitis is inflammation in the bronchial tubes (the tubes that carry air into the lungs). Those most at risk for bronchitis include the elderly, smokers, those with weakened immune systems and employees with exposure to chemicals that irritate the lungs. Symptoms of bronchitis include coughing and wheezing. The healthcare team at CenterLight Health System has the expertise and experience to help patients recover from bronchitis.

Emphysema

Emphysema is a disease that prevents oxygen from entering your bloodstream. The primary cause of emphysema is smoking. Emphysema makes breathing difficult. This disease also affects one’s ability to carry out day-to-day activities. The healthcare professionals at CenterLight Health System assist patients in managing their emphysema, improving their quality of life.

We offer residential care for individuals with respiratory diseases in our four skilled nursing facilities. Services for those individuals are also integrated into many of our other programs. Please call us at 718-636-1000 for more information to determine which program is right for you.
