SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ A cryptogenic disease is a disease of which the cause is unknown. It may be used in a particular case, when the nature of the patient's condition is known but the cause has not been found (e.g. cryptogenic stroke). The word cryptogenic also appears in the names of some disease entities, when the situation is sufficiently common to be considered a diagnosis in its own right (e.g. cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis). Cryptogenic, idiopathic and primary may all be used in both these senses, but cryptogenic is more likely to be used where there is presumed to be a simple cause but this happens to have eluded discovery. Cryptogenic is used in this technical sense in the description of epilepsy syndromes (although the distinction has now been officially abandoned). In practice, the term cryptogenic is largely restricted to certain specific conditions. These include: diseases of the lung: cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis, cryptogenic organizing pneumonia. diseases of the liver: cryptogenic cirrhosis, cryptogenic hepatitis. diseases of the brain: cryptogenic stroke, cryptogenic epilepsy.

What is Pulmonary Fibrosis? - Dr. Hirennappa B Udnur
 
01:19
Pulmonary fibrosis is a vague terminology where a group of diseases which causes pulmonary fibrosis have been terminated as pulmonary fibrosis. There are 6 to 7 variants in pulmonary fibrosis, overall to the general public, pulmonary fibrosis means fibrosing of the lung, which is normally an elastic structure. But gets fibrosed because of many known and unknown causes. Sometimes we don’t even know what causes the fibrosis and the incidence of this is increasing and here the disease affected, patients will not be able to breathe, they will have executional breathlessness and symptoms which ultimately affects the oxygenation of the lung. So he has to suffer and become more debilitated and respiratory crippled.
What is the Life Expectancy and Outlook for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
 
04:38
What is the Life Expectancy and Outlook for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. Idiopathic pneumonic fibrosis (IPF) is a ceaseless lung sickness that includes the development of scar tissue somewhere inside the lungs, between the air sacs. This harmed lung tissue turns out to be hardened and thick, making it troublesome for your lungs to work proficiently. The subsequent trouble in breathing prompts bring down levels of oxygen in the circulation system. As a rule, the life expenctancy with IPF is around three to five years. What's in store. At the point when looked with another analysis, it's normal to have heaps of inquiries. You're most likely pondering what you can expect regarding your anticipation and future. Standpoint. Since IPF is an incessant, dynamic sickness, you'll have it for whatever remains of your life. All things considered, the anticipation for individuals with IPF can change incredibly. While a few people may wind up wiped out rapidly, others may advance all the more gradually finished the course of quite a long while. By and large, there are a few side effects that are regular among individuals with IPF. Shortness of Breath. With IPF, your lungs aren't filling in as they should, and your body reacts to the absence of oxygen in your circulatory system by influencing you to feel like you have to inhale more. This triggers a shortness of breath, particularly amid times of expanded action. Over the long haul, you'll most likely begin to feel this same windedness notwithstanding amid times of rest. Weariness. Low levels of oxygen in the blood can tire you out, abandoning you feeling depleted and for the most part unwell. This sentiment tiredness might be exacerbated on the off chance that you look to keep away from physical movement since you would prefer not to feel shy of breath. Hacking. A dry, hacking hack is a continuous objection among IPF patients. You may encounter "hacking fits," where you can't control your hack for a few minutes. This can be extremely tiring, and can influence you to feel like you can't get a breath by any stretch of the imagination. You might be more inclined to hacking fits when: *you're practicing or playing out any kind of movement that abandons you shy of breath. *you're feeling enthusiastic, snickering, crying, or talking. *you're in conditions with higher temperature or mugginess. *you're in closeness or come into contact with toxins or different triggers like clean, smoke, or solid scents. Aspiratory Hypertension. Aspiratory hypertension is hypertension in the lungs. This can happen in light of the diminished oxygen level in your blood. Since hypertension influences your heart to work harder than typical, it can prompt heart disappointment if oxygen levels don't make strides. Weight reduction. It can be difficult to eat well with IPF. Biting and gulping nourishment can make breathing more troublesome, and eating complete suppers can influence your stomach to feel awkwardly full and increment the workload of your lungs. Along these lines, it's vital to eat supplement thick nourishment as opposed to garbage sustenance. You may think that its accommodating to eat littler measures of nourishment more every now and again instead of three, bigger suppers also. Propelling Complications. As your condition propels, you'll be at expanded hazard forever undermining entanglements, including: *heart assault and stroke. *pulmonary embolism (blood clusters in the lungs). *respiratory disappointment. *heart disappointment. *serious contaminations in the lungs. Future: Future can likewise fluctuate in patients with IPF. Your own future is probably going to be impacted by the movement of your infection and the power of your manifestations. You might have the capacity to build the three to five year term time, and enhance the nature of your life, by conversing with your specialist about approaches to deal with your manifestations and your ailment movement. There's no cure for IPF, yet inquire about through the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute is attempting to bring issues to light of the sickness, fund-raise for research, and lead clinical trials to scan for an existence sparing cure.

How is Pulmonary Fibrosis diagnosed? - Dr. Hirennappa B Udnur
 
05:26
The gold standard for diagnosing or even knowing early sign of pulmonary fibrosis are available is HRCT, high resolution CT scan , where we see a basal predominant bilateral reticulonodular shadows, along with changes of honeycombing and architectural distortion with lot of gradient, which is more and basal predominant, that is classical of UIP pattern, which is the more histopathological variant of this kind of finding is very very important to make radiological diagnosis of UIP because 99% it says that it is idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and you can see the UIP pattern in rheumatoid arthritis and scleroderma also. So this is important finding in HRCT and any interstitial thickening, nodular shadows, we can detect in a high resolution CT scan. The initial suspicion when it comes is after having an oxygenation drop in the clinical examination and we see the x-rays which can be ruled out as being normal. Sometimes we can see a reticulonodular saddle and on clinical examination crepits or clubbing and if it is not explained very easily by any other things, then we go for HRCT, where we nearly, unless certain atypical pneumonia or bronchopneumonia, they mimic like that. With certain interstitial lung disease or acute pulmonary fibrosis are there, then the variant of that or LIP’s and other things can be detected in a radiology. But sometimes if it is a Non-UIP or atypical presentations of UIP, like nonspecific interstitial pneumonia and who have a characteristic finding in HRCT, like reverse yellow sign and other things will be there. So basically it is that and 6 minute walk test, pulmonary function test and advanced lung function tests, which reconfirms. Pulmonary function tests in a basic spirometry shows as a restrictive pattern. Sometimes if he is a smoker and associated COPD, they can have a mixed pattern and when we do the advanced lung function, usually the lung volumes are reduced and it is miniature of the normal spirometry and the diffusion limitations will be there. So if you get an echo finding, if an early fibrosis is there, early pulmonary artery hypertension features are seen. 6 minute walk test, can have exercise hypoxia and those things will be there and to conform the diagnosis of connective tissue disorders related ILD’s, we can do AN or Anti-Nuclear Antibody Screening and Rheumatoid Arthritis Factor Screening. So if you find a serological positive and if it is compatible, we can treat without even going for biopsy. Like these are being diagnosed, sometimes we have difficulty, when the serology is negative and when the patient is fit enough and young and we have ruled out any other vasculitis like ANCA and any other infections have been ruled out, we may resort to doing a bronchoscopy to rule out alternate pathologies like tuberculosis or unusual organisms or atypical infections. Along with that, sometimes we do a conventional transbroncial lung biopsy, which is slightly risky with pneumothorax and pathologist not been available, who having the proper lung pathogenesis like UIP and NSIP patterns and the new kid in the block is cryolung biopsy, which is called a cryotransbronchial lung biopsy, where a cryoprobe is used and tissue has been architectural distortion or a big tissue is been found on a biopsy tissue or on a lung biopsy, which a pulmonologist or an interventional pulmonologist can do and most of the centers don’t have at the present and few advanced centers can afford to have a cryobiopsies and the risk of pneumothorax and bleeding are high, and usually these patients are of sick classes will be there and elderly and comorbidities will be there and sometimes risks and benefits of doing the transbronchial lung biopsy has to be seen. The best way or the gold standard way of getting a diagnosis is open lung biopsy, which is usually done by either a wax or an open thoracotomy. Usually surgeons do it and we get a good tissue, but most of these patients have not been fit for undergoing the biopsy and usually whenever we subject the person for a biopsy, we always look at a non invasive way of doing a diagnosis. We will not be able to do it and since we have to follow these guidelines, because there are new treatment modalities which are available and the guidelines keep changing from 2011 to 2015 or 2017 because the treatment modalities are different and it is absolutely a grave disease. In that way the diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis are being made.

Lung Disease: Pulmonary Fibrosis
 
04:31
Learn about pulmonary fibrosis, a set of diseases that cause progressive scarring inside the lungs. Over time the lungs are slowly replaced with scar tissue, which causes airways to restrict airflow, making it difficult to breath and to get enough oxygen. Doctors, patients and researchers are hoping clinical trials will lead to a drug that prevents lung function from worsening ultimately allowing patients to live longer.

They are shortness of breath, chest discomfort, dry coughing, weakness, fatigue, weight loss because of losing appetite. Fibrosis of Lungs Treatments Until today, it is a fact that no such treatments or medications for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis that can give significant improvement on the patient's condition. The scarring that has been developed is permanent. According to the research, the immune system in our body seems to give significant contribution on this condition. That is the similarity that has been found in many forms of pulmonary fibrosis. Based on this founding, then the medication that has been prescribed to the patients is corticosteroids, such as prednisone. This Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drug is known as immune suppressive agent for slowing down the lung inflammation and scarring. http://www.takebackyourhealth.com/blog/ http://www.takebackyourhealth.com/articles.html

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

This video is a community project by Rainbow Across Borders. Mr Ijas Ali passed away in 2017 shortly after this video was filmed. He has made a significant impact in moving IPF forward in Singapore. We are grateful and honoured to have met Mr Ijas Ali in this journey to improve care for IPF patients. - About IPF - Pulmonary fibrosis (PF), the most common type of interstitial lung disease, is characterised by thick and stiff tissue that turns into scar tissue over time. Because of the increasing presence of scar tissue in the lungs, the organ is not able to properly transport oxygen into the bloodstream. When the blood does not get enough oxygen, symptoms result including shortness of breath; persistent, dry and hacking cough; fatigue; unexplained weight loss; aching muscles and joints; and clubbing of the fingertips. While the majority of pulmonary fibrosis cases are classified as IDIOPATHIC, meaning the cause is not fully understood, there are numerous reasons known that contribute to the disease development. These include: occupational and environmental exposure to pollutants, specific medication or drugs, radiation therapy, some connective tissue diseases and interstitial lung disease. Treatments for pulmonary fibrosis include medicines, oxygen therapy, pulmonary rehabilitation, or a lung transplant. Pulmonary fibrosis is a progressive and life-threatening disease with a poor prognosis. Patients with pulmonary fibrosis frequently need to be hospitalised with respiratory problems and often experience subacute deterioration before passing on. Ischemic heart disease, heart failure, bronchogenic carcinoma, infection and pulmonary embolism are also common causes of mortality among these patients.
Usual interstitial pneumonia
 
03:45
Usual interstitial pneumonia is a form of lung disease characterized by progressive scarring of both lungs. The scarring involves the supporting framework of the lung. UIP is thus classified as a form of interstitial lung disease. The term "usual" refers to the fact that UIP is the most common form of interstitial fibrosis. "Pneumonia" indicates "lung abnormality", which includes fibrosis and inflammation. A term previously used for UIP in the British literature is cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis, a term that has fallen out of favor since the basic underlying pathology is now thought to be fibrosis, not inflammation.

What is IDIOPATHY? What does IDIOPATHY mean? IDIOPATHY meaning, definition & explanation
 
02:46
What is IDIOPATHY? What does IDIOPATHY mean? IDIOPATHY meaning, definition & explanation. An idiopathy is any disease with unknown pathogenesis or apparently spontaneous origin. From Greek ????? idios "one's own" and ????? pathos "suffering", idiopathy means approximately "a disease of its own kind". For some medical conditions, one or more causes are somewhat understood, but in a certain percentage of people with the condition, the cause may not be readily apparent or characterized. In these cases, the origin of the condition is said to be idiopathic. With some other medical conditions, the root cause for a large percentage of all cases have not been established—for example, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis or ankylosing spondylitis; the majority of these cases are deemed idiopathic. With other conditions, idiopathic cases account for only a small percentage (for example, pulmonary fibrosis). Advances in medical science improve etiology (the study of causes of diseases) and nosology (the classification of diseases); thus, regarding any particular condition or disease, as more root causes are discovered, and as events that seemed spontaneous have their origins revealed, the percentage of cases designated as idiopathic decreases. The word essential is sometimes synonymous with idiopathic (as in essential proteinuria or essential thrombocythemia), and the same is true of primary (as in primary biliary cirrhosis or primary amenorrhea), with the latter term being used in such cases to contrast with secondary in the sense of "secondary to some other condition." Another, less common synonym is agnogenic (agno-, "unknown" + -gen, "cause" + -ic). The word cryptogenic (crypto-, "hidden" + -gen, "cause" + -ic) has a sense that is synonymous with idiopathic and a sense that is contradistinguished from it. Some congenital conditions are idiopathic, and sometimes the word congenital is used synonymously with idiopathic; but careful usage prefers to reserve the word congenital for conditions to which the literal sense of the word applies (that is, those whose pathophysiology has existed since the neonatal period).

NHS Innovations in Health - The Breath of Life: IPF
 
13:40
Pulmonary Fibrosis is a disease in which tissue deep in your lungs becomes thick and stiff, or scarred, over time. The formation of scar tissue is called fibrosis. As the lung tissue thickens, your lungs can't properly move oxygen into your bloodstream. As a result, your brain and other organs don't get the oxygen they need. Sometimes doctors can find out what's causing fibrosis. But in most cases, they can't find a cause. They call these cases Idiopathic Pulmonary Ffibrosis, more commonly known as 'IPF'. IPF is a serious disease that usually affects middle-aged and older adults. IPF varies from person to person. In some people, fibrosis happens quickly. In others, the process is much slower. In some people, the disease stays the same for years. IPF has no cure yet. Many people live only about 3 to 5 years after diagnosis. The most common cause of death related to IPF is respiratory failure. Other causes of death include pulmonary hypertension, heart failure, pulmonary embolism, pneumonia, and lung cancer. Research has helped doctors learn more about IPF. As a result, they can more quickly diagnose the disease now than in the past. Also, researchers are studying several medicines that may slow the progress of IPF. These efforts may improve the lifespan and quality of life for people who have the disease. In this programme we hear the expert views of Roland Du Bois, Professor of Respiratory Medicine at Imperial College of London who discusses the challenges faced in managing IPF and his hopes for the newer approaches emerging to manage the disease. We also hear from Joseph McCool who gives a first hand account of living with and managing IPF.
