Respiratory disease is a medical term that encompasses pathological conditions affecting the organs and tissues that make gas exchange possible in higher organisms, and includes conditions of the upper respiratory tract, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli, pleura and pleural cavity, and the nerves and muscles of breathing.

Pulmonary function tests include spirometry (which measures ventilation of the lungs), DLCO tests (which measure gas diffusion in the lungs), ABG tests (which measure the partial pressure of oxygen, PaO 2, and carbon dioxide, PaCO 2, in the arterial blood), and pulse oximetry (which measures oxygen saturation, SpO 2, of peripheral blood hemoglobin).

The respiratory system is the organs and other parts of your body involved in breathing, when you exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide.

-Any breakdown in the ability of the pump to function will result in a smaller total lung capacity (restrictive lung disease). Neuromuscular disease is an example of this, as is severe kyphoscoliosis.

-Diseases which increase inward recoil of the lung (pulmonary fibrosis) will lead to a smaller TLC. Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are a group of tests that measure how well your lungs work. PFTs are also known as spirometry or lung function : Janelle Martel.
