Diseases of the respiratory system accounts for up to a third of deaths in most countries and for a major proportion of visits to the doctor and time away from work or school, because the respiratory system (Lung) is directly exposed to environment. After the HIV epidemic tuberculosis is again the number one killer among the opportunistic infectious diseases in the world and in India. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among the cancers and the COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease) is the fourth in mortality next to myocardial infection, cancers, and accidents. Sleep apnea syndrome is an under diagnosed illness as this leads to cardiovascular, cerebrovascular and metabolic problems like hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, heart attacks, stroke and diabetes mellitus. In India, asthma is an under diagnosed and under treated condition because of stigma, initial cost factor and difficulty in carrying and using the inhaler device.
Purposes of Special Chest Clinics are to create awareness and utility of services among the population about respiratory morbidity and mortality and to diagnose the disease early and to prevent the complications and sequelae.
