Smoking effects the respiratory system by the inhaling process of smoking. When people inhale smoke, they take in substances that can damage their lungs. Over time, this damage can cause serious lung conditions such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and lung cancer. Withdrawal from tobacco products can cause respiratory discomfort and temporary congestion as people’s lungs begin to heal. Smoking damages the cardiovascular system by nicotine causing the blood vessels to tighten up and this restricts the flow of blood.
Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide both can dissolve in water. I personally feel that it is because of humans acid rain is so harmful. Over the years humans have mixed and released so many some many different chemicals in the air. When power plants burn things like fossil fuels, like coal to get electricity they create and release more of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide. Other that cause acid rain are things like cars, trucks and buses because they also release
Introduction A chemical inhalation injury happens when a person breathes in (inhales) fumes or particles from chemicals that damage the throat, airways, or lungs (respiratory tract). Chemical inhalation injuries most often occur: During fires, when materials that are burned release chemicals into the environment. During work accidents, when large amounts of toxic chemicals are spilled at factories or industrial sites. Chemicals that may be harmful are also found in many common household cleaners and other products, such as: Aerosol sprays. Oven cleaners.
It is the long term inflammation of the lungs as a result of asbestos exposure. The complications as well may include the pulmonary heart disease. Asbestosis is caused when asbestos fibers are breathed in. The symptoms also include shortness of breathe, wheezing and chest pain. 3.
One of the most dangerous issues with air pollution is dust and soot. “African-Americans are about three times as likely to die from exposure to it” than the general population (Stein). Polluted air can destroy the ozone layer that protects us from the sun. The solution is applying and enforcing government regulations on pollution. I find it ironic that the air that you breathe in order to live can kill you.
Introduction Smoke inhalation means that you have breathed in smoke. Exposure to hot smoke from a fire can damage all parts of your airway including your nose, mouth, throat (trachea), and lungs. If you received a burn injury on the outside of your body from a fire, you are also at risk of having a smoke inhalation injury in your airways. What are the causes? This condition is caused by exposure to smoke in burning buildings.
Carbon dioxide is an asphyxiant with a density greater than air which leads it to accumulate in low or enclosed spaces, and asphyxiation fatalities will occur when there is a high concentration of CO2. In the room temperature, carbon dioxide is odourless and colourless which means that we are unable to smell or see it at the elevated concentrations. With the concentration of carbon dioxide, people will have headache and loss of consciousness, and inhale high density CO2 will cause death. Factors that could lead to leakage of carbon dioxide includes the damage to structures and equipment and improper maintenance of pipelines. Since there is a carbon dioxide compression process on site, the leakage is similar to a pressurised release and the leak of carbon dioxide is colder than the surrounding atmosphere (HSE, 2015).
There are many problems that threatens society and one problem in particular, air pollution is a problem that threatens everyone. Air pollution is the contamination of air with pollutants that are harmful to humans, animals, and the environment. It began to be a problem when humans discovered the uses of fire and then the amount of air pollution exponentially grew after the industrial revolution, and is still a problem even today. The largest causes of air pollution are from human activities such as burning of fossil fuels and gas emissions from manufacturing plants. There are ways that ordinary people can help contribute to prevent air pollution and or else face the dangerous consequences of polluted air.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a bad lung disease that makes it hard to breathe and it’s caused by damage to the lung. This disease is affecting a lot of people, Copd mostly comes from smoking over a time or breathing in smoke. Although exposure to air pollution in the home and workplace, genetic factors and respiratory infections also play a role in the disease. Copd consists of two types of disease which is emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Emphysema is a condition where the air sacs of the lung is enlarged or damage causing someone to be breathless.
The cells are permanently damaged from the smoke. When you vape and inhale the vapor from the device, the vapor coats the inside of the alveoli of the lungs where the nicotine, alcohol, vegetable oil, flavoring, and other ingredients are directly and immediately diffused into the blood. This immediate diffusion into the blood is very harmful because not only is the blood affected, but the tissue and the lungs are affected directly as well. The alcohol and the vegetable oil in the ‘vape juice’ can cause lung cancer and severe cough or
