- What Are Pleural Disorders?Pleural disorders are conditions that affect the tissue that covers the outside of the lungs and lines the inside of your chest cavity. The tissue is called the pleura, and the thin space between its two layers is called the pleural space. A small amount of fluid fills the pleural space, and when you breathe in and out, this fluid helps the pleural layers glide smoothly against each other.
- CAN IMMUNOTHERAPY HELP WITH THE TREATMENT OF ALLERGIC ASTHMA?If you have allergic asthma and symptoms worsen after exposure to certain allergens, you may be a candidate for allergy shots. Research suggests that allergy shots may offer a small improvement in quality of life, symptom control, and could reduce the amount of asthma medication you take.
