A rare lung disease often terminal, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is an interstitial lung disease affecting the lung interstitium. Patients diagnosed with IPF suffer an extreme lung deterioration resulting a decline in the lung functioning. IPF causes 'pulmonary fibrosis', which basically means damaging of the lung tissues. Breathing distress is the most common intricacy involved with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
The cause of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis still remains unknown, however, it is mostly linked with excessive inhalation of smoke or dust, exposure to unhealthy gases and chemicals and smoking of cigarettes. IPF may also be caused due to genetic predisposition or develop from other lung condition.
Some of the medical conditions, which may develop in a patient with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) include obstructive sleep apnea, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, coronary artery disease and gastro oesophagal reflux disease. A set of guidelines has been released for managing such conditions accordingly.
