The most common symptoms of
pneumoconiosis are shortness of breath and
cough. The risk is generally observed higher when people have been exposed to
mineral dusts in high concentrations and/or for long periods of time. Inadequate or inconsistent
use of personal
protective equipment (PPE) such as respirators (specially
fitted protective masks) is another risk factor since preventing dusts from
being inhaled will also prevent pneumoconiosis. Pneumoconiosis does not
generally occur from environmental (non-workplace) exposures since dust levels
in the environment are much lower. Patients having pneumoconiosis may have no
symptoms at all, particularly early in the disease. Later on
symptoms include , with or without mucous (sputum) production,
or chest tightness. Many
patients complain of . Patients may first
notice getting more breathless or winded with activity, like walking or
climbing stairs. Some patients may feel breathless even when they are at rest. . If pneumoconiosis involves a large part of the lungs or causes a lot of scarring, oxygen may be prevented
from easily reaching the blood during breathing. This results in hypoxia that is low oxygen levels. Hypoxia may only be present during activity or
while sleeping. Hypoxia may be present all
the time if pneumoconiosis is severe or
progresses. Many patients with hypoxia do not know that their oxygen levels are
low because hypoxia itself does not
always cause symptoms like breathlessness.This
results in Hypoxia that
is low oxygen levels reaching to the tissue. Hypoxia may only be present during
activity or while sleeping. Hypoxia may be present
all the time if pneumoconiosis
is severe or progresses. Many patients with Hypoxia do not know
that their oxygen levels are low because Hypoxia itself does not
always cause symptoms like breathlessness. Oxygen
in the blood delivers oxygen to all the internal
organs, so recognizing hypoxia is important to
prevent stress on other organs, like the heart and brain. Pneumoconiosis also
silicosis and coal worker's pneumoconiosis.
pneumoniosis is sometimes called as "Black Lung Disease"
because charcoal dust in the lungs can turn them
black in color.
