Pulmonary fibrosis is a progressive lung disease caused by scarred tissue in the lungs. The thickening of this tissue makes it difficult to transport oxygen from the lungs, resulting in shortness of breath. Below is a list of informative books about the disease, compiled with help from alibris and Friesen Press and personal experiences from people who have lived with it.
1. “Breathing Should Never Be Hard Work” by Robert Davidson
This true story is about one man’s fight against the disease, and how he didn’t let it stop him living his life. It’s an interesting read about someone’s real experience living with PF.
2. “Pulmonary Fibrosis” by Sem H. Phan
This book is full of medical- and science-based information about the disease, studies into clinical practice and concepts on the pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis.
