Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Respiratory and circulatory system diseases are still a rising issue, especially in the ageing populations of the developed countries. The SARS-Cov-2 pandemic has shown us how our patients with respiratory and circulatory diseases are vulnerable when a new pathogenic factor arrives. Therefore, not only should we seek a way to protect the patients from the virus, but we should also do our best to gain knowledge on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of these chronic diseases.

Therefore, we would like to devote a Special Issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) to the current state of knowledge in the field of on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of respiratory and circulatory system diseases, with particular emphasis on the interaction between the cardiovascular and the respiratory system. We do not close our pages to all papers on the pathology of the cardiovascular system, although papers regarding cardiopulmonary disorders are especially welcome. We hope that this Special Issue will contribute to spreading the knowledge of these diseases, especially in times when affected patients are at extreme risk.
