Swelling of the Lungs. Hypertrophy of the Lungs.
This can hardly be regarded as a disease. It generally takes place in but one lung, and is the result of the inaction of the other. Thus, when one lung is diseased, the other has to do the work of both; and being overworked, it enlarges, as the heart or an arm does when very much exercised.
The only treatment required is to eat sparingly, and exercise with great moderation, so as not to increase the rapidity of the breathing.
