The pulmonary system is critical to human health. This system includes the lungs and breathing muscles like the diaphragm, and the respiratory system, which is part of the pulmonary system, is involved in a mechanism called respiration. The respiration process allows the organism to take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide into the environment.

As the most important system that allows all living organisms to survive, it also serves as a medium for the development of several risk factors that lead to various diseases or fatigue. Tobacco use, second-hand smoke, radon, occupational exposure, family history, chemical/gas disasters, allergens, air pollution, HIV/AIDS, airway anatomy, hypertension, birth effects, diet, obesity, and nutrition are the major risk factors.

However, Openventio aims at the widespread propagation of all matters related to the pulmonary and respiratory system through its Open Journal to the scientific community for its welfare and control.
