When the lung is affected it becomes filled with fluid, stiff and has difficulty doing its job of getting oxygen into the body, and carbon dioxide ( our waste gas) out. This is called ards..

You : You could be having a reaction to whatever was put on the wound yesterday, but the first thing i would be concerned about is it becoming infected. Infection would cause swelling, and in the presence of a compression dressing, this would certainly increase your pain on top of the usual pain from an infection. If your doctor has office hours today, i would recommend you go there and wait, because he really must see you today. If he has no hours, call his office and let them know you're going to the er, preferably at the same hospital he or she is doing surgery today, so he or she can pop down to the er between cases and have a look. Good luck. Hope this helped. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If this tube is in place for prolonged periods, it damages the lining of the trachea and can lead to tracheal stenosis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
