Are Natural Remedies For Collapsed Lung Safe
Need to know cause: Briefly collapse lung can occur if bronchial tubes are blocked and the lung collapses since no air can get in. If the bronchial tube obstruction is simply mucous then it can loosen with hydration and cough. If it is solid a piece of food or tumor then it will not come out. Lung collapse can occur if there is fluid or air between the lung and chest wall. A chest xray/chest ct is a good start.See 1 more doctor answer
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
I had a collapsed lung 3 weeks ago, now again I have the pain in my back that I had before treatment, can it be the lung collapsing again, thank you?
Could be: Are you having trouble breathing, if so you may have a recurrence of spontaneous pneumothorax. Visit your nearest emergency room and enroll in programs to help you quit smoking. As long your you smoke, you will always be at risk for spontaneous pneumothoraces.
Collapsed lunghad markers placed in liver 3 weeks ago had collapsed lung, treatment chest tube, could it reoccur?
Unlikely: If due to the test and needles, it is unlikely to recur. Spontaneous pneumo does have a significant spontaneous recurrence rate.See 1 more doctor answer
Great Question: And I have a better answer: unlike the american bison, most mammals have two separate pleural or lung cavities. If one lung collapses, the problem does not usually affect the other side. This is why bison were easy to hunt. If you hit one side of the chest, both lungs could collapse. The picture shows human anatomy, wish I could also post a bison picture as they are majestic creatures.
Can one have small collapsed lung with few symptoms. Could this spontaneous collapse be deadly? Some studies say that progression to tension is rare.
Open lungs up: Atelectasis of lung means there is no air iin a portion of lung. This occurs if a branch of the bronchi leading to that part of the lung is blocked by mucous/phlegm or even a foreign body (like an aspirated piece of food for example). Often use of cough, bronchodilators can open bronchi up and clear phlegm or a bronchoscope can be used to suction it out.
Completed treatment for rectal cancer. Scans good, last pelvic scan saw scar/atelectasis bottom one lung. Had bad cold when scan was done. What??

Collapsed lung: Flying after a collapse lung is safe depending on the following: 1. You must usually wait at least 6 weeks 2. It depends on whether you are flying commercial or general aviation. If the later, it depends on how high you plan to fly. 3. It depends on how the lung collapse was treated and how effective the treatment was. 4.

Not usual: Alcohol does not generally have direct impact on pneumothorax per se. However, over all care may be impacted. If your pneumothorax is being treated, you may be on medications that should not mix with alcohol. If your pneumothorax is being observed for worsening or recurrence, you should not drink as may mask your symptoms. Discuss with your thoracic surgeon your case specifics.See 1 more doctor answer
I had a chest x-ray due to ongoing, severe, SOB. The conclusion was asymmetric density in LLL, nonspecific & could reflect atelectasis, or developing airspace disease. Is the remedy truly just to breathe deeper?
Not really: It is important to determine the cause of that density. It may be necessary to have a CT to be certain nothing is in the lungs that may need treatment. Talk to your doctor to see what your next step may be.See 1 more doctor answer
Technically maybe: Up to 10+% of spontaneous pneumothoraces may be completely without symptoms. It is believed many patients with mild or no symptoms may remain at home and not seek medical assistance. Patients with small, asymptomatic pneumothorax, may be sent home after short evaluation and repeat x-ray in er and no other interventions.See 2 more doctor answers
Yes, usually: A small air leak might seal itself off and not cause problems, but a truly collapsed lung should cause severe problems within minutes to hours
Yes: Although there is 25-30% chance it may happen again. Smoking cessation is essential.
Grades of the same: Atelectasis (from the latin for imperfect extension) can refer to collapse of a small portion of the lung (called a segment or subsegment) or to collapse of an entire lung. It can be due to obstruction of an airway. Depending on the level of the airway (whether a main bronchus or a smaller bronchiole) depends on the amount of lung that collapses.
Investigate: Best not to leave lung collapsed if possible. Need bronchoscope and possibly Ct or MRI to evaluate cause of collapse and decide on solution. May be simple as allowing air outside lung to be absorbed and reexpand lung by breathing exercise or may need drainage by catheter or even scope surgery to get lung re-expanded.
