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
Wet cough, stuffy nose for 2 months (thick green/white phlegm). Don't smoke, no fever, no allergie, blood test ok, xray ok, no sinus inf.
See a doctor: It sounds like you have seen doctors. How you can be sure you do not have an allergy is beyond me. Suggest that you try nasal saline rinses twice a day with a neti-pot (see your pharmacist), and perhaps combine that with a nasal steroid spray. If you are a smoker or around second hand smoke, stop. The material you bring up needs to be examined, and you need a face to face with a caring doctor. ...Read more

Had common cold with fever. Fever gone now, just nasal congestion and productive cough. Phlegm appears green. Paranoid about pneumonia?
Don't worry.: Pneumonia will give you a fever and your symptoms would have gotten worse, not better, without treatment.

Fever 101.2 feeling exhausted head hurts, dry cough for 2 days but mucus is stuck in lungs .. Nose and throat are ok. Pneumonia Or flu?
Hard to say; get see: A fever of 101.2 deg F is significant & not low-grade (100.4 deg F) so a bacterial infection is definitely possible. Detecting it, tho, is tricky as u will require blood tests & timed blood cultures when ur temp goes that high. Pneumonia just means infx of lungs, not specified as to bacteria or viral. U can get secondary infections of bacteria after lungs weakened by flu virus. See your doctor soon. ...Read more
9yr old has harsh bad cough for over 2 weeks with little congestion no fever feeling fine. Does this require antibiotic? Can't seem to rid cough
Hard to say: Antibiotics are useless in treating cough unless there is a bacterial infection causing it. Some kids with simple viral bronchitis will cough hard for up to a month. Work with the kids doc to see what is going on. Don't assume that antibiotics are needed, although they could be. Sometimes they develop a sinus infection that triggers persistent cough after the initial issue has passed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Woke up today w bad cough, no sputum (non-productive) that causes chest pain. Minor trouble breathing, runny nose, temp 99.2 f. cold or bronchitis?
Both: A cold is an upper respiratory infection. Acute bronchitis is also an upper respiratory infection. I would say you have both: acute bronchitis caused by a cold.

My is coughing with yellow sputum for 10dys. Last 2dys no sputum, she's coughing less but sweating. No fever all time. Is it pneumonia, bronchitis or?
Pneumonia: Several considerations are possible given symptoms of fever, cough and yellow sputum production, but pneumonia (PNA) should be strongly considered in a 65YO person with these persistent symptoms. If you are a smoker your risk for PNA and acute on chronic bronchitis increases. If you have a lot of sinus congestion then sinusitis may also be considered as a cause of your symptoms. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
