Could Inhalation Of Chlorine Gas Cause Pulmonary Edema
Fluid around lungs has many causes. It can be exudate(thick i.E pus from infection, malignancy etc) or transudative(heart failure). It may be treated based on the problem found by sampling(thoracentesis). Labs on the fluid help the clinician determine the etiology. For recurring pleural fluid, sometime pleuradesis is necessary to hep prevent recurrance. Need ...Read more
Possible: If not maintained and cleaned well yes. These may become dirty and not function well. Also depends on the type of cleaner. Some are electrostatic or ionized. Most likely it is the surrounding enviorment not the machine if working well. Need to trouble shoot more. ...Read more
Reflux can hurt lung: I am not exactly sure what you mean by long edema but stomach juice that comes up and gets into the throat and spills into the lungs can cause significant damage. The damage certainly can cause swelling and edema of the lung tissue and can lead to pneumonia and pneumonitis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
"Forced drinking": ...of what? Forced anything is probably bad, but forced drinking can cause many problems. If you force someone to drink too much water the biggest risk is of hyponatremia (low serum sodium, with ill effects on the brain mostly) , not pulmonary edema. Forced drinking of alcohol is also referred to as assault in my view, and should be reported to the police. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can fludrocortisone dilute blood too much and cause shortness of breath without causing pulmonary oedema or heart failure?
Unlikely: Fludrocortisone is more likely to cause electrolyte changes or changes in glucose metabolism. Vascular volume changes significant enough to cause dilutional anemia (to the extent that oxygen delivery is affected) or congestive heart failure (if not already significantly predisposed) would not be likely. Notify the prescribing physician so appropriate follow up is arranged. Good luck! ...Read more

Yes, but no: A lung abscess is so completely rare when compared to oral reasons for bad breath. I would not suspect an abscess of a lung unless there where more breathing/pleurisy type symptoms. My first suggestion would be brush your tongue and drink water. See a dentist to determine if there is a true dental reason that you have bad breath if you are a smoker, stop now ! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Exceptionally rare: This would entail a systemic(as in throughout the body) spread of a fungus through an inhalation mechanism. It could happen but again would be exceptionally rare. Expect a respiratory mold exposure to cause more so respiratory, allergic or nonspecific symptoms like headache/fatigue. ...Read more
No, but: Increased pleural fluid (effusion) may be caused by pulmonary edema and heart failure. This is because the heart is unable to pump the blood effectively and fluid backs up in the lungs and leaks out to the pleural space. The fluid can often be relieved by medication. Pneumonia can cause increased fluid as well, which is often infected (empyema). This is removed by a tube in the chest or surgery. ...Read more
Other than COPD, what would cause shortness of breath& pain w/breathing in, plus focal airspace disease on chest X-ray? No cough/fever/phlegm.
Pain in lungs when breathing no dizziness what could be a cause?
Xrays showed rt minimal lung base collapse
Dyspnea & hi-thyroid: Dyspnea may occur for many reasons in hyperthyroidism: increase in oxygen consumption leading to hypoxemia; increase in co2 production leading to hypercapnia; respiratory muscle weakness; decreased lung volume; an anatomical such as partial airway obstruction from a large goiter is also possible; exacerbation of underlying asthma; pulmonary hypertension. Proper treatment can correct all these. ...Read more
NO: Air trappin is generally due to air OBSTRUCTION in the smaller lung (bronchial) tubes. S guess a VERY DEEP Breath ...held while the xray is taken could give an appearance of hyperinflation but Radiologist know the difference!!! BTW anxiety generally is associated with rapid shallow breathing...Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How can you differentiate between shortness of breath due to pericarditis from shortness of breath due to anklyosing spondalitis?
Fluid in the tissues, either caused by something local to the swollen area like an injury or inflammation, or from the body's retention of water. Gravity brings the fluid to the feet & legs in that case. As a general rule, if one foot is swollen, something is wrong with the foot. If both feet are swollen, it's not the feet, but water ...Read more
The lungs are the organ that exchange oxygen and shouldn't have fluids. In pulmonary edema they fill up with fluids most commonly, from heart failure. This causes shortness of breath. Other causes are kidney and liver failure. Low protein in blood or allergic reactions. Treatment usually require diuretics or water pills ...Read more
