Dogs Lungs Filled With Fluid
Pneumonia: The fluid filling the alveolus, secondary to infection, is quite simply pus/ purulence that develops as white blood cells kill the infectant. A good amount of damage to alveolar cells also occurs due to proteins released from white blood cells designed to recruit more cells to area of infection, creating breaks in cell lining. This causes increased swelling/ fluid leak into air spaces. ...Read moreSee 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
Better ways: The condition you described is due to congestive heart failure, which is due to decreased the efficacy of heart a pumping device which causes fluid to back flow to lung. Then treatment is to support heart such as using acei, and beta blockers at some point. Meanwhile we can decrease the heart's load by using diuretics and get rid of extra fluid from the system. Also will restrict fluid and salt. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

After cellular fluid leaves the ruptured cell, will the contents in cellular fluid be able to react with chemicals in interstitial fluid?
Of course: If a cell is inside the body, it is surrounded by interstitial fluid. Therefore if that cell breaks, whatever comes out of the cell gets mixed with the surrounding interstitial fluid. It's like being on a boat in the middle of a lake. If the boat breaks in half, you will end up in the lake. ...Read more
Explain the dyspnea in patients with viral pneumonia, where the alveoli is not filled with exudates?
Still alveoli damage: great ? but the inflammatory response in the alveoli is similar whether due to viral or bacterial infection. fluid still fills the alveoli and thus impairs gas exchange by impairing diffusion of gases across the alveolar-capillary membrane. ...Read more

Several causes: Fluid in lungs can be due to several causes & it should be investigated by your doctor to determine appropriate therapy. Because the retained fluid in your lungs makes your lungs relatively stiff & makes it harder for oxygen to enter your body, it will lead to problems with breathing as the body tries to make up for this by breathing faster. Please consult a lung specialist for treatment. ...Read more

Can CT show images of perforated bowel abscesses large fluid collection with an air level, and be WRONG????
Unlikely: It is unlikely that a CT would be wrong. It is a very good test for assessing abscesses and an air/fluid level is an excellent indication of perforated bowel. It could however have been read incorrectly but most radiologists are expert in reading CT scans. You should ask for a second radiologist to read the CT if you suspect an error. ...Read more
