What Is The Disease From Pine Tree Sap That Causes Respiratory Failure
Asthma or fibrosis: Plicatic and abietic acids from cedar and pine resin cause direct damage to human epithelial cells and chronic exposure can lead to either occupational asthma or (if the worker's response is worse) can lead to pulmonary fibrosis. Woodworker's lung is the name for the fibrosis associated with the chronic inhalation of pine or cedar dust.See 1 more doctor answer
Poor lung function: Basically the lungs are not expanding like they should be as such they are not working well and not oxygenating the blood.
Respiratory failure.: Respiratory failure means that the person was unable to effectively take in oxygen and get rid of carbon dioxide. This could be due to a failure in any of the respiratory system including the lungs, musculoskeletal system or even the brain, if the brain was not able to direct the rest of the body to breathe. What did the person die of? Whatever it was, it was complicated by respiratory failure.
What kind???: There are different types of shock so the precise answer depends on the type of shock you are asking about. But, in general, shock results in an inflammatory cascade which can cause respiratory failure mainly due to the build up of acids in the blood. The acids result in the person having to increase their breathing and this can lead to fatigue making ventilator support necessary.
See below: There are two types of respiratory failure - hypoxic where the body does not get enough oxygen, and hypercapneic, where the lungs cannot wash out the carbon dioxide. Either one can cause death. Usually, we can give supplemental oxygen or help with various machines to blow off the co2 but if the underlying lung disease cannot be reversed, that results in death.See 1 more doctor answer
Can being bedridden for several months lead to total cardio respiratory failure and destruction of major organs? I know it always causes DVT and PE.
Due to acidosis.,,: The metabolic acidosis causes a respiratory compensation in an attempt by the body to keep the blood ph normal. The respiratory compensation is to increase minute ventilation (both respiratory rate and volume per breath!). So, the person with severe metabolic acidosis will be breathing fast and deeply. Doing this for an extended period of time can lead to fatigue resulting in respiratory failure.See 3 more doctor answers
Tension rapid: If the collapsed lung (pneumothorax) creates enough pressure, it can compress the right side of the heart. This decreases the blood return to the heart. Without adequate blood return, your heart does not have enough blood to pump out to your body. This is called tension pneumothorax. If the pressure is not released, this is rapidly fatal.See 1 more doctor answer
I had respiratory failure (cyanosis) during general anaesthetic. The doctor thinks it was anaphylaxis. I am now diagnosed with both COPD stage 2 and asthma. Were these conditions the more likely cause?
COPD is deadly: Anaphylaxis can happen with any drug, but acute postoperative respiratory failure is more commonly caused by underlying lung disease. Stopping smoking several weeks before surgery decreases risk for complications. Of course, the best thing anyone can do for better health is to stop smoking, especially those with lung disease. Smoking with lung disease is like rubbing dirt into a wound. Stop ASAP.See 1 more doctor answer
I've been smoking e-cigs about a year now very often n my breathing has got progressively worse. Can this b reversed or do I have respiratory failure?
Try to stop: Whoever introduced you to e-cigs was NOT your friend. If they told you that they are "safe", they lied to you. Please do whatever you can to overcome this addiction. The damage to your lungs is not as bad as with regular cigs, but it is still real. Be tough and quit by whatever means you can.
It varies: If you see people who are drowning, they really struggle at the beginning. People who develop resp failure from sepsis or copd, they suffer initially, but as the co2 rises it serves as a narcotic and we see them gasping but probably not suffering once consciousness wanes. But acute resp failure from any cause makes someone struggle. So please don't do anything bad.
RESP Failure: If you're referring to Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome or ARDS, there are about 200, 000 cases with 75, 000 deaths annually
Partial versus full: The job of the respiratory system, breathing, is to get oxygen from the air into the body (the oxygen is fuel just like it is for a fire). It is also to eliminate the waste gas which is carbon dioxide. When the respiratory system can not do this job and either oxygen levels drop or carbon dioxide levels in the blood go up it's respiratory failure. If one stopped breathing its respiratory arrestSee 1 more doctor answer
Varies: Some will recover quickly. Some may need months of weaning therapy to get off ventilator. Some will never breathe on own. Depends entirely on cause, as it is a symptom of many problems. Resp failure does not always mean lung problem-just inability to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide enough to live or protect airway, so can be due to sepsis, heart failure, muscle dz, brain damage, etc.See 2 more doctor answers
Several reasons: Respiratory failure usually occurs due to one or more of the following...The inability to get oxygen into the blood, the inability to get carbon dioxide out of the blood, a problem with the nerves or muscles that do the work of breathing, or airway obstruction.See 2 more doctor answers
