When Oxygen Enters The Respiratory System What Is The Next Structure
Drainage of lymph: Lymph is a natural fluid made by the immune system (lymphatic system) to keep the body healthy. Any foreign material or waste product that persists in the blood (after liver) gets to the lymph system, where it is processed & "surveyed" to make sure there's nothing harmful. If there is, it goes to the immune cells to clean up. Lungs need it just like every other organ. ...Read more
Lungs: The lungs are vital to our breathing. There are many ways to diagnose problems with them and to treat the problems. See you physicain for a diagnosis and treatment plan. ...Read more
If a person is having rheumatic fever which affects the valve, will it result in lesser blood pumping around the body?
There isn't just one: There may not be just one nerve that brings heart pain to the brain. This is why people describe their heart attack symptoms so differently. Some people get nausea, sweating and a sense of "just not feeling right, " while others get the more classic chest and arm pain. Others may get extreme heaviness in the chest and shortness of breath. Thi suggests that different nerve pathways can be involved. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The sympathetic chain is the pathway between the body (all organs and systems in the body), and disrupting it will affect the whole, not just sweating?
It depends...: It depends on what kind of damage (disruption), such as: which nerves, where in the nerves, how many nerves, the size of the nerves, etc... The signals from sympathetic nerves create effects like include pupil dilation, increased sweating, increased heart rate, and increased blood pressure. ...Read more
What is the condition called in which part of the stomach is small & all the food can't reach it therefore the infant projectile vomits half his bottl?
Small Tummies: The condition u are referring to is called Pyloric Stenosis. In pyloric stenosis, the pylorus muscles thicken, blocking food from entering the baby's small intestine. Pyloric stenosis can lead to forceful vomiting, dehydration and weight loss. Babies with this condition may seem to always be hungry. Pyloric stenosis can be fixed with surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Keep air sacs open: Surfactants, which are made by the body and are also available as a medication for babies who are deficient in them (usually premie), coat the inside of the tiny air sacs in the lung and keep them open when you exhale. Just like a collapsed balloon is hard to inflate, a collapsed air sac is hard to open. When it doesn't close completely, it's easier to open with the next breath. ...Read more

What happens when henle is shortened, to the extent that they could not reach the medullary region of the kidney?
Question unclear: Loop of henle is part of an individual nephron (1 immion/kidney) & situated between glomerulus (mini filter) in kidney cortex & collecting duct in kidney medulla. Nephron cells would form into a cyst if obstructed or perhaps as u say "could not reach medullary region". ...Read more
If the body fights an HPV virus to the point where its not in the system anymore. Can the same strand affect the same person twice.?
You are misinformed: HPV is a family of DNA virus strains numbering in the hundreds. They are well known for infecting, self clearing after 2 years or so but with the potential to hibernate in the body forever. It may or may not re-emerge and shed (be contagious). You will develop antibodies to that strain that provide a marker for infection. Re- activation would not be a new infection of that strain. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What is the pathway tylenol (acetaminophen) takes through the body when administered through the rectum?
Tylenol (acetaminophen) absorpion: hello ~ odd but interesting question. EXACTLY THE SAME ROUTE AS TAKING IT ORALLY, (or we wouldnt suggest taking it that way.) The rectal mucus membrane is exactly the same histologically as the mouth, so it gets absorbed thru the mmembrane, into the rectal veins into the internal iliac, into the coeliac vein and then the splenic vein AND portal v to liver. Metab in liver!Out in bile and duodenum.. ...Read more
Main artery: The aorta is the main artery in the boday and is responsible for delivering blood to the rest of the body. ...Read more
Biologic advantage: The organisms are diurnal: there is a nocturnal periodicity. During the day, they are present in the deep veins, and during the night, they will be found in the peripheral circulation. However, if you reverse your sleep wake cycle, the organisms do it. It is related to oxygen tension in the lungs. They are best able to go to the next vector from the peripheral circulation at night. ...Read more
Treatments.: Respiratory therapists provide treatments of all types; some requiring machines call ventilators. If you have 'pulmonary'(lung) concerns then speak with your doctor; you may need to see a lung doctor(pulmonologist). ...Read more
How long should someone with respiratory failure be given 2liters prn oxygen. Each time the person either appears to be in distress or their 02 saturation levels fall
Depends: Most likely its not enough oxygen to compensate for the resp failure. There are some cases where someone who has severe COPD and the o2 may suppress respirations because in these people the elevated co2 is not what drives respirations since they live at such high levels. Most likely your are describing someone who needs an o2 mask or a breathing tube to get the o2 to the tissues/brain/heart. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My father is about 45 years old and have respiratory problem while talking oxygen in while sleeping.
My son is 4 and weighs 34lbs he has an upper n lower respiratory infection he also has asthma oxygen level is 91 is that normal?
SeekEvaluationToday!: The oxygen saturation of 91% is lower than we like to see generally speaking. Given his history of asthma in addition to his current respiratory infection he really needs to be evaluated either in the pediatrician's office today (or the ED if unable to get appointment). It may be that you just need to increase the frequency of his asthma meds, but only after a thorough evaluation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My oxygen sats are at 86% I'm asthmatic and suffer respiratory bronchiolitis secondary to smoking I'm very weazy should I got to the local hospital?
Yes: thats a low sat at rest so yes go to the emergency room for an eval ...Read more
Depends on situation: Part of the bodies mechanism for deciding when to breathe is controlled by co2 sensors in the main blood vessels. In some medical conditions (like copd), when excess oxygen is given to patients & drops the co2 level, their sensors stop the automatic breathing cycle until it builds back up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Carefully!: Advanced emphysema and respiratory distress are different. Both may require supplemental oxygen. Respiratory distress may result from many causes other than emphysema and almost always requires extra o2. Pts with severe emphysema or COPD rarely may slow or stop breathing with extra o2 because it takes away their urge to breathe. O2 must be given with extra caution to those pts. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Respiratory acidosis. When does the PCO2 become too high? I'm already at 60.1 mmHg (VBG), O2 sat. is 53.2%. Stable or in need or treatment?
Pulmonologist: These values are consistent with poor lung function and respiratory acidosis is likely. A pulmonologist should be involved in your care for diagnosis and treatment. Your low oxygen saturation would be treated with cautious use of low flow nasal oxygen to avoid further elevation (and retention of CO2) of your pCO2. ...Read more
Interesting !?: Starting from the top: the lips, mouth, throat. trachea, larynx, right and left main stem bronchi, smaller bronchial passages and the tiny alveoli (where oxygen & carbon dioxide are exchanged) and the pulmonary vessels are all part of the respiratory system One of its most remarkable aspects is its ability to make speech and other sounds. There's no other like it in the animal kingdom. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Avoiding irritants: To keep your respiratory system healthy the most important thing is to avoid smoking and second-hand smoke. Avoiding exposure to particles and chemicals known to cause lung disease such as chemical fumes, dust, mold. Avoiding certain professions that lead to the above-mentioned exposures (mine work, sandblasters, tunnel builders, foundry workers, etc). Use of nasal lubricants during dry seasons. ...Read more
