Air Humidity Levels And Their Effects On Patients With Pneumonia?
evening, want to ask. Do people with pneumonia / wet lung have different levels of respiratory air humidity than normal people? if for example, what percentage of the proportion of air humidity in a patient’s breathing with a normal person? thank you….
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Pneumonia, or sometimes also called wet lung, is a disease in which an infection occurs in a person's respiratory system, precisely in the air sacs in one or both parts of the lungs. For more convenience, see the image below.
The accumulation of fluid from which the name of the wet lung is caused is caused by an infection, both by bacteria, viruses, and fungi so that the lung tissue responds by releasing fluid to treat inflammation. Apart from infection, pneumonia can also occur when there is fluid entering the lungs such as vomit that enters the respiratory system, choking on something, when people drown or something.
So regarding your question, because the 'wetness' in the wet lungs is only an inflammatory response, and only in small amounts in the smallest part of the lung, this does not affect the humidity of the air. That way, there is no difference in respiratory air humidity between normal people and pneumonia. So, hopefully answering your question.
