ct scan results head cerebri edema conclusions what to do?
Hello Mr. Jhony! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Edema or swelling is the body's response to various types of injury or infection. Cerebri edema is a term for edema or swelling in the brain. The brain can also swell due to injury, infection, or various other diseases (such as stroke or tumor). In contrast to swelling in other areas, edema of the brain can cause serious problems, even death. Edema in the brain is also more difficult to overcome than edema in other organs. The brain is inside the hard and closed skull bones. This hard and closed space does not provide much room for the brain to swell, resulting in an increase in pressure in the space. This increased pressure makes the blood flow to the brain becomes obstructed, so oxygen cannot get to parts of the brain to carry out its functions normally. In addition, high pressure can suppress the brain stem and affect the respiratory center, so death can occur. If the results of a CT scan of the people closest to you show so, immediately consult a neurologist who recommends the examination. The doctor will examine the patient's condition, then provide therapy to reduce the swelling that occurs. Patients also need to be given oxygen and monitored closely, so it should be treated in hospital. If the damage to the brain is severe, the patient may need surgery. The doctor will discuss with the family about this.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
