Can Swelling And Tightness Be Caused By The Use Of Double Lumen In Patients With Kidney Failure?
, my mother suffered from kidney failure 2 years ago. In January and four pairs of double lumen. Since then my mother has experienced swelling and shortness of breath. Is that caused by using a double lumen? It’s been consulting a hospital doctor. Shortness Caused by wet lungs. Can the lung heal? Contagious or not.
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
In the course of chronic kidney failure disease will cause complaints of shortness due to irreversible kidney damage. The ability of the kidneys to filter blood decreases so that fluids and toxic substances will accumulate in the body. Fluid buildup can also occur in the lungs so air exchange cannot take place normally and complaints of tightness arise.
This condition is not contagious and if the fluid in the lungs accumulates in large quantities it can require pleural puncture or the installation of a WSD tube to flow through the fluid. In addition to chronic kidney failure the production of erythropoietin will decrease so that it will make the production of red blood cells also decrease so that anemia occurs. This condition will also aggravate shortness of breath because the body lacks oxygen.
Patients with chronic kidney failure require dialysis or routine dialysis as a method to replace kidney function to reduce complaints of shortness of breath. Another alternative method is kidney transplantation to replace a kidney that is no longer functioning properly.
That's all, hope you can help
