Causes And Coping With Acute Respiratory Failure?
why until people have acute respiratory failure. What cause.
Hello Vingky, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Respiratory failure is a condition where there is a disruption in the exchange of gas in the lungs (can be interference in entering oxygen, removing carbon dioxide, or both). Because of this gas exchange disorder, sufferers of respiratory failure can experience hypoxia (lack of oxygen), hypercapnia (excess carbon dioxide), or both. Breathing is acute and some are chronic. Acute respiratory failure means that the gas exchange disturbance occurs suddenly and quickly, and this condition is an emergency condition. Chronic respiratory failure is a long-term problem that is usually caused by chronic lung disease (such as COPD or asthma) that requires routine treatment to treat the symptoms.
The following are some of the causes of acute respiratory failure:
injury to the chest area (eg due to an accident or a severe impact on the chest) acute pulmonary edema acute asthma attack pleural effusion pulmonary embolism severe lung infection brain and innervation disorders such as stroke, ALS, acute spinal cord injury alcohol overdose and certain drugs and still many more Acute respiratory failure conditions need to be distinguished from ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome). ARDS itself is one of the causes of acute respiratory failure. ARDS is a condition in which the alveoli in the lungs (small pockets in the lungs where gas exchange occurs) are filled with fluid. ARDS can be caused by a variety of causes as well, such as severe sepsis (whole body infection), inhalation of certain chemical gases in high concentrations, aspiration (choking), drowning, lung injury, pancreatitis, severe burns, large blood transfusions, etc. .
To find out exactly the cause of acute respiratory failure requires a variety of tests, you should consult the cause of respiratory failure directly with the doctor who treats the patient.
