Chest X-ray Examination Results
my son yesterday ran out of thorax photos,
Hello Nasrun, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
From your child's x-ray results, it is stated that your child has bronchopneumonia. Bronchopneumonia is an inflammation of the lungs originating from the bronchial airways caused by an infection. Usually this disease often strikes children under 2 years of age or the elderly above 60 years. This disease can be caused by bacteria (pneumococcus, Streptococcus), hypostatic pneumonia virus, loeffler syndrome, fungi and foreign bodies. One thing that can also be a risk factor is a child's immune system that is not yet strong.
If the child has bronchopneumonia, you should immediately do the treatment in accordance with the general practitioner or pediatrician recommend. Because if not handled properly and immediately, it is feared that it will cause complications. Complications that can arise such as sepsis, respiratory failure, pleural effusion, lung abscess, etc. After examination of the chest X-ray / X-ray should be done immediately appropriate handling. Apart from that what you can do is:
Rest your child enough. Continue to provide nutritious food. Give enough fluids to avoid dehydration. Avoid children from exposure to cigarette smoke, etc. Give medication according to the recommended dosage. That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
