Excessive Fluid From The Pleura And Decreased Platelet Levels?
Hello, how do you get the fluid out of the set. How did my mother get it on Sunday 1 week while adding platelet blood, how is the condition getting worse?
Hello Deni, Thank you for the question.
Do you mean by set? Association is not a medical language. Do you mean the fluid in the pleural cavity of the lungs or what is known as pleural effusion? The pleura is the membrane lining the lungs and chest wall. Between the two pleura normally there is indeed a small amount of fluid that functions as a lubricant to help the movement of the lungs when breathing. But, if the amount of this fluid increases, then the movement of the lungs can be disrupted. The condition of fluid accumulation in the lungs is known as pleural effusion.
Pleural effusion accompanied by a decrease in platelet levels in the blood can be caused by dengue fever. Dengue fever is an infection caused by the dengue virus which is transmitted through mosquito bites. This virus can attack platelets and cause leakage in blood vessels. Leaks in blood vessels can cause fluid to accumulate in the surrounding tissue. If the lungs occur, this fluid can accumulate in the pleural cavity and cause pleural effusion. Large amounts of effusion can cause sufferers to experience shortness of breath and interfere with lung function. Management of pleural effusion depends on the amount of fluid. If the amount of fluid that accumulates is classified as much moreover it already causes symptoms of shortness of breath, then the doctor will do the treatment by taking this pleural effusion. In addition, another thing that is done by doctors is to overcome the cause. In dengue fever, the doctor will monitor your mother's general condition including platelet levels. A new platelet transfusion will be given if the platelet level is too low. The condition that worsens may be related to leakage of blood vessels that occur in your mother. In addition to dengue, pleural effusion accompanied by decreased platelet levels can also be caused by idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) or liver cirrhosis.
Sorry, I cannot explain further why your mother's condition has deteriorated due to the lack of clear information about your mother's condition. The most appropriate step is to ask the doctor who treats your mother because the doctor who has examined your mother and better understand your mother's condition. Further handling will be adjusted to your mother's condition.
However, if this is not the condition you are asking, please make another new question by clarifying your intentions, yes.
I hope this helps.
