Fluid Suction In The Left Lung?
Good night dokk .. I yesterday suctioned in the lungs on the left side whether the right side will also disappear or is there still fluid? Thank you 🙏
Hello Juqi, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Pulmonary fluid or pleural effusion is the accumulation of fluid between the two layers of lung wrap (pleura). Basically, the left pleura and right pleura are not connected directly, so that if you do the suction of fluid in your left pleura, the fluid in the right pleura will not be sucked. However, if the amount of fluid in the pleura is only a little, this fluid can be absorbed and disappear on its own without needing to be sucked up. Suction of pleural fluid is usually done only when there is a very large amount of fluid or significant symptoms (such as severe shortness of breath) due to this pleural fluid.
In addition, it must be considered also the cause of the emergence of fluid in the pleura. The cause of the appearance of fluid in the pleura can be various, some of which are infections, inflammation, malignancy (cancer), heart failure, liver failure, etc. If these conditions are not treated, pleural fluid can reappear.
