Hello, Juqi. Thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com.
Lung submerged or in medical language is known as pleural effusion, which is a buildup of fluid between two membranes that separate the lungs from the inner chest wall. In general, pleural effusion is a complication of other diseases, such as lung cancer, tuberculosis (TB), heart failure, kidney disorders, pneumonia, cirrhosis, and pulmonary embolism, symptoms that can arise from pleural effusion, including are coughing, fever, chest pain when inhaling and exhaling, and shortness of breath. The diagnosis of pleural effusion can be made by history, physical examination, and supporting examinations, such as chest x-ray, ultrasound, CT scan and thoracocentesis or pleural punksi can be done to check the type of fluid.
The most important treatment for pleural effusion is by overcoming the underlying diseases. If the accumulation of fluid in the pleural effusion is excessive, it can be done several procedures, such as thoracocentesis or pleural punksi, installation of a special plastic tube (chest tube), pleural drain, and pleurodesis. There is no specific drink or food for healing, pleural effusion sufferers are only recommended for diets that are nutritious, high in calories and high in protein. It is recommended that you consult directly with a Lung Doctor, so that an appropriate examination and treatment can be done. Thus, hopefully useful.
