Hello .. I want to ask, my father is 69 years old, experiencing respiratory problems, whether the effects of excessive salbutamol so that he also has blocked his urinary tract and have a catheter installed. which should be done? Because when the medicine runs out, relapses again, so I’m confused .. Do you need to install an oxygen cylinder, or inhaler huh … Please help … Thank you 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. Shortness of breath can occur due to various things, including:
COPD or lung obstruction
Stomach acid disease
So indeed, not always the condition of tightness is caused by abnormalities in the lungs. That way, the handling is also different. In general, what doctors will do in emergency treatment is oxygen delivery. But this is also accompanied by another examination to find out the main cause. So even if you have oxygen, an examination by a doctor is still needed at that time.
Because it is our suggestion, immediately take your father to the nearest hospital emergency room to be checked whenever he feels congested. And the most important thing is after that check it with a pulmonary doctor to ascertain what is the true cause of bronchitis. Because, bronchitis can indeed make it tight, but it should not recur again and again. If you find that you have asthma or COPD, you can buy a nebulizer and prescribe medication for initial treatment at home. If it turns out the cause is due to kidney disease, maybe he needs to be washed with blood. If the cause turns out to be acid reflux disease, then the originators should be avoided, and so on. In essence, there are more than one causes of shortness of symptoms, and to be able to provide the best treatment, it must be checked by an expert, a lung doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
