Lung X-ray And Heart Results?
Good morning / afternoon / evening, I want to ask the results of X-ray Taufiq that I do not understand, as below:
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you need to know in advance that to be able to diagnose an ailment requires complete information related to the clinical symptoms that you are experiencing and needs to be done a physical examination as well as supporting examinations (such as chest X-rays). Based on the results of your chest X-ray, you will get the impression of bronchitis (inflammation of the lung bronchus) and bronchopneumonia (lung infection). But again, both diagnoses must still be adjusted to your clinical symptoms. Bronchitis has 2 types, acute and chronic bronchitis. Acute bronchitis is most often caused by infection (can be viral or bacterial), while chronic bronchitis is most often caused by smoking. Bronchopneumonia is most often caused by a viral or bacterial infection.
Because there is a possibility of infection in your airways, you should isolate yourself at home (given the corona virus pandemic now). You should not leave the house unless very forced (for example when you have to do control back to your doctor to follow up the x-ray examination results). When going out of the house, make sure you wear a mask, keep doing social and physical distancing with people around you (keep a minimum distance of 1.8-2 meters, do not contact physically at all), wash your hands with soap as often as possible or use a hand sanitizer if there is no wash your hands, do the proper coughing and sneezing etiquette (cover your mouth and nose with the inside of your elbows), avoid smoking. At home you also still have to keep a distance from the people in your home, make sure you sleep in your own room, do not eat from the same plate or use cutlery together, and you also still have to use a mask at home (unless you being in the room alone).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
