Regarding Thickening Of The Pleural Layer?
Hello, I want to ask if the emphysematous lung with pleural thickening is what disease and what causes it and how to treat it. Can it recover? Thank you 😊
Emphysematous lung is a condition of emphysema in the lungs. Emphysema is a chronic disease caused by damage to the air sacs (alveoli) of the lungs. Damage to the air sacs will cause the formation of one large air sac from several air sacs that rupture, this results in decreased lung surface area. The surface area of the lung is important because the surface of the lung functions for air exchange, this is what causes a decrease in oxygen levels in the blood at emphysema.
While pleural thickening is not a disease but a condition of thickening of the pleural layer (the layer / membrane that separates the lungs from the chest wall) which can be triggered by various things such as inflammation or infection.
Emphysema cannot be cured. Treatment for emphysema is done under the supervision of a doctor because it is not uncommon to require prescription drugs that have the potential to cause various side effects. In such conditions the doctor can prescribe lozenges such as terbutaline, administering antibiotics if there is an infection, physiotherapy for lung function until surgery. For this reason, you should consult with your doctor directly in order to determine the treatment steps that suit your conditions and needs.
