Shortness Of Breath And There Is Light Green Liquid Coming Out Of The Lungs?
, I want to ask my father’s shortness of breath yesterday the lungs have been checked and it turns out there is a light green liquid coming out of my father’s lungs if it’s a hot afternoon even though the lines in a closed place don’t come out sweaty after being sucked in the liquid it’s a little better when the night is sometimes shivering sometimes it is hot
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fluid in the lungs is a condition called pleural effusion. This condition occurs precisely when fluid builds up in the lining between the lungs and lung sheath, as shown in the image below.
So it's clear if your father's main complaint is shortness of breath. Because as you can see, in the right lung of the picture, its development is disrupted by fluid buildup. It is important to know the reasons why pleural effusion can occur. Some conditions that can cause pleural effusion are:
Sirosisatau decreased liver function.
And can also be other reasons. The risk is increased in those who have high blood pressure, smoking, alcohol consumption, and exposure to asbestos dust. Therefore in your father's present condition, after the liquid has been sucked out, the next step is to find out the main cause. Usually some of the liquid will be examined in the laboratory to see its content, whether there are bacteria or others that could be a clue where the liquid is actually coming from. For example, if it turns out you have bacteria, chances are your father might have complications from pneumonia or tuberculosis. When this is the case, the main treatment is antibiotics, heat sinking, and continuous observation. What is clear, if your father is now hospitalized, the treatment should have been running.
Our advice, if you or your father still do not understand what disease he suffered, do not hesitate to ask the doctor because it is your right. Don't hesitate to ask again if you still don't understand. Therefore the doctor's obligation is also to explain when the patient asks. This is important so that you can know the severity, possible recurrence, potential for recovery and what steps the family must take.
In the meantime, obey the doctor's advice, and if it turns out your father has been discharged but his condition has not improved, ask the reason for his discharge, what treatments can be done at home, and what to do if things happen that are not desirable. So, hopefully answering your question.
