Solution For Pleural Effusion Treatment During Corona Virus
Doc, I took 7 months ago a kind of fluid in the lungs but thank God it’s been sucked up. Then for 7 months I took medicine regularly, thank God it’s healthy as usual but I still have to take medicine. Next week I have to get back in control because the medicine is about to run out but because there is an outbreak of covid19 and the hospital where I control is covid19 referral hospital. The head of the household in my area and my family stayed advised not to leave the house, even the police there suggested not to go there first because it could be suspect. Does the doctor have a solution?
Thank you for the question.
Fluid in the lungs or pleural effusion is a condition in which there is a buildup of fluid between the two layers of the lung or pleura, which can cause symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain, coughing or fever. Treatment of pleural effusion is to treat conditions that cause fluid buildup, taking fluid with anthorocentesis or siphoning it, installing a special hose, or catheter, or administering an injection of substances that can attach the two layers back.
With this outbreak of covid-19 disease, it is advisable to stay home to reduce transmission of the virus, and consult a doctor if there are signs of an emergency, in your case such as shortness of breath, chest pain, or high fever. Therefore, if possible, you should consult a doctor who examines you by telephone, and ask for prescription drugs for you to redeem yourself with an online pharmacy service. Or, you can consult with a pulmonary specialist here or with the HealthReplies.com chat service for further prescription drug recommendations. It is recommended that you convey what medicine you are currently taking, and its effect if there are modifications to the use of the drug such as temporarily stopping it.
Hopefully this information can help.
