The Effect Of Surgery With Total Anesthesia On The Respiratory Tract?
Doctor, 2 months ago I was operating a cyst. When I was operating, I was anesthetized with a coughing condition because I suddenly had phlegm in my throat, but at that time I didn’t have a cold / cough. why is that so? And sometimes my breath is suffocated, cold sweat, unstable heart. what happens to me ..? is there any possibility after surgery, my lungs have problems ??
Hello Maya good evening, thanks for the question
When undergoing a surgical procedure with general anesthesia, the patient will be fitted with a breathing tube connected to the ventilator to maintain patency of the airway while in an unconscious condition due to the influence of the anesthetic. The tube will enter the trachea (lower airway) to ensure adequate oxygen delivery to the lungs. The existence of these foreign objects and also because in an unconscious position will produce more mucus and accumulate in the lower airway, where it is classified as normal conditions. In addition, the procedure makes the patient cough by stimulating the lower airway is indeed a way to wake the patient after the surgery is complete and the breathing tube has been removed. Usually accompanied by calling out the patient's name and shaking the patient's body to wake up.
The procedure to install the airway and stimulate the airway is sterile and with a sterile device so that it will not have a negative impact on the airway.
If you currently have a complaint such as tightness or cold sweat, then it is likely caused by other factors. Complaints may come from the heart, lungs, upper gastrointestinal tract, or even psychological disorders that are not related to abnormalities of the body's organs.
Therefore we recommend consulting with a doctor so that a physical examination can be carried out directly to assess the origin of the complaint. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause after the diagnosis is made.
That's all, hope you can help
