Treatment For Stroke Sufferers And Lung Infections?
Good morning, today is the 10th day my father was treated at the ICU, my father in the primary diagnosis of SNH, and several secondary diagnoses such as DM, lung infection. To this day, my father has not been able to release the ventilator in the ICU, what tips should we do?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. SNH or non-hemorrhagic stroke is a type of stroke where there is a reduction in blood flow to a particular brain tissue caused by a blockage. Another type is SH or hemorrhagic stroke where the reduction in blood flow is caused by bleeding or broken blood vessels.
There are various factors that can increase the risk of stroke, including:
High blood pressure Diabetes or high blood sugar levels High cholesterol Obesity or excess body weight Smoking Lack of exercise or physical activity
In the case of your father, his experience seems to have been a complication, where there are various diseases that occur simultaneously. As for him using a ventilator or breathing apparatus also shows that he is now in a condition where he is unable to breathe on his own. In layman, actually there is not much you can do besides providing support in the form of routine monitoring and obeying the rules made by the hospital, such as taking turns visiting, there are always family members waiting and so forth. Then the one who can answer the most detail is actually the doctor who treats your father. So our advice, the next time your father is visited by the doctor in charge, you can ask about the development of the patient, and perhaps also hope for recovery. Also ask if there are other things you can do if, for example, your father is referred or moved to another hospital with more complete facilities. So, hopefully answering your question.
