What Is The Treatment For Pericardial Effusion?
I have a friend who is 18 years old and was diagnosed with a pericardial effusion caused by a virus, can my friend get well just by taking aspirin when he feels sick?
Hi Firsa, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Pericardial effusion is a condition of the accumulation of excess fluid in the space between the pericardium (2 thin membranes that surround the heart). This can be caused by several things, including:
- Pericarditis, where inflammation occurs in the pericardium, resulting in excess fluid production
- Viral infection, this infection can include cytomegalovirus, coxsackievirus, or HIV
- bacterial infection
- The occurrence of injury to the heart or pericardium
- and others..
To find out the cure rate in patients, then you should consult with your cardiologist. Because this depends on the severity, causes and the patient's condition. This depends on the results of examinations in patients.
Some things you can do at home to reduce complaints such as adequate rest, avoid excessive physical activity, avoid consumption of alcoholic beverages, avoid smoking, and multiply the consumption of fruits and vegetables.
If you experience complaints such as shortness of breath, chest pain, then I recommend to immediately see a doctor.
