Hello Chaef, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
X-rays are examination procedures using electromagnetic wave radiation to display a picture of the inside of the body, observe the progress of the disease, find out the progress of the treatment being carried out, as well as being a guide for carrying out certain procedures.
Thorax means the area around the chest, with the results of the heart and breathing muscles in your child's diaphragm seem normal Pulmo means the lungs, with the result that there is an inflammatory process or infection that occurs in the left lung of your child. The final impression from your child's x-ray examination is suspected infected with tuberculosis bacteria in the lung area, but must still be confirmed by other laboratory tests X-rays are just one type of investigation that cannot make a diagnosis without the discovery of clinical symptoms that support the picture. Therefore, I suggest to bring your child to consult directly about the condition of your child and the results of the X-ray images to a general practitioner or pediatrician in order to do a thorough examination, such as question and answer, vital signs examination, physical examination of the lungs , and other additional tests such as routine blood laboratories, and examination of acid-resistant bacterial sputum for 3 times, so that treatment can be given immediately according to the diagnosis of your child's illness.
As for the things you and your child can do right now:
- Teach your child to close his mouth using the angle of the elbow, mask, or tissue (tissue is removed immediately after use) when coughing, sneezing and laughing
- Do not expel phlegm or spit carelessly.
- Make sure your child consumes nutritious food
- Make sure your child gets enough rest
Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
