Moco asesino 🎶 Atelectasia total izquierda. Radioopacidad del hemitórax izquierdo, con desplazamiento del mediastino, tráquea y silueta cardiaca a la izquierda 😵 #atelectasis#criticalill#septicshock#EM
Atelectasis is the collapse or closure of a lung resulting in reduced or absent gas exchange. It may affect part or all of a lung.lt is usually not bilateral. It is a condition where the alveoli are deflated down to little or no volume, as distinct from pulmonary consolidation, in which they are filled with liquid. It is often called a collapsed lung, although that term may also refer to pneumothorax. #atelectasis
Yesterday, the prone position of intubated patient with atelectasis of pleural effusion and thoracic empyema was did for 16 hours by 8members of stuffs.
She has been inserted chest drains in both right and left thoracic cavity, in addition to abdomen drain, urethral catheter , cv, arterial line. The ventilator mode was APRV , FiO2 1.0.
We turned to right and left forward-bent of her body every 4hours,and decompressed every hour.
Consequently, while this time, her vital signs, HR,BP,R no fluctuated, moreover PF ratio of her was improved from 70 to 190!!🙌😆
FiO2 was from 1.0 to 0.5👏
Thank you for her, and stuffs including nurses, doctors and physiotherapists!! ・
Have some crazy hair and tan lines going on from working outside today but hey This Is Me!!! So story so far was turning into a saga longer than #lordoftherings but it seems ugly bug from weeks ago refuses to go so HELLO collapsed lung!! Super tired/frazzled but refusing to take it lying down and working on some amazing xmassy stuff as we speak!! The past year or so has totally throw it at me but hanging on in there, surrounded by the most beautiful of peeps ❤️❤️ rest assured what you see is what you get, a bit broken, forever hopeful and love you always xxxx #lovealways#peace#calm#makingit#thisisme#menieresdisease#Atelectasis#older#wiser#stronger#thanksforlistening
Really proud of myself this morning. I got my cross trainer back out and managed just under 10minutes of slow cardio, what my lungs allowed (I stopped when the chest pains came on). Figured I shouldn't push through that sort of pain. But I have been given the go ahead to do light cardio 😀I am trying to build my lung capacity back and inflate those air sacs 🙌🏼👍🏼👊🏼❣️#gome ! what doesn't kill you makes you stronger 😎
A bit of lower lung lobe collapse here, and some deflated air sacs there, as a result of the PE's and infarct ❣️I feel as deflated as my lung does 🤓We will get there lungs! ❣️🙈#atelectasis#pleuraleffusion
Apologies for the gross swell fest faces and my sudden silence. Feel free to scroll past this lengthy update. 😉 As you guys can see from the pics, I've had a bit going on this past week. The events have left me quite spent, and thus uncharacteristically quiet about events. The awesome news is that I am out of the hospital! I was released from my sentance Friday afternoon despite still feeling rough. Fine by me though!! That same day I headed over to my allergist/immunologist to begin working on an action plan. The first part is to up the dose of both my prophylactic and rescue meds for HAE as my system is obviously reactive. The other part is to take care of my HAE attack triggers by continuing to identify them and treating what we can, as well as, getting to specialists for the ones that are outside of the allergy and immune system realm. She suspected another, likely chronic, infection despite getting most of my chest infection cleared up. So the day I get out of the hospital, I had to get a head CAT scan at the south clinic to see what was up. Good times I feel ya! The results? I have a MASSIVE sinus infection!! Surprise! None of my blood tests even indicated as such, of course, but the scan don't tell no lies. :-P To top that off I've had some rounds with atelectasis (not the serious type- just kicking my butt making breathing a chore type) that we have to watch. There's a possibilty that I'll need to get further tests done to see if I have another lung disease- ugh! Oh! I almost forgot to mention the three ugly HAE attacks I've had in the past four and a half days at the hospital and home. Jon was actually allowed to prepare and administer my Cinryze and Berinert Thursday. My hospital team is uber cool like that. I wish I had taken a picture of my doctors face as he watched mesmerized by Berinert working its defluffing magic- it was priceless!! Anywho, thanks to the craziness of the hospital, my body's antics, and all that jazz I have been laying super low, taking it easy and getting as much rest as I can. I am definitely doing better than I have been these past months. It's just a process, one that makes a slug on a salt lick look like the roadrunner!
Atelectasis is collapse or incomplete expansion of the lung or part of the lung. This is one of the most common findings on a chest x-ray. It is most often caused by an endobronchial lesion, such as mucus plug or tumor. It can also be caused by extrinsic compression centrally by a mass such as lymph nodes or peripheral compression by pleural effusion. An unusual type of atelectasis is cicatricial and is secondary to scarring, TB, or status post radiation.
Atelectasis is almost always associated with a linear increased density on chest x-ray. The apex tends to be at the hilum. The density is associated with volume loss. Some indirect signs of volume loss include vascular crowding or fissural, tracheal, or mediastinal shift, towards the collapse. There may be compensatory hyperinflation of adjacent lobes, or hilar elevation (upper lobe collapse) or depression (lower lobe collapse). Segmental and subsegmental collapse may show linear, curvilinear, wedge shaped opacities. This is most often associated with post-op patients and those with massive hepatosplenomegaly or ascites .
▪️Atelectasis (at-uh-LEK-tuh-sis) — a complete or partial collapse of a lung or lobe of a lung — develops when the tiny air sacs (alveoli) within the lung become deflated. It's a breathing (respiratory) complication after surgery.▪️ .
.▪️Pulmonary hypertension is a type of high blood pressure that affects the arteries in your lungs and the right side of your heart. In one form of pulmonary hypertension, tiny arteries in your lungs, called pulmonary arterioles, and capillaries become narrowed, blocked or destroyed.▪️ .
.OK. This isn't easy to share. I like to post the highlight reel of my life. I'm a sucker for encouraging others during hard times, while keeping my own issues locked away in a hidden safe that only I can access. Truth is, I have felt like complete shit for about 6 weeks. I mean like fatigue that hits me worse than during pregnancy, pain in my chest that made me think I was having a heart attack, and major issues with breathing. Anytime I partake in any type of cardio I just about pass out. Keeping up with my kids has been a major challenge. Currently the biggest things to rule out are lung disease and pulmonary hypertension. My echocardiogram indicates borderline HP. My CT scan indicates Atelectasis. I don't have time for either. If you see this, I'm asking you to please pray for me. I'm a mama that needs my energy and strength. I have to be healthy. During this time I will be doing VERY light exercise and sticking with a clean diet as usual ☺️ if any of you have any tips or suggestions for me, plse let me know 🤗
📸 atélectasie du poumon droit
L'atélectasie est une pathologie de l'appareil respiratoire correspondant à l'affaissement des alvéoles au niveau d'un territoire pulmonaire rendant sa ventilation impossible ❌
Sur ce cliché de radio thoracique on voit bien que le poumon droit est "Blanc" ou Opaque dans ta totalité et qu'il 🅰️ttire les éléments du médiastin vers lui (trachée ⬅️) on parle alors d'🅰️télectasie 👩🏻⚕️
L'atélectasie peut être due à un obstacle au niveau d'une bronche (corps étranger, mucus ou encore une tumeur), à une pression pulmonaire (causée par une accumulation de liquide ou d'air entre le poumon et la paroi thoracique) et à de nombreuses autres maladies pulmonaires.
