Pulmonary Edema - Ways It Can be Treated!

Pulmonary Edema - Ways It Can be Treated!

Pulmonary edema is a disorder wherein fluid accumulates in the lungs leading to lack of oxygen in the body. The usual cause of pulmonary edema is congestive heart failure (the muscles of the heart are unable to pump blood). In this disorder, the heart has to work extra hard to pump blood, so this adds extra pressure on the blood vessels that are present in the lungs. In a bid to relieve this added pressure, fluid is released into the lungs by the blood vessels.

The function of your lungs is to take in oxygen from the air and circulate it in the bloodstream. However, fluid accumulation in the lungs impairs the ability to supply oxygen in the blood. As the oxygen does not reach the blood, the body gets deprived of oxygen.

The most frequent cause of pulmonary edema is congestive heart failure. Some other causes of pulmonary edema are pneumonia, failure of the kidney, damage to the lungs, high blood pressure and sepsis of the blood (infection). Apart from these internal medical causes, certain external factors such as exposure to high altitudes, drug overdose and inhalation of toxic substances can also cause pulmonary edema.

The symptoms of pulmonary edema are coughing, swelling of the legs, breathlessness and wheezing. In case of severe pulmonary edema, symptoms such as respiratory failure, shock and organ damage due to lack of oxygen may occur.

The initial step to treat pulmonary edema is to administer oxygen. Oxygen is given through a nasal cannula; it is a flexible tube made of plastic with two openings that allow oxygen to be delivered to the nostrils. The oxygen levels in your body are closely monitored by the doctor.

Based on the cause of pulmonary edema, the following treatments are administered:

  1. MorphineMorphine is administered to reduce breathing difficulties and anxiety.
  2. Preload reducers: These medications help relieve the pressure in the lungs and the heart. Diuretics are a type of preload reducers; it is also known to cause excessive urination.
  3. Afterload reducers: Afterload reducers are medications that relieve pressure from the left ventricle by dilating the blood vessels.
  4. Use of blood pressure medication: Pulmonary edema caused by blood pressure changes i.e. if the disorder is caused by changes in your blood pressure, then blood pressure medications are administered to get your pressure back to normal levels. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pulmonologist.

First Aid in Burns

Patients with severe thermal burns are at significant risk of death and major morbidity.
Look for evidence of respiratory distress and smoke inhalation injury, a common cause of death in the acute burn victim.
Laryngeal edema can develop suddenly and unexpectedly.
Burn depth and size determine fluid resuscitation and the need for transfer.
Vascular collapse from burn shock is a critical component.
Rapid, aggressive fluid resuscitation to reconstitute intravascular volume and maintain end?organ perfusion is crucial.
The fluid requirement during the initial 24 hours of treatment is 4 mL/kg of body weight for each percent of total body surface area burned, given IV. Superficial burns are excluded from this calculation. One?half of the calculated fluid need is given in the first 8 hours, and the remaining half is given over the subsequent 16 hours.
Monitor urine output is important.
Hourly urine output should be maintained at 0.5 mL/kg in adults.
Carbon monoxide and cyanide: Burn patients may be exposed to carbon monoxide, requiring immediate treatment with high?flow oxygen.
Cool and clean wounds, but avoid inducing hypothermia.
Remove any jewelry and any hot or burned clothing and obvious debris not densely adherent to the skin.
Irrigation with cool water may be used.
Topical antibiotics are applied to all non superficial burns.
Give opioids (morphine) to treat pain and give tetanus prophylaxis.

How to Choose Your Medicines Wisely for Back Pain?

How to Choose Your Medicines Wisely for Back Pain?


Pain killers-or analgesics-are drugs that work by interfering with the pain transmission process.

Depending  on the cause and type of your back pain, some analgesics may be more appropriate than others. Paracetamol and aspirin-like drugs(non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs [NSAIDs] are often used to relieve pain caused by musculo skeletal conditions, whereas the opoid analgesics,codeine and morphine, are more suitable for treating moderate or severe pain that originates from damage to the internal organs of the body (e.g. the heart,lungs, liver, bladder, kidney and reproductive organs). 

The appropriateness of the various types of drugs also depends on whether your pain is acute or chronic. Although many of the drugs used are the same, they may be used at different doses or more or less frequently.Whilst your doctor can prescribe you a number of different types of pain killers, in many cases, drugs that can be purchased without a prescription are sufficient to relieve many kinds of back pain. You can buy these drugs yourself from your pharmacist, and if you pay for your prescription, this may be cheaper than acquiring the same drug from your doctor with a prescription. 

Your pharmacist will advise you which types of drugs are most appropriate for you. Always take medication as directed on the packaging and consult your doctor if the pain persists.Since some types of analgesic are stronger than others, you will usually start with one of the weaker drugs and if this fails to relieve your pain sufficiently, you may work your way up to a stronger drug. 

If the stages in pain relief are considered to be like the rungs of a ladder, then most people will have their pain relieved at the lowest rung. 

The higher up the pain relief ladder you go, the more likely you are to experience unpleasant drug-related side-effects.
