For the prevention and treatment of pulmonary emphysema well it helps the potatoes. Fresh juice potato leaves. Begin drinking one spoon gradually increasing the volume to half a glass per day. Boiled potatoes. Make inhalation of boiled potatoes.

Etiology and pathogenesis EMPHYSEMA (EMPHYSEMA PULMONUM)

Emphysema is an irreversible condition in which there is atrophy of the pulmonary alveoli, decreased elasticity and increased airiness of lung tissue.

The causes of emphysema

Emphysema may develop as if the primary (essential emphysema) or as a result of chronic bronchitis, which is difficult exhale as a result of swelling of the mucous bronchial tubes. Concomitant chronic bronchitis peribronchial, interstitial pneumonia, pneumocytes create the conditions for malnutrition and alveoli that contribute to the development of emphysema. Ossification of the costal cartilages, spondiloarthrosis, rigidity of the thorax are favorable for the occurrence of emphysema. Often, however, bone changes are secondary. Describes the occurrence of emphysema after air-injury accompanied by concussion. In these cases the development of emphysema is associated with changes in the Central nervous system. Need to allocate senile emphysema, in which there are atrophic processes in the lung tissue, but no increase in its lightness.

Symptoms and course EMPHYSEMA (EMPHYSEMA PULMONUM)

The disease develops most often in men 40-60 years of age and runs a chronic. The main complaint - cough dry or with expectoration, depending on the nature of concomitant bronchitis, shortness of breath mainly expiratory.

View patients:

  • characterize puffy, cyanotic face,
  • cropped neck strained and exaggerated sternoclavicular-Sosnovyi muscles
  • swollen neck veins,
  • short barrel-shaped thorax with horizontally arranged ribs, always in inspiratory position.

Over the lower parts of the lungs sound box; the boundaries of the lungs are omitted, the excursion is reduced, the breath is weak, the exhalation is lengthened. Often defined dry and wet rales. X-ray examination can detect the increase in transparency of the lung fields. Relatively early revealed signs of respiratory distress (dyspnea, cyanosis), in the later stages of developing circulatory disorders, hypertrophy of the right ventricle with subsequent moderate extension of it, the ripple of the epigastrium, venous congestion with increased venous pressure, swelling of neck veins and liver, eventually peripheral edema. Once the onset of decompensation is difficult to treat. The disease duration of 10-15 years.

Recognition EMPHYSEMA (EMPHYSEMA PULMONUM)

Is known for trouble only in cases of advanced decompensation in elderly patients, when there is a need for differential diagnosis with cardiosclerosis. Anamnesis, typical changes of a thorax, an examination of the lungs, the epigastric pulsation to avoid error in diagnosis.

Predictions EMPHYSEMA (EMPHYSEMA PULMONUM)

Forecast for severe emphysema, particularly among young people, is poor. Matter the severity of associated pulmonary changes (of pneumoconiosis, bronchitis , etc.) and circulatory disorders.

Prevention EMPHYSEMA (EMPHYSEMA PULMONUM)

Cm. Bronchitis chronic

Treatment of EMPHYSEMA

Basically the same as when chronic bronchitis. In addition, the use breathing exercises (squeezing of the chest at the output to improve it, massage, "breathing chair"), "pneumatic" treatment - inhalation of a rarefied air. Climatic treatment, bed rest.
