How quick is the onset of pulmonary aspiration symptoms is it immediately after inhalation?


i inhaled a piece of sandwhich like a fairly small particle and i coughed a bit but didnt see it come flying out so just wondering whats going to happen associated with pulmonary aspiration i am 17
----------

The problems with aspiration are 1) choking and 2) infection. Since you dislodged the food, it either went down the right pipe (most likely) or ended up in a lung. The main concern with aspiration is pneumonia, which takes a few days to develop. More likely than not you are going to be fine :)  (+ info)

Was pulmonary lymphoma one of the diseases caused by being a worker a ground zero after 9/11?


My aunt was just diagnosed with pulmonary lymphoma. I do not know if it is Hodgkin or Non-Hodgkin. Anyway, she worked at ground zero as part of the rescue effort. Basically, I just want to know if this was a disease caused by working at ground zero.
----------

Only a doctor could determine that, not somebody on Y/A.

There was just an article in one of the NYC papers the other day about a higher-than-normal incident of multiple myeloma in younger GZ workers but they don't know if it's just because they've been monitoring people who worked at GZ so much more closely. Your aunt is likely registered with the WTC Health Registry, so she should report this in. They send us questionnaires at least once a year and ask us to participate in outside studies that come up (I am a survivor, but workers, first responders, area residents, etc., are in the registry).

I encourage everyone to ask your representatives to support the continuation of health care services for the WTC community. The bill is going through the process, I know, but I don't know exactly what stage it's in right now.

Best of health to your aunt as she struggles with this disease.  (+ info)

What is the life expectancy of a person with CRF, lupus, and pulmonary fibrosis?


My sister-in-law has all three diseases. She has had lupus since 1999, renal failure and pulmonary fibrosis since 2006. She now weighs a small 59 pounds at 36 years old. Everywhere I research and every doctor I ask can not give me an honest answer. All I am told is her "quality of life" speech. I need some answers. How much longer can she expect to live? Please no insulting remarks from anyone.
----------

The weight coupled with the diseases doesn't sound good at all. If her weight continues to drop her life expectancy is shortened dramatically. Prayers with your family.  (+ info)

ScienceDaily (June 14, 2001) — BOSTON – Researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and their colleagues have found that people who smoke marijuana may increase their risk of a heart attack. In a study of nearly 4,000 people who had suffered a heart attack, the researchers observed that a person’s chance of having a heart attack, particularly those who are already at risk for heart disease, increased nearly five times during the first hour after smoking marijuana.

Is there any connection between the deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism?


What is the difference between a pulmonary embolus and pulmonary infarct?
----------

read this "so yes to your question"

http://blog.geekwithfibroids.com/2006/09/13/has-anyone-had-problems-with-deep-vein-thrombosis/

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Only about half of the people with deep vein thrombosis have symptoms. The symptoms may include:

* Swollen area of the leg.
* Pain or tenderness in the leg. The pain is usually in one leg and may be felt only when standing or walking.
* Increased warmth in the area of the leg that is swollen or in pain.
* Red or discolored skin.

Pulmonary Embolism

Some people find out that they have deep vein thrombosis only after the clot has moved from the leg and traveled to the lung (pulmonary embolism). The symptoms may include:

* Chest pain when you take a deep breath
* Shortness of breath  (+ info)

Is a Pulmonary Embolism the same thing as a heart attack?


I'ms tudying for a fnial, and I know a myocardial infarction is the same thing as a heart attack, and the pulmonary embolism is incredibly similar to both in definition. I'm looking for somebody to clarify for me.
Thanks guys. that cleared it up. the pulmonary part shoulda given it away.
----------

A pulmonary embolism is a blood clot in the lung, which will certainly kill you but it's not a heart attack.  (+ info)

what si the treatment for the child with pulmonary tuberculosis and with long term home oxygen therapy?


the child is now 7 years old having pulmonary tuberculosis and with three years of home oxygen therapy. please tell is there any treatment that can cure this disease or tell me any alternate solution for this as quick as possible. waiting for answers.
----------

Tuberculosis can be treated with antibiotics (several types at the same time) and the child will probably need a short stint in hospital to start with. After the treatment is working and some improve has started to come through, the child can then be returned home to continue with the medication. So get the doctors involved in this case as soon as possible.  (+ info)
