For a healthy life,in addition to a lively beating heart, the lungs are also indispensable organs. The lungs are the most important part of the respiratory system, the fresh oxygen and exhaust gas we inhale in the body need to be exchanged here, and then the oxygen enters the body with the blood. At the same time, the lungs have many functions such as regulating body fluids and hematopoiesis, so the lungs are of great significance to the human body.
In recent years, due to many factors such as smoking, passive smoking, environmental pollution and work, more and more lung diseases have appeared around us. Among them, the incidence and mortality of lung cancer are ranked first in cancer, and are well-deserved kings of cancer. Because of this, everyone is paying more and more attention to lung health.
Once the following symptoms appear, it may be a sign of lung disease
1.Cough. Since the lungs are the most important part of breathing, when there are problems with the lungs, there will be some respiratory manifestations,for example, coughing is one of the common symptoms. It is different from other respiratory diseases, if without diagnosis,you directly use cough medicine to cure cough, the effect is not good, which may cause recurring cough and even develop cough white sputum and hemoptysis etc.
2.Chest tightness and shortness of breath. Obviously, feel that the physical strength is not as good as before, and panting every walk few steps, even breathless. Excluding the possibility of heart disease, it is necessary to highly suspect lung disease. Chest tightness and shortnness of breath are typical manifestations of decreased pulmonary capacity. In severe cases, it may even develop dyspnea and a strong sense of suffocation, which requires vigilance.
3. Chest pain. The lungs are on both sides of our chest cavity, so when there is a problem with the lungs, not only will affect the respiratory system, but also patients will have chest pain symptoms. For example, tuberculosis, lung cancer, pneumonia or pulmonary embolism etc., there will be strange pain. If you always feel pain or tingling in the chest recently, it is necessary to carry out a comprehensive lung examination.
4. Fever symptoms. In the case of certain viral infections, patients with lung diseases are often accompanied by fever symptoms, such as tuberculosis, pneumonia, and lung abscess. In addition, when lung cancer develops to a certain stage, the tumor cell necrosis metabolism increases, and fever symptoms also appear. Clinically, it is called "cancer fever", mainly low fever, and the body temperature is maintained at about 38 ℃.
5.Clubbed fingers. Based on current clinical data, clubbed fingers is most common disease in lung tumors and chronic obstructive pulmonary. After the lungs become cancerous, the cancer cells may block the airway, resulting in a lack of fresh blood oxygen supply at the extremities of the limbs, plus the patient's own endocrine disorders and other factors, which will eventually induce "clubbed finger" symptoms. That is, the end of the patient's finger or toe is abnormally hyperplastic and swollen, and looks like a drumstick.
The above five symptoms may be a sign of lung disease, especially when the symptoms such as long coughing and hemoptysis occur, you need to seek medical attention to check the lungs in time, and if necessary, you can further observe the lungs by enhancing ct. Once diagnosed as chronic lung disease or lung cancer, scientific treatment should be carried out according to doctor's recommendations.
The benefit of inhaling Oxygen for the lungs
Inhaling oxygen has a good treatment for asthma. Asthma is caused by bronchiolitis and other conditions that weaken the ventilation function of the alveoli and the outside.Inhaling oxygen can increase the oxygen concentration in the alveoli and help relieve asthma; also can effectively treat emphysema, pulmonary heart disease, and chronic bronchitis. The listed disease are all caused by severe lacking of oxygen. Oxygen inhalation can slow down the patient's hypoxic symptoms and significantly increase blood oxygen saturation, which is more effective than medication.
