Respiratory diseases - treatment in Russia
One can suspect a particular respiratory disease already on the basis of complaints and auscultatory picture of the lungs. The necessary diagnostic studies to clarify the nature of the pathology of the lungs are chest x-ray, data from the study of the function of external respiration, bronchoscopy, bronchography, computed tomography of the lungs, angiopulmonography. Of the laboratory methods for diagnosing lung diseases, the most important is the study of sputum for cytology, microbial flora, and atypical cells.
Treatment of lung diseases, depending on their nature, can be both conservative and surgical. Conservative measures in the treatment of diseases of the lungs and bronchi are aimed at thinning sputum, reducing its amount and facilitating evacuation from the bronchial tree, expanding the bronchi, relieving spasm of bronchial muscles, relieving the inflammatory process in the broncho-pulmonary system, and normalizing gas exchange in the lung tissue.
Surgical treatment of diseases of the lungs and other organs of the chest cavity in many cases is an emergency measure to eliminate dangerous, life-threatening conditions. Routine surgical treatment of lung diseases is carried out after a detailed examination and the impossibility of conservative treatment of the disease.
The simplest and most effective measures for the prevention of lung disease are quitting smoking and being examined by a pulmonologist once a year.
