COPD Complications

Individuals with COPD can be in risk for serious complications that can not only put their health in jeopardy, but can also be fatal. Cor Pulmonale of COPD bring down extremity edema (swelling) in a patient with COPD is typically an indication of cor pulmonale (pulmonary hypertension and right-sided heart failure). Acute Exacerbations of COPD are portrayed by an unexpected increment of manifestations. Cough and sputum production increases. At the point when respiratory failure happens in a patient who slowly , there is a moderate decrease in lung capacity and rising levels of carbon dioxide in the blood. The expanding carbon dioxide makes an opiate impact in the patient, who gradually loses awareness and quits relaxing. Different difficulties of COPD incorporate pneumonia, polycythemia, and pneumothorax. Pneumonia caused by bacterial disease can prompt respiratory failure in these patients. Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most well-known reason for bacterial pneumonia in patients with COPD. Pneumothorax happens when a hole develops in the lung, enabling air to escape into the space between the lung and the chest wall and collapsing the lung. Polycythemia in COPD is the body's endeavor to adjust to decreased amount of blood oxygen by expanding the generation of oxygen-conveying red blood cells. While this might be useful temporarily, overproduction eventually clogs small blood vessels.
