asbestosis in my neighborhood

One day when explaining a bit about lung disease pulmonary asbestosis to one of my neighbors, I was just explaining what it is asbestosis?. he seemed quite interested in my explanation of asbestosis.

Somehow in the next day he came to my house and he said he wanted to know more detail about asbestosis like, what it is asbestosis?, The symptoms of asbestosis and others about asbestosis.

I asked him, for what you find out more about this and he replied asbestosis because I work in the field of manufacture of asbestos. The answer that made me quite surprised because I know the cause asbestosis in general is asbestos. I told him how long have you worked in the field of manufacture of asbestos and he answered just three months ago.

occurs between our brief conversation between the two of us But I thought about asbestosis information I gave was enough to make him understand. Such conversations that happen between us, let's say my neighbor's name is Andy.

ANDI         : Explain to me what it is asbestosis?
ME             : Asbestosis is a respiratory disease caused by inhaling asbestos fibers, in which the lungs extensive scar tissue is formed.
Asbestos fibers consist of silicate minerals with different chemical composition. If inhaled, asbestos fibers settle in the lungs, causing scarring. Inhalation of asbestos can also cause thickening of the pleura (the membrane that lines the lungs).

ANDI       : What are the causes asbestosis?
ME           : Inhalation of asbestos fibers can cause scarring (fibrosis) in the lungs. Lung tissue fibrosis that form can not inflate and deflate properly. Severity of the disease depends on the duration of exposure and the number of fibers inhaled.

Exposure to asbestos can be found in the mining and milling industries, construction and other industries. Exposure to asbestos workers' families can also occur from particles brought home on the clothing workers.
Diseases caused by asbestos include:
  •     Pleural plaques
  •     Malignant mesothelioma
  •     Pleural effusion.

ANDI        : What are symptoms asbestosis?
ME            : Symptoms asbestosis appear gradually and emerging only after the formation of scar tissue in large quantities and the lungs lose their elasticity.

The first symptoms are shortness of breath and a mild decrease in the ability to perform calisthenics. About 15% of patients, will experience severe shortness of breath and respiratory failure.

Heavy smokers with chronic bronchitis and asbestosis, will suffer from coughing and wheezing. Inhaling asbestos fibers can sometimes lead to accumulation of fluid in the space between two membranes lining the lungs. Although rare, asbestos can also cause Tumo called mesotheliomas in the pleura or the lining of the abdomen, called peritoneal mesotheliomas.

Mesotheliomas caused by asbestos are malignant and incurable. Mesotheliomas generally arise after exposure krokidolit, one of four types of asbestos. Amosit, the other type, also cause mesotelioma.Krisotil may not cause mesothelioma, but sometimes tainted by tremolit that can cause mesothelioma. Mesothelioma usually occurs after exposure for 30-40 years.

Lung cancer will occur in patients with asbestosis who also smoke, especially those who smoke more than one pack a day.
Other symptoms that may be found:
  •     cough
  •     tightness in chest
  •     chest pain
  •     nail abnormalities or clubbing of fingers (fingers form that resembles a drum percussion).

ANDI         : How is the diagnosis of asbestosis?
ME             : On physical examination using a stethoscope, will hear the sound crackles. To confirm the diagnosis, usually done the following checks:
  •     Chest X-rays
  •     Lung function tests
  •     CT scan of the lung.

ANDI       : How is the treatment asbestosis?
ME           : supportive treatment to cope with the symptoms is to remove mucus / phlegm from the lungs through the procedure postural drainage, chest percussion and vibration. Given drugs to thin the mucus spray. May need to be given oxygen, either through a facemask (mask) or through a plastic tube mounted on the nostril. Sometimes performed lung transplantation. Fatal mesothelioma, chemotherapy is not very useful and removal of the tumor does not cure cancer.

After I explained all that he asked about the lung disease asbestosis caused by asbestos which he says that he has understood what is asbestosis?.

There is one thing he's saying really makes me very surprised when diya stated that she experienced symptoms asbestosis that I mentioned earlier. I paused to think whether he is experiencing the symptoms asbestosis did she say?, Whether it's as fast as asbestos fibers that cause asbestosis attacking his lungs? and whether this is just excessive worries me alone.

I immediately advised him to get his medicine memerikskan lung asbestosis terrible neighbor problem to ascertain whether the symptoms he experienced the symptoms asbestosis or just plain gejalas influ inza. The next day he came again to my house and he said that he had checked himself into the lung doctor. I asked him how the results of the examination the doctor he said I should wait for the results laboratium for sure what really happened to him.

How do you think happened to the neighbor is my neighbor, whether he was experiencing was actually symptoms asbestosis or just common cold symptoms. y really is happening is because the symptoms asbestosis was before he worked in the manufacture of asbestos he had lived next asbestos manufacturing plant is in the moments before he worked at the plant.
