Chest diseases and tuberculosis

In the Chest Diseases and Tuberculosis Department of
hospitals and private health institutions, diagnosis and treatments are carried
out for diseases such as lung cancer, pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma,
respiratory failure and tuberculosis. Treatments carried out by doctors
with the title of chest diseases specialist are aimed at preventing or ending
all diseases that occur in the respiratory tract diseases, lungs and bronchial
tubes that also affect the nose, pharynx and throat.

About the Chapter

Physicians working in the Department of Chest Diseases
and Tuberculosis are responsible for many important practices regarding sick
individuals. Physicians, who make the diagnosis of the disease by
examining the medical history and physical examination of the patients, may
request different tests such as chest X-ray, skin and blood tests, and
respiratory function tests in order to make a clear diagnosis of the
patient. Physicians, who clarify their diagnosis in the light of the data
obtained from the test results, provide the treatment of the disease with both
drug therapy and surgical interventions.

Lung Diseases

Asthma and COPD are the most common cases in chest
diseases in which diseases such as collection of water in the chest, shortness
of breath, asthma, bronchitis, tuberculosis (tuberculosis), pleurisy, pneumonia
is examined. is doing. Dust, bristle etc. Individuals who are
disturbed by things such as asthma may be faced with asthma attacks, such
symptoms make it easier to diagnose as a symptom of asthma. The first
application that should be done by specialist doctors is to eliminate the
emergency situation related to asthma attacks. The most common complaints
in asthma patients are,

Prolonged chronic coughs

Whistling-like sounds coming from the chest,

Shortness of breath,

It is a constant feeling of congestion in the chest.

COPD, which is called chronic bronchitis, manifests
itself with the restriction of the air taken due to the obstruction of the
airways in the lungs. Symptoms such as cough with phlegm, wheezing,
coughing up blood, feeling of congestion in the chest, swelling of the feet,
which are signs of heart failure, are among the signs of COPD disease. In
order to achieve improvement in lung diseases, it is imperative that the treatment
processes given by the doctors are continued in a complete manner. It is
important to stay away from dusty and smoky environments, to quit smoking and
tobacco habits, and to use drugs regularly.

Physicians who recommend oxygen therapy for lung diseases
recommend that the patient use oxygen for at least 15 hours a
day. Physicians, who also recommend long-term oxygen therapy according to
the patient’s condition, may consider the treatment by means of oxygen devices
appropriate. These devices, which produce oxygen from the room air, allow
the patient to have a better respiratory pattern.


Tuberculosis, which has been known for thousands of years and is among the
most deadly diseases in the past, can negatively affect the functioning of the
body by damaging all organs, especially the lungs. Untreated or wrong
treatment can lead to situations that result in absolute death. Early
diagnosis is of great importance in the disease that completely disappears with
treatment. Healing can be achieved in a sufficient time and with the right
treatment applications, definitively and permanently. In order to diagnose
tuberculosis, tuberculosis microbe must be seen in the
sputum. Tuberculosis disease, in which a definitive diagnosis is made by
chest X-ray,

Night sweats with fever,

prolonged cough,



weight loss

Chest pains and stinging

spitting blood,

melancholic behavior,

The symptoms of the disease appear intermittently and
progress slowly, the tuberculosis microbe, which causes severe damage on the
organ to which it is attached, usually spreads by attaching to the
lung. Medicines given against microbes, which are analyzed with the help
of laboratory examinations and microscope, are offered to the patient free of

Tuberculosis drugs given through tuberculosis
dispensaries are determined according to the last condition of the patient, and
tuberculosis struggle is carried out with four different
drugs. Tuberculosis disease, which is fought with very powerful drugs
today, is completely ineffective as a result of regular
treatment. Continuing the treatment for a long time without interruption
in order to get rid of the tuberculosis microbe, which reproduces very slowly
compared to other types of microbes, is a very important element in terms of
defeating the disease.

Although resting, special nutrition programs and avoiding
negativities such as stress affect the patient’s poor course, taking
precautions alone is insufficient for the treatment of the disease. In
case of drug resistance in the tuberculosis patient, longer-term treatment with
stronger drugs is mandatory to overcome the disease.
