The doctor initially diagnosed with pulmonary embolism.
CT pulmonary angiography and vascular ultrasound examination revealed bilateral pulmonary pulmonary embolism lesions and venous thrombosis in the lower extremities.
After the hospital adopted thrombolysis, anticoagulation and other rescue measures, it has turned into danger.
Coincidentally, a 37-year-old patient with severe pulmonary embolism who was transferred from Wuhu, Anhui to Gulou Hospital on August 22, also forced computer work for a long time. Due to his severe pulmonary embolism, the local treatment was not relieved for one month.Suppression saves lives.
Professor Zhang Deping, director of the Department of Respiratory Medicine at Gulou Hospital, pointed out that the main cause of pulmonary embolism is prolonged sitting and lying, lower blood flow in the lower limbs, and thrombosis gradually formed.
Pulmonary embolism is easily misdiagnosed as pneumonia and heart disease.
It is more common in middle-aged and elderly patients who have been bedridden for a long time, including diabetes, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, cancer, and fractures. These two patients are young and usually have no other problems.
The occurrence of pulmonary embolism is entirely related to their long periods of sitting in front of the computer and working inactivity.
Professor Zhang Deping reminded people that there are three typical symptoms of pulmonary embolism: chest pain, chest tightness, and hemoptysis.
Sudden dizziness, falls, palpitation, sweating and other symptoms are about to occur, and some will have headaches, limb pain and swelling.
Therefore, for a long time sitting in front of a computer or working on the Internet for 1-2 hours, you should stand up and exercise, consciously move your lower limbs, do squats and other actions to speed up blood flow in the lower limbs, and you can usually wear elastic socks;Regularly massage your lower limbs to promote blood circulation.
As soon as symptoms such as chest pain and tightness occur, they should be immediately sent to the hospital for emergency treatment.
