Patient Testimonial for Prone Ventilation

Testimonial by Mrs. Malathi

Treatment for: Pneumonia
Treated by: Dr. Gopi Krishna Yedlapati
Patient location: Secunderabad

Pneumonia is a lung disease in which the air sacs of one or both lungs become swollen. The air sacs may be liquid or pus-filled, causing a cough that produces mucus, a fever, chills, and shortness of breath. Numerous species, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can cause pneumonia.

In some cases, the patient may require external assistance to breathe. To regulate breathing, the doctors may attach a mechanical ventilator to the trach tube. Air is cycled out of the body by the ventilator.

In this situation, the doctor employed the prone ventilation approach, in which the patient is given mechanical ventilation while lying in an upside-down position. Although there are several factors contributing to increased oxygenation during prone breathing, the reduction of lung compression and increased lung perfusion play a major role.

For the first three days, the patient showed no signs of improvement. But by the fifth day of breathing with the help of prone ventilation, the patient showed improvement. The patient was given antibiotics and advised not to skip any follow-up visits.

Mrs. Malathi from Secundrabad, underwent ICU Care and Prone Ventilation, under the supervision of Dr. Gopi Krishna Yedlapati, Consultant Interventional Pulmonologist, Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad.
