The lungs. The air you breathe, the life that “perpetuates” in you, relatively speaking, reaches your body from this important device, the respiratory system, which plays an important part in removing the CO2, dioxide from your cardio-vascular system carbon, toxic and potentially lethal to us and delivering oxygen, important, vital, the oxygen that reaches these points, close or not to the lungs, is the oxidizer that makes the necessary air between fuel (in our case glucose) and oxidizer, already exposed as oxygen. And at this point, insulin is needed. without pancreas… (…)…!

Its powerful (…) brain, its powerful muscles, its precise vision, its “refined” taste and smell are useless. Five minutes after the supply of this oxidizer fails, your brain dies. What dies afterwards? What does it matter, everything will end up dying in a few minutes. Take good care of your lungs!

All organs are important! And The Lungs then !!!

But in times of Coronavirus pandemic, it is good to take a look at it.

  • Some lung problems can be more serious in people with HIV and occur more frequently.
  • Smoking is a very common cause of lung disease.
  • Antibiotics can be used to treat and prevent bacterial lung infections.
  • Regular exercise can improve the efficiency of your lungs.
It is not just the heart that the ribs protect. In the case of the heart there is the "external" as well, but the ribs are the first great wall before damage to the lungs,

Because, between the two lungs it is (in?) Just the right lung to be May I don't know! All I know, I repeat, is that I know nothing!

The lungs are organs found in the chest, on both sides of the heart, protected by the ribs. The right lung tends to be larger than the left lung. The lungs are covered with a thin layer, or membrane, called pleura, mine, my friends, readers, followers, had the indecency to break up in one night, in December, causing a very annoying pain inside the box thoracic with another membrane. The two membranes slide over each other as we breathe, allowing the lungs to expand and contract. Inside, the lungs look like sponges and are made up of a mass of thin tubes. The smallest of these tubes are air pockets called alveoli, whose walls are covered by tiny blood vessels.

The lungs and breathing

The lungs' role is to absorb oxygen from the air and transfer it to the blood, where it circulates throughout the body. Each time you breathe the air is transported through the nose, or the throat, into the windpipe and into two smaller tubes called bronchi; one going to the left lung, the other to the right. The air is then divided into smaller airways, called bronchioles, until it reaches the alveoli. Inside the alveoli, oxygen moves to the tiny blood vessels that form the walls and is picked up by the red blood cells ready to be transported by the body. At the same time, waste in the form of carbon dioxide moves in the opposite direction; traveling from the blood to the alveoli and forward through the lungs to be exhaled.

Lung disease

Symptoms such as coughing, shortness of breath, coughing up blood, phlegm or mucus and pain in Like everyone else, people with HIV can get colds or influenza (flu), which can affect the chest, causing symptoms such as coughing and phlegm production. They usually disappear within a few days and do not cause lasting damage. There are, however, some lung problems that are seen more often in people with HIV that can be very serious. Although someone can get sick with bacterial pneumonia, pleurisy (inflammation of the membrane surrounding the lungs) and bronchitis, they can be more severe in people with HIV and occur more often, especially if they have a depressed immune system.
Pneumocystosis or HIV Pneumonia How to Treat?
Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) affects the lungs and is usually seen only in people with a CD4 count below 200. It is rare in countries where people have access to modern medical care. Cancer of Kaposi's sarcoma e non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, which are more common in people with very low CD4 counts, can also affect the lungs.


Tuberculosis (TB) is seen in rising rates among people with HIV and, globally, is the leading cause of disease and death among people with HIV. Tuberculosis can develop at any time during HIV infection. People with weakened immune systems are more vulnerable to TB infection. Tuberculosis can be treated and cured.
Tuberculosis and HIV


Smoking is a very common cause of lung problems and is the main cause of lung cancer. Lung cancer is more common in HIV-positive people than in the general HIV-negative population. Smoking is also the leading cause of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a group of lung diseases that cause breathing difficulties. Studies have shown that people with HIV have an increased risk of COPD, regardless of whether they smoke or not. However, smokers are much more likely to report symptoms of COPD. One study found that smoking has a greater impact on COPD in people living with HIV than in HIV-negative people.


If you have any breathing problems, your doctor will listen to your chest with a stethoscope to assess how well your lungs are working. Other common tests to check for infection or disorders include chest X-rays and, sometimes, an induced sputum test, in which a mist of salt water is inhaled to "induce" the patient to expel expectoration from the lungs. A bronchoscopy can also be used, where a small camera is passed through the nose, and a transbronchial biopsy involves taking small samples of lung tissue for verification. Alternatively, a small piece of pleura can be removed through the chest wall; a pleural biopsy. Lung function tests, which measure the ability to transfer oxygen and how well the lungs are inflated, can also be used. A body scan can be used to look for some infections or cancers.
CD4 Counting and Its Importance in ART Success


Antibiotics can be used to treat and prevent bacterial lung infections, such as pneumonia, and can also be used successfully to treat PCP and TB. HIV treatment can prevent your immune system from becoming so weak that you develop serious lung infections. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery are used to treat cancers in the lungs.

Keep your lungs healthy

O Smoking is responsible for many lung diseases, so quitting smoking will improve the health of your lungs. Doing Regular exercises that leave you breathless improves the efficiency of your lungs. Ensuring that you receive regular check-ups at your HIV clinic means that you are monitored and treated for possible HIV-related lung problems. Taking HIV treatment will keep your immune system strong. And eating a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables will help promote your overall health.

If you need to talk and couldn't find me or Beto Volpe, this is a much more balanced option, Beto, you can also send your message. Maybe I can take a while. I check the messages at noon, shortly after, in fact, at 20:00.
It's getting harder and harder for me, this whole thing, to type.
And I end up needing an interval between one paragraph and another.

But be sure of one thing I learned:

Time and patience solve just about everything!
