3) Much less common are the "typical-pattern" pneumonias (also called organizing pneumonia) sometimes seen with amiodarone. In this condition, the chest x-ray shows a localized area of congestion virtually identical to those seen with bacterial pneumonia . For this reason, this form of amiodarone lung toxicity is almost always mistaken for a bacterial pneumonia and is treated accordingly. It is usually only when the pneumonia fails to improve with antibiotics that the diagnosis of amiodarone lung toxicity is finally considered.
I have had ASTHMA my whole life but about 7 years ago my asthma got so bad and was diagnosed of EMPHYSEMA/COPD which was most likely due to the asthma. I was on double antibiotics and steroids, still didn’t feel any better. My lungs were constantly wheezing in all four chambers, i already used Advair, Spiriva, and Albuterol in my nebulizer, they just didn’t do much. April 2016 my sister in-law told us about Rich Herbs Foundation where she ordered herbs that effectively treated her arthritis. We ordered their COPD herbal treatment after reading alot of positive reviews, i am happy to report this COPD herbal treatment reversed my lungs condition. My quality of life has greatly improved and every one of my symptoms including difficulty breathing and wheezing are gone. Their official web page is ww w. richherbsfoundation. c om. I will be 52 soon and have never been healthier!
If you have been able to catch the disease in its earliest stages, there will come a time after 12 to 18 months (if you’re very fortunate) when the positive impact of steriods will have run their course. The fibrosis will have taken a real hold of your Westies’ lungs and they will have been fighting it off for as long as they can. The three clips of Harry above illustrate this perfectly. Normally by this stage it will be becoming too much for your beloved pet to bear not to mention yourself having to see your pet go through this. They will be starting to gasp for air at this stage and their tongue and gums will be more blue than the rich pink colour you’ve been used to seeing.
