Hello Doctor, I Am Trying To Reach Out To You
I am trying to reach out to you to get some advise on health related issues of my wife. She is having breathing related problems so her doctor was advised to do a Chest X Ray. It was found two specific issues Sinus arrhythmia and slight hyperinflation.
Kindly if you can advise if these are serious, how it can be treated.
Thanks & Regards,
She needs further evaluation.
Hello dear welcome to Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and here is my advice.
I think she should get further evaluated doing some lungs and heart examinations in order to find how serious is this and what treatment can be used. She needs to do a x-ray of lungs, spirometry and EKG.
She can examine her lungs first to see which disease is causing it ex: asthma, chronic bronchitis,COPD , emphysema etc .
Hyperinflation of lungs can cause sinus arrhythmia and in the most severe cases even heart failure.
Bronchodilators can be used to help reduce hyperinflation and may be very helpful.
Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
