    Man coughs up part of lung while being treated for heart failure

    [And to think, I always used that term in jest. Who knew it was possible? Dennis]


    Man coughs up part of lung while being treated for heart failure

    A 36-year-old California man who was admitted to the intensive care unit with chronic heart failure was coughing so severely that he hacked up a piece of his lung. The unidentified patient, whose case was written about in the New England Journal of Medicine, was receiving treatment at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Medical Center and had previously been fitted with a pacemaker.


    Over the course of a week, the patient had progressed to coughing up phlegm and blood, and during a particularly extreme bout had dislodged a piece of a bronchial tube from his right lung.

    “The right bronchial tree consists of three segmental branches in the upper lobe, two segmental branches in the middle lobe, and five segmental branches in the lower lobe,” the case report’s authors wrote. “The patient’s trachea was subsequently intubated, and flexible bronchoscopy revealed a small amount of blood in the basilar branches of the right lower lobe.”

    He was extubated two days later, and he had no further instances of coughing up blood, but he died one week later due to complications of heart failure.

    Seen that, sort of. Kept it on my desk in a small jar of formalin. 1-1/4" square piece of lung blown out the entrance hole from a point-blank rifle shot, no exit. Fought that one hard. He made it only to succumb to cancer before long. But he had a chance to say goodby to family first.
