Recommended Conferences for Pleural Effusion

Pleural Effusion

As per available reports about 8 relevant journals, 16 Conferences proceedings, 3 conferences are presently dedicated exclusively to breathing disorder and about 2,070 articles are being published on breathing disorder.

Pleural effusion is an abnormal amount of fluid around the lung. Pleural effusions can result from many medical conditions. Most pleural effusions are not serious by themselves, but some require treatment to avoid problems.

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals  which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.

Scope and Importance

The pleura is a thin membrane that lines the surface of the lungs and the inside of the chest wall outside the lungs. In pleural effusions, fluid accumulates in the space between the layers of pleura. Normally, only teaspoons of watery fluid are present in the pleural space, allowing the lungs to move smoothly within the chest cavity during breathing.
Numerous medical conditions can cause pleural effusions. Some of the more common causes are:
• Congestive heart failure
• Pneumonia
• Liver disease
• End-stage renal disease
• Nephrotic syndrome 
• Cancer
• Pulmonary embolism
• Lupus and other autoimmune conditions
Excessive fluid may accumulate because the body does not handle fluid properly (such as in congestive heart failure, or kidney and liver disease). The fluid in pleural effusions also may result from inflammation, such as in pneumonia, autoimmune disease, and many other conditions.

Symptoms of Pleural Effusions
Pleural effusions often cause no symptoms. Symptoms are more likely when a pleural effusion is moderate or large-sized, or if inflammation is present. Symptoms of pleural effusions may include:
• Shortness of breath
• Chest pain, especially on breathing in deeply (pleurisy, or pleuritic pain)
• Fever
• Cough

Diagnosis of Pleural Effusions
Most often, pleural effusions are discovered on imaging tests. Common tests used to identify pleural effusions include: Chest X-ray film, Computed tomography (CT scan) and Ultrasound Once a pleural effusion is identified on imaging, a fluid sample is usually taken to determine the pleural effusion's character and seriousness. In a procedure called thoracentesis, a doctor inserts a needle and a catheter between the ribs, into the pleural space. A small amount of fluid is withdrawn for testing; a large amount can be removed simultaneously to relieve symptoms.

Market Analysis

The global respiratory care devices market was expected to be worth $8.8 billion in 2010 and is estimated to reach $13.5 billion by 2015, growing at a CAGR of 8.8% from 2010-2015. The therapeutics devices market dominates the global respiratory care market, followed by monitoring devices and disposables. Within the therapeutics devices market, positive airway pressure devices account for the largest share and is expected to be $5.2 billion by the year 2015. The pulse oximeters market dominates the respiratory monitoring devices segment and is expected to reach a market size of $1.7 billion by the year 2015. Within the respiratory diagnostic devices segment, spirometers dominate the market with an estimated share of $489 million by 2015.
