Chronic Bronchitis Smoking - General Information on Acute Bronchitis
Definition: Bronchitis is the inflammation (acute or cronic )of the trachea, bronchi. Acute bronchitis is caused by viral or bacterial infection and heal without complications. Adults that smoke develop chronic bronchitis that cannot be cured.

Sputum Culture is Indicated
To be performed to put a correct diagnosis of the infection and to identify the most appropriate antibiotic. The patient is asked to spit in a cup and than the sample is grown in the laboratory to see which organisms are present. Sometimes the sputum may be collected using bronchoscopy, the patient is given a local anesthetic and the tube is passed through the airways to collect a sputum sample. Blood tests and x-rays are also recommended, the measuring of the oxygen and carbon dioxide are also important. It is always better to have compositions with as little corrections in it as possible. This is why we have written this composition on Symptoms Bronchitis with no corrections for the reader to be more interested in reading it.
  • Description Acute bronchitis appears mostly in the winter, more often caused by viral infection.
  • Although the cough may persist longer acute bronchitis is solved in two weeks, acute bronchitis complication is pneumonia in children.
  • The presentation of an article on Acute Bronchitis plays an important role in getting the reader interested in reading it.
  • This is the reason for this presentation, which has gotten you interested in reading it!

Cough Suppressants May be Used Only When the Cough is Dry
Cough is useful because brings up extra mucus and irritants from the lungs and this way stops the mucus to accumulate in the airways and producing pneumonia bacteria. Tetracycline or ampicillin are used in the treatment of acute bronchitis, but good results have been obtained with trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim or Septra) and azithromycin (Zithromax) and clarithromycin (Biaxin). In children acute bronchitis amoxicillin (Amoxil, Pentamox, Sumox, Trimox)is recommended, inhaler sprays to dilatate the bronchis and clear aut the mucus are also good. It is important to rest sufficiently, to eat well, avoid air pollution and irritants. Childrens wash their hands regularly and as a preventive measure they are artificially immunized against pneumonia. Wink

Demographics Bronchitis affects predominantly pre-school and school age children, especially during winter time. Cause and symptoms Bronchitis begins with the symptoms of a cold, running nose, coughing, sneezing, fever of 102F ( 8C), greenish yellow sputum. In three to five days most of the symptoms disappear, but coughing may continue for some time. If the acute bronchitis is complicated with bacterial infection the fever and a general feeling of illness persists. The bacterial infection should be treated with antibiotics, if the cough doesn't get away it may be asthma or pneumonia. In direct proportion with the stage of the disease cure bronchitis has those symptoms: dry, hacking, unproductive cough, runny nose, sore throat, back and other muscle pains, general malaise, headache, fever, chills. It is rather interesting to note that people like reading about Bronchitis Complication if they are presented in an easy and clear way. The presentation of an article too is important for one to entice people to read it! :o.

Treatment Bronchitis may be treated by home care if it's not complicated, resting, not smocking and drinking plenty of fluids, for fever you may take Tylenol, Panadol, Datril.

COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a group of diseases that consist of chronic bronchitis, emphysema and asthmatic bronchitis. Oral corticosteroids tend to work best against COPD with an asthmatic component. Oral corticosteroid is a sufferer of COPD. Oral corticosteroids reduce irritation, swelling and mucus production. A physician may initiate a short trial in patients to determine if they respond to steroids. This trial lasts two to three weeks. If there is no immediate effect after continuous use of oral corticosteroids, this means that they have no value for the use of oral corticosteroids. Wink

Quote:Long term use of corticosteroids has many side effects such as water retention, bruising, puffy face, increased appetite, weight gain and stomach irritation. It may also impair bone metabolism. For an elderly population, the continuous use of oral corticosteroids for COPD has possible cardiac side effects. Recent studies notice that patients who show continuous use of oral corticosteroids for COPD may also suffer from acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Some proof suggests that patients with COPD who respond to corticosteroids have eosinophilic inflammation and other attributes of an asthma phenotype. Research on oral corticosteroids for COPD exacerbations reports improve lung function and reduced hospitalization. The incidence of treatment failure in the form of return to the hospital, death, or the need for a tube inserted through the mouth or nose and into the chest to deliver oxygen is also reduced. The completion of this article on Asthmatic Bronchitis was our prerogative since the past one month. However, we completed it within a matter of fifteen days!

Corticosteroid Tablet is Used When the Inflammation Becomes Severe
Oral corticosteroids have clinically significant effects on symptoms, exacerbations and health status. Oral corticosteroids inconsistently progress lung function in stable outpatients with COPD. In addition, there is a realistic proof for the use of systemic corticosteroids during acute exacerbations of COPD. Using oral corticosteroids for COPD patients decrease death rate and hospitalization. The information available on Bronchitis is infinite. There just seems to be so much to learn about, and to write about on Bronchitis.

Oral Corticosteroids Should be Used Carefully, to Avoid Excessive Weight Loss
Oral corticosteroid reduces the duration and impact of exacerbations. They improve the airflow and lung function, but there are increased side effects such as diabetes and osteoporosis. Low dose oral corticosteroid is often used in the treatment of acute exacerbations of COPD. Oral corticosteroids may be used when symptoms rapidly worsen (COPD exacerbation), especially when there is an increased mucus production. This can be considered to be a valuable article on Chronic Bronchitis. It is because there is so much to learn about Chronic Bronchitis here.

Poor tissue oxygenation is the typical feature for people with asthma, heart disease, chronic fatigue, diabetes, bronchitis, cancer, HIV, acne, infertility, and many other disorders. This is known to medical professionals, but you may guess about this fact too. Why?

10 s of oxygen - severely sick, critically and terminally ill patients, usually hospitalized. 10-20 s - sick patients with numerous complaints and, often, on daily medication.

You may know that the main test for heart patients (exercise electrocardiogram or Stress test) mainly reflects oxygenation of the heart and other muscles of the human body. No wonder, that agent 007, in the most recent movie "Casino Roayle", when he had a heart attack, also had very heavy breathing. There is sure to be a grin on your face once you get to read this article on Diabetes Bronchitis. This is because you are sure to realize that all this matter is so obvious, you wonder how come you never got to know about it!

More information about translated original Russian and Western research on breathing, health, how to improve one's oxygenation, and the Buteyko method can be found on my website http://www.normalbreathing.com The more readers we get to this writing on Bronchitis, the more encouragement we get to produce similar, interesting articles for you to read. So read on and pass it to your friends.

Hence, abnormal oxygen transport is the typical and indispensable feature for chronic conditions. How to measure body oxygen content? While measurements of tissue oxygenation require special equipment, you can do a simple test that is very sensitive to tissue oxygenation. Measure your breath holding time. How it is done? The prominent Russian physiologist who worked for the first Soviet spaceship missions Dr. KP Buteyko, MD was the head of the respiratory laboratory in the 1960s. He stated about 40 years ago, "Oxygen content in the organism can be found using a simple method: after exhalation, observe, how long the person can pause their breath without stress." Go ahead and read this article on Bronchitis Conditions. We would also appreciate it if you could give us an analysis on it for us to make any needed changes to it.

Finally, Cancer Has Cellular Hypoxia as Its Key Cause
Nobel Laureate, Dr. Otto Warburg, in his article "The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer", published in 1966, wrote, "Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. Almost anything can cause cancer. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. The prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen (oxidation of sugar) in normal body cells by fermentation of sugar..."

Have you seen how asthmatics frantically gasp for more oxygen during asthma attacks? Indeed, it is normal that these and other COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) patients are the first candidates to breathe pure oxygen 24/7 to save their lives. Reading is a habit that has to be cultivated from a small age. Only if one has the habit of reading can one acquire more knowledge on things like Bronchitis.

These doctors refined the Buteyko oxygenation therapy and revealed numerous factors that improve our health (physical exercise with strictly nasal breathing; good posture; raw diets; cold shower; sleeping on hard surfaces; bare foot walking; prevention of mouth breathing, overeating, and sleeping on one's back, etc.) It would be hopeless trying to get people who are not interested in knowing more about Bronchitis Conditions to read articles pertaining to it. Only people interested in Bronchitis Conditions will enjoy this article.

After your usual exhale, pinch your nose and count your BHT (breath holding time) in seconds. Keep nose pinched until you experience the first desire to breathe. Practice shows that this first desire appears together with an involuntary push of the diaphragm or swallowing movement in the throat. (Your body warns you, "Enough!") If you release the nose and start breathing at this time, you can resume your usual breathing pattern (in the same way as you were breathing prior to the test). Do not extend breath holding too long. This is the most common mistake. You should not gasp for air or open your mouth when you release your nose. The test should be easy and not cause you any stress. The BHT test does not interfere with your usual breathing. A lot of imagination is required in writing. People may think that writing on Diabetes Bronchitis is very easy; on the contrary, knowledge and imagination has to be merged to create an interesting composition.

Typical Results for the Oxygenation Test
The first chapter of my book "Normal breathing: the key to vital health" is available on-line (http://www.normalbreathing.com/big-book-Ch html). It has a table with dozens of western medical references devoted to stress-free breath holding time. Russian oxygenation doctors accumulated even more clinical information. Doctor Buteyko and his medical colleagues found that the following relationships generally hold true: We worked as diligently as an owl in producing this composition on Bronchitis. So only if you do read it, and appreciate its contents will we feel our efforts haven't gone in vain.

This test became the main measuring tool for about 200 medical professionals who taught the Buteyko self-oxygenation therapy to hundreds thousands of Russian patients with asthma, heart disease, bronchitis, and other conditions. The Buteyko method has over 40 year history of clinical use in the USSR and Russia. This article has been written with the intention of showing some illumination to the meaning of Bronchitis. This is so that those who don't know much about Bronchitis can learn more about it. :o.
  • 40 s of oxygen - people with poor health, but often without serious organic problems. 40-60 s - good health.
  • Over 60 s of oxygen - ideal health, when many modern diseases are virtually impossible.

For the first time in the history of medicine, a group of about 200 doctors, after studying and curing thousands of patients, suggested the standard for ideal health (60 s of oxygen) that provide guarantee from such chronic conditions as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, COPD, arthritis, and many others.
