- Past acute bronchitis will not pass: in addition to cough it brings
temperature, malaise, muscle pain, joint pain, head - as you
lucky. The cause of all these "pleasures" - a virus. Antibiotics are not virus
operate, so drink them in acute bronchitis is useless! If the disease
caught, no pill will not help: they can only remove
symptoms - fever, headache. All you need to do - it's not
interfere with the body to fight. So, it is necessary to lie down for a week in bed,
hot drink, gargle and eat large doses askorbinki - 2
g per day. From folk remedies best to help salt inhalation
solutions or mineral water (mineral water, etc.) that promote
active discharge of phlegm. Sitting, wrapped in a blanket over
pan with cooked potato peel useless and do inhalations
with oil solutions even harmful. If the "spit" acute bronchitis,
overcoming yourself, go to work, it is likely that the infection
falls below the treated and still have, only this time from the
Remember, a cough - a symptom that is almost always
It occurs in diseases of the respiratory tract, and to understand,
what caused this time, is not possible. Do not waste your time on the game in
doctor and call your doctor. If the temperature is kept for more than three days,
again, call your doctor: most likely, the disease ceased to be harmless
and require different treatment. This often happens to those who are ill
chronic bronchitis, because infectious exacerbation of the disease
can trigger as viruses and bacteria.
Sinister, a long, discreet
The widespread opinion that the chronic bronchitis - just
finished the cure acute wrongly. In fact, it is an independent
disease caused by pollutants - all harmful and summer, we
breathe: cigarette smoke, exhaust fumes, industrial
waste. If you breathe it day after day, slows the natural
phlegm, breaks down the self-cleaning mechanism of bronchial infection is not
He meets no resistance to them, and they are eventually damaged.
Intrigue of chronic bronchitis in the fact that the disease develops
years and a man about it for a long time does not suspect. Doctors divide these
cyanotic patients puffy pink and puffing. The first cough,
often carry infectious exacerbation and despite lower
the level of oxygen in the blood, in general for a long time feel good.
Pink puffing look like healthy people do not cough, but one
neprekrasny time begin to suffer from terrible shortness of breath. Hard to tell,
who are "lucky" more. Cyanotic puffy Diagnosis
earlier, but rose puffing live 10 years longer.
And antibiotics "
Treat chronic bronchitis are slow and tedious - the success of the entire
It depends on the discipline of the patient to whom the doctors individually
pick up a lot of drugs for various actions (bronchodilators,
expectorant, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulators). Sometimes
resorting to therapeutic bronchoscopy, pumping out from the lungs accumulated
phlegm. But often it is impossible to clean the light endoscope. In chronic
bronchitis is very important to engage in physical therapy (emphasis - on
exercises for the shoulder girdle), breathing exercises, massage
chest, and in the morning and evening exercise universal "woodcutter":
drinking a glass of water, sharply bend, as if prick several times
firewood. Scientifically it is called "postural drainage."
Disturbances occurring in mucosa in chronic bronchitis, to
certain extent reversible. The epithelium of the smoker to part with
bad habit, restored after 10 years. However, men,
Women are more likely to suffer from this disease, they have developed their own
paradoxical approach: to be treated ... and continue to smoke. If you can
reduce the number of infectious exacerbations transferred during the year,
of the drugs your doctor may be canceled. The disease will not go away
(After all, chronic), but some of the symptoms will pass and disabled
People no longer will.
During acute infection it is very important to deliver the sputum
analysis. If it indicates inflammation make determination on seeding
microbial sensitivity to antibiotics. The choice of antibiotic or random
broad-spectrum (that certainly there) may lead to
the fact that people will spend on drink it in vain: and the microbe will not kill, and develop
immunity of the organism to the antibiotic in the future.
In recent years, actively offer innovative therapies
chronic bronchitis - hypoxic and galaterapiyu. In some
cases, they are really effective. However, replace the main
complex treatment, they are not able to.
Hypoxytherapy - is training "mountain air" when the patient
breathing gas mixture with low oxygen content. It is believed that
so the body adapts to the more difficult conditions for him.
For galaterapii walls, floor, ceiling spread a special chamber
salt, the salt is sprayed in the air spray. Inhalation of such air
It promotes discharge of phlegm - and this is exactly what you need.
Chronic bronchitis is dangerous
- Accruing dyspnea at the slightest physical exertion.
- Diffuse pneumosclerosis. Adhesions in the lungs unpleasant creaking, can cause pain and become the basis for the development of tumors.
- Emphysema. Lung tissue is destroyed, the natural gas exchange is broken - and can not do without oxygen apparatus.
- Respiratory failure. It remains only to "sit" on oxygen, conscious of the whole weight of his fortune.
