Pulmonology / / April 22, 2016
Asthma in itself refers to allergic diseases.Allergies - is modified and often improved the body's sensitivity to a particular substance (pollen, animal hair, dust, food, tobacco, cosmetic creams and, unfortunately, much, much more).Never attempt to remove the allergic reaction, since medicines are capable to provoke her.If
attacks "come" at night, give up the feather pillows, duvets or blankets, clean carpets.Room Vacuum daily and wipe with a damp cloth.
Asthma can also occur as a result of a genetic predisposition, and from which developed over the years, increased reactivity.All this dictates a different treatment strategy.One patient needed drugs, eliminating inflammation, others - drugs, "pacify" the allergy, the third - medicines that relieve bronchospasm.
During an asthma attack disrupted breathing.And there is the fact that narrows the lumen of the bronchi due to compression of the smooth musculature and mucus plugging viscous (it starts to produce in excess edematous and swollen mucosa).The
asthma patients are very useful walking outdoors. But, walking, do not forget about the special gymnastics: breath 1 step and breath - to 2. After 7-10 days, a breath do 2 steps, and exhale - at 4. After another 7-10 days breath - up to 3 stops, exhale - at 4. If you can, bring the breath up to 4 steps, and exhale - to 8. Those who easily tolerate such a rhythm, you can try to inhale for 5, and exhale on the 10 steps.
When deciding about the rest, remember: all suffering from respiratory diseases harmful climate change.You can take a chance to move to distant lands, if the trip is designed for 2-3 months (and then under the condition that asthma is not severe).
