Adenoides defense against germs
this statement you do not believe me?Well and in vain.Adenoids and scientifically - nasopharyngeal tonsils, are made of a special nature of the lymphoid tissue to protect the child's body from infections.When a child becomes ill with influenza or acute respiratory disease, infections adenoids are taking a hit on - they swell, expand and help the body cope with the harmful microorganisms.If a child has a cold often in the folds and coils adenoids accumulated over many pathogens, and adenoids are no longer cope with them.Harmful microorganisms, in turn, are beginning to hit the weakened adenoids, and they have themselves become a hotbed of chronic inflammation.Expanding, diseased adenoids can not return to their original size.They need to be treated urgently.To learn how to do it, we'll talk later ...
adenoids grow most often in children aged 3 to 5 years.The earliest manifestation of this - shortness of nasal breathing.At first, it seems that the child is practically
But remember your feelings when cold.The worst even that runs from the nose, and the inability to breathe.And this headache all annoying, tiring, performance falls.But such a state at a cold lasts a few days, and the child with a swollen adenoids similar sensations experienced months or even years!All the while his brain and all the organs are not fed enough oxygen.He is constantly a headache, he feels weak, gets tired easily, even from not a big exercise.At the same time he is required to kindergarten he roughly behaved in class, I mastered the program, and if it is already a schoolboy - that was a good student, was assiduous in class, doing exercise, helping you around the house, etc. In other words, you..you want your child led normal for his age, lifestyle, and it seems you do not want.You are his "work through" rebuke, even punished.But believe me, he can not meet your requirements!
Absence of nasal breathing affects the central nervous system, causing venous congestion.The child is getting worse and worse learning, becomes nervous, moody, irritated.Starts rude adults.When adenoids 2-3-th degree, he is constantly breathing mouth, often sick and SARS otitis, snoring during sleep.In 15% of children suffering adenoiditis (inflammation of the adenoids), develops bedwetting.Many are seizures, laryngospasm occur and asthma, disrupted the activities of the cardiovascular system, deteriorating eyesight and hearing.
And when inveterate adenoiditis child lags behind in physical development, it may be deformed thorax - a so-called "chicken" breasts, disturbed the normal growth of facial bones.Over time, it becomes the "adenoid" or "horsey".Imagine excessively elongated narrow skull with a huge wedge-shaped jaw and protruding, randomly growing teeth.This type of person is called a syndrome doctors Fernandel.Remember the famous French actor?Agree, when his appearance you need to have a truly great talent to become not only famous, but also a favorite of the public.Such a talent, unfortunately, rare.Ordinary people Fernandel resemblance to happiness, it seems, will not bring.
What to do with the appearance of the adenoids?
adenoids should be treated without bringing the disease to the limit at which formed "chicken" breast and "horse" face.There it is on the 3rd and 4th stages of the disease.So, no need to run the disease.A cure her conservative manner, ie medicines and herbs can be.But only at the small sizes of adenoids, that is, on the 1st and 2nd stages of the disease.In these cases, topically applied colloid silver solution, prescribe anti-inflammatory and vasoconstrictor drops, immunostimulants, vitamins, breathing exercises.Spend tempering procedures.
From folk remedies well to instillation into the nose 2-3 times a day for 3 drops of red beet juice.The pharmacy selling oil arborvitae - it instilled 2-3 drops 3 times a day.It is useful to wash the nose with seawater or its substitute, which is easy to prepare themselves: in 1 cup of warm water dissolve 1 teaspoon of table salt and add 5-7 drops of iodine pharmaceutical..Wash the baby's nose 2-3 times a day.
Another recipe is available - from horsetail: 2 tbsp.chopped herb horsetail pour 200 g of hot water, put on 15 minutes in a boiling water bath, then remove from heat, let
broth cool slightly, strain, wring out the remaining raw materials and add to the broth of boiled water to the original volume.Drink decoction of horsetail should be 50-100 g 3 times a day.
If conservative treatment does not help and the disease continues to progress, it is necessary to resort to adenotomy, ie the surgical removal of the adenoids.
Do Is surgery to remove the adenoids in children?
This question bothers nearly all parents whose children suffer from adenoids.I do not agree in their opinion on this matter and pediatricians, otolaryngologists.The fact that nasopharyngeal tonsils in children 12 to 14 years shrivel, become smaller, and by the age of 16 and does take place.Therefore, doctors as possible in no hurry to remove overgrown tonsils.All the more so in young children after the surgery, they have the ability to quickly return.
And yet, when the adenoids grow so that overlap the nasopharynx, it is best to leave them.Operation in this case - the only effective treatment.
What is expecting a baby in the operating room?
Believe me, nothing wrong!And see the baby.Time for that you have.The child need to prepare for the operation over three weeks.During this period, all tests must be submitted.Sometimes for a day or two before the operation the child for some reason the temperature jumps or appears a little runny.To operate it, even at the slightest sign of a cold is not allowed.But parents often hide the true condition of the child, not to re-tests.As a result, the operation may fail to pass, with complications.Therefore, the hospital put the child on the eve of surgery, the doctor could see his condition.
The operation is usually carried out two - a surgeon and a nurse.The patient is seated in a special chair, fixed his arms and legs.General anesthesia is not doing as need constant contact with the child.He must hear and do whatever he is told.Therefore, the child first buried anesthetic, and then make a shot.Introduced the drug acts on the cerebral cortex, so that the child will be quiet during operation, will answer questions, but then did not remember anything that happened to him during the operation.
And there it quickly and painlessly.Nurse gets behind the chair, both hands holds the baby's head, the doctor opens his mouth ... and the patient barely manages oyknut the doctor already gets deleted tonsils and puts them in a special vial to be sent to histology.This does not mean that a child is suspected cancer.Just now so accepted all that is cut from the body, it is sent for histological examination.
After surgery: the first days
Immediately after the operation the little patient make a good prosmorkatsya to the blood stopped flowing.Blood is a little bit because there are pre-entered hemostatic drugs.After that, they brought the child to the ward.And on the second day are discharged home.At 5-7 days recommend home treatment: the child these days is prohibited to walk, run and jump.Most importantly - do not let him pick up any infection.Food and drink should be slightly warm, but in any case not hot - it can cause bleeding.In the first days after the operation the child can not bathe, wash his head.It is unacceptable to sunbathe.Do not forget to give medications that before discharge from the hospital prescribed by a doctor.
