I.INTRODUCTION Asthma is a chronic disease of the lungs which affects the pathways where the air travels through the lungs. Asthmatic refers to the people who suffer from this condition whether it may be recurrent or long-lasting. Asthma causes recurring periods of wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath and coughing. The coughing occurs at night and early in the morning. Asthma came from the Greek verb "aazein" which means "panting and exhaling with the open mouth."
Agarwal: I believe I have read that somewhere before also. I would define Asthmas as a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways that reveals itself as recurring occurrences of wheezing, trouble breathing, chest tightness and coughing. I would characterize it by bronchial hyper-responsiveness and variable airflow obstruction, that is often reversible either spontaneously or with treatment. Galloway: Asthma is very serious. It a long-term incurable condition that has an effect on millions of people of all ages.
Inside the chest cavity is a pair of lungs that is surrounded with membranes (pleura). Between the pleura and the lung tissue is a potential space that is lubricated with a thin layer of fluid. This keeps the pleura and the lung tissue sliding against each other and allows for lung expansion. Sometimes, conditions such as infection (pneumonia), traumatic bleeding or cancer can fill this space with inflammatory fluid, which can solidify and make the pleura adhere to the lungs. It forms a capsule that can entrap the lungs and make breathing difficult.
Ventilation/perfusion scans: Ventilation/perfusion scans, sometimes called a VQ (V=Ventilation, Q=perfusion) scan, is a way of identifying mismatched areas of blood and air supply to the lungs. It is primarily used to detect a pulmonary embolus. The perfusion part of the study uses a radioisotope tagged to the blood which shows where in the lungs the blood is perfusing. If the scan shows up any area missing a supply on the scans this means there is a blockage which is not allowing the blood to perfuse that part of the organ. Myocardial perfusion imaging: Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) is a form of functional cardiac imaging, used for the diagnosis of ischemic heart disease.
E-cadherin has the major effect in the breast cancer cell. In the normal cells of the breast we can find high amount of the E-cadherin but in the cancer cells of the breast it is very low. Biologists are knowing E-cadherin as an invasion suppressor genes. These means, E-cadherin has a major role in restraining the attack of cancer cells. In the other words, E-cadherin can stop cancer cells to produce and becoming more and more.
That is not an issue for a great many people, however for those with asthma or a lung illness, for example, emphysema, getting the oxygen you have to inhale less demanding can be troublesome. Furthermore a few studies demonstrate that an intense anxiety —, for example, the passing of a friend or family member — can really trigger asthma assaults, in which the aviation route between the nose and the lungs chokes. Also, stretch can result in the quick breathing — or hyperventilation — that can bring on a frenzy assault in somebody inclined to frenzy assaults. Working with a therapist to create unwinding and breathing methods can offer assist.
Controlling Bleeding If someone is bleeding; apply pressure to the wound, ideally with sterile cloth, but a towel or T-shirt will work just fine if you can’t find anything else. Make sure that you elevate the wound above the heart. Mild bleeding usually stops on its own, but If the bleeding has not slowed down or stopped, continue pressuring the wound while getting help.. 6. Heart Attacks and Strokes To relief a regular pain, Aspirin is prescribed by the doctors to help treat mini heart attacks and strokes. Aspirin properties includes anti inflammatory and a blood thinner that helps blood get through large clots that leads to stroke and heart attacks.
Although the tendency is inherited, the specific allergy need not be—a parent may have asthma, but the child may have hay fever. It is also generally agreed that emotional stress, such as tension, overwork, fatigue, fright, and extreme anger, can prompt allergies. But whether psychosomatic factors alone can actually cause an allergy to develop
Another drawback is harm for respiratory health problem . As people inhale the cold air, the throat may be allergic and cause the asthma or other respiratory illnesses. Another disadvantage is it can only install in the buildings. It only works in the indoor so when people go the outdoor, air-conditioner become
INTRODUCTION Asthma is a condition and chronic inflammatory disorder of airways that directs to airway obstruction. It is distinguished by airway hypersensitivity to diverse types of stimuli, result to a sudden yet transient constriction of the muscles in the walls of the bronchioles and airways, leading patients to experience wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath and cough. Asthmatic attacks can be triggered by extrinsic factors such as allergens, smoke, pollution, mold spores and food, or intrinsic factors such as airway infections, emotional stress, exercise, acid reflux and fatigue. Asthma is one of the common diseases in the Philippines caused by the country’s poor environment. Asthmatic attacks can often be controlled by
