Chronic Bronchitis Symptoms Blood - COPD - Definition, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment
What does COPD mean? COPD stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. It encompasses two types of disease processes namely chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Quite often, people who suffer from COPD show a combination of features of both disease processes. In lay person's term, COPD means persistent lung disease with features of airway narrowing. To be more specific, bronchitis means inflammation of the bronchi or the larger airways of the lungs whereas emphysema means destruction to the smaller airways and alveoli or airsacs of the lungs. Thus COPD is commonly used to describe chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both.

Quote:COPD sounds like asthma, are they any different? Yes. Both COPD and asthma cause similar symptoms, however, they are different in certain ways. COPD causes permanent damage to the airways. The obstruction is 'fixed', hence it is irreversible in general terms. However, airway narrowing in asthma is intermittent and reverses quite easily with medication. Having said that, both COPD and asthma is common, people who suffer COPD can have an asthmatic component and vice versa.

COPD a Common Condition?
It is one of the commonest conditions that require hospital admission during period of flare-ups. According to one epidemiology study in the US, approximately eight million people have chronic bronchitis whereas 2 million people have emphysema. As we can see, chronic bronchitis is more common than emphysema.

What are the symptoms of COPD? The two main symptoms are cough and breathlessness. COPD sufferers commonly complain about breathlessness and cough that develop gradually over a long period of time. The cough that COPD sufferer gets are usually productive which means they commonly cough up phlegm. The cough usually comes and goes initially but tends to become persistent as time passes. Breathlessness is usually intermittent and only occurs with exertion in the beginning, however if you continue to smoke, the breathlessness persists even when you are at rest, this can be quite distressing! Other symptoms are chronic sputum production, where you constantly cough up phlegm all day and recurrent chest infection. People with COPD are more prone to chest infection for obvious reasons, as the lining in the lung looses its normal defense mechanism against intruding bugs.

How Does Smoking Cause COPD?
Smoking inadvertently damages the lining of the airways. As with any other part of the body in response to injury, inflammation occurs. Inflammation stimulates the damaged lining to secrete mucus in an abnormal amount and also causes the airway to constrict (narrow). The results of one reading this composition is a good understanding on the topic of Bronchitis. So do go ahead and read this to learn more about Bronchitis.

What are the Causes of COPD?
Smoking. Smoking is the number 1 cause of COPD. More than 90 percent of COPDs are caused by smoking, cigarette or otherwise. About 30 percent of long term smokers will eventually show symptoms of COPD of varying degrees. Other causes include air pollution and inherited enzyme deficiency namely alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency.

What are the treatments of COPD? First of all. Stop smoking. This cannot be stressed enough. Smoking cessation is the first thing you have to do if you want to get better. As the underlying mechanism of COPD is irreversible, medications are used with an aim to slow down it's progress. Drugs that are commonly used to treat COPD include short-acting bronchodilator inhalers (i.e. salbutamol), long-acting bronchodilator inhalers (i.e. tiotropium), steroid inhalers and tablets are all available drugs for treatment of COPD. Again, no treatment is more important that stop smoking. Lung transplant is the last option and should be reserved for people with severe COPD. Writing an article on Chronic Bronchitis Emphysema was our foremost priority while thinking of a topic to write on. This is because Chronic Bronchitis Emphysema are interesting parts of our lives, and are needed by us.

About Tamiflu
It's Manufacturer Tamiflu (Oseltamivir) is an oral antiviral treatment (not a vaccine) for influenza, and belongs to a class of drugs called neuraminidase inhibitors (NAI). It prevents the virus from spreading inside the body and works well against all strains.

Type B influenza virus is the strain responsible for smaller infection outbreaks. Once infected with this virus, the immune system successfully resists this type of virus for many years. This type commonly infects uninfected children aged between 5-14 years. We have also translated parts of this composition into French and Spanish to facilitate easier understanding of Bronchitis Pneumonia. In this way, more people will get to understand the composition.

Comes in the Strength of
Tamiflu can be used both for prevention and treatment of influenza. An oral medication, it is a convenient 75mg capsule which affects all key sites in the body where the virus multiplies. The dose for the adult treatment of influenza is a 75mg capsule, taken twice daily for five days. A pack of Tamiflu contains a full treatment course of 10 capsules. Dwelving into the interiors of Bronchitis has led us to all this information here on Bronchitis. Bronchitis do indeed have a lot to tell!Dwelving into the interiors of Bronchitis has led us to all this information here on Bronchitis. Bronchitis do indeed have a lot to tell! Smile

Minimal Exertion
It is better to stay in bed and recuperate through relaxation.. Keeping the fever in check - Young children often suffer higher fever during the flu. It was with keen interest that we got about to writing on Complications Bronchitis. Hope you read and appreciate it with equal interest.

Treatment must commence within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms for full efficacy. For post exposure prophylaxis the dosage is one 75mg capsule daily for up to 6 weeks. Aiming high is our motto when writing about any topic. In this way, we tend to add whatever matter there is about Bronchitis, rather than drop any topic.

The influenza virus is classified into three categories: A, B, and C. Type A is the most serious and usually appears every two or three years. Prone to mutation, it regularly produces nonresistant strains; has caused many epidemics; and is also responsible for pandemics, in which entire continents are affected.
  • Type C influenza virus is a very mild strain of the infection, similar to symptoms of a common cold.
  • This can be treated with bed rest and plenty of fluid intake.
  • We are satisfied with this end product on Bronchitis Pneumonia.
  • It was really worth the hard work and effort in writing so much on Bronchitis Pneumonia.

Proper Sleep
Adequate rest also helps in recovery. Taking a healthy diet - Even though you don't feel like eating, nutrition is an important part of recovery. Enhancing your vocabulary is our intention with the writing of this article on Bronchitis Pneumonia. We have used new and interesting words to achieve this.

How to Treat Influenza Virus
The flu targets your respiratory system (nose, lungs, throat and bronchial tubes). During the flu, a patient exhibits some or all of the following symptoms. We have not included any imaginary or false information on Bronchitis here. Everything here is true and up to the mark!

Side Effects of Tamiflu
Possible Tamiflu side effects, although not common, include: Nausea Vomiting Diarrhea Bronchitis Stomach pain It was with great relief we ended writing on Complications Bronchitis. There was just too much information to write, that we were starting to lose hopes on it's completion!

Loss of Appetite
Fever Congestion that turns to a runny nose Sore throat Cough that turns productive Exhaustion and weakness Using our imagination has helped us create a wonderful article on Complications Bronchitis. Being imaginative is indeed very important when writing about Complications Bronchitis!

Roche, the manufacturer of Tamiflu since 1996, acquired the worldwide rights to develop and market the drug from Gilead Sciences, Foster City, California.

Muscle Aches and Pains
It is possible to treat the flu using medication as well as make a rapid recovery using various means like: Keeping your fluid intake to the optimum - Flu sufferers lose a lot of fluids from having high fevers. Drink plenty of water. Orange juice is good for its vitamin C content, too, and sports drinks like Gatorade help replenish electrolytes. Even the beginner will get to learn more about Bronchitis after reading this article. It is written in easy language so that everyone will be able to understand it.

Toddlers should be attended to by a pediatrician in the event of a high fever that lasts for a day and for adults a doctor should be consulted when the fever exceeds 103 degrees or lasts longer than two days and is accompanied by significant fatigue or any kind of pain. The elderly and those with diabetes, a weakened immune system, cardiovascular disease, pregnancy beyond the first trimester, lung disease or asthma should call their doctor when flu symptoms arrive.

Tamiflu is proven to be effective in adults and in children one year and older. What is an Influenza Virus? Influenza is a disease caused by a member of the Orthomyxoviridae. Many features are common with those of the Paramyxovirus infections of the respiratory tract. Influenza, commonly called - the 'flu'- is a serious disease caused by influenza A and B viruses, which usually occurs seasonally in the autumn and winter months. According to the WHO 3-5 million cases of seasonal influenza occur every year. Suppressing our knowledge on Complications Bronchitis is not our intention here. In fact, we mean to let everyone know more about Complications Bronchitis after reading this!

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?

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. So after reading what we have mentioned here on Bronchitis, it is up to you to provide your verdict as to what exactly it is that you find fascinating here.

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." Writing on Bronchitis Conditions proved to be a gamble to us. This is because there simply seemed to be nothing to write about in the beginning of writing. It was only in the process of writing did we get more and more to write on Bronchitis Conditions.

High level of blood lactate (a sign of anaerobic metabolism) is among main features for diabetes, chronic fatigue, bronchitis and many other conditions. Wink

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

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. Looking for something logical on Bronchitis, we stumbled on the information provided here. Look out for anything illogical here.

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.) There are many varieties of Diabetes Bronchitis found today. However, we have stuck to the description of only one variety to prevent confusion!
  • 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.

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. It is only if you find some usage for the matter described here on Bronchitis that we will feel the efforts put in writing on Bronchitis fruitful. So make good usage of it!

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.

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. There is a vast ocean of knowledge connected with Bronchitis Conditions. What is included here can be considered a fraction of this knowledge!

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..." Bronchitis are versatile as they are found in all parts and walks of life. It all depends on the way you take it.
