Bronchial asthma and its symptoms
Bronchial asthma is a chronic disease that can be diagnosed in both children and adults. This disease is accompanied by periodic attacks of suffocation, coughing, shortness of breath, the appearance of whistling sounds when breathing. Healthy bronchi provide free passage of air through the respiratory tract, and with inflammation, the walls of the bronchi swell, muscles contract and bronchospasm develops, which leads to the accumulation of mucus and prevents the free movement of air, which causes shortness of breath, wheezing and a feeling of suffocation. Frequent seizures affect the patient's quality of life.
Bronchial asthma can be of a different nature:
- allergic - attacks of the disease are associated with exposure to any allergen, in this case asthma may be accompanied by other allergic reactions - conjunctivitis, rhinitis , rashes on the skin;
- endogenous - the development of an attack occurs due to physical or psycho-emotional stress, exposure to infections or cold.
Sometimes there is a mixed form of the disease.
Diagnostics of bronchial asthma
The disease can occur in various forms, passing (intermittent) with rare exacerbations and constant (persistent), which can have a mild, moderate and severe course. To diagnose and select a treatment regimen for bronchial asthma, examinations, tests are carried out, including:
- examination by a pulmonologist who examines the patient's medical history and complaints;
- blood, urine and feces;
- tests for the detection of antibodies to allergens;
- computed tomography;
- chest x-rays to detect concomitant diseases;
- spirometry and peak flowmetry, which allow us to assess the degree of impaired air passage through the respiratory tract.
The cost of diagnostic procedures depends on their number and the medical institution where the examination is carried out.
Complete recovery from bronchial asthma is almost impossible, the goal of treating this chronic disease is to reduce the frequency of attacks and other manifestations of the disease, to improve the patient's quality of life. For therapy, drugs are used; maintaining a healthy lifestyle is of great importance for treatment - no contact with allergens, rejection of bad habits, prevention of infectious diseases, moderate physical activity, proper nutrition.
Medicines for the treatment of bronchial asthma are divided into two groups:
- supportive - control the course of the disease, such medications are usually taken for a long time;
- urgent - relieving an attack.
Medicines can be injected into the body by injection, orally or by inhalation.The latter makes it possible to deliver the drug directly to the respiratory tract, due to which the concentration of the drug in them increases and at the same time the number of undesirable side effects is reduced. Used in treatment are also mucolytic agents that remove phlegm from the body, and in especially severe cases - hormonal drugs. Modern pharmacists offer a wide range of drugs for the treatment of bronchial asthma, differing in price, effectiveness, and specific effects on the body. An experienced pulmonologist can choose the right drugs, taking into account the form of the disease and the severity of the patient's condition.
