Effect Of Inhalation Therapy On The Respiratory Tract?
Good afternoon, I want to ask about the use of drugs. My mother has asthma, recently relapses, has been hospitalized and was given a berotec inhaler medication. Meanwhile, you are being treated using salbutamol, is it okay if you can take 2 to 2 tablets of 2 mg of salbutamol a day? So is it true that too much steam will cause the airways to become stiff? Thank you .. I hope the doctor will always be given health .. Amami
Hi Rizkika, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Asthma is a condition in which there is swelling and narrowing of the small airways in the lungs accompanied by excessive mucus production. Asthma is a disease that cannot be cured, but can be controlled by avoiding asthma triggers and using drugs.
The severity of asthma during an asthma attack can vary, as can the response to treatment given. For example, during a severe attack, treatment with berotec (fenoterol) alone may not be sufficient. Treatment with ipratropium or intravenous corticosteroids may be required. If the next attack is mild, then maybe giving fenoterol alone is enough to relieve symptoms.
Treatment for prevention of asthma attacks depends on how often the attacks occur. Salbutamol is a short acting beta agonist drug (SABA-short acting beta agonist), so it is not actually used to prevent long-term asthma attacks.
We recommend that to control your mother's asthma, consult your mother's condition with the Lung Doctor. Therapy for asthma can really be different for each patient, depending on the frequency of attacks, the presence of certain triggers, the patient's own health condition, whether there are contraindications to medication, and so on.
Giving inhalation therapy will not stiffen the airways, but uncontrolled asthma can cause permanent airway constriction and damage. This airway damage will make the airway stiff and unable to expand and collapse completely.
Some of the things your mother can do include:
identify and avoid control asthma triggers to the doctor regularly take asthma medication according to the doctor's instructions, use the inhaler correctly according to the doctor's instructions, vaccinate according to the doctor's recommendation regularly
