Medicine For Wheezing?
what is the position of the person affected by the wheezing?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Wheezing (wheezing) a high-pitched whistling sound that occurs when breathing in. This additional breath sound usually appears with shortness of breath. Wheezing can occur when you inhale (inspiration) or exhale (expiration).
The causes of wheezing are many. However, in general, all of these causes are related to inflammation and narrowing of the airway, from the throat to the lungs.
Some of the most common possible causes of wheezing include:
Asthma bronchiale (chronic inflammation of the respiratory tract that triggers shortness of breath) COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) Allergy to anaphylactic reactions Bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchi) Bronchhiolitis (inflammation of the bronchioles) Emphysema (damage to the lung parenchyma which causes its elasticity to drop dramatically) Epiglottitis (inflammation of the epiglottis) Pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma) Infections of the airways (especially in children) Smoking Lung cancer (malignant lung tumor) GERD (reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus) Heart failure Side effects of drugs, for example aspirin, etc. We do not understand what you mean of your question about "what is the position of the affected person". However, if what you are asking is how to treat wheezing, the answer depends on what disease causes the pain to appear. Therefore, you need to see a doctor immediately. Checks should be done as soon as possible if the wheezing feels so bad that it makes it difficult for you to breathe, is breathing fast and shallow, or you have signs of hypoxia (bluish skin, weakness, dizziness). If necessary, in addition to interviews and physical examinations, your doctor may also recommend that you undergo laboratory tests, X-rays, and so on. Handling can later be done by administering drugs (usually by steam, oral medicine, or injection) or others.
In the meantime, try to be more observant in observing what is common that triggers your wheezing. After successfully identified, as much as possible avoid these triggers. If later you experience wheezing and shortness of breath, don't panic, calm yourself down, sit in an upright position (don't look down), and control your breath properly, i.e. inhale 2 seconds through your nose, then exhale 3 seconds through your mouth. Reduce the frequency of your wheezing recurrence by staying away from cigarettes, exercising regularly, staying away from stress, and taking regular breaks.
Hope this helps ..
