What causes nasal cavity and what should i do do minimize the chance of having it?
How do i know if i have int?

go to school and study biology, microbiology, anatomy and get ready to be a doctor!! You definitely have the brain for it.

If you want to minimize the chances of getting it, stick your head in a plastic bag and tie it tightly around your neck. Do not remove for about 10 days.  (+ info)

How can I prevent my nasal passages from collapsing at night?

I try to keep them moist with saline nasal gel and solution, which helps prevent colds and I use a humidifier. Neither do the trick; as soon as I have to turn on the heat, that stuffy air adds to my narrow nasal cavity and deviated septum to disturb my sleep. The ENT specialist just looked at me stupid when I asked him about it.

Any suggestions?

My sister has a deviated septum and she puts Vick's under her nose every night before she goes to bed. I don't know if that is the reason why but it makes sense that it would help with something like that.  (+ info)

How to relieve nasal stuffiness associated with pregnancy?

I know they say to take sudafed, but this only seems to semi-work and symptoms come back once medication wears off. Has anyone had really bad nasal stuffiness, where you are constantly blowing your nose or getting drainage down the throat? It is so annoying, and lasts throughout all of my pregnancy (having 3rd child). I need some better relief. Has anyone had medication/antibiotics prescribed for them for this?

Use a humidifier, saline nasal spray, or what has worked for me is a netty pot, its where you pour saline water in one nostril and it comes out the other. It seems to have worked the best for me. I also have a cold right now and used it to clear up my congestion and it has helped as well. I don't really believe in medication during pregnancy so I haven't even inquired about it.  (+ info)

How to use nasal irrigation for prevention of sinus infection?

I live in India and can not buy Neti-pot and all of these that are available in other countries. Can you please recommend a nasal irrigation thing I can create and use at home without going out and buying kits??

Also, please let me know how to use this.
I am pregnant and am having a lot of sinus problems and just finished amoxicillin and don't want to have to use it again. This is why this is important to me.


If you can go buy any nasal spray at the store, then do that , empty the container wash it well, then fill it with saline solution, unless you can already buy a saline solution spray, Saline is buffered salt and water. Regular salt works but it burns a little. But the key is having a container to use.
Then you have a couple of choices, first you could try to use it just as a spray. If that does not give you enough relief then you can use it as a rinse where you spray it into one side of your nose and have the solution discharge out the other side.

How long can a person live with a bowel obstruction?

My mother-in-law is in the hospital and very sick.She's been there for 5weeks now and they just found out that now she has an obstruction on top of everything else thats wrong with her , and she isn't strong enough to have surgery to remove it.How long can she live with it?They say shes had it for about 3 weeks already.

She must not be completely obstructed if she has had it for 3 weeks. The doctors can probably get it moving without surgery. Either way, pray for her and keep up hope.  (+ info)

What nasal decongestants can someone with hypothroidism use?

My girlfriend has hypothroidism and whenever she gets a cold, she suffers from horrible nasal congestion. Since pseudophederine, and similar medications, cannot be taken by someone with thyroid disease, are there any alternative medications or methods available that can provide her with relief?

She has visited a physician in the past due to extremely acute nasal pressure/pain from a cold and was simply prescribed a tylenol/codeine blend, which only masked the pain and does nothing for the pressure. Please help!

The newer corticosteroid sprays like Nasonex, Flonase, Beconase etc will be suitable for her. Although these types of sprays will offer relief for her, They are used in a different way. She will take one to two sprays in each nostril daily needed or not. These sprays will take 1 to 2 weeks to have the maximum effect.  (+ info)

What condition results from an obstruction that totally blocks the flow of blood in a coronary artery?

What condition results from an obstruction that totally blocks the flow of blood in a coronary artery?

A. Headache
B. Heart attack
C. Stroke
D. Blindness

Answer is B. Heart attack (Myocardial infarction).
Acute coronary syndromes result from acute obstruction of a coronary artery. Consequences depend on degree and location of obstruction and range from unstable angina to non-ST-segment elevation MI (NSTEMI), ST-segment elevation MI (STEMI), and sudden cardiac death. Symptoms are similar in each of these syndromes (except sudden death) and include chest discomfort with or without dyspnea, nausea, and diaphoresis. Diagnosis is by ECG and the presence or absence of serologic markers. Treatment is antiplatelet drugs, anticoagulants, nitrates, β-blockers, and, for STEMI, emergency reperfusion via fibrinolytic drugs, percutaneous intervention, or, occasionally, coronary artery bypass graft surgery.  (+ info)

What is the difference between prescription nasal allergy sprays?

I've seen various prescription nasal allergy sprays over the years, such as Flonase, Aquacort, Nasonex, Nasocort, etc. My young daughter was prescribed Nasonex. I had Nasocort at home and asked the doctor if she could use that instead, but he said no, definitely only use Nasonex (which she is). Do all the sprays do the same thing? What's the difference in the relief they give? Thanks!

I don't know.. but there is a difference.
I got prescribed Nasonex by the doctor and it didn't do anything for me.
So my parents work with pharmaceuticals and they get all kinds of stuff from them so I've basically tried every nasal spray there is!
I'd say Flonase and NasacortAQ did the trick for me.
I'm currently using NasacortAQ.
So I guess they just work differently on everyone.  (+ info)
