How do bronchial tubes get inflammed?

My 6 year old sister wakes up unable to breathe. The doctor tells us to put her in a hot steamy shower for 15 minutes then let her outside to breathe in cool air. (No one in the house smokes)

What causes this and how does this help?

Many factors can cause bronchials to constrict. This prevents air from entering the lungs and makes it difficult for a person to breathe. She may suffer from asthma which may be congenital. Congenital conditions can cause bronchials to become oversensitive and constrict making it difficult to breathe.  (+ info)

How long does it take for Symbicort to reduce the swelling in my Bronchial tubes?

The RT didnt answer the question.... This medicine does reduce swelling (inflammation). It is a corticosteroid and a long acting b2 agonist. Budesonide and formosterol I think.

While a long acting B2 agonists are for maintance and NOT rescue. You might find that the formoterol will open you up pretty quick.... The steroids since they are inhaled will work rather quickly, I'm not sure on exact time and that might differ between people and how bad their asthma is but I would say within a day the swelling reduces, and you will open up with the b2 agonist rather quickly, probably 20 minutes, but not as quickly as a rescue.  (+ info)

has anyone here used a mineral lamp for their bronchial asthma and has it helped you?

I am considering buying one but as they are expensive I thoughT I would try and find out how effective they can be with long term use.

I went under one when I had chinese therapy for a chest infection whilst it was effective (even though just the one off treatment) I'm still have my reservations.

Thank you
I would appreciate any comments please.
Carolyn do you have to be so rude young lady?

Not only is this definitely useless, it may well risk making your asthma worse. The fumes may act as a trigger. Even steam inhalation has been shown to make things worse!Please do not consider this. If you are having problems with symptom control see your GP. If things are still not going well ask for a referral to a respiratory physician.  (+ info)

What do the lungs,bronchial tubes,nose,mouth,tranchea,and diaphragram do for the respiratory system?

What are their jobs individually?And I don't want to know smaller parts of there parts.

dang,i should know this were doing this in school.ill just get from site
Each day we breathe about 20,000 times. All of this breathing couldn't happen without help from the respiratory system, which includes the nose, throat, voice box, windpipe, and lungs. With each breath, you take in air through your nostrils and mouth, and your lungs fill up and empty out. As air is inhaled, the mucous membranes of the nose and mouth warm and humidify the air.

Although we can't see it, the air we breathe is made up of several gases. Oxygen is the most important for keeping us alive because body cells need it for energy and growth. Without oxygen, the body's cells would die.

Carbon dioxide is the waste gas that is produced when carbon is combined with oxygen as part of the body's energy-making processes. The lungs and respiratory system allow oxygen in the air to be taken into the body, while also enabling the body to get rid of carbon dioxide in the air breathed out.

Respiration is the term for the exchange of oxygen from the environment for carbon dioxide from the body's cells. The process of taking air into the lungs is called inhalation or inspiration, and the process of breathing it out is called exhalation or expiration.

Even if the air you breathe is dirty or polluted, your respiratory system filters out foreign matter and organisms that enter through the nose and mouth. Pollutants are breathed or coughed out, destroyed by digestive juices, or eaten by macrophages, a type of blood cell that patrols the body looking for germs to destroy.

Tiny hairs called cilia (pronounced: sih-lee-uh) protect the nasal passageways and other parts of the respiratory tract, filtering out dust and other particles that enter the nose with the breathed air. As air is inhaled, the cilia move back and forth, pushing any foreign matter (like dust) either toward the nostrils, where it is blown out, or toward the pharynx, where it travels through the digestive system and out with the rest of the body's waste.

The two openings of the airway (the nasal cavity and the mouth) meet at the pharynx (pronounced: far-inks), or throat, at the back of the nose and mouth. The pharynx is part of the digestive system as well as the respiratory system because it carries both food and air. At the bottom of the pharynx, the pathway for both food and air divides in two. One passageway is for food (the esophagus, pronounced: ih-sah-fuh-gus, which leads to the stomach) and the other for air. The epiglottis (pronounced: eh-pih-glah-tus), a small flap of tissue, covers the air-only passage when we swallow, keeping food and liquid from going into our lungs.

The larynx (pronounced: lar-inks), or voice box, is the uppermost part of the air-only passage. This short tube contains a pair of vocal cords, which vibrate to make sounds. The trachea (pronounced: tray-kee-uh), or windpipe, extends downward from the base of the larynx. It lies partly in the neck and partly in the chest cavity. The walls of the trachea are strengthened by stiff rings of cartilage to keep it open so air can flow through on its way to the lungs. The trachea is also lined with cilia, which sweep fluids and foreign particles out of the airway so that they stay out of the lungs.

At its bottom end, the trachea divides into left and right air tubes called bronchi (pronounced: brahn-ky), which connect to the lungs. Within the lungs, the bronchi branch into smaller bronchi and even smaller tubes called bronchioles (pronounced: brahn-kee-olz). Bronchioles, which are as thin as a strand of hair, end in tiny air sacs called alveoli (pronounced: al-vee-oh-lie). Each of us has hundreds of millions of alveoli in our lungs — enough to cover a tennis court if they were spread out on the ground. The alveoli are where the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide takes place.

With each inhalation, air fills a large portion of the millions of alveoli. In a process called diffusion (pronounced: dih-fyoo-zhun), oxygen moves from the alveoli to the blood through the capillaries (tiny blood vessels, pronounced: kah-puh-ler-eez) that line the alveolar walls. Once in the bloodstream, oxygen gets picked up by a molecule called hemoglobin (pronounced: hee-muh-glo-bun) in the red blood cells. This oxygen-rich blood then flows back to the heart, which pumps it through the arteries to oxygen-hungry tissues throughout the body.

In the tiny capillaries of the body tissues, oxygen is freed from the hemoglobin and moves into the cells. Carbon dioxide, which is produced during the process of diffusion, moves out of these cells into the capillaries, where most of it is dissolved in the plasma of the blood. Blood rich in carbon dioxide then returns to the heart via the veins. From the heart, this blood is pumped to the lungs, where carbon dioxide passes into the alveoli to be exhaled.

The lungs also contain elastic tissues that allow them to inflate and deflate without losing shape and are encased by  (+ info)

How is breathing improved if the smooth muscle of teh bronchial tree relaxeS?

When the smooth muscle of the bronchial tree relaxes the bronchi open or dilate. When the space that the air flows through the movement is less turbulent and therefore more air can flow through. If more air flows into and out of the lungs and the airways (bronchial tree is not constricted) you can exercise easier, your heart works with less stress, your muscles have more oxygen to burn. Basically your entire body just works better and with more efficiency.  (+ info)

Why are bronchial arteries enlarged and tortuous in chronic pulmonary thromboembolic hypertension?

As title. Thank you.

apple guava,
Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension signs are enlargement of main pulmonary arteries, atherosclerotic calcification, tortuous vessels – (due to vascular obstruction. This may be seen more clearly with varicose veins of the leg) - right ventricular enlargement, hypertrophy, and signs of systemic collateral supply - enlargement of bronchial and nonbronchial systemic arteries.

Can you give me a nursing journal site with bronchial asthma as the issue?

Please help me. i can't find any in the internet. im so desperate!

. Did you try to Google those words: "nursing journal"?
1 example: "ABSTRACT: PURPOSE: To determine the impact of asthma during pregnancy from the perspective of the pregnant woman." , or 2. "HEALTH & SAFETY: Health Care Workers and Asthma: ‘Occupational asthma’ is a risk for nurses." etc for 10 pages!
....... "AJN is the oldest and largest circulating nursing journal in the world. The Journal's mission is to promote excellence in nursing and health care through the dissemination of evidence-based, peer-reviewed clinical information and original research..etc. " .  (+ info)

What causes recurrent bronchial infections?

I moved two months ago from a "sick building" that had various toxic molds in it. Since then, I have two severe bouts of bronchitis...fever, green sputum, and severe cough. I don't smoke, nor have I ever smoked. What could be causing this? I'm wondering if being from the sick building has depressed my immune system? My blood work is fine...aside from being slightly anemic.

If the mold was not remediated then there is a chance that you brought the mold with you to your new home. To give you some background, molds sporulate when the get to an environmentally and genetically pre-determined size. When the mold sporulates it is releasing spores from the colony to travel and form their own colonies. Each spore has all the genetic material to create a colony. Some colonies can get to the size of 1 million spores. So you might want to see a health professional and let them know that you have been exposed to toxic mold. The other thing is that some molds can grow inside human, in the sinuses or lungs etc. Candida for example is actually a fungal infection.

Another thing to thing about is that if the mold was brought to your new home through your cloths then it is entirely possible that your new home is now infected with the same toxic mold that you moved away from. You may want to see if you can find any leaks, or wet or damp areas in your new home. If it is just humidity then you might want to get a dehumidifier.

The following link has a list of symptoms so you can see the extent to which toxic mold can affect you.


If you want there might be an alternative means to help you if the mold is living and growing in your sinuses. You can contact me to see about that if you are interested or just read up on what some of your options are. The website above http://moldrx4u.com has a lot of information on it and Dr. Edward Close Ph.D., P.E. has done some great work on finding a new solution for toxic mold that is non toxic, and inexpensive.  (+ info)

What are the harmful effects from small benign neoplasms arising from endocrine organs on the patient?

Give positive answers...

Get to know them better. This is not a task only to be accomplished through dating. The more you get to know him or her, the more you can tell if you like them as a friend or something else. Just talk and do fun activities with the person.
Stop and consider why you like the person. There are many physically attractive and smart people out there. But if you see something beyond that really catches your attention, you've marked this person as unique and probably like them. Why else would they stand out from so many?
Consider how many times you think about the person. If you find yourself thinking about this person several times a day, and they are happy thoughts that possibly make your heart beat faster, then you probably like them.
Think how often you laugh at their jokes etc. When you like someone, you will find yourself laughing at things even if they aren't that funny. This is a natural attempt to make them feel appreciated.
If the one conversation between you and the person is stuck in you head and you cant stop telling people about it. this means it was important to you, and you probably like the person.
Consider how much you try to be near them. If you've planned your walking speed to catch a glimpse of them as many times of the day as possible, there is a good reason for that.
Think about how you feel if you touch him or her, by accident or on purpose. If you're still thinking about brushing shoulders several hours ago in school, then that is a special thought and you probably like them.
If you feel you're ready for a relationship, and are confident enough for a positive response, then just go ahead and ask them out. If you're unsure of their feelings for you, there are several wikihows on how to tell if someone likes you.  (+ info)
