What Is Asthma

  • Asthma is a chronic inflammatory condition of the airways in the lungs. Asthma can either be allergic (most common) or non-allergic.
  • Allergic asthma is due to an allergic response known as a type 1 hypersensitivity reaction. People with asthma’s airways are hypersensitive to certain triggers. The allergic reaction causes narrowing of the small airways and leads to "air trapping" (known as an obstructive airway disease)
  • There are different types of asthma- childhood onset asthma (usually before the age of 5), adult-onset asthma, exercise-induced asthma and aspirin induced asthma. Some asthma is known as seasonal asthma and occurs only at certain times of the year, usually with the changing of seasons such as during autumn or spring.
  • Asthma is diagnosed with lung function tests. A spirometer or a PEFM (Peak Expiratory Flow Meter) is used in conjunction with a bronchodilator. The meter is used to assess your lung function before and after inhaling a fast-acting bronchodilator. A diagnosis of asthma is made when there is an improvement in lung function of more than 20% (PEFM) or more than 12%(when using a spirometer) after the bronchodilator is inhaled.
  • Asthma is diagnosed when a patient has suggestive symptoms and a positive bronchodilator test.

What Is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

A person affected by Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) finds it difficult to breathe.Prolonged smoking damages the lungs.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a combination of two diseases:

  • Chronic bronchitis means the airways that take air to the lungs (bronchial tubes) become inflamed and produces more mucus. As a result of this, the airways become narrow, and breathing process gets complicated.
  • Emphysema is a condition in which the air sacs get damaged and cannot stretch.  Usually, the air sacs in lungs stretch like balloons. Due to emphysema the air that travels in and out of the lungs become slow and leads to breathing shortage.
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease worsens over the time and the damage caused to lungs cannot be reversed. But you can act quickly to prevent further damage and make yourself comfortable while breathing. 

What Is Acute Bronchitis

Acute bronchitis often referred to as chest cold, is an inflammation of the bronchial tubes.

Bronchial tubes are the airways which carry oxygen from the trachea (windpipe) to the lungs and carbon dioxide back from the lungs to the windpipe. When the bronchial tubes get infected by virus or bacteria, the swell and produce mucus. This mucous causes a cough in the infected person.

Bronchitis can be acute or chronic.

In acute bronchitis, the patient is sick for week and symptoms last for 1-2 weeks. It comes quickly and is usually self-limiting.

In chronic bronchitis, the patient has recurrent episodes of a cough and can last for a long time. A cough is accompanied with mucus for almost up to three months in a year, and it may take around two years to recover fully.

What Is Severe acute respiratory syndrome

SARS or severe acute respiratory syndrome was first identified in 2003. It is a serious form of pneumonia. SARS virus infection leads to severe breathing difficulty (acute respiratory distress) and sometimes death too. SARS is highly infectious, but can’t spread by only passing by a patient on the street.

Symptoms Treated With BROCLEAR TABLET

What Are The Symptoms Of Asthma

  • Symptoms of asthma are typically a wheezy or "tight" chest, shortness of breath and recurrent or persistent coughing that is worse at night and early mornings. Coughing or tight chest are often also present after exercise.
  • Exercise-induced asthma typically only produces symptoms after exercise. 

What Are The Symptoms Of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease symptoms never appear till the lung gets damaged to some extent. But once it starts getting affected, the deterioration will happen quickly. Especially continuous smoking will worsen the condition. The main symptom of chronic bronchitis indicates a daily cough and formation of mucus (sputum) every three months in a year for more than two years consistently.

More Symptoms of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease are as follows: 

  • Breath shortness particularly at the time of doing physical activities.
  • Gasping for breath.
  • Tightness felt in the Chest.
  • Regular cleaning of the throat due to the formation of mucus in the lungs.
  • White, yellow, or green coloured mucus produced at the time of coughing.
  • Fingernail beds and lips become blue.
  • Repeated respiratory attack.
  • Fatigue.
  • Unexplained weight loss (in later stages).
  • Leg, feet or ankle swells.

People suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease also experience exacerbations, meaning some days symptoms get worse than other days and last for many days.Some sudden trigger can worsen the disease and may lead to the chronic condition.

What Are The Symptoms Of Acute Bronchitis

Acute bronchitis is contagious and spreads from person to person.  Symptoms include:

  • High-grade fever, a runny nose.
  • Initial dry cough, which later changes to wet cough with mucous.
  • Sneezing, watery eyes.
  • Congestion in the nose.
  • Head ache, a sore throat.
  • Wheezing, tiredness.
  • Body pain.
  • Complications include high-grade fever, breathlessness, chest pain and pneumonia.

You can notice that the mucous changes in colour from white to green and then to yellow. It just means that your immune system is trying to fight off the infection.

What Are The Symptoms Of Severe acute respiratory syndrome

  • Fever, malaise or chills
  • Difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, respiratory distress
  • A headache, muscle aches, body aches
  • a dry cough

Causes of diseases where BROCLEAR TABLET is used

What Are The Causes Of Asthma

  • Mostly asthma starts in childhood and is often outgrown in early adulthood. Some asthmatics may, however, need treatment lifelong.
  • Asthma has a strong genetic component and is part of the so-called "atopic triad" in childhood which includes allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis (eczema) and asthma.
  • Early insult to a child's lungs such as neonatal pneumonia or bronchitis may play a role in developing asthma later.
  • People with asthma have individual triggers. These triggers are commonly sensitivities to house-dust mites, grass, pollen, animal dander, dairy, wheat, nuts and soy products. Chest infections, cold air or air pollution can also trigger an attack.
  • Adult onset starts in the early twenties. There is speculation about possible causes; genetics, smoking and a history of allergies seem to play the biggest part. It affects females more than males.
  • Asthma can be caused/ triggered due to any of the following reasons:

                 1. Airborne substances like pollen, dust mites, pet dander or particles of cockroach waste.

                 2. Respiratory infections such as common cold

                 3. Exercise-induced asthma

                 4. Cold air

                 5. Air pollutants like smoke

                 6. Certain medications including beta blockers, aspirin, ibuprofen  and naproxen

                 7. Strong emotions, stress

                 8. Foods which contain Sulphites and preservatives

                 9. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

Asthma is a combination of environmental and genetic factors, as many people live in same conditions. Still, some people get asthma and some don’t.

What Are The Causes Of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Some of the  factors that may cause Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease are as follows:

Tobacco Smoking causes Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in developed countries. But in the developing countries, along with smoking, fumes also from burning fuel in homes and industries lead to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Up to twenty to thirty percent of persistent smokers develop clinically apparent Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Most of the smokers with smoking histories for many years might produce a reduction in lung function.  Some of them develop a less frequent lung conditions. Without thorough evaluation, it’s hard to diagnose Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Know how lungs get affected

Via two large tubes called bronchi, the air travels down into the windpipe called trachea. The tubes get further divided into many branches like tree branches inside the lungs. The smaller tubes called as (bronchioles) and they end in a collection of tiny air sacs called alveoli.

The alveoli have a thin wall made up of small blood vessels called capillaries. The oxygen passes through the capillaries and reaches the bloodstream during the inhaling process. Simultaneously, the carbon dioxide comes out during the exhaling process.

The natural flexibility of the air sacs and bronchial tubes pushes air out of the body.  Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease makes the air sacs and tubes lose their flexibility. This leads to some air getting trapped in the lungs while exhaling.

Lack Of Alpha-1-Antitrypsin Protein

Close to one percent of the population gets affected by Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease may result due to the inherited disorder. The lowering level of alpha-1-antitrypsin protein happens due to a genetic disorder. Liver prepares the Alpha-1-antitrypsin and secretes into the bloodstream. Thereby, protect the lungs. Lack of Alpha-1-antitrypsin protein will affect not only the liver but also the lungs. Such damage affects both children and adults due to passive smoking.

For adults with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease due to lack of Alpha-1-antitrypsin protein can be treated the same way others get treatment for the disease. Along with that replacing Alpha-1-antitrypsin protein can protect lungs from further damage.

What Are The Causes Of Acute Bronchitis

Acute bronchitis occurs more frequently in children and elderly people. However, all age groups are at risk of getting this disease.

  • The main cause of this infection is a respiratory virus. Around 10% of cases are caused by a bacterial infection. Other factors which might increase the risk of an infection are:
  • It is more common in the winter months.
  • Repeated exposure to other persons with bronchitis or the common cold.
  • People with a previous condition of upper respiratory tract infection may also get acute bronchitis.
  • Exposure to dust, pollutants, chemical fumes, etc.
  • Inhaling cigarette smoke.
  • Failure to take vaccinations against diseases like whooping cough, pneumonia, and flu.
  • Weakened immunity system makes it easy for viruses to cause infections.

What Are The Causes Of Severe acute respiratory syndrome

SARS is caused by a virus of the coronavirus family which also causes common. It can spread by:

  • During coughing or sneezing by the infected person, infected droplets spread in the air. Breathing in or touching these particles can give you SARS infection.
  • The SARS virus lives on tissues, hands, and other surfaces for up to 3 hours after the droplets have dried and up to 6 hours in these droplets. Touching these surfaces can also spread the infection.
  • Hugging, kissing, or close contact with the infected person is the riskiest thing to do.
  • The stool of SARS infected persons is another way of spreading the virus as they can live there for up to four days or years in the freezing temperature.

Worst Foods With BROCLEAR TABLET

What Are The Worst Foods For Asthma

  • Foods with preservatives added to them
  • Wine, beer
  • Shrimps
  • Pickles
  • Eggs (for children, as some children are allergic to eggs)
  • Peanuts
  • Excessive salt in food
  • Oily, fatty foods

What Are The Worst Foods For Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Some of the food items and nutrients that should be cut down from one’s diet if he/she is suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease are as follows:

  • Avoid Salt

More sodium in diet will lead to retention of water in the body and disturbs the breathing pattern. Reduce salt intake directly and indirectly. Use more unsalted spices and herbs. Check the food label before buying any canned food. Limit sodium to 300 – 600 milligrams per serving.

  • Acidic Drinks and Foods

At the end of the oesophagus, a ring of the valve is formed. Due to improper locking of the valve, the acid in the stomach moves to the oesophagus. This causes heartburn, and common heartburn frequently occurring during the week indicates acid reflux disease. People suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease will find acid reflux increasing their current symptoms. Make sure you don’t consume acidic food and drinks. Spicy foods, coffee, tomato sauce, citrus fruits, and juices must be strictly avoided.

  • Aerated Drinks

Just prohibit consuming aerated drinks. They just have loads of sugar and empty calories. Due to carbonation, they lead to add weight to your body. Increase in weight and bloating worsens the Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease condition. The more pressure put on the lungs will put you in breathing problem. Forget about beer, wine, and all drinks leading to dehydration. Only drink water and keep yourself hydrated.

  • Cold Cuts

Bacon, hot dogs, ham, cold cuts, and cured meats contain nitrates. Nitrates improve the shelf life of food items but decrease your lifetime. Hence, avoid nitrate-rich food.

  • Cruciferous Vegetables

Bloating and Gas cause breathing process difficult for those who suffer from lung diseases. Cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower, radishes, broccoli, and cabbage have surplus fibre and nutrients. But they produce more gas and hence your lung condition you must stay away from those vegetables.

What Are The Worst Foods For Acute Bronchitis

  • Reduce the intake of milk as it tends to increase mucous production.
  • Avoid fried food, sugary food and food made from refined flour. Do not eat candies, pastries, fries, ice cream, etc. They contain a lot of sugar and synthetic vitamins, which add little or no value to the body’s nutritional requirement.
  • Avoid alcohol as well as caffeinated beverages. They dehydrate the body and make the mucous hard. This makes it difficult to remove from the body.

What Are The Worst Foods For Severe acute respiratory syndrome

  • Avoid saturated fats like processed and red and meats, as they can increase inflammation.
  • Avoid cold drinks, aerated drinks, and alcohol.
  • Avoid heady foods like fried foods as they are difficult to digest and hamper the immunity.
  • Avoid dairy products for some time as they increase the mucous production.
  • Avoid sugar and all refined starch.

What Are The Things One Should Do To Manage Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Certain things that should be kept in mind to treat and prevent Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease  are as follows:

  • Weight Management

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease patients must maintain a healthy weight according to their height.  Either obese or a fragile body structure will affect equally. Heavyweight will lead to obesity and puts pressure on lungs preventing normal breathing. Underweight will weaken your immune system, and you will get affected easily by any lung disease leading to the development of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

  • Regular Exercise 

Aim at a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise on a daily basis when you suffer from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Consult a doctor to know the right kind of exercise.

  • Make Use of Humidifier

Humidifiers help to get rid of dryness from the air and protect the tissues in the bronchial from drying. Moist air will loosen the mucus and make it easier to cough up.

  • Perform Breathing Exercises

Talk to a medical practitioner and regularly perform breathing exercises. Breathing control techniques strengthen the lungs and ease shortness of breath.

  • Good Sleep

People suffering from it also suffer from sleeping problems like hypoventilation or sleep apnea. Use a mask to have a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, and this is called as CPAP therapy.

What Are The Things One Should Do To Manage Acute Bronchitis

  • If you are suffering from acute bronchitis, do use a tissue to cover your mouth while coughing or sneezing. This will help in preventing your co-workers or friends from contracting this infection.
  • If you are working in factories, do use a mask to avoid inhaling dust and smoke.
  • Do wash your hands frequently, especially in the flu season, to get rid of any virus or germs that you might have picked up.
  • Use humidifiers if you think there is an increase in humidity in the room.
  • Inhale steam three to four times a day so that the mucous gets liquefied. It will clear congestion.
  • Do take vaccination for flu every year.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Do take rest.

What Are The Things One Should Do To Manage Severe acute respiratory syndrome

  • Stay away from the infected person.
  • If you have the infection, cover your face with a handkerchief while coughing or sneezing.

  • Do not smoke, avoid being close to people who smoke.
  • Avoid burning of incense (Pooja agarbatti) at home, since it triggers an asthma attack.
  • Avoid going to kitchen when food is being cooked, especially frying etc.·       
  • Do not delay seeking treatment when you suspect to have a chest infection. Because your airways are hyper reactive, an infection can easily trigger an acute asthma attack.
  • Do not leave your house without your reliever pump or allow your medication to run out. An acute episode can occur at any time and may be fatal.
  • Do not smoke if you have asthma or smoke around your child who has asthma. Passive smoking's effects are just as harmful.

What Are The Best Foods For Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

The nutrients that one must include in their diet when suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease  are as follows:

  • Protein-rich foods:

Protein plays a vital role in protecting the body and fights infection. Due to insufficient intake of protein, lung’s functioning ability will reduce defending mechanism. Include food rich in protein such as dairy products, poultry, eggs, fish, and meat.

  • Potassium-rich foods:

Diuretic medication is prescribed for every Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease sufferer to balance the fluids in the body. Due to continuous consumption of diuretic medicines, potassium level reduces. Balanced potassium level is required for the proper functioning of muscles. Lack of potassium will lead to fatigue and muscle cramps. Eat more potassium-rich foods including tuna, pistachios, salmon, banana, broccoli, yoghurt, and squash. Also, have a word with your physician to understand any effect that potassium could cause to your body.

  • Calcium & Vitamin D rich foods:

When diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, you must take good care of your bone health. Otherwise, you may quickly develop osteoporosis. In turn, osteoporosis leads to fractures and bone breakage. Consume a minimum of 3 and a half eight-ounce glass of low-fat milk on a daily basis to prevent osteoporosis. 

Herring, tuna, and Salmon contain more Vitamin D. Vitamin D in the body helps to increase calcium absorption. Include milk products like cheese and yoghurt for both calcium and vitamin D supplement. 

What Are The Best Foods For Acute Bronchitis

For a speedy recovery from acute bronchitis, proper nourishment is as important as medicines and inhalers. In order to fight a cough and clear the bronchial tubes, you need to pep up your immune system.

  • Green leafy vegetables like fenugreek leaves, spinach, and kale are rich in immunity boosters like antioxidants, flavonoids, and carotenoids. These help the body to fight off infections.
  • Garlic is known to be antibacterial as well as antiviral. Eating raw garlic will help in preventing infections.
  • Vitamin C is known to be a great immunity booster. Citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, sweet lime, papaya, kiwi, strawberry, etc. and vegetables like Brussels sprouts, bell peppers, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, etc. should be added to the diet.
  • Incorporate healthy fatty acids found in walnuts, cold water fish, coconut, etc.
  • Spicy food like chilli peppers is believed to stop a runny nose and thin the mucus and clear congestion.

What Are The Best Foods For Severe acute respiratory syndrome

The diet of a SARS patient should be strictly given as per the advice of a medical practitioner. However, some diets suggested for patients with severe respiratory diseases are:

  • Take lots of fluids like water, fresh juices, green tea etc.
  • Eat lots of colorful fruits and vegetables as they contain high nutrition which helps not only in preventing the risk of an infection but also in fast recovery.
  • Whole grains are full of selenium, carbohydrates, proteins and many other nutritional elements. All these are required to rebuild the lost strength. So, add oatmeal, whole wheat bread, and cereals to your diet.
  • Lean protein helps in immune function and tissue repair. So go for high protein and low saturated fat foods like skinless white-meat poultry, beans, lentils, fish, cold water fish, sardines, and salmons.
  • Chicken soup can provide necessary hydration and nutrition when the body is suffering from any respiratory disease.
  • Carrot, radish and celery juice alkalizes respiratory tract and bloodstream, dissolves mucus, and accelerates detoxification.

What Are The Worst Foods For Acute Bronchitis

  • Reduce the intake of milk as it tends to increase mucous production.
  • Avoid fried food, sugary food and food made from refined flour. Do not eat candies, pastries, fries, ice cream, etc. They contain a lot of sugar and synthetic vitamins, which add little or no value to the body’s nutritional requirement.
  • Avoid alcohol as well as caffeinated beverages. They dehydrate the body and make the mucous hard. This makes it difficult to remove from the body.

Symptoms Treated With BROCLEAR TABLET

What Are The Symptoms Of Asthma

  • Symptoms of asthma are typically a wheezy or "tight" chest, shortness of breath and recurrent or persistent coughing that is worse at night and early mornings. Coughing or tight chest are often also present after exercise.
  • Exercise-induced asthma typically only produces symptoms after exercise. 

What Are The Symptoms Of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease symptoms never appear till the lung gets damaged to some extent. But once it starts getting affected, the deterioration will happen quickly. Especially continuous smoking will worsen the condition. The main symptom of chronic bronchitis indicates a daily cough and formation of mucus (sputum) every three months in a year for more than two years consistently.

More Symptoms of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease are as follows: 

  • Breath shortness particularly at the time of doing physical activities.
  • Gasping for breath.
  • Tightness felt in the Chest.
  • Regular cleaning of the throat due to the formation of mucus in the lungs.
  • White, yellow, or green coloured mucus produced at the time of coughing.
  • Fingernail beds and lips become blue.
  • Repeated respiratory attack.
  • Fatigue.
  • Unexplained weight loss (in later stages).
  • Leg, feet or ankle swells.

People suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease also experience exacerbations, meaning some days symptoms get worse than other days and last for many days.Some sudden trigger can worsen the disease and may lead to the chronic condition.

What Are The Symptoms Of Acute Bronchitis

Acute bronchitis is contagious and spreads from person to person.  Symptoms include:

  • High-grade fever, a runny nose.
  • Initial dry cough, which later changes to wet cough with mucous.
  • Sneezing, watery eyes.
  • Congestion in the nose.
  • Head ache, a sore throat.
  • Wheezing, tiredness.
  • Body pain.
  • Complications include high-grade fever, breathlessness, chest pain and pneumonia.

You can notice that the mucous changes in colour from white to green and then to yellow. It just means that your immune system is trying to fight off the infection.

What Are The Symptoms Of Severe acute respiratory syndrome

  • Fever, malaise or chills
  • Difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, respiratory distress
  • A headache, muscle aches, body aches
  • a dry cough

Causes of diseases where BROCLEAR TABLET is used

What Are The Causes Of Asthma

  • Mostly asthma starts in childhood and is often outgrown in early adulthood. Some asthmatics may, however, need treatment lifelong.
  • Asthma has a strong genetic component and is part of the so-called "atopic triad" in childhood which includes allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis (eczema) and asthma.
  • Early insult to a child's lungs such as neonatal pneumonia or bronchitis may play a role in developing asthma later.
  • People with asthma have individual triggers. These triggers are commonly sensitivities to house-dust mites, grass, pollen, animal dander, dairy, wheat, nuts and soy products. Chest infections, cold air or air pollution can also trigger an attack.
  • Adult onset starts in the early twenties. There is speculation about possible causes; genetics, smoking and a history of allergies seem to play the biggest part. It affects females more than males.
  • Asthma can be caused/ triggered due to any of the following reasons:

                 1. Airborne substances like pollen, dust mites, pet dander or particles of cockroach waste.

                 2. Respiratory infections such as common cold

                 3. Exercise-induced asthma

                 4. Cold air

                 5. Air pollutants like smoke

                 6. Certain medications including beta blockers, aspirin, ibuprofen  and naproxen

                 7. Strong emotions, stress

                 8. Foods which contain Sulphites and preservatives

                 9. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

Asthma is a combination of environmental and genetic factors, as many people live in same conditions. Still, some people get asthma and some don’t.

What Are The Causes Of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Some of the  factors that may cause Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease are as follows:

Tobacco Smoking causes Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in developed countries. But in the developing countries, along with smoking, fumes also from burning fuel in homes and industries lead to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Up to twenty to thirty percent of persistent smokers develop clinically apparent Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Most of the smokers with smoking histories for many years might produce a reduction in lung function.  Some of them develop a less frequent lung conditions. Without thorough evaluation, it’s hard to diagnose Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Know how lungs get affected

Via two large tubes called bronchi, the air travels down into the windpipe called trachea. The tubes get further divided into many branches like tree branches inside the lungs. The smaller tubes called as (bronchioles) and they end in a collection of tiny air sacs called alveoli.

The alveoli have a thin wall made up of small blood vessels called capillaries. The oxygen passes through the capillaries and reaches the bloodstream during the inhaling process. Simultaneously, the carbon dioxide comes out during the exhaling process.

The natural flexibility of the air sacs and bronchial tubes pushes air out of the body.  Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease makes the air sacs and tubes lose their flexibility. This leads to some air getting trapped in the lungs while exhaling.

Lack Of Alpha-1-Antitrypsin Protein

Close to one percent of the population gets affected by Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease may result due to the inherited disorder. The lowering level of alpha-1-antitrypsin protein happens due to a genetic disorder. Liver prepares the Alpha-1-antitrypsin and secretes into the bloodstream. Thereby, protect the lungs. Lack of Alpha-1-antitrypsin protein will affect not only the liver but also the lungs. Such damage affects both children and adults due to passive smoking.

For adults with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease due to lack of Alpha-1-antitrypsin protein can be treated the same way others get treatment for the disease. Along with that replacing Alpha-1-antitrypsin protein can protect lungs from further damage.

What Are The Causes Of Acute Bronchitis

Acute bronchitis occurs more frequently in children and elderly people. However, all age groups are at risk of getting this disease.

  • The main cause of this infection is a respiratory virus. Around 10% of cases are caused by a bacterial infection. Other factors which might increase the risk of an infection are:
  • It is more common in the winter months.
  • Repeated exposure to other persons with bronchitis or the common cold.
  • People with a previous condition of upper respiratory tract infection may also get acute bronchitis.
  • Exposure to dust, pollutants, chemical fumes, etc.
  • Inhaling cigarette smoke.
  • Failure to take vaccinations against diseases like whooping cough, pneumonia, and flu.
  • Weakened immunity system makes it easy for viruses to cause infections.

What Are The Causes Of Severe acute respiratory syndrome

SARS is caused by a virus of the coronavirus family which also causes common. It can spread by:

  • During coughing or sneezing by the infected person, infected droplets spread in the air. Breathing in or touching these particles can give you SARS infection.
  • The SARS virus lives on tissues, hands, and other surfaces for up to 3 hours after the droplets have dried and up to 6 hours in these droplets. Touching these surfaces can also spread the infection.
  • Hugging, kissing, or close contact with the infected person is the riskiest thing to do.
  • The stool of SARS infected persons is another way of spreading the virus as they can live there for up to four days or years in the freezing temperature.

What Are The Things One Should Do To Manage Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Certain things that should be kept in mind to treat and prevent Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease  are as follows:

  • Weight Management

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease patients must maintain a healthy weight according to their height.  Either obese or a fragile body structure will affect equally. Heavyweight will lead to obesity and puts pressure on lungs preventing normal breathing. Underweight will weaken your immune system, and you will get affected easily by any lung disease leading to the development of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

  • Regular Exercise 

Aim at a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise on a daily basis when you suffer from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Consult a doctor to know the right kind of exercise.

  • Make Use of Humidifier

Humidifiers help to get rid of dryness from the air and protect the tissues in the bronchial from drying. Moist air will loosen the mucus and make it easier to cough up.

  • Perform Breathing Exercises

Talk to a medical practitioner and regularly perform breathing exercises. Breathing control techniques strengthen the lungs and ease shortness of breath.

  • Good Sleep

People suffering from it also suffer from sleeping problems like hypoventilation or sleep apnea. Use a mask to have a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, and this is called as CPAP therapy.

What Are The Things One Should Do To Manage Acute Bronchitis

  • If you are suffering from acute bronchitis, do use a tissue to cover your mouth while coughing or sneezing. This will help in preventing your co-workers or friends from contracting this infection.
  • If you are working in factories, do use a mask to avoid inhaling dust and smoke.
  • Do wash your hands frequently, especially in the flu season, to get rid of any virus or germs that you might have picked up.
  • Use humidifiers if you think there is an increase in humidity in the room.
