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 Bacterial Infections

  • Bacteria are the single celled, microscopic organisms which are essential for many processes of human body and a few of them are responsible for causing harm. A bacterial infection refers to the condition when there is accumulation of harmful bacteria inside or on the human body. 

What Is Fever

When the temperature of the body rises above normal i.e. above 100.4°F or 38°C, this is considered as fever, controlled hyperthermia or pyrexia. A fever generally is not hazardous on its own. However, sometimes a fever can indicate the presence of some other condition such as an infection. A fever or high body temperature is a way by which the immune system of our body tries to fight any infection.

Fevers can be classified according to:

Length of time

  • Acute: Lasts less than 7 days e.g. upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Sub-Acute: Lasts up to 14 days e.g. typhoid.
  • Persistent or Chronic: Lasts over 14 days e.g. HIV, cancers, tuberculosis, etc.

Severity

  • Low (100.5-102.1°F or 38.1-39°C)
  • Moderate (102.2-104.0°F or 39.1-40°C)
  • High (104.1-06.0°F or 40.1-41.1°C)
  • Hyperpyrexia (above 106.0°F or 41.1°C)

Fevers can be:

  • Continuous or sustained: Does not vary more than 1.5°F or 1°C, over 24 hours, but is not normal e.g. typhoid
  • Intermittent: The fever remains for many hours in the day but does not occur all the time e.g. tuberculosis
  • Remittent: In this case, the fever varies more than 2°C and does not become normal e.g. infective endocarditis

Sometimes, the fever may exist for many days or weeks without any reason and these are known as FUO or fevers of undetermined origin. 

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 Cough

A cough is referred to as tussis as well. It is a spontaneous reflex, which many animals and human have. The purpose of a cough is to clean the breathing passage and throat of the mucus, fluids, irritants, microbes, and foreign particles. In a cough, lungs expel the air rapidly.

A cough can be a deliberate or an involuntary action. A cough often gets cleared without any medicines, but sometimes people take cough syrups to soothe the irritation caused by a cough. But some of the coughs can be a symptom of serious illness.

Cough reflexes can be classified into three phases:

  • An inhalation that means breathing in.
  • Pressure is increased in the lungs and the throat with the closed vocal cords.
  • On the opening of the vocal cords, the person may experience a sudden expulsion of air that creates the characteristic cough sound.
  • When someone coughs abnormally, then it may be a symptom of a certain disease. Some of the coughs can be caused due to contagious diseases such as common cold. Some of the causes can be non- infectious as well. 

What Is Gastric problem

  • Gastric problem occurs in the stomach or oesophagus. The gastric troubles are disturbance of gastric mucosa (mucous membrane layer of the stomach), acids contact stomach nerve endings.
  • This problem can be acute or chronic. The acute gastric trouble gets away quickly but the chronic disorder can further lead to ulcers. Antacids, H2 antagonists or proton pump inhibitors can be used to treat the issue. 

What Is Irritable bowel syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a group of symptoms characterized by abdominal discomfort along with troubled bowel habits. It is not the as inflammatory bowel disease but a more serious condition that causes inflammation in the digestive tract and can result in severe complications. It is a chronic condition and seeks a long-term management. Unlike Inflammatory Bowel Disease, this does not cause changes in bowel tissue. It is classified based on the predominance of diarrhea or constipation or both such as:

  • IBS-D: Diarrhoea-Predominant.
  • IBS-C: Constipation- Predominant.
  • IBS-A: Alternating stool pattern (also IBS-M).
  • IBS-U: For those who don’t fit under any of the above categories.

What Is Stomach ulcers

  • Stomach ulcers are the painful sores or ulcers found in the stomach or the first part of small intestine (duodenum). These happen when the thick layer of mucus lining in the stomach gets away and the digestive acids in the stomach start degrading the lining of the stomach. 
  • It is suggested to start the treatment right-away for the ulcers. 

What Is Immunity building

Immunity building refers to any measures taken to assist and strengthen the body’s immune system to function optimally and to help ward off disease. Proper functioning is necessary for us to maintain ideal health.

The state in which the immune system is functioning sub-optimally is called immunodeficiency. Immunodeficiency states can have serious consequences e.g. predisposing to life-threatening infective diseases or cancer. Overfunctioning of the immune system is also common. Conditions in which the immune system over functions are hypersensitivity reactions or allergies, as well as autoimmune diseases (when the immune system recognises the body's cells as "foreign" and starts to attack them).

The immune system is intricately and very detailed in its design. The system is divided into innate and adaptive immunity. Innate immunity is the body’s first defence against external factors. These include physical defence mechanisms such as skin, mucosa and cell walls, as well as scavenger immune molecules that catch foreign particles in the blood and lymphatic streams.

 It is an immediate defence mechanism and non-specific. It does not adapt over time. White blood cells called macrophages and phagocytes form part of the body’s innate system. Once the innate immune system recognises a threat to the body, these cells activate a system called the complement cascade which leads to further activation of more of the immune system's cells.

The adaptive immune system is more focused and contains antibodies that are formed after exposure to specific foreign substances called antigens. Antibodies are called immunoglobulins, and lymphocytes are the cells responsible for activation of the innate immune system.

Poor diet, fatigue, stress as well as certain substances or medications can all lead to over- or underperformance of the immune system. Organs that form part of the immune systems include your spleen, tonsils/ adenoids, lymphatic system and bone marrow.

Causes of diseases where DABUR HONITUS COUGH SYRUP 100ML is used

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 Bacterial Infections

  • Bacterial Infections can be caught by someone’s sneezing, coughing, sex, contaminated food or water, infected pets or livestock.    

What Are The Causes Of Fever

The most common cause of fever are infections; however, various illnesses, conditions, and medicines can also cause the temperature of the body to rise including:

  • Infectious diseases and infections (like common cold, flu, malaria, HIV, pneumonia, gastroenteritis and infectious mono).
  • Illegal and legal drugs (cocaine, amphetamines, and antibiotics).
  • Injury or trauma (stroke, heart attack, burns, heat exhaustion or heat stroke).
  • Damage to tissue (due to surgery, crush syndrome, hemorrhage, heart attack and hemolysis (when red blood cells break open and release hemoglobin).
  • Other medical conditions like lupus, cancers, arthritis, skin inflammation, blood clots, inflammatory bowel disease, gout, embolisms and metabolic disorders.

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

What Are The Causes Of Cough

  • Asthma: People with asthma attack can frequently lead to cough-related problems. Some are inflicted with such complications due to various respiratory infections.
  • Upper Airway Cough Syndrome (UACS): After one’s nose generates excessive mucus, it goes down to the throat, causing cough.
  • Bronchitis: Bronchitis is an issue that causes inflammation in the bronchial tubes. This issue further triggers a cough due to the production of coloured sputum.
  • Tuberculosis
  • Pollution, smoking
  • Flu, certain allergies

What Are The Causes Of Gastric problem
