Emphysema At Bronchial Asthma

Pulmonary emphysema is a serious chronic complication of bronchial asthma. At this condition the alveolus (blisters, of which lungs tissue consists) are excessively stretched and lose their ability to sufficient reduction due to what oxygen supply to blood and removal of carbon dioxide from organism worsens.

Usually lungs are affected completely [...]

Reflux-Induced Bronchial Asthma

Bronchial asthma can be combined with a reflux disease. Such kind of asthma is called a reflux – induced. Acidic gastric contents at first gets to esophagus, and then last to lumen of bronchial tree. There is an irritation of esophagus nerve endings and reflex spasm of bronchi at reflux.

Pathological [...]

Work sensitization with the gluing materials, varnish and shellac, epoxies, plastic, polyurethane foam and rubber, dyes constitute danger (especially in the textile [...]

Pneumothorax At Bronchial Asthma

Pneumothorax is a rupture of lung tissue of at which air gets to a thoracic cavity between pleura leaves. This infrequent but dangerous complication of neglected bronchial asthma when in the patient emphysema (over stretching of alveolus) developed.

The lung is deflated and practically deleted from respiration process. Easy to distinguish [...]

Night Asthma

Nasal Tests At Bronchial Asthma

Solutions injection of probable allergens into a nose gives good diagnostic results when determining the substance causing attacks of allergic (atopic) bronchial asthma. Nasal tests with bacterial allergens don’t give a progress, perhaps, because of low concentration of provocative antigens in vaccines.

Results of nasal tests well coincide with indicators of [...]

Corticosteroids In Treatment Of Bronchial Asthma

Corticosteroids (glucocorticoid hormones) have a strong action but give mass of side effects. Therefore they are applied at rather serious illnesses and states when other medicines are not effective.

In treatment of bronchial asthma corticosteroids are used as inhalations at medium severe form, prescribed inside and intravenously at the asthmatic status [...]

Skin Test At Bronchial Asthma

Cough-variant asthma is called [...]

Inhalation Tests At Bronchial Asthma

The inhalation test at allergic bronchial asthma is the most exact. At extract inhalation the allergen directly contacts to the tissue of the affected organ. The bronchial provocative test is capable to give a positive result where dermal tests don’t work. It can be applied for hyper sensitivity extent estimation of bronchi and [...]
