Take a deep breath

We are also expert to measure a patient's airway resistance and to do a new test called bronchial invitation which can help with the diagnosis of asthma in some patients.” The respiratory therapists at CMH can be found throughout CMH, from Focused Care

Keep asthma at bay

Keep asthma at bay Asthma is caused by environmental and genetic factors, which can ascendancy how severe asthma is and how well it responds to medication. The upper airway recognises these perceived dangers and protects the more W lungs by shutting down the

Lasting feline asthma and chronic bronchitis affects an estimated 1% of the pet cat citizens. Both conditions are diffuse inflammatory diseases of the lower airway that can lead to unreversible damage called “airway remodeling.

Asthma is an episodic reactive airway bug, meaning that when not under stress, the lungs show little signs of the disease. When an start occurs, several events happen; the bronchioles constrict due to smooth muscle activation.

Viruses not linked to asthma exacerbation severity

Viral and bacterial pathogens are known to be common triggers for asthma exacerbation. There is limited research evaluating the effect of specific viral pathogens on asthma severity and treatment response. Researchers in the current study aimed to fill this knowledge gap by performing a secondary evaluation of a previous prospective cohort study. In the current study, researchers examined the potential effect of 27 different viral and atypical bacterial respiratory pathogens on asthma exacerbation severity and treatment response. No significant association was found between increased exacerbation severity and any one pathogen. However, certain pathogens such as parainfluenza, RSV, and, influenza were associated with increased treatment resistance. While colonized patients and undocumented allergen exposure limit this study, it is strengthened by its large cohort size with a blinded outcome measure. Combined with real-time testing in the ED, this data can help guide initial therapy and projected prognosis. Therapies that are typically reserved for more severe presentations such as magnesium and inhaled anticholinergics may be useful for a wider spectrum of patients. Specifically, these medications may be useful in patients suspected of having a viral trigger underlying their exacerbation as they target viral-mediated activity. The study also adds weight to the importance of influenza and RSV preventative measures to mitigate treatment resistant exacerbations.

I am trying to join the military. I have a history of asthma, but I am not sure if I passed the PFT?

Here are the results of the pulmonary function test
Findings:
Spirometry: Forced vital capacity 4.52 L or 91%. FEV1 5.06 L or 102%. FEV1:FVC 93%. FEF25/75 6.14 L/s or 121% of predicted

Lung volumes: Total lung capacity 6.99


Don't let people's negativity stop you from pursuing your dream. It's not your fault that you developed Asthma. I think you should try to join. While in the process of joining they will tell you what you need to do. Don't worry about "taxpayers


they will disqualify you at meps looking at your med. history
the last thing a soldier needs is a battle getting a asthma attack in the middle of a firefight, do them a favor and dont try to join. it would only waste taxpayers money at meps

Emphysema is a disease, frequently caused by smoking, that results in loss of the elastic elements of lung tissue. The effect will be more like which of the following?

a. cystic fibrosis in which mucus builds up in the lungs


e. Emphysema effects the airways by irritation usually from smoking, causing a swelling and excess mucous production Which, in turn causes obstruction.
