Asthma Myth: Use of steroids as a treatment option and its side effects
 
02:08
A lot of parents have concerns about side effects from steroids. Steroids are present inside all of our bodies but when we use them as a medicine, they can help treat inflammation and swelling, which is a big part of asthma. Steroids come in many different forms, as well as many different doses. When steroids are given by mouth, or through a shot, the dose is a lot higher than what we use when given through an inhaler. An important thing to remember is that the steroids we use in medicine to treat asthma are not the same as anabolic steroids which are used by weight lifters and athletes to make their muscles big and strong. Your child will not develop big muscles by using their inhaler or any of the side effects associated with anabolic steroids. There is a common side effect that can occur if you use inhaled steroids, however. This is called thrush. Thrush is a white coating that can develop inside the mouth or on the tongue. It is very easy to treat if it does occur. However, it is also very easy to prevent. Just make sure that your child brushes their teeth and tongue after they use their inhaler or rinses their mouth. This should be done every time they use their steroid inhaler to help prevent thrush from occurring.

Asthma Treatment and Medications to Prevent Exacerbations or Asthma Attacks
 
02:52
This a review from the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. It reviews how using the correct asthma medication and using appropriate asthma treatment will prevent asthma attacks or asthma exacerbations. Using inhaled corticosteroids, long acting beta agonists and leukotriene antagonists will control asthma inflammation and eosinophils. The goal is to have great asthma control and that will result in less asthma symptoms and attacks. This will reduce the need for oral steroids, like prednisone. It will also prevent or reduce asthma emergency room visits and asthma hospitalizations.

Asthma Treatment with Xolair for Severe Asthma
 
03:10
Asthma treatment for severe asthmatics. Those asthmatics that are on triple therapy and still do not have control could be on oral steroids every day. There is another therapy of anti-IgE called Xolair or omalizumab that binds IgE or allergy antibodies. This gives allergy control for asthma and allergic rhinitis. You have to qualify for Xolair by having positive skin prick testing to allergens and an elevated IgE level. We have had wonderful results with this therapy.

Asthma how-to: How to use an inhaler with a spacer and mask
 
02:17
There are many treatment options for children with asthma, largely depending on the age and preference of the child. Metered dose inhalers, which are also commonly called puffers or inhalers, spray the medicine out so that you can breathe it deep into the lungs. Inhalers deliver medicine very quickly and are compact and light so they can easily be taken with you wherever you go. It's very important to use your inhaler the correct way to make sure the medicine gets deposited in the lungs, where it works the best. Incorrect technique can leave some of the particles from the medicine on your tongue or throat, where it won't help at all. A spacer, or holding chamber, is an attachment that should always be used with your inhaler. The spacer holds the medicine in place so you can breathe it in easier. Spacers with a mask on one end are used for smaller kids and babies. First, remove the cap from the bottom of your inhaler. When you get your new inhaler from the pharmacy, you need to "prime" or "waste" it by spraying the medicine into the air four times. Now, fit your inhaler into the opening at the end of the spacer. Shake the inhaler well for 10 seconds. Place mask tightly over the nose and mouth, then push down on the inhaler once. Now the medicine is inside the spacer. Breathe in and out six times through the mask. Rinse your mouth out with water or brush your teeth after using controller medicines such as inhaled steroids. Many times, the correct dose of your medicine will be to inhale two puffs. If this is what is prescribed for you, then wait one minute after the first puff, and then follow all of the steps again Clean the plastic holder of the inhaler each week. Clean the spacer and mask each week by soaking in warm soapy water for 15 minutes and run water through it, shake off water and set overnight to dry. Remember if you have questions, call your doctor's office, asthma care team or pharmacy.

Asthma for USMLE Step 2
 
32:49
Asthma will be discussed, in particular its pathophysiology, causes, sign and symptoms chronic management and management of acute exacerbation. This handwritten asthma lecture is for medical students planning on taking the USMLE. Asthma is defined based on it pathophysiology, airway inflammation and intermitten obstruction due to bronchial hyperresonsive. This is typically mediated by mast cells, eosinophils and other markers which leads to airway edema and mucus plug. This obstruction increases restriction and decreased expiratory flow rate. Therefore asthma is considered an obstructive disease. CAUSES Environmental allergen Viral infection such as rhinovirus and RSV Sinusitis Exercise induced GERD - acid in esophagus trigger vagus response and bronchoconstriction Aspirin induced increase leukotrienes leading to bronchoconstriction Obesity Occupational Exposure Emotional CLINICAL SIGN AND SYMPTOMS OF ASTHMA Begins at any age, but generally diagnosed before 7 years old and remit at adolescents. Cough - nonproductive, paroxysmal in night and early morning Chest Tightness and Chest Pain Wheeze which is initially end expiratory then present in entire expiration and then present on expiration and inspiration. Finally silent chest which is an emergency. Tachypnea initially and when severe hypoventilation with use of accessory muscles (Sternucleiodomastoid). Pulsus parodoxus where on inspiration there is a drop in blood pressure. Asthma patients also become breathless and can only speak in phrases and words. EVALUATION Astham can be diagnosed by clinical findings. Also use spirometry and rule out other alternatives. Bronchoprovocation test is the gold standard by giving asthma patient methacholine and mannitol or exercise and wait for symptoms to occur. If positive need to rule our COPD, rhinitis and other causes. However, negative rules out asthma. In spirometry the asthma patient pushes out air in one second (FEV1) and the ratio of FEV1/FVC is less than 80%. And asthma will be reversed with bronchodilator and the COPD, Emphysema and Bronchiectasis is not reversible. The peak expiratory flow monitor will be low in asthma patients. Patient should be greater than 80% of peak value depending on values in chart. Blood and sputum eosinophils tend to be greater than 4% in asthma and if greater than 8% there are more differentials. Also helps guide therapy. Chest X-ray in asthma patients is normal, but it helps rule out other causes. STAGING Intermittent asthma, the patient is asymptomatic between exacerbations. Will have less than 2 episodes per week and 2 night episodes per month. Normal Activity Level. Severe exacerbation defined as requirement of oral glucocorticoid less than once a year. FEV1 is greater than 80% Mild Persistent asthma the patient has 2-6 episodes per week, 3-4 nights out of the month. Moderate persistent asthma the patient has daily episodes and more than 1 night symptom a week. Some acitivity limitation. FEV1 is between 60-80% and the FEV1/FVC ratio is decreased by 5% Severe persistent asthma the patient has symptoms throughout the day and night symptoms every night. Severe Activity limitation. Acute exacerbation of asthma more than 2 times a year. FEV1 is less than 60% and FEV1/FVC is decreased by more than 5%. MANAGEMENT of ASTHMA Education has decreased mortality the most with discussion of asthma action plan and avoiding triggers. Step system for asthma management a step up is required with 2 days a week requirement of SABA and step down with well controlled for 3 months. Step 1 - Short Acting Beta Agonist (SABA) as needed Step 2 - Low dose Inhaled Corticosteroids (ICS) Daily Step 3 - Low dose ICS and LABA Step 4 - LABA and Medium dose ICS Step 5 - LABA and High Dose ICS and omalizumab Step 6 - LABA and High Dose ICS and Oral Glucocorticoid and Omalizumab due to allergies Alternative to LABA is LTRA, Zileuton, and Theophylline. MANAGEMENT OF ACUTE EXACERBATION OF ASTHMA If Peak Expiratory Flow is 50-79% then take 2-6 puffs of SABA 3 times ever 20 minutes and repeat PEF. If better continue SABA and change medication. If doesn't improve, take Oral glucocorticoids continue SABA and change medications. If Less than 50% then go to emergency Department. Managing asthmatic patient in emergency department is first by doing physical examination to confirm asthma. Start management with oxygen. If cannot reach greater than 90% then intubate and admit to ICU. Otherwise start SABA and if PEF is less than 40% start with SABA, Ipratropium and oral Glucocorticoid. Reassess with PEF and if improving (70%) then observe and discharge. If not improving then admit into wards monitor vitals. If worsening admit to ICU and give IV glucocorticoids and mechanical ventilation.

06:27
Full Prescribing Information is available below: http://aiporphyria.com/pdf/panhematin-marketing-PI.pdf Click the "Show more" button below for Important Information. Tracy and her family members are quite familiar with the effects of Acute Intermittent Porphyria. Symptom recognition and a good knowledge of family history were vital in getting Tracy's diagnosis. Watch the video to learn more about how she successfully manages her AIP and makes informed health decisions with the support of her family and physicians. Indications And Usage PANHEMATIN is a hemin for injection prescription medication used to relieve repeated attacks of acute intermittent porphyria related to the menstrual cycle in affected women, after initial carbohydrate therapy is known or suspected to be inadequate. Limitations of Use -Before giving PANHEMATIN, consider an appropriate trial of carbohydrates [i.e., 400 grams of glucose (a carbohydrate or sugar) per day for 1 to 2 days]. -Attacks of porphyria may progress to a point where irreversible nerve damage has occurred. PANHEMATIN therapy is intended to prevent an attack from reaching the critical stage of nerve breakdown. PANHEMATIN is not effective in repairing nerve damage that has already occurred. Important Safety Information -PANHEMATIN is not for patients known to be allergic to this drug. -Vein inflammation is possible. Use a large arm vein or a central line to administer PANHEMATIN to minimize the possibility of vein inflammation. -Elevated iron levels may occur. Your doctor must monitor your iron levels if you receive multiple courses of PANHEMATIN. -PANHEMATIN has a passing and mild blood thinning effect. Avoid blood thinners during PANHEMATIN therapy. -Reversible kidney shutdown has occurred when too high a dose of PANHEMATIN was given in a single dose. -PANHEMATIN may carry a risk of transmitting agents that can cause infections, such as viruses, and theoretically, the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) agent. -Most common side effects are headache, fever, infusion site reactions, and vein inflammation. -To report SUSPECTED SIDE EFFECTS, contact Recordati Rare Diseases Inc. at 1-888-575-8344, or FDA at 1800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch. -When taking PANHEMATIN, do not take drugs such as estrogens (e.g., oral contraceptives), barbiturates (drugs that help with sleep and used to treat epilepsy) or steroids (body hormone-like drugs), because such drugs can trigger an attack or make an attack worse.

Traditionally, patients are treated with breathing and oral medication to control throttle inflammation and acne attack. Often it is necessary to avoid attacks and hospital visits Mounting evidence suggests that aid reduces the specific lifestyle changes and does not intense attacks but also reduces the integrity treatment to help control Asthma. Ginger: When researchers are combined with asthma medication that are commonly used, ginger is more than air dispersion rather than medicines. Outgoing ginger is a compound used to smooth muscle treatments to make the airways work directly on reducing muscle thrombosis contraction. Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6, which is called Piraidoksin, shows special benefits for asthma, depending on the steroids. B6 6 is a person who has been described as a low-level, acoustic supplement used to reduce respiratory episodes, who were initially considered as improved breathing, and B. However, some significant differences have been shown in some studies, so you should not discuss your goal level before starting with his first practitioners. Yoga: If you are not getting enough total body and mind exercise, then another benefit. Asthma was about to show deep breath in cancer research, and as a result, symptoms and consequences, such as advanced, especially during the attack. Regular yoga practices will help to focus deep and long breathing air and can be extremely beneficial during asthma attack.

These differ from episodes of poor asthma control in the diurnal variability of airflow; a key marker of poor asthma control may not change during an exacerbation. A major advancement in the new guidelines of the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) (EPR3) (1) is the creation of a chapter on asthma exacerbations management. In addition to this, the new guidelines presents different spirometry cut points for assessing the severity of acute asthma (exacerbations) against chronic asthma. These and other changes underscore the distinction between managing acute and chronic asthma. Early treatment of asthma exacerbations is the best strategy for treatment. Important elements of early treatment at the patient's home, should include: A written action plan for the asthma exacerbation itself Recognition of the first signs and symptoms of it getting worse Intensification of appropriate therapy by increasing ß-agonists The short duration of action The addition of a short duration of oral corticosteroids Removal or the pulling away from an environmental factor that contributes to exacerbation And the prompt communication between the patient and the clinician The individual should seek adequate emergency care for severe manifestations, or both. Despite the adherence to an optimal asthmatic chronic care, it is increasingly recognized that some patients need emergency office visits or for them to visit the emergency department (ED) for further care to the patient. Treatment of Exacerbations of Asthma 1. Pre-hospital care picture of ambulanceThe Panel of Experts recommends that the Emergency Medical Service Providers (EMS) should administer additional oxygen and inhaled short-acting bronchodilators to all patients who show signs or symptoms of asthma exacerbation as a disease. EMS providers should have a standing order to allow them to provide albuterol to patients with asthma exacerbation, which is consistent with their scope of practice permitted by law and local medical guidelines. They should also have a nebulizer, an inhaler, a holding chamber, or both for the administration of ß2-agonists. If there are no possibilities of a ß2-agonists treatment, subcutaneous epinephrine or terbutaline may also be administered for severe exacerbations. ED Management Emergency SignIn ED, the severity of asthma exacerbation determines the intensity of treatment and frequency of patient monitoring. In general, the main treatment (e.g., oxygen administration, inhaled β2 agonists and system corticosteroids) is the same for all exacerbations of asthma or asthma exacerbations, but the dose and frequency of administration, as well as the frequency at which patients are being monitored, differ and depends on the severity of the exacerbations. In addition, there are three primary treatments, treatment with ipratropium bromide for inhalation or other agents may also be required in other severe exacerbations. Oxygen woman with oxygen maskOxygen administration is recommended by a mask or through nasal cannulae to maintain the SaO2 over 90% (95% of pregnant women and patients with concomitant heart disease). Oxygen saturation should be monitored until there is a clear response to the bronchodilator treatment. Short-acting β2 agonists inhaled.All patients should be treated with inhaled β2-agonists because repeated or continuous administration of these agents is most effective in reversing airway obstruction.

Those hospitalized with C-O-P-D are often treated with steroids. While effective, steroids are associated with many undesirable side effects. A new study shows patients given low dose oral steroids do just as well if not better than those given the high dose I-V therapy. Catherine Dolf has more in this week's JAMA Report.

How to Get Rid of Asthma | 7 Simple Steps to Get Rid of Asthma

How to Get Rid of Asthma | 7 Simple Steps to Get Rid of Asthma What is Asthma ? Asthma (AZ-ma) is a chronic (long-term) lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways. Asthma causes recurring periods of wheezing (a whistling sound when you breathe), chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing. The coughing often occurs at night or early in the morning. Asthma affects people of all ages, but it most often starts during childhood. In the United States, more than 25 million people are known to have asthma. About 7 million of these people are children. Step # 1: Use an inhaled medication. Albuterol is a short-acting beta-2 agonist that temporarily relaxes airway muscles to help you control your breathing. Atrovent is an inhaled anticholinergic that can help to provide immediate relief. Atrovent works similarly to albuterol. Albuterol is used as a quick treatment for acute symptoms. Chronic symptoms are usually treated with a Flovent Diskus, which must be prescribed by your doctor. Step # 2: Take an oral prescription medication such as Theophylline. Theophylline is taken daily and is used as a long-term treatment to suppress asthma symptoms. Theophylline relaxes the muscles around airways, making it easier to breathe. Prednisone is a prescription medication is also used for long-term treatment to treat more severe asthma symptoms. Prednisone is only taken when needed. Step # 3: Exercise and maintain a healthy weight. Exercising daily not only helps to keep your weight down, it also strengthens your lungs. Strengthening your lungs reduces the pressure they feel when it’s difficult for you to breathe. Exercising doesn’t necessarily mean working out at a gym. Try taking a walk during your lunch break. Aim for 15 to 20 minutes of continuous, moderate activity per day. Eating healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables allow your body to use the food you eat as energy helping you to maintain a healthier weight. Step # 4: Use an air conditioner to reduce humidity and cleanse inside air. Clean the filters in your air conditioner and furnace regularly. Keeping the air in your home or office clean reduces the presence of allergens and can prevent coughs. Step # 5: Wear a face mask or cover your mouth with a clean scarf if cold, dry air aggravates your asthma. Step # 6: Control your stress and remain calm. Asthma can produce bouts of coughing lasting for a few seconds up to several minutes. Because these coughs can cause an attack, it is common for an asthma sufferer to become anxious or fearful. Breathe deeply or drink some water to calm the cough. Learning breathing exercises is a proactive way to learn how to calm yourself down when you become stressed. Step # 7: Drink water regularly to keep the bronchial tubes moist. I hope you understand my all Steps to get rid of Asthma.

5 Different Emphysema Treatment Options
 
04:19
5 Different Emphysema Treatment Options Destruction of the air sacs in the lungs causes emphysema. It causes severe breathing difficulties. Long-term exposure to tobacco smoke or other chemical irritants destroys the air sacs and the elastic fibers that keep the air sacs open while inhaling air. Symptoms are usually mild at the early stage of emphysema. Over time as the disease progresses, severe shortness of breath interferes with the daily activities. Emphysema cannot be reversed. However, with appropriate treatment progression of the disease can be delayed. Easing breathing is the primary goal of emphysema treatment. Inhaled steroids and bronchodilators are used for relaxing the airways, thereby improving circulation of air through the air sacs. Emphysema patients are also taught breathing techniques and breathing exercises that help to strengthen the lungs and reduce breathing difficulties. Treatment Options For Emphysema. 1. Bronchodilators. Bronchodilators are the most widely used medications for emphysema. By dilating or opening the airways, they ease breathing. Bronchodilators can be inhaled, taken orally or injected. Three types of bronchodilators are used in emphysema treatment – anticholinergics, beta2-agonists and theophylline. Anticholinergic and beta2-agonist bronchodilators are used in the form of inhaler or added to nebulizer solution. Long-acting bronchodilators are frequently used by emphysema patients to avoid breathing difficulties for several hours. Dryness of throat is a common side effect of inhaler use. Anticholinergics work on the central airways of the lungs whereas the beta2-agonists help to relax the smaller airways. For best result, therefore, anticholinergics are combined with beta2-agonists. Although short-acting beta-2 agonist is primarily used for treatment, long-acting beta2-agonists are recommended at the advanced stage of emphysema. Theophylline is sold as oral pills and intravenous drug. Nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, headache, rapid heartbeat, muscle cramps and hyperactivity are possible side effects of theophylline. 2. Corticosteroids. The anti-inflammatory effect of corticosteroids helps to ease breathing by suppressing inflammation of the airways. They are frequently used in combination with long-acting bronchodilators by people with severe emphysema. Oral corticosteroids are used during emphysema exacerbations. Given the side effects of oral corticosteroids such as weakening of bones, diabetes and high blood pressure, they are unsuitable for long-term use. 3. Breathing Exercises. Certain breathing strategies help emphysema patients to breathe easily. The pursed lip breathing technique is the most effective breathing method for people suffering from emphysema. With the lips tightly closed, you must inhale air through the nose for about two seconds. Now with the lips pursed, exhale air through the narrow opening between the lips. 4. Supplements. Certain supplements are considered beneficial for people with emphysema. Coenzyme Q10 supplements helps to delay degeneration of the tissues. By promoting renewal of body cells, coenzyme Q10 supplements can slow down progression of emphysema. To reduce production of mucus in the respiratory tract, N-acetyl-cysteine or L-glutathione supplements may be very helpful. 5. Herbs. Herbs that strengthen the immune system and reduce the risk of developing infections of the respiratory tract are beneficial for emphysema patients. Garlic is a natural antibacterial agent that can be taken daily by emphysema patients. Respiratory infections can be treated with Echinacea and goldenseal. =============== Thank you for watching the video! Please like, comment and share.

10 Ways to Treat Asthma
 
09:05
10 Ways to Treat Asthma 1. Inhalation Corticosteroids These cortisone-like medicines are frequently prescribed by doctors to people struggling with asthma. If they’re used properly, they can significantly reduce the intensity of asthma symptoms, including difficulty breathing and coughing. They’re also designed to help reduce the number and severity of asthma attacks, which can be very dangerous. Of course, inhalation corticosteroids are hardly perfect. According to the Mayo Clinic, corticosteroids won’t stop an asthma attack that has already started – meaning they’re not a great emergency tool. Also, they won’t have a significant impact on asthma symptoms if the patient fails to use them regularly—which in most cases will mean every day (or even several times each day). That can make them problematic for children and people with memory difficulties. 2. Leukotriene Receptor Antagonists Leukotriene receptor antagonists are a non-steroidal oral medication for asthma. Often referred to as LTRAs or anti-inflammatory bronchoconstriction preventors, the Asthma Society of Canada notes that they’re effective because they stop the chemical reaction that can result in significant inflammation of the lungs, thereby making it easier for an asthma patient to breathe. Leukotriene receptor antagonists are rarely the first treatment pursued by doctors following an asthma diagnosis. Typically, physicians will employ an inhaled steroid and, should that fail, may turn to LTRAs. This form of treatment is particularly effective for people who prefer pills over inhalers, which can be difficult to use—particularly for seniors and children. They also have few of the side effects seen with inhaled steroids, though LTRAs are often less effective. 3. Short-Acting Beta Agonists Short-acting beta agonists help reduce tightening of the muscles surrounding the airways by forcing these muscles to relax and widen—resulting in easier breathing for the asthma patient. Currently, there are 2 different kinds of beta agonists on the market: short-acting and long-acting. Short-acting beta agonists can be effective within 5-minutes of being taken, but tend to have an impact for only 4- to 6-hours. Unlike long-acting beta agonists, short-acting beta agonists can be used to have an immediate impact and are ideal for emergencies—like asthma attacks. However, they shouldn’t be used more than once or twice a week 4. Long-Acting Beta Agonists Unlike short-acting beta agonists, Long-acting beta agonists last much longer than 4-to 6-hours—up to 12-hours, in some cases. The American Thoracic Society (ATC) considers long-acting beta agnonists maintenance drugs, which means they must be taken over a longer period in order to be fully effective. Long-acting beta agonists are designed for people with persistent asthma problems—to the point where they are suffering some serious breathing problems on a regular basis and having to use short-acting beta agonists more than a few times each week. Popular long-acting beta agonist products include Advair and Symbicort. Most of these products employ a steroid to help relax the muscles surrounding the airways. 5. Antihistamines Antihistamines can be a useful treatment for asthma. However, it’s important to keep in mind that antihistamines—like Allegra or Benadryl—can come with significant side effects, including drowsiness. In addition, FamilyDoctor.org states that some antihistamines may conflict with other medications, so it’s important every asthma patient consult their doctor before using an antihistamine to treat their condition. Overall, antihistamines are useful when treating infrequent, less intense bouts of asthma. Those people who frequently deal with serious shortness of breath should talk to their physician about a treatment that more directly addresses their condition. 6. Xolair Xolair, which is also known as omalizumab, is an antibody designed to reduce the body’s allergic responses. The drug is most often prescribed to help people deal with severe asthma in adults and children over the age of 12. It won’t help stop an asthma attack and is typically prescribed only after many other medicines have been tried, without success. In other words, Xolair is not for people with mild asthma. In fact, it’s designed for people who have such severe problems with asthma that the condition could be considered life threatening. It’s also important to note that Xolair can have serious side effects. In some cases people have suffered severe allergic reactions right after taking the drug, which is typically injected into the skin and given only once every two to four weeks.

Stepwise withdrawal of inhaled corticosteroids in COPD – Video abstract 93321
 
03:32
Video abstract of review paper “Applying the wisdom of stepping down inhaled corticosteroids in patients with COPD: a proposed algorithm for clinical practice” published in the International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease by Kaplan. Abstract: Current guidelines for the management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) recommend limiting the use of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) to patients with more severe disease and/or increased exacerbation risk. However, there are discrepancies between guidelines and real-life practice, as ICS are being overprescribed. In light of the increasing concerns about the clinical benefit and long-term risks associated with ICS use, therapy needs to be carefully weighed on a case-by-case basis, including in patients already on ICS. Several studies sought out to determine the effects of withdrawing ICS in patients with COPD. Early studies have deterred clinicians from reducing ICS in patients with COPD as they reported that an abrupt withdrawal of ICS precipitates exacerbations, and results in a deterioration in lung function and symptoms. However, these studies were fraught with numerous methodological limitations. Recently, two randomized controlled trials and a real-life prospective study revealed that ICS can be safely withdrawn in certain patients. Of these, the WISDOM (Withdrawal of Inhaled Steroids During Optimized Bronchodilator Management) trial was the largest and first to examine stepwise withdrawal of ICS in patients with COPD receiving maintenance therapy of long-acting bronchodilators (ie, tiotropium and salmeterol). Even with therapy being in line with the current guidelines, the findings of the WISDOM trial indicate that not all patients benefit from including ICS in their treatment regimen. Indeed, only certain COPD phenotypes seem to benefit from ICS therapy, and validated markers that predict ICS response are urgently warranted in clinical practice. Furthermore, we are now better equipped with a larger armamentarium of novel and more effective long-acting β2-agonist/long-acting muscarinic antagonist combinations that can be considered by clinicians to optimize bronchodilation and allow for safer ICS withdrawal. In addition to providing a review of the aforementioned, this perspective article proposes an algorithm for the stepwise withdrawal of ICS in real-life clinical practice.

Allergic rhinitis treatment - Treatment of allergic rhinitis should first and foremost include avoidance of the relevant allergens. This will involve modifying the environment at home and at work. Nasal steroid spray is the most effective medication for the prevention of rhinitis symptoms, whereas acute symptoms should be treated with oral antihistamines. Long-term use of over-the-counter decongestant sprays should be avoided. For long-term management of moderate to severe allergic rhinitis, especially if the patient fails to adequately respond to allergen avoidance and medications, patients should consider undergoing desensitization treatment to induce tolerance to the relevant allergens. Astham treatment - The mainstay of drug treatment for asthma is inhaled corticosteroid. These drugs can prevent airway inflammation, and are effective in reducing symptoms, exacerbations and rescue medication use. They have been shown to prevent airway remodeling, a process that leads to irreversible loss of lung function.

This video deals with Quick n easy way to memorise about Corticosteroid drugs.Corticosteroids are a class of steroid hormones that are produced in the adrenal cortex of vertebrates, as well as the synthetic analogues of these hormones. Two main classes of corticosteroids, glucocorticoidsand mineralocorticoids, are involved in a wide range of physiologic processes, including stress response, immune response, and regulation of inflammation, carbohydratemetabolism, protein catabolism, blood electrolyte levels, and behavior.[1]Synthetic pharmaceutical drugs with corticosteroid-like effects are used in a variety of conditions, ranging from brain tumors to skin diseases. Dexamethasone and its derivatives are almost pure glucocorticoids, while prednisone and its derivatives have some mineralocorticoid action in addition to the glucocorticoid effect. Fludrocortisone(Florinef) is a synthetic mineralocorticoid. Hydrocortisone (cortisol) is typically used for replacement therapy, e.g. for adrenal insufficiency and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Medical conditions treated with systemic corticosteroids:[3][4] Allergy and respirology medicineAsthma (severe exacerbations)Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD)Allergic rhinitisAtopic dermatitisHivesAngioedemaAnaphylaxisFood allergiesDrug allergiesNasal polypsHypersensitivity pneumonitisSarcoidosisEosinophilic pneumoniaInterstitial lung diseaseDermatologyPemphigus vulgarisContact dermatitisEndocrinology (usually at physiologic doses)Adrenal insufficiencyCongenital adrenal hyperplasiaGastroenterologyUlcerative colitisCrohn’s diseaseAutoimmune hepatitisHematologyLymphomaLeukemiaHemolytic anemiaIdiopathic thrombocytopenic purpuraMultiple MyelomaRheumatology/ImmunologyRheumatoid arthritisSystemic lupus erythematosusPolymyalgia rheumaticaPolymyositisDermatomyositisPolyarteritisVasculitisOphthalmologyUveitisKeratoconjunctivitisOther conditionsMultiple sclerosisOrgan transplantationNephrotic syndromeChronic hepatitis (flare ups)Cerebral edemaIgG4-related diseaseProstate cancerTendinosisLichen planus Topical formulations are also available for the skin, eyes (uveitis), lungs (asthma), nose (rhinitis), and bowels. Corticosteroids are also used supportively to prevent nausea, often in combination with 5-HT3 antagonists (e.g.ondansetron). Typical undesired effects of glucocorticoids present quite uniformly as drug-induced Cushing's syndrome. Typical mineralocorticoid side-effects are hypertension (abnormally high blood pressure), hypokalemia (low potassium levels in the blood), hypernatremia (high sodium levels in the blood) without causing peripheral edema, metabolic alkalosis and connective tissue weakness.[5] Wound healing or ulcer formation may be ibhibited by the immunosuppressive effects. Clinical and experimental evidence indicates that corticosteroids can cause permanent eye damage by inducing central serous retinopathy (CSR, also known as central serous chorioretinopathy, CSC).[6] A variety of steroid medications, from anti-allergy nasal sprays (Nasonex, Flonase) to topical skin creams, to eye drops (Tobradex), to prednisone have been implicated in the development of CSR.[7][8] Corticosteroids have been widely used in treating people with traumatic brain injury.[9] A systematic review identified 20 randomised controlled trials and included 12,303 participants, then compared patients who received corticosteroids with patients who received no treatment. The authors recommended people with traumatic head injury should not be routinely treated with corticosteroids.[10] Use of corticosteroids has numerous side-effects, some of which may be severe: Neuropsychiatric: steroid psychosis,[13] and anxiety,[14] depression. Therapeutic doses may cause a feeling of artificial well-being ("steroid euphoria").[15] The neuropsychiatric effects are partly mediated by sensitization of the body to the actions of adrenaline. Therapeutically, the bulk of corticosteroid dose is given in the morning to mimic the body's diurnal rhythm; if given at night, the feeling of being energized will interfere with sleep. An extensive review is provided by Flores and Gumina.[16]Cardiovascular: Corticosteroids can cause sodium retention through a direct action on the kidney, in a manner analogous to the mineralocorticoid aldosterone. This can result in fluid retention and hypertension.Metabolic: Corticosteroids cause a movement of body fat to the face and torso, resulting respectively in "moon face" and "buffalo hump". and away from the limbs. Due to the diversion of amino-acids to glucose, they are considered anti-anabolic, and long term therapy can cause muscle wasting[17]Endocrine: By increasing the production of glucose from amino-acid breakdown and opposing the action of insulin, corticosteroids can cause hyperglycemia,[18] insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus.[19]Skeletal: Steroid-induced osteoporosis may be a side-effect of long-term corticosteroid use.

10 Ways to Treat Asthma
 
08:44
10 Ways to Treat Asthma 1. Inhalation Corticosteroids These cortisone-like medicines are frequently prescribed by doctors to people struggling with asthma. If they’re used properly, they can significantly reduce the intensity of asthma symptoms, including difficulty breathing and coughing. They’re also designed to help reduce the number and severity of asthma attacks, which can be very dangerous. Of course, inhalation corticosteroids are hardly perfect. According to the Mayo Clinic, corticosteroids won’t stop an asthma attack that has already started – meaning they’re not a great emergency tool. Also, they won’t have a significant impact on asthma symptoms if the patient fails to use them regularly—which in most cases will mean every day (or even several times each day). That can make them problematic for children and people with memory difficulties. 2. Leukotriene Receptor Antagonists Leukotriene receptor antagonists are a non-steroidal oral medication for asthma. Often referred to as LTRAs or anti-inflammatory bronchoconstriction preventors, the Asthma Society of Canada notes that they’re effective because they stop the chemical reaction that can result in significant inflammation of the lungs, thereby making it easier for an asthma patient to breathe. Leukotriene receptor antagonists are rarely the first treatment pursued by doctors following an asthma diagnosis. Typically, physicians will employ an inhaled steroid and, should that fail, may turn to LTRAs. This form of treatment is particularly effective for people who prefer pills over inhalers, which can be difficult to use—particularly for seniors and children. They also have few of the side effects seen with inhaled steroids, though LTRAs are often less effective. 3. Short-Acting Beta Agonists Short-acting beta agonists help reduce tightening of the muscles surrounding the airways by forcing these muscles to relax and widen—resulting in easier breathing for the asthma patient. Currently, there are 2 different kinds of beta agonists on the market: short-acting and long-acting. Short-acting beta agonists can be effective within 5-minutes of being taken, but tend to have an impact for only 4- to 6-hours. Unlike long-acting beta agonists, short-acting beta agonists can be used to have an immediate impact and are ideal for emergencies—like asthma attacks. However, they shouldn’t be used more than once or twice a week 4. Long-Acting Beta Agonists Unlike short-acting beta agonists, Long-acting beta agonists last much longer than 4-to 6-hours—up to 12-hours, in some cases. The American Thoracic Society (ATC) considers long-acting beta agnonists maintenance drugs, which means they must be taken over a longer period in order to be fully effective. Long-acting beta agonists are designed for people with persistent asthma problems—to the point where they are suffering some serious breathing problems on a regular basis and having to use short-acting beta agonists more than a few times each week. Popular long-acting beta agonist products include Advair and Symbicort. Most of these products employ a steroid to help relax the muscles surrounding the airways. 5. Antihistamines Antihistamines can be a useful treatment for asthma. However, it’s important to keep in mind that antihistamines—like Allegra or Benadryl—can come with significant side effects, including drowsiness. In addition, FamilyDoctor.org states that some antihistamines may conflict with other medications, so it’s important every asthma patient consult their doctor before using an antihistamine to treat their condition. Overall, antihistamines are useful when treating infrequent, less intense bouts of asthma. Those people who frequently deal with serious shortness of breath should talk to their physician about a treatment that more directly addresses their condition. 6. Xolair Xolair, which is also known as omalizumab, is an antibody designed to reduce the body’s allergic responses. The drug is most often prescribed to help people deal with severe asthma in adults and children over the age of 12. It won’t help stop an asthma attack and is typically prescribed only after many other medicines have been tried, without success. In other words, Xolair is not for people with mild asthma. In fact, it’s designed for people who have such severe problems with asthma that the condition could be considered life threatening. It’s also important to note that Xolair can have serious side effects. In some cases people have suffered severe allergic reactions right after taking the drug, which is typically injected into the skin and given only once every two to four weeks.

COPDSolution.com, How is COPD Treated?
 
04:51
How is COPD Treated? Being diagnosed with COPD can be moral draining, but it should not be the end of the world. In most cases, people diagnosed with COPD are at the mild stage of the disease. People at this stage can make use of little therapy sessions. Even for the advances stages, the use of effective therapy can help manage symptoms and reduce risk of complications and improve your ability to continue an active life. Treatment options for COPD: The following are some treatment options available for people diagnosed with COPD. Smoking Cessation: The first stem any COPD patient should take is to stop smoking. It is the only way to avoid worsening COPD- which can lead to further lung damage, making it hard to breathe. Quitting smoking is not as easy as it sounds, and if you have tried without success, then consult your doctor for nicotine replacement products and medications that might help, as well as how to handle relapses. You doctor might also suggest support groups for people who want to quit smoking. However, you should also avoid second-hand smoke whenever possible. Medications: There are several types of medications available for COPD. Some may be taken on a regular basis and others as needed. Some available medications for COPD include: Bronchodilators- These medications usually come in an inhaler and they are used to help reduce coughing and shortness of breath, making breathing easier. This medication is of two types- the short-acting bronchodilator which is used before activities and a long-acting bronchodilator that you use every day or both. Inhaled Steroids- The inhaled steroids are used to help in the reduction of airway inflammation and to help prevent exacerbation. However, they come with side effects like bruising, oral infections and hoarseness. Combination Inhalers- These medications combine the properties of both the bronchodilators and the inhaled steroids. Typical example of these medications includes Salmeterol and fluticasone (Advair) and formoterol and budesonide (Symbicort). Oral Steroids: This medication is used for patients who experience severe acute exacerbations. Short courses of this medication help to prevent further worsening of COPD. However, the continuous use of this medication leads to side effects like weight gain, diabetes, osteoporosis, cataracts and an increased risk of infection. Antibiotics- Some respiratory infections like the acute bronchitis, pneumonia and influenza, can worsen COPD symptoms. Antibiotics are very good at treating acute exacerbations, but they aren't generally recommended for prevention. Lung Therapies: This is another treatment option for COPD and it is commonly used for patients with moderate or severe COPD. These therapies include: Oxygen Therapy- This type of therapy helps to provide enough oxygen in the blood, helping to improve quality of life. It is the only COPD therapy proven to extend life. Pulmonary rehabilitation program- This program involves the combination of education, exercise training, nutrition advice and counselling, allowing You to work with a variety of specialists, who can tailor your rehabilitation program to meet your needs. Surgery: This is a treatment option used for patients with severe emphysema and have not experienced success by using medications alone. Surgical options include: • Lung transplant • Lung volume reduction surgery • Bullectomy Despite ongoing treatment, you may experience times when COPD symptoms get worse. This is called exacerbation, and it may lead to lung failure if treatment is not received on time. You doctors may recommend additional medications like antibiotics or steroids. Once symptoms improve, your doctor will talk with you about ways to prevent future exacerbations, such as quitting smoking, taking inhaled steroids, long-acting bronchodilators or other medications, getting your annual flu vaccine, and avoiding air pollution whenever possible.

Hypoxia - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment
 
03:11
Hypoxia and Hypoxemia. When your body doesn't have enough oxygen, you could get hypoxemia or hypoxia. These are dangerous conditions. Without oxygen, your brain, liver, and other organs can be damaged just minutes after symptoms start. Hypoxemia (low oxygen in your blood) can cause hypoxia (low oxygen in your tissues) when your blood doesn't carry enough oxygen to your tissues to meet your body's needs. The word hypoxia is sometimes used to describe both problems. The oxygen deprivation can have severe adverse effects on various body cells that need to perform important biological processes. Subscribe my channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjPGXgOH-anpsvLMiw8NYdA Follow us: https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/118041852373056007310/118041852373056007310 https://web.facebook.com/Health-Tips-Page-1724798314435434/ https://twitter.com/?lang=en Other videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HW0r0QGSvk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMuesRzj22M https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKNqwbfxzyc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KySzN3unQU What causes hypoxia and hypoxemia? The causes of both environmental and tissue hypoxia often result in the intermediate state of hypoxemia; thus the causes of any type of hypoxia are also potential causes of hypoxemia. Some of the many causes of hypoxia are the following: Chemical or gas poisoning (for example cyanide, carbon monoxide). Low or absent concentration of oxygen (for example, high altitudes reached without supplemental oxygen as seen in mountain climbing, and aviation, drowning or fires). Lung problems, for example: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Emphysema. Bronchitis. Pulmonary edema. Lung cancer. Pneumonia. Sleep apnea (nocturnal hypoxemia). Pneumothorax. Asthma. Any medications that reduce or stop the effort for breathing (for example, fentanyl, narcotics). Heart problems (for example, severe bradycardia, ventricular fibrillation). Anemia and/or conditions that destroy red blood cells. Symptoms of hypoxia. Although they can vary from person to person, the most common hypoxia symptoms are: Changes in the color of your skin, ranging from blue to cherry red. Confusion. Cough. Fast heart rate. Rapid breathing. Shortness of breath. Sweating. Wheezing. How It's Treated. You'll need to go to the hospital to get treatment for hypoxia and to keep a check on your oxygen level. The most important thing is to get more oxygen into your body. You'll receive it through a small plug in your nose or through a mask that covers your nose and mouth. For many people, this is enough to bring your oxygen level up to normal. An inhaler or asthma medicine by mouth may make breathing easier. If these don't help, the doctor might try giving you medicine through a vein in your arm (an IV). You might also need steroid drugs for a short time to shrink inflammation in your lungs. When your life is in danger and other treatments aren't working, you may need a machine to help you breathe. Like and share this video. Don't forget to Subscribe my channel for health updates.
