Asthma Treatment, Symptoms, Pathophysiology, Nursing Interventions NCLEX Review Lecture
 
29:57
Asthma treatment (asthma attack), symptoms, pathophysiology nursing NCLEX review lecture. This lecture will detail the pathophysiology of asthma along with the early warning signs vs active signs of an asthma attack. In addition to a sample asthma action plan along with using a peak flow meter to monitor asthma, asthma triggers, nursing interventions for asthma, and all the medications used to treat asthma, which are bronchodilators and anti-inflammatory medications. What is asthma? Asthma is a chronic lung disease (no cure) that causes narrowing and inflammation of the airways (bronchi and bronchioles) that leads to difficulty breathing. How does it happen? Normally, when you breathe in air, it travels down through your upper airway to your lower airway, which includes the trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli (where gas exchanges happens). The oxygen you breathe in crosses over into your blood stream, and the carbon dioxide in your blood crosses over into the airway to be exhaled. In patients with asthma, the bronchi and bronchioles are chronically inflamed and can become so inflamed that it leads to an asthma attack (wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, coughing), which is usually due to a trigger of some type. Asthma triggers include: -Environment: smoke, pollen, pollution, perfumes, dander, dust mites, pests (cockroaches), cold and dry air, mold -Body Issue: respiratory infection, GERD, hormonal shifts, exercise-induced -Intake of Certain Substances: drugs (beta adrenergic blockers that are nonselective), NSAIDS, aspirin, preservatives (sulfites) Signs and Symptoms of an asthma attack include: chest tightness, wheezing (auscultate…expiratory wheezing and can progress to inspiratory wheezes in severe cases), coughing, difficulty breathing (***especially exhaling), increased respiratory rate Asthma treatment includes: bronchodilators (beta-agonists, anticholinergics, theophylline along with anti-inflammatories (corticosteroids, leukotriene modifiers, immunomodulators, cromolyn).

00:40
A peak flow meter is a portable, inexpensive, hand-held device used to measure how air flows from your lungs in one "fast blast." In other words, the meter measures your ability to push air out of your lungs. A peak flow meter may help you and your healthcare provider identify causes of your asthma at work, home or play. It may help parents to determine what might be triggering their child's asthma. To learn more about asthma and the American Lung Association visit www.lung.org/asthma or call 1-800-LungUSA.

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.

How To Use A Peak Flow Meter
 
02:27
A Peak Flow Meter is a measuring device which enables airflow to be assessed in the lungs. It is particularly useful for monitoring asthma and can form part of a self-management plan. There are a number of different types of Peak Flow Meter but they all work on the same principle. In this episode we show how to correctly use one type of Peak Flow Meter. Asthma is a common condition that can cause variable and intermittent symptoms such as cough, wheezing and breathlessness. A Peak Flow Meter can also provide essential information into the severity of acute asthma attacks. The meters are easy to use and available on prescription in the UK. The readings from a Peak Flow Meter are generally unreliable in children under the age of six or seven. Do not obstruct the cursor with your hand. Do not obstruct the mouthpiece with your tongue. Stand or sit up straight. Check the cursor is set to zero. Take a deep breath in and seal you lips around the mouthpiece. Blow out suddenly and hard. Check the cursor reading. Repeat twice more using the best reading of the three attempts. The meter records the speed of the blow and is measured in litres per minute. Everyone has a predicted reading depending on age and height. It is important that you know your own best reading. This information is helpful for your doctor as well as for you and your own self-management plan. Builth and Llanwrtyd Medical Practice has made every effort to ensure that the information in these episodes is accurate, up to date, and as helpful as possible. However we will not be responsible for any inaccuracies or omissions. In particular if you are unwell, it is important that you do not rely on information from the Internet - you should seek professional medical advice from your Doctor. If your condition is getting worse, or if you are seriously ill, you should call or visit your Surgery.

Crest motion measures how hurried a person breathes out when that person tries his or her hardest. Essentially, it tells a someone how advisable his or her lungs and airways are employed. This is ofttimes rhythmical with a eyeshot current mere, a diminutive analog or digital maneuver that a soul breathes into.

If a tip hemorrhage is rattling superior, then it may be conceivable to shrink the dosage of medications. No changes to Peak Flow Asthma medications should be made without the conference of the theologies. Asthma is a rattling sincere disease that affects zillions of children and adults worldwide.

How do I use a peak flow meter?
 
01:01
What is a peak flow meter? A peak flow meter is a hand-held device that measures your peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR), or how fast you can blow air out of your lungs. Measuring your peak flow regularly can help you tell whether your asthma is getting worse. To use a peak flow meter, you will first need to find out your "personal best" peak flow. Take a deep breath and blow as hard as you can into the mouthpiece. Your personal best is the highest reading you get on the meter over a 2-week period when your asthma is under good control. How do I use a peak flow meter? To use a peak flow meter, follow these steps: Move the indicator to the bottom of the numbered scale.Stand up.Take a deep breath.Close your lips (or have your child close his or her lips) around the mouthpiece of the flow meter. Your tongue should not go inside the tube.Blow out as hard and fast as possible. The indicator on the meter will move up. Write down the number where it stops. Repeat steps 1 through 5 two more times. Write down the highest of the three numbers on the peak flow meter record chart.

Asthma is the common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and bronchospasm.Symptoms include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. Asthma is clinically classified according to the frequency of symptoms, forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1), and peak expiratory flow rate. Asthma may also be classified as atopic (extrinsic) or non-atopic
