[list][*]People with normal lungs and adequate immune defenses usually recover fully.[*]However, pneumonia is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.[/list]

[size=large][b]What Causes It?[/b][/size][hr]Pneumonia can be caused by a virus, bacterium, fungus, protozoa, mycobacterium, mycoplasma, or rickettsia. Certain factors can predispose a person to bacterial and viral pneumonia-chronic illness and debilitation, cancer (especially lung cancer), abdominal or chest surgery, atelectasis (the collapse of air sacs in the lung), the flu, common colds or other viral respiratory infections, chronic respiratory disease (such a, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma, bronchiectasis, or cystic fibrosis), smoking, malnutrition, alcoholism, sickle cell disease, tracheostomy, exposure to harmful gases, aspiration, and drugs that suppress the immune system. We were furnished with so many points to include while writing about Emphysema Chronic Bronchitis Asthma that we were actually lost as to which to use and which to discard!

[size=large][b]How is It Diagnosed?[/b][/size][hr]The doctor suspects pneumonia if the person has typical symptoms and physical exam results, along with a chest X-ray showing pulmonary infiltrates (abnormal substances in the lungs), and sputum containing acute inflammatory cells. If the person has pleural effusions, the doctor withdraws some fluid from the chest to analyze for signs of infection. Occasionally, the doctor obtains a sample of respiratory airway secretions or inserts an instrument called a bronchoscope into the airway to obtain materials for smear and culture. The person's response to antibiotics also provides important dues to the presence of pneumonia. Writing an article on Bronchitis Emphysema was our foremost priority while thinking of a topic to write on. This is because Bronchitis Emphysema are interesting parts of our lives, and are needed by us. Smile

Factors that predispose a person to aspiration pneumonia include old age, debilitation, nasogastric tube feedings, an impaired gag reflex, poor oral hygiene, and a decreased level of consciousness. There is a lot of jargon connected with Chronic Bronchitis Asthma. However, we have eliminated the difficult ones, and only used the ones understood by everyone.

[size=large][b]What are Its Symptoms?[/b][/size][hr]In the early stage, a person with bacterial pneumonia may have these classic symptoms - coughing, sputum production, chest pain, shaking, chills, and fever. Remember that it is very important to have a disciplined mode of writing when writing.

Quote:Acute bronchitis is a very common respiratory disease that generates symptoms such as mucus-producing cough, chest discomfort and pain, difficult and shallow breathing, wheezing and fever. One of the most commonly diagnosed respiratory diseases in the United States, acute bronchitis is responsible for causing an estimated 2.5 million new cases of breathing insufficiency each year. Although it has the highest incidence in people with ages over 50, acute bronchitis can be seen in young adults and children as well.

Acute bronchitis refers to inflammation of the bronchial mucosal membranes, triggered by various external irritant or infectious agents. Due to prolonged exposure to irritants, pollutants or due to infection with viruses or bacteria, the bronchial region becomes inflamed, resulting in overproduction and expectoration of mucus. Mucus is a substance produced by the soft tissues and membranes involved in breathing. It has a very important role in protecting the respiratory tract against irritants and infectious organisms. However, in the case of acute bronchitis, overproduction of mucus is an inflammatory reaction of the respiratory tract due to irritation of the bronchia. An excessive production of mucus leads to obstruction of the airways, causing wheezing and shallow, accelerated, difficult breathing. The more you read about Bronchial Infection, the more you get to understand the meaning of it. So if you read this article and other related articles, you are sure to get the required amount of matter for yourself.

Acute bronchitis can also be the consequence of bacterial infections. Common bacterial agents responsible for causing acute bronchitis are: Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Bordatella pertussis, Bordatella parapertussis and Branhamella catarrhalis. In some cases, the disease can also be triggered by mycoplasmas, infectious organisms that share the characteristics of both viruses and bacteria. When acute bronchitis is caused by infection with mycoplasmas, the disease is usually severe, has a rapid onset and generates very pronounced symptoms. Some forms of mycoplasma bronchitis can even be life-threatening. Common atypical bacterial agents (mycoplasmas) responsible for causing acute bronchitis are: Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydia pneumoniae and Legionella.

There is a wide range of factors that can lead to the occurrence of acute bronchitis. The most common cause of acute bronchitis is infection with viruses. The viral organisms responsible for triggering the manifestations of acute bronchitis are: adenovirus, influenza virus, parainfluenza virus, coronavirus, coxsackievirus, enterovirus, rhinovirus and respiratory syncytial virus. Commonly developed by children, viral forms of acute bronchitis are usually less serious and generate milder symptoms (mild to moderate fever, non-severe cough and less pronounced obstruction of the airways).

Sometimes, acute bronchitis can also be caused by infection with fungal organisms such as Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis, Blastomyces dermatitidis, Histoplasma capsulatum and Coccidioides immitis. When acute bronchitis is the result of bronchial infection with fungal elements, the disease is generally less serious and generates mild to moderate symptoms. Isn't it wonderful that we can now access information about anything, including Bronchitis Infection form the Internet without the hassle of going through books and magazines for matter!

Non-infectious factors that can lead to the occurrence of acute bronchitis are: dust, pollen, chemicals, pollutants, cigarette smoke, substances with strong, irritant odor (alcohol, paints, benzene). When acute bronchitis is solely the result of exposure to non-infectious irritant agents, the disease is usually less severe and generates mild to moderate symptoms. In this case, the medical treatment is focused towards alleviating the clinical manifestations of the disease. Patients are usually prescribed bronchodilators or cough suppressants for decongestion of the airways and rapid symptomatic relief. When doing an assignment on Acute Bronchitis, it is always better to look up and use matter like the one given here. Your assignment turns out to be more interesting and colorful this way.

[size=large][b]Basics of Bronchitis[/b][/size][hr]Bronchitis is a condition in which viral or bacterial infection leads to inflammation of the respiratory tract. However, bacteria and virus are not always responsible for this condition. Continuous exposure to highly polluted atmospheres or a lifestyle trait such as heavy smoking renders the immune system so weak that the body becomes an ideal place for bacterial or viral infection. Developing a gradual interest in Bronchitis Condition was the basis for writing this article. On reading this, you will gradually get interested in Bronchitis Condition. Smile

Quote:Bronchitis (pronounced brong-KIE-tis) is an inflammation of the air passages between the nose and the lungs. It affects the trachea (pronounced TRAY-kee-uh), or windpipe, and the bronchi. The bronchi (pronounced BRON-kee) are air tubes through which air flows into and out of the lungs.

[list][*]Medicines called mucolytics which thin or loosen mucus in the airways, making it easier to cough up can also be used to treat chronic bronchitis.[*]Persistent Cough proved to be the foundation for the writing of this page.[*]We have used all facts and definitions of Persistent Cough to produce worthwhile reading material for you.[/list]

Symptoms Infectious bronchitis generally begins with the symptoms of a common cold: runny nose, sore throat, fatigue, chilliness, and back and muscle aches. A slight fever (100 to 101 F) may be present. The onset of cough (usually dry at first) signals the beginning of acute bronchitis. With viral bronchitis, small amounts of white mucus are often coughed up. When the coughed-up mucus changes from white to green or yellow, the condition may have been complicated by a bacterial infection.

This is because your bronchial tree is already damaged. You may be filled with astonishment with the amount of information we have compile here on Types Bronchitis. that was our intention, to astonish you.

Chronic bronchitis is a condition involving the inflammation of the main airways (bronchial tubes) in the lungs that continues for a long period or keeps recurring. When the airways are irritated, thick mucus (also called sputum) forms in them. The mucus plugs up the airways and makes it hard to get air into the lungs, leading to shortness of breath and persistent cough. Our objective of this article on Persistent Cough was to arouse your interest in it. Bring back the acquired knowledge of Persistent Cough, and compare it with what we have printed here.

[size=large][b]Causes of Bronchitis[/b][/size][hr]Bronchitis is mainly caused due to certain germs, the susceptibility of certain constitutions cannot be denied.

[size=large][b]Lobelia is Considered a Potentially Toxic Herb[/b][/size][hr]Special care is advised when using it. Signs of lobelia poisoning may include weakness, heartburn, weak pulse, difficulty breathing, and collapse. People with high blood pressure, heart disease, tobacco sensitivity, paralysis, and seizure disorder should not take lobelia. Lobelia is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Lobelia can be an aggressive emetic, even in relatively small doses if the system is highly toxic. The resulting nausea and vomiting, though unpleasant, will be beneficial to the patient. Bronchitis are versatile as they are found in all parts and walks of life. It all depends on the way you take it.

Lobelia consists of various alkaloids, a bitter glycoside (lobelacrin), a pungent volatile oil (lobelianin), resin, gum, chelidonic acid and fats. The alkaloid lobeline is its main ingredient and namesake. Others include lobelidine, lobelanine, nor-lobelaine, lobelanidine, nor-lobelanidine, and isolobenine, as well as fourteen pyridine alkaloids. There is a wild oregano oil knowledge connected with Bronchitis. What is included here can be considered a fraction of this knowledge!

[list][*]Lobelia is available for internal use as a dried herb, in a liquid extract form, and as tinctures.[*]Externally, it is available in ointments, lotions, suppositories, and plasters.[*]You can make a tea by mixing 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of the dried herb with eight ounces of water.[*]Then let it steep for 30 to 40 minutes.[*]Take two ounces of this four times a day but, be warned, many think it tastes awful![*]Take .6 to 2 ml of the tincture each day.[*]This is based on a 150 pound adult.[*]Adjust dosage for children proportionately.[*]Lobeline works much like nicotine in its effect on the central nervous system but without the addictive properties.[*]In fact, it is a main ingredient of many quit smoking treatments.[*]Lobeline acts as a relaxant overall and is used to treat spastic colon and muscle problems.[*]It also dilates the bronchioles, thereby increasing respiration and helping the lungs.[*]Bronchitis Pneumonia play a prominent part in this composition.[*]It is with this prominence that we hope people get to know more about Bronchitis Pneumonia.[/list]

Lobelia's main use is in treating respiratory problems like bronchitis and pneumonia. It stimulates the adrenal glands to release the hormone epinephrine, which causes the airways to relax. Lobelia is a strong relaxant and clears obstructions. It relaxes the stomach (a common problem in asthmatic children) as it dilates the bronchial passages. In fact, many people have used it to stop asthma attacks in place of inhalants. There are many varieties of Bronchitis found today. However, we have stuck to the description of only one variety to prevent confusion! Wink

[size=large][b]Use Lobelia to Treat Laryngitis in Children and for Barking Coughs[/b][/size][hr]Ellingwood recommended lobelia for the following pathologies: "spasmodic asthma, spasmodic croup, membranous croup, infantile convulsions, whooping cough, puerperal eclampsia, epilepsy, tetanus, hysterical paraxysms, diphtheria, hysterical convulsions, tonsillitis, pneumonia," among others.

[size=large][b]Ginseng is Known as an Adaptogenic Herb[/b][/size][hr]An adaptogen is an herb that regulates and helps the body handle stress and maintain vitality. Adaptogens are used for long term revitalization and not for immediate energy like central nervous system stimulants such as caffeine.

[list][*]Use Siberian Ginseng in my 'Old Dog Formula' to increase the circulation to the butt muscles and lower spine.[*]I once had a client who came in regularly for Old Dog Formula for their two very aged shelties.[*]I noticed that they came in a bit more regularly than they should for the dosage I had recommended.[*]When I asked them about it, they confessed that they were also using the product with fabulous results.[*]I like it too and use it occasionally for gardening season.[*]We hope you develop a better understanding of Bronchitis on completion of this article on Bronchitis.[*]Only if the article is understood is it's benefit reached.

Saying that all that is written here is all there is on Bronchitis would be an understatement. Very much more has to be learnt and propagated bout Bronchitis.

Wild Ginseng, from Manchuria, is considered the best, but is extremely expensive. For centuries in the East, top-grade Ginseng roots have been valued more than gold. The title of this composition could be rightly be Bronchial Infections. This is because what is mentioned here is mostly about Bronchial Infections.

Panax Ginseng, (Also known as Asian Ginseng, Korean Ginseng, Chinese Ginseng, Ren Shen, Xi Yang Shen, or Say Yang Sum), grown in Korea is the broadest spectrum of all adaptogenic herbs. It is also considered one of the most prized and expensive herbs. Panax ginseng stimulates both long and short-term energy, so is know as a yang tonic replenishing Qi (energy.) As you progress deeper and deeper into this composition on Bronchitis, you are sure to unearth more information on Bronchitis. The information becomes more interesting as the deeper you venture into the composition.

[list][*]Contraindications: Panax, meaning panacea, is NOT universally applicable in every illness like its name implies.[*]Yang Ginsengs should not be taken during acute inflammatory disease or for bronchitis.[*]Use the yin American Ginseng for bronchitis.[*]The yang Ginsengs are used in combination with other herbs to temper their powerful nature.[/list]

[size=large][b]Panax is Rich in Phyto-Hormones for Both Men and Women's Problems[/b][/size][hr]For men it helps in the formation of testosterone and for women it protects against breast cancer, hence the term adaptogenic (it will adapt to the needs of the body no matter what is needed and no matter what sex.) For this reason, Panax also fits into the aphrodisiac category. Panax Ginseng is used for enhancing the immune system, impotence and premature ejaculation, poor sleep and nervous exhaustion. It is especially useful for older bodies with debilitating conditions.

Panax notoginseng (Also known as Pseudoginseng or San Qi) is grown in China and is used as an analgesic and to stop internal and external bleeding. It is also added to treatments for coronary heart disease and angina. Quite interestingly, San Qi was used extensively by the North Vietnamese during the Vietnam War to increase recovery rates from gunshot wounds. Avoid this one during pregnancy.

However, it is up to us to decide the way used for these applications to get the best results from them.

American Ginseng (Also called Panax quinquefolius, Xi Yan Shen) is a yin tonic. Yin tonics are cooling and slowing in nature. American Ginseng is used in China for fevers and for exhaustion due to chronic wasting diseases. It is also used for coughs related to lung weaknesses (such as tuberculosis, bronchial infections or asthma.) What we have written here about Bronchial Infections can be considered to be a unique composition on Bronchial Infections. Let's hope you appreciate it being unique. Smile

[size=large][b]Ginseng is Grown in Many Parts of the World[/b][/size][hr]The roots are the part of the plant used for all Ginseng products. Each variety has its own health benefits. Ginseng benefits are cumulative. Taking the herb for several months to a year is far more effective than short-term doses. Ginsengs are used in many Eastern formulas to complement other herbs.
