COPD Starts With A Cough

Aug 7th 2014 at 12:25 AM

The main reason for obstruktivnata lung disease is smoking and the only symptom is coughing, which can pass without treatment. But that does not mean that the danger has passed.

Each year, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) kills about 3 million people worldwide-more than have died from breast cancer and diabetes combined.

Like many modern diseases, and this disease is very tricky, because most of the sufferers do not even suspect about her in the early stages. However, it has steadily progressed and subsequently leads to intense Dyspnea-shortness of breath, cough and the release of large amounts of phlegm. The main risk factor for the occurrence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a smoking-in 90 percent of cases, Inc. and passive smoking. In addition to the development of this disease also contribute air pollution, the harmful working conditions, prolonged inhalation of smoke, dust and chemical compounds, as well as frequent lung infections in childhood. Some people are prone to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease because of its heredity.

The only early symptom is nesilna cough or coughing for no apparent reason-for 4-5 days, the cough resolves without treatment.

This first symptom, when still no shortness of breath, or a large quantity of phlegm, is the exact point at which you should seek a doctor.

A test called spirometry, can detect the disease at an earlier stage

Any exacerbation of the disease, i.e. the inflammation, ending with the formation of scar tissue (coalescence). Patient pokašlâl a week or two and forgot, but srastvaneto remains for life. As a result of the treatment, it will not spread, but with quality treatment will not leave such deep marks and to the replacement of lung tissue with scar. Rentgenografiâta of the chest and fluorografiâta do not allow for diagnosis at an early stage. It is established by means of test-spirometry, which determines how deep can breathe the person and how quickly the air can pass through the lungs and out of them.
Ask your doctor to examine the external breathing

Only in the last 10 years, scientists and medics were able to synthesize a group of agents that can help such patients and to interrupt the progression of the disease. These drugs slow down the deterioration of the function of the so-called. external breathing.

The sooner you begin treatment, the better the effect of it and the less is the likelihood of the development of the severe consequences of the respiratory and cardiovascular system.

Every person, even if there are no complaints about health, at least once a year you should examine when his personal doctor and is interested in the status of their external breathing. If you don't love yourself, if you're not interested in their health so there is no prospect for a full and quality of life in the future.
