Bronchial Infections - Progress of Chronic Diseases is Reflected in Stress-Free Breath Holding Time and Body Oxygenation
Poor tissue oxygenation is the typical feature for people with asthma, heart disease, chronic fatigue, diabetes, bronchitis, cancer, HIV, acne, infertility, and many other disorders. This is known to medical professionals, but you may guess about this fact too. Why?

Have you seen how asthmatics frantically gasp for more oxygen during asthma attacks? Indeed, it is normal that these and other COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) patients are the first candidates to breathe pure oxygen 24/7 to save their lives.

For the first time in the history of medicine, a group of about 200 doctors, after studying and curing thousands of patients, suggested the standard for ideal health (60 s of oxygen) that provide guarantee from such chronic conditions as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, COPD, arthritis, and many others. Keeping to the point is very important when writing. So we have to stuck to Bronchitis Conditions, and have not wandered much from it to enhance understanding. Smile

10 S of Oxygen
Severely sick, critically and terminally ill patients, usually hospitalized. 10-20 s - sick patients with numerous complaints and, often, on daily medication. We have used a mixture of seriousness and jokes in this composition on Bronchitis. This is to liven the mood when reading about Bronchitis. Big Grin.

Finally, Cancer Has Cellular Hypoxia as Its Key Cause
Nobel Laureate, Dr. Otto Warburg, in his article "The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer", published in 1966, wrote, "Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. Almost anything can cause cancer. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. The prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen (oxidation of sugar) in normal body cells by fermentation of sugar..." It is always better to use simple English when writing descriptive articles, like this one on Bronchitis Conditions. It is the layman who may read such articles, and if he can't understand it, what is the point of writing it?

This test became the main measuring tool for about 200 medical professionals who taught the Buteyko self-oxygenation therapy to hundreds thousands of Russian patients with asthma, heart disease, bronchitis, and other conditions. The Buteyko method has over 40 year history of clinical use in the USSR and Russia.

High level of blood lactate (a sign of anaerobic metabolism) is among main features for diabetes, chronic fatigue, bronchitis and many other conditions. To err is human, to forgive is divine. So we would indeed deem you to be divine if you forgive us for any misunderstandings that may arise in this article on Diabetes Bronchitis.

Quote:You may know that the main test for heart patients (exercise electrocardiogram or Stress test) mainly reflects oxygenation of the heart and other muscles of the human body. No wonder, that agent 007, in the most recent movie "Casino Roayle", when he had a heart attack, also had very heavy breathing.

More information about translated original Russian and Western research on breathing, health, how to improve one's oxygenation, and the Buteyko method can be found on my website http://www.normalbreathing.com

After your usual exhale, pinch your nose and count your BHT (breath holding time) in seconds. Keep nose pinched until you experience the first desire to breathe. Practice shows that this first desire appears together with an involuntary push of the diaphragm or swallowing movement in the throat. (Your body warns you, "Enough!") If you release the nose and start breathing at this time, you can resume your usual breathing pattern (in the same way as you were breathing prior to the test). Do not extend breath holding too long. This is the most common mistake. You should not gasp for air or open your mouth when you release your nose. The test should be easy and not cause you any stress. The BHT test does not interfere with your usual breathing. Interesting is what we had aimed to make this article on Diabetes Bronchitis. It is up to you to decide if we have succeeded in our mission!

These doctors refined the Buteyko oxygenation therapy and revealed numerous factors that improve our health (physical exercise with strictly nasal breathing; good posture; raw diets; cold shower; sleeping on hard surfaces; bare foot walking; prevention of mouth breathing, overeating, and sleeping on one's back, etc.)
  • 40 s of oxygen - people with poor health, but often without serious organic problems. 40-60 s - good health.
  • Over 60 s of oxygen - ideal health, when many modern diseases are virtually impossible.

Typical Results for the Oxygenation Test
The first chapter of my book "Normal breathing: the key to vital health" is available on-line (http://www.normalbreathing.com/big-book-Ch html). It has a table with dozens of western medical references devoted to stress-free breath holding time. Russian oxygenation doctors accumulated even more clinical information. Doctor Buteyko and his medical colleagues found that the following relationships generally hold true:

Seems that Everyone I Know is Sick
Everyone I know has a bad cough. This got me thinking to the last time I had a really bad cough that I could not shake. I just kept taking over the counter drugs, hoping it would get better and it did not. I was having bouts of coughing and breathlessness and had to stop what I was doing so I could recover. Usually this meant if I was jogging or working out, I had to sit down and take a break. And if you are anything like I am, this is a huge thing to do. Wink

For Both Types of Bronchitis, the Major Symptoms Include:
Coughing, Mucus, having shortness of breath, feeling tired, wheezing, having difficulty breathing during physical activity. We have omitted irrelevant information from this composition on Types Bronchitis as we though that unnecessary information may make the reader bored of reading the composition.

Finally Went to the Doctor and He Explained to Me that I Had Bronchitis
I was wondering how I had gotten bronchitis. And he explained that it was a viral infection that I probably picked up somewhere or from someone. The many pollutants in the air can carry it. There are two types of bronchitis. One is acute and the other is chronic. Acute bronchitis usually lasts for a few weeks, while chronic bronchitis happens frequently for several years. In simplest terms, bronchitis is just an inflammation in your bronchial tubes or the tubes that carry oxygen to your lungs.


Respiratory Infections

Even if you feel that the symptoms that you are experiencing may not be bronchitis, be sure to see your Doctor as soon as possible, as it may be another infection in your lungs. The coughing and breathlessness is cause for concern. The coughing bouts I would have were very strong and would cause me to have to take a break from what ever I was doing. If I was at work I would have to take a quick time out. It is not any fun when you are not able to breathe. Bronchitis can hamper a lot of your daily activities and the sooner you get it checked out the better.
  • Your symptoms do not clear up, your doctor may prescribe something for you to help open your airway.
  • If you have chronic bronchitis, your Doctor will speak more to you about it and will prescribe some form of treatment for it.
  • Chronic bronchitis can usually be found in smokers.
  • The smoking causes the symptoms to be worse and the treatment for it will probably include quitting smoking.
  • We take pride in saying that this article on Acute Bronchitis is like a jewel of our articles.
  • This article has been accepted by the general public as a most informative article on Acute Bronchitis.
  • After a respiratory infection such as a cold or influenza can appear the inflammation of the bronchi of the lungs.
  • This phenomenon describes a disease called Bronchitis.
  • It develops with a persistent cough that produces high quantities of sputum.
  • The symptoms lasts for almost ten days without any side effects in most people.
  • But there is also the chance to become a chronic disease and then the symptoms last for more than three months. Smile

Speaking about expectorant properties, there is another herb having this property and it is called mullien. It helps soothe the throat and stop the muscle spasms that trigger coughs. Mixed with a special oil, vegetable or massage oil, this herb can be used for the massage of the chest and it helps to break up the congestion in the lungs. Vitamins A and C are also recommended for the treatment of the Bronchitiss. They reduce the inflammation of the bronchial tubes. Penetration into the world of Asthmatic Bronchitis proved to be our idea in this article. Read the article and see if we have succeeded in this or not! :o.

Another sort of tea which can cure Bronchitis is the one prepared from a herb called creosote bush or pleurisy root. It can also be used in any other respiratory problems because it is very efficient for the evacuation of mucus. An herb called coltsfoot has also expectorant properties by stimulating the movement of the cilia which move the mucus out of the airways and suppresses production of a protein that triggers spasms in the bronchus.
  • Regarding the natural treatment recommended in Bronchitis, aroma therapy is one of the best choices.
  • It involves inhaling special oils, like eucalyptus oil.
  • This provides some relief from the inflamed lungs.
  • To break up the congestion and get quicker relief, it is very good to use Cayenne pepper.
  • If you suffer from Bronchitis you can also use as a natural remedy, garlic and ginger by mixing both and preparing a sort of a tea.

The agents that cause Bronchitis are in most of the cases viruses such as coronarvirus, adenovirus or a rhinovirus. These viruses attack the lining of the bronchial tree. As a response to the infection caused by the virus the body starts fighting against it and the glands produce more mucus which is very hard to evacuate. But the viruses are not the only agents that can produce Bronchitis. It was showed that fungi and bacteria are responsible of Bronchitis too. Smile

The term "bronchitis" is derived from two Greek words "bronchos" and "itis," which mean "windpipe" and "inflammation," respectively. True to its name, bronchitis is a respiratory disorder characterized by inflammation of the windpipe and the large and small bronchi due to bacterial or viral infection or factors such as environmental pollution or cigarette smoking.

Chronic bronchitis is the more lethal of the common causes of bronchitis, that is, acute and chronic bronchitis. While acute bronchitis lasts for a short time and is chiefly caused by bacterial or viral infection, chronic bronchitis lasts much longer. It is also considered to be one of the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a group of respiratory diseases commonly characterized by abnormal breathing patterns.

Computed Tomography or CT Scan is a medical technique that combines x-ray and computer technology to obtain a comprehensive image of different parts of the human body. As you progress deeper and deeper into this composition on Bronchitis Respiratory, you are sure to unearth more information on Bronchitis Respiratory. The information becomes more interesting as the deeper you venture into the composition.

Chronic bronchitis is accompanied by abnormal signs in the lungs, edema of the feet, coronary failure, and a bluish tinge on the skin and around the lips. The symptoms disappear with the passage of time and are usually followed by the development of abnormal breathing patterns. There are universal applications on Bronchitis Acute Bronchitis everywhere. However, it is up to us to decide the way used for these applications to get the best results from them.
  • Chronic bronchitis usually lasts throughout life, and treatment is taken only to alleviate its distressing symptoms.
  • In spite of this, the patient can live a comfortable, productive life by properly managing the symptoms of this disease.
  • The disorder, though incurable, is controllable.

Due to Dyspnea, Even the Slightest Exertion Will be Exhausting for the Person
As chronic bronchitis progresses, patients experience difficulties in breathing even when they are taking rest. At this stage, patients become more susceptible to infections of all types and to respiratory insufficiencies, which pave the way for the terminal event of chronic bronchitis, acute respiratory failure. Saying that all that is written here is all there is on Bronchitis Patient would be an understatement. Very much more has to be learnt and propagated bout Bronchitis Patient.

Recognizing Chronic Bronchitis
If the patient coughs and expels sputum for about three months in a year for two consecutive years, the patient might be suffering from chronic bronchitis. Chronic bronchitis is also characterized by excessive production of mucus, cough, and dysnea, or difficulties in breathing while exerting oneself physically. Smile
  • Dyspnea, characterised by labored breathing, interferes a lot with the sufferers' daily routine.
  • It turns out that breathing takes up all of a person's energy.
  • Subsequently, the patients loses a lot of weight because even the normal process of eating involves a major expenditure of energy.
  • What we have written here about Bronchitis Patient can be considered to be a unique composition on Bronchitis Patient.
  • Let's hope you appreciate it being unique.

Arterial Blood Gas (ABG) is the name of a blood test to ascertain the capacity of the lungs to supply oxygen to the body and to eliminate carbon-di-oxide from it. In addition, it helps measure the acid content of the blood. We hope you develop a better understanding of Bronchitis Treatment on completion of this article on Bronchitis Treatment. Only if the article is understood is it's benefit reached. Wink

Pulse Oximetry is a Small Apparatus that Measures the Oxygen Content in the Blood
Chest x-rays are a common diagnostic tool to view pictures of the internal conditions of organs, tissues, and bones. We do hope that you find the information here something worth recommending others to read and think about once you complete reading all there is about Acute Bronchitis.

These symptoms might be similar to the symptoms of other respiratory disorders, which is why patients must never try to diagnose the condition on their own. Consulting a doctor is of utmost importance. It is possible to mistake chronic bronchitis for other respiratory disorders such as asthma, sinusitis, tuberculosis, pulmonary emphysema, and so on. The title of this composition could be rightly be Bronchitis. This is because what is mentioned here is mostly about Bronchitis.

Pulmonary function tests are done to calculate the capacity of the lungs to exchange oxygen for carbon-di-oxide. In order to conduct pulmonary function tests, doctors use peak flow monitoring (PFM) and spirometry. Spirometry is a medical tool used to determine and understand the working of the lungs while PFM is used to determine the maximum speed with which a person can exhale or inhale. PFM also assesses the ways in which the malady can be controlled.
