Proving Disability Due to C-O-P-D, Asthma or Other Respiratory Disease
 
02:54
It’s a fact, most Social Security applications are denied the first time around. One of the best ways to reduce the chance of a denial is to have your medical condition well documented. If you suffer from C-O-P-D, asthma or another respiratory disease that prevents you from being able to work, ask your health care provider about laboratory tests that can help prove the extent of your disability. Here are some of the tests available to people with severe respiratory issues: The Pulmonary Function Test measures your lung capacity, strength, and breathing ability under normal conditions and after you use your regular inhaled treatments. Nearly all patients with a severe form of asthma have had to undergo a pulmonary function test at one time or another. Another type of test is the Arterial Blood Gas Test. This is a way of measuring the acidity of your blood, as well as your oxygen and carbon dioxide levels. It gives a reading of how well your lungs can transmit oxygen and remove carbon dioxide as blood passes through them. In an A-B-G test, blood is drawn from an artery, allowing oxygen and carbon dioxide levels to be measured before they are absorbed into the body tissues. A-B-G tests may be performed at rest, standing, walking, or during heavy exercise. In cases where extreme exertion triggers an attack or worsens a breathing condition, patients may submit to a controlled exercise test. This measures lost lung capacity during increased activity that might not be evident at rest … such as in cases of chronic pulmonary disease. If you have C-O-P-D, asthma or another respiratory condition, let your doctor know that you are applying for Social Security disability and ask about whether or not one of these tests would be helpful for your treatment and your disability application. Social Security listings for pulmonary disorders are difficult to meet but individuals who don’t meet the listing level of severity may still qualify on the basis of their limitations. Ask your doctor if your breathing problems limit your ability to perform your past work or limits your ability to walk for long periods or distances. Finally, if you are smoking stop! If you would like a free evaluation of your disability case, give us a call. At Cuddigan Law you have a dedicated team of professionals in your corner who understand the system and who will fight for your rights.

Spirometry Test Diagnose Lung Disease - Manipal Hospitals
 
03:32
This video is an informative animated presentation that explains in detail about Spirometry. Spirometry is a test of how well your lungs are working by measuring how fast and how much you can breathe in and out. Normally as you breathe in or inhale, air moves freely through your trachea then through bronchi and then into bronchioles, and finally into tiny sacs called alveoli. Your doctor may recommend a spirometry test to identify a disease in your lungs, check the severity up your existing lung disease or to determine if the medications are helping. During the test your care giver will use a device called a spirometer. A spirometer is a machine that measures the air you breathe out. You will need to perform the spirometry test correctly three times to get accurate results. Watch the video to know more in details about Spirometry.

ASTHMA SYMPTOMS , DIAGNOSIS
 
02:19
ASTHMA OVERVIEW Asthma is a chronic disease involving the airways in the lungs. These airways, or bronchial tubes, allow air to come in and out of the lungs. If you have asthma your airways are always inflamed. They become even more swollen and the muscles around the airways can tighten when something triggers your symptoms. This makes it difficult for air to move in and out of the lungs, causing symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and/or chest tightness. For many asthma sufferers, timing of these symptoms is closely related to physical activity. And, some otherwise healthy people can develop asthma symptoms only when exercising. This is called exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB), or exercise-induced asthma (EIA). Staying active is an important way to stay healthy, so asthma shouldn't keep you on the sidelines. Your physician can develop a management plan to keep your symptoms under control before, during and after physical activity. People with a family history of allergies or asthma are more prone to developing asthma. Many people with asthma also have allergies. This is called allergic asthma. Occupational asthma is caused by inhaling fumes, gases, dust or other potentially harmful substances while on the job. Childhood asthma impacts millions of children and their families. In fact, the majority of children who develop asthma do so before the age of five. There is no cure for asthma, but once it is properly diagnosed and a treatment plan is in place you will be able to manage your condition, and your quality of life will improve. An allergist / immunologist is the best qualified physician in diagnosing and treating asthma. With the help of your allergist, you can take control of your condition and participate in normal activities. ASTHMA SYMPTOMS & DIAGNOSIS Asthma Symptoms According to the leading experts in asthma, the symptoms of asthma and best treatment for you or your child may be quite different than for someone else with asthma. The most common symptom is wheezing. This is a scratchy or whistling sound when you breathe. Other symptoms include: •    Shortness of breath •    Chest tightness or pain •    Chronic coughing •    Trouble sleeping due to coughing or wheezing Asthma symptoms, also called asthma flare-ups or asthma attacks, are often caused by allergies and exposure to allergens such as pet dander, dust mites, pollen or mold. Non-allergic triggers include smoke, pollution or cold air or changes in weather. Asthma symptoms may be worse during exercise, when you have a cold or during times of high stress. Children with asthma may show the same symptoms as adults with asthma: coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. In some children chronic cough may be the only symptom. If your child has one or more of these common symptoms, make an appointment with an allergist / immunologist: •    Coughing that is constant or that is made worse by viral infections, happens while your child is asleep, or is triggered by exercise and cold air •    Wheezing or whistling sound when your child exhales •    Shortness of breath or rapid breathing, which may be associated with exercise •    Chest tightness (a young child may say that his chest “hurts” or “feels funny”) •    Fatigue (your child may slow down or stop playing) •    Problems feeding or grunting during feeding (infants) •    Avoiding sports or social activities •    Problems sleeping due to coughing or difficulty breathing Patterns in asthma symptoms are important and can help your doctor make a diagnosis. Pay attention to when symptoms occur: •    At night or early morning •    During or after exercise •    During certain seasons •    After laughing or crying •    When exposed to common asthma triggers Asthma Diagnosis An allergist diagnoses asthma by taking a thorough medical history and performing breathing tests to measure how well your lungs work. One of these tests is called spirometry. You will take a deep breath and blow into a sensor to measure the amount of air your lungs can hold and the speed of the air you inhale or exhale. This test diagnoses asthma severity and measures how well treatment is working. Many people with asthma also have allergies, so your doctor may perform allergy testing. Treating the underlying allergic triggers for your asthma will help you avoid asthma symptoms. ASTHMA TREATMENT & MANAGEMENT There is no cure for asthma, but symptoms can be controlled with effective asthma treatment and management. This involves taking your medications as directed and learning to avoid triggers that cause your asthma symptoms. Your allergist will prescribe the best medications for your condition and provide you with specific instructions for using them. Controller medications are taken daily and include inhaled corticosteroids (fluticasone (Flovent Diskus, Flovent HFA), budesonide (Pulmicort Flexhaler), mometasone (Asmanex), ciclesonide (Alvesco), flunisolide (Aerobid), beclomethasone (Qvar) and others).

Asthma and COPD
 
07:59
COPD stands for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This is chronic asthma. Chronic means it progresses slowly while obstructive means that it causes narrowing of the airways in the lungs making it more difficult to breath. Pulmonary disease means that the condition affects the lungs. Therefore , asthma COPD is a diseases that progress slowly in the airways, narrowing them. Thus no air can move in or out of the lungs. Breathing becomes more and more difficult. http://helines.com/

For more information about the many benefits of the Midmark IQspiro®, call 1-800-MIDMARK or visit http://www.midmark.com. Asthma is a leading chronic illness among children and adolescents in the United States. According to the American Lung Association, asthma currently affects close to 7.1 million children and is the most common cause of school absences due to a chronic disease. In 2011, 12.7 million adults were estimated to have COPD, with close to 24 million showing evidence of impaired lung function, indicating an under diagnosis of COPD. And, according to the American Thoracic Society, COPD is expected to increase globally in the coming decades. Early detection is important. Midmark can help. Office spirometry is a valuable tool in the diagnosis and evaluation of patients with respiratory symptoms. It can help providers diagnose or exclude conditions like asthma [pause] and COPD and determine the disease stage of the patient.

How Science Works KS3: Asthma on the Run
 
13:48
A look into the research of biochemist Ceri Harrop, who specialises in respiratory medicine and developing new treatments for people with breathing difficulties. Download videos and extensive curriculum and CPD resources at http://www.acoustics.salford.ac.uk/schools/ As part of her research at the University of Manchester, Ceri meets with athlete Wayne Ashall, a 400m runner and hopeful for the 2012 Olympics, despite having asthma. Wayne's personal best is only seconds off the world record, and he's hoping Ceri's work will help him perform even better. Ceri and Wayne carry out a spirometry test, a common test to diagnose lung conditions, and Ceri dissects a set of animal lungs to explain how they work and the effects asthma has on them. Medication plays a big part in enabling Wayne to compete, so Ceri takes Wayne through the different aspects of her research, which may lead to new treatments and possibly even a cure for asthma.

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.

Incentive spirometry in Hindi || Spirometry in Hindi | spirometer OSCE guide in Hindi What is Incentive Spirometry Spirometry (meaning the measuring of breath) is the most common of the pulmonary function tests (PFTs). It measures lung function, specifically the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled. Spirometry is helpful in assessing breathing patterns that identify conditions such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, and COPD. It is also helpful as part of a system of health surveillance, in which breathing patterns are measured over time.[1] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ About Techhealth Social media Links Join us on Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/techhealth99 Subscribe our channel Here https://www.youtube.com/techhealth Take a look on Twitter Techhealth https://twitter.com/Techhealth99 Follow on Instagram www.instagram.com/techhealth99 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ About Owner Of Health Tips Dr Rabnawaz Khan www.facebook.com/RabnawazKhan99 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Three way Foley catheter irrigation in Hindi |three way Foley's catheter insertion procedure" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptTudmXVX0k -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- #techhealth

Living With and Managing Asthma
 
04:28
This video—presented by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health—describes asthma, its signs and symptoms, and ways to manage the disease. Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways, making it hard to breathe. The disease affects people of all ages, but it most often starts in childhood. People who have asthma may wheeze, cough, feel short of breath, or have chest tightness. Asthma can't be cured, but it can be controlled. People who have asthma, or those who have children with asthma, can take an active role in their treatment. For example, they can work with their health care providers to create an asthma action plan. This plan gives guidance on taking medicines properly, avoiding asthma triggers, tracking levels of asthma control, responding to worsening symptoms, and seeking emergency care when needed. When asthma is well controlled, most people who have the disease are able to live normal, active lives.

Asthma and Obstructive Sleep Apnea
 
07:02
http://buteykoclinic.com/ - Buteyko Clinic International In this video Patrick McKeown will talk about connection between asthma and obstructive sleep apnea (osa). Asthma & Sleep Apnea Approximately 74% of asthmatics experience nocturnal symptoms of airflow obstruction secondary to reactive airways disease. Obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea was significantly more prevalent among patients with severe compared with moderate asthma, and more prevalent for both asthma groups than controls without asthma. 88% of patients in the severe asthma group, 58% of patients in the moderate asthma group, and 31% of patients in the controls without asthma group had more than 15 apnoeic events per hour. 472 asthmatic patients that poorly controlled asthma resulted in a threefold increase in the risk of obstructive sleep apnea. If breathing volume is brought towards normal, negative pressure is reduced and apneas reduce? Can we improve Asthma control? -Does sleep disordered breathing cause inflammation of the airways? -Does dysfunctional breathing including mouth breathing cause inflammation of the airways? In the Buteyko group the proportion with asthma control increased from 40% to 79% and in the control group from 44% to 72%. Buteyko group had significantly reduced their inhaled corticosteroids therapy compared with the control group. Asthma is a common long term inflammatory disease of the airways of the lungs. It is characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and bronchospasm. Symptoms include episodes of wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. Obstructive sleep apnea, also known as OSA, is a sleep disorder in which the person stops breathing for at least 10 seconds each hour during sleep. It is caused by relaxation of the throat muscles; the soft tissue in the back of the throat collapses and closes, resulting in blocked airways.
