Asthma and Obstructive Sleep Apnea
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.

How Science Works KS3: Asthma on the Run
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.

Screening for COPD - Dr. Hirennappa B Udnur
Smoking is a risk factor for lot of other diseases. It is a risk factor for COPD, it is a risk factor for lung cancer. It is a risk factor of various other cancers and heart diseases. It is the biggest risk factor and it is a reversible risk factor, means if you stop smoking, you can prevent lot of things and one of the ways top screening in a smokers is objectively. Some [people are willing to quit and it is addict forming and it is a high amount of nicotine dependence. So what happens in smokers, how do you screen? So once the patient comes to us, we ask the smoking history, how much, whether they smoke beedi, whether they smoke cigarettes, how many pack years they have. Everyday how much they smoke, if the first thing in the morning, there is an urge to smoke, and whenever they try to quit smoking, they get any withdrawal symptoms like sweating, urge to smoke again and because of the peer pressures, they end up smoking again. These are the symptoms we look at it, and once they are seen, the first thing is, just do a smoke screening x-ray and see if there any changes of COPD. Normally the x ray will be normal. Sometimes there will be prominent bronchovascular markings, what we call it as a dirty lung picture. So that might be a manifestation .So patients can be seen suddenly in the emergency with an acute exacerbation as the first episode of COPD, where they come with a pneumonia, but normally these are during exacerbations . Normally in a routine screening, these are the manifestations. Bronchial wall thickening, vascular walls are prominent. These are the changes that we see in an x ray. Very rarely if there is a high index, you can find a small nodule in the lung,, which can be a first sign of a cancer, which requires further evaluation. So other thing tool, because I the lung there will be not much changes. Since it affects the airway, pulmonary function test, or a spirometry which is called or a peak flow meters, normally used in asthma, because it measures in the first second and even the COPD, it is an airway disease, we need to do a full spirometry or a lung function test its called or a pulmonary function test, its called. There we see the following changes. Normal spirometry will rule out COPD, whereas unlike asthma. So what happens in the changes. The first changes means, if you see a flow volume loop, there may be a cooling of the expiratory limb, or there may be a small airway obstruction. Sometimes, there will be a large airway obstruction, and if you do a reversibility testing, there will be a partial reversibility. That confirms it is COPD.
Asthma and COPD
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/

Low Oxygen Symptoms: 5 Signs You May Not Be Getting Enough Oxygen
Low Oxygen Symptoms: 5 Signs You May Not Be Getting Enough Oxygen Like, Comment, Subscribe and invite all your friends to see our videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUOF1_1_fY50PVN0TtItbDQ?sub_confirmation=1 Hypoxemia occurs when a person experiences lower-than-normal oxygen levels in the blood, specifically in the arteries. According to WebMD, this can lead to what’s known as hypoxia, “when your blood doesn’t carry enough oxygen to your tissues to meet your body’s needs,” although hypoxia is often used to describe both conditions. This can occur suddenly as a result of taking certain medications or having an asthma attack, or develop over time due to heart problems or lung diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) and emphysema. Although symptoms of hypoxia often vary from person to person, the following are the five most common ones to be aware of. 1. Skin Color Changes As red blood cells are what carry oxygen to the body’s tissues, an insufficient amount of them can cause the skin to change color. Known as cyanosis, the skin will typically appear a dark bluish-red, and is most noticeable if oxygen levels drops dramatically. For those with darker skin colors, MedlinePlus says cyanosis “may be easier to see in the mucous membranes (lips, gums, around the eyes) and nails.” 2. Confusion The NHS defines a state of confusion as “not being able to think clearly or quickly, feeling disorientated, and struggling to pay attention, make decisions, or remember things.” If you notice yourself or someone else suddenly exhibiting any of these symptoms, it may be an indication of hypoxia. Sudden hypoxia could be caused by a variety of reasons, from a severe asthma attack to a problem with the heart or lungs. 3. Coughing One of the most common causes of hypoxia is a severe asthma attack, during which it can be hard to get sufficient air into the lungs as the airways have narrowed. In an attempt to clear the lungs, a person may cough frequently. While this is a natural reaction, it can prove dangerous as WebMD says “coughing to clear your lungs uses even more oxygen and can make symptoms worse.” 4. Rapid Heart Rate and Breathing An increased heart rate most often occurs when engaging in physical activity, so if it happens while at rest it may be an indication of hypoxia. When the body isn’t receiving sufficient oxygen, Livestrong.com says that the heart begins pumping faster in order to “help circulate oxygen-containing blood throughout the body in an attempt to meet the cells’ needs.” Breathing also becomes more rapid when the body’s oxygen needs aren’t being met, in an effort to increase intake. While people normally breathe at a rate of 12 to 16 times per minute, in these situations rates may increase to 24 breaths or higher. 5. Shortness of Breath Shortness of breath is considered one of the most obvious symptoms of hypoxia, and often occurs as a result of the increased heart rate and breathing mentioned previously. It often occurs while at rest, and can become so severe that it feels as though you’re choking. Shortness of breath will be especially pronounced when engaging in physical activities, and may decrease one’s tolerance for them. It may also happen during sleep, causing you to wake up out of breath. In some cases, shortness of breath may also be accompanied by wheezing, a high-pitched whistling sound that occurs when breathing, particularly exhaling.

Asthma for USMLE Step 2
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.

Spirometry Test Diagnose Lung Disease - Manipal Hospitals
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.

COPD Treatment In Urdu - Health Tips In Urdu
COPD Treatment In Urdu - Health Tips In Urdu, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an umbrella term used to describe progressive lung diseases including emphysema, chronic bronchitis, refractory (non-reversible) asthma, and some forms of bronchiectasis. This disease is characterized by increasing breathlessness. Many people mistake their increased breathlessness and coughing as a normal part of aging. In the early stages of the disease, you may not notice the symptoms. COPD can develop for years without noticeable shortness of breath. You begin to see the symptoms in the more developed stages of the disease. That’s why it is important that you talk to your doctor as soon as you notice any of these symptoms. Ask your doctor about taking a spirometry test. Its affects an estimated 30 million individuals in the U.S., and over half of them have symptoms of COPD and do not know it. Early screening can identify it before major loss of lung function occurs.

Running with asthma
Running right now in Edmonton, Alberta is not easy. Our air quality has been extremely high because of the smoke from the wildfires on British Columbia. As an asthmatic I have not been able to run. Today the air seemed more clear so I attempted to run. After about 3km I couldn't catch my breath.

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).
