Chronic Bronchitis and Lung: Coughing At Night - fabianmcgee - 08-27-2016 06:21 PM

Chronic Bronchitis and Lung - Coughing At Night
Cough is a mechanism by which the body is able to throw away unwanted particles that have entered the throat and the lungs. One may experience intermittent bouts of coughing any time during the day, and is considered to be a protective response of the body that drives away all the undesirable debris from the respiratory system. However, coughing frequently everyday during nighttime is not normal and demands prompt medical attention. Be it children or adults, persistent night coughing gives a feeling of chest discomfort and disrupts a good night's sleep.

Steam Inhalation
Excess mucus production is often responsible for causing chest congestion and persistent cough. Steam inhalation provides an easy way to reduce mucus build up and improve cough. This simple home remedy liquifies the mucus, which facilitates mucus drainage from the lungs. Writing an article on Dry Cough was our foremost priority while thinking of a topic to write on. This is because Dry Cough are interesting parts of our lives, and are needed by us.

Postnasal Drip
Respiratory issues such as common cold, seasonal flu and sinus infection are commonly accompanied by postnasal drip, a condition in which abnormally high secretion of mucus in the nasal activity (nostrils) that eventually travels down to the throat. The excess mucus build up gives a feeling of lump in the throat. People with post nasal drip cough frequently, especially at night, which actually helps to remove mucus and clear the throat.

Cstat = VT Pplat - PEEP Cstat stands for static compliance. VT stands for tidal volume and Pplat stands for plateau pressure that is measured at the end of inhalation and prior to exhalation using an inspiratory hold maneuver. PEEP stands for positive end expiratory pressure. Remember that it is very important to have a disciplined mode of writing when writing. This is because it is difficult to complete something started if there is no discipline in writing especially when writing on Dry Cough.
  • Laryngopharynx: This part of the pharynx is located below the epiglottis.
  • It opens into the esophagus and larynx.
  • EpiglottisIt is a flap-like structure (epiglottis) which prevents food or water from entering the trachea at the time of swallowing.

Causes and Symptoms
This is a highly-contagious and common health problem. It is a viral infection which is characterized by the upper respiratory system inflammation. There are several agents which are responsible for this infection. The most common among them are the parainfluenza virus, Bordetella bronchiseptica, and mycoplasma. The former is an airborne virus which is present in almost every dog. This infection usually spreads from one dog to another, especially in a place like a dog show or a kennel. The infection that is present in the lungs of the dog is released into the air when the infected dog coughs or sneezes. If another dog is present nearby, then that dog becomes infected as well. Some of the major kennel cough symptoms are as follows. However, do not worry as there is a vaccine for this illness. :o.
  • Consuming foods at night that you are allergic to can also cause persistent cough.
  • For instance, many have the habit of drinking milk before retiring to bed.
  • However, if they are allergic to dairy products, they may cough persistently throughout the night.

Asthma patients may get relief from cough and breathing problems by inhaling corticosteroids. On the other hand, people suffering from bronchitis are able to effectively manage their symptoms with broncho-dilators, medications that help to dilate airways and ease breathing.

Quote:
  • Is recommended to take prescription medicines to treat other accompanying symptoms like fever, headache, body ache, pain of any kind, etc.
  • Antibiotics are required to treat bacterial bronchitis and bacterial pneumonia.

People experiencing persistent bouts of cough at night have found relief for quite some time after covering feet soles with Vicks VapoRub. It is only through sheer determination that we were able to complete this composition on Lungs. Determination, and regular time table for writing helps in writing essays, reports and articles.

Heart Problems
Coughing at night could also suggest that the heart is not functioning properly. To be precise, it might indicate the presence of congestive heart failure (CHF). People with CHF suffer from mucus producing cough. The mucus that is coughed up during heart problems is pinkish in color. Besides coughing up mucus, the patient may complain about trouble breathing, racing or pounding heart.

Home Remedies
Dry cough is best treated with the help of home remedies that are effective and safe as well. Natural ingredients are to be used for these remedies. They provide long term relief and also prevent it from reoccurring. The above treatment and remedies should be followed as soon as dry cough is developed. If it is persistent or chronic, medical assistance should be sought for it, and once it has been cured, make sure you take appropriate measures to prevent it from recurring.

The larynx, also known as sound box, is formed of cartilages. Epiglottis, thyroid and cricoid are the three important cartilages of larynx; other cartilages present inside the larynx are corniculate, arytenoid and cuneiform.

Allergic Reaction
Exposure to allergens, which can be air borne particles such as dust and pet dander during nighttime can also lead to sudden bouts of coughing. The immune system considers allergens as harmful substances, and so when they are inhaled, they irritate the respiratory tract. The irritation causes accumulation of mucus in the respiratory tract. To get rid of this mucus buildup, the person may excessively cough temporarily. Apart from forceful coughing, contact with allergens can also cause itchy watery eyes and congested nose. The results of one reading this composition is a good understanding on the topic of Cough. So do go ahead and read this to learn more about Cough.

Corniculate cartilage facilitates the flap-like action of epiglottis. TracheaThe trachea, also known as windpipe, extends from larynx to bronchi. In fact, the trachea gets branched into bronchi. It facilitates the flow of air towards the bronchi. It is only because that we are rather fluent on the subject of Bronchitis Viral that we have ventured on writing something so influential on Bronchitis Viral like this!

Dos and Don'ts
If cough and congestion is caused due to common cold, the symptoms should clear within 1-2 days. If not, then the underlying cause may be severe. Although there was a lot of fluctuation in the writing styles of we independent writers, we have come up with an end product on Persistent Cough worth reading!

Treatment Gargling With Salt Water One can also get considerable relief from a bad, noisy cough that keeps everyone awake, by gargling several times with warm salt water. Mix half a teaspoon of salt properly into a cup of warm water and then gargle to reduce cough.
  • The exchange of gases between tissues and tissue capillaries is referred to as peripheral gas exchange.
  • The facts presented in this article give us a rough idea of the anatomy and functioning of the respiratory system.
  • The information about different organs in the respiratory system should allow you to understand their structure and functions in a better manner.

Trachea lies to the anterior side of the esophagus; it is tubular in shape with a diameter of 1 inch. and length of 4.25 inch. Its length spans between the 6th cervical and 5th thoracic vertebrae. We were furnished with so many points to include while writing about Decongesting bronchitis the natural way were actually lost as to which to use and which to discard!

The gas exchange which takes place between pulmonary capillaries and alveoli is termed as pulmonary gas exchange. Movement of gas within pulmonary capillaries, towards peripheral capillaries and back to lungs is referred to as gas transport. When a child shows a flicker of understanding when symptoms of acute bronchitis Pneumonia, we feel that the objective of the meaning of Bronchitis Pneumonia being spread, being achieved.

Viral Infections
Viral infections affecting the upper respiratory tract such as common cold and seasonal flu too can trigger barking cough in adults at night. In addition to night cough, these medical conditions are typically marked by sore throat, fever and body aches. Even after the viral infection associated with common cold has gone away, the patient may continue to experience dry cough that aggravates during nighttime and may last for quite a few weeks. We have to be very flexible when talking to children about Cough Bronchitis. They seem to interpret things in a different way from the way we see things!

Compliance = Change in Volume Change in Pleural Pressure Lung Compliance Curve Static and Dynamic Compliance Lung compliance can be classified into two types: static compliance and dynamic compliance. The former represents pulmonary compliance during periods without gas flow, such as during an inspiratory pause. It can be calculated with the formula:
  • The left lung is divided into 2 lobes (superior and inferior) while the right lung into 3 (superior, inferior and middle).
  • Each lung possesses a triangular organ called hilum; blood vessels, nerves, lymphatics and bronchi pass through the hilum.
  • AlveoliThe alveoli are sac-shaped bodies present inside the lungs, at the tip of alveolar ducts.
  • The alveoli function like an interface for the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between lungs and capillaries.

Nasopharynx: It connects the upper portion of the throat with the nasal cavity. Oropharynx: It is located between the soft palate and upper part of epiglottis. We have written a humorous anecdote on Bronchitis Pneumonia to make it's reading more enjoyable and interesting to you. This way you learn there is a funny side to Bronchitis Pneumonia too!
