Mouth Breathing - What Can Cause It?

MBBS, Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO)
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
Mouth Breathing - What Can Cause It?

An estimated of 10 percent or more children snore for more than 1 night. Snoring results from the obstruction of breath when the air makes its way through the mouth. The air passage of the throat through which the air goes in and out causes the tissue to vibrate causing snore. The sound of the snore totally depends on the amount of air passing through the mouth and the frequency at which the throat is vibrating. Children above the age of three years tend to snore when they are deep in sleep.

Primary and secondary snoring:
Children who are otherwise healthy should not have a snoring problem unless there is some health disorder. However, if loud snoring is observed in otherwise a perfectly healthy kid, seeking medical help is a wise thing to do. In general, primary snoring is defined as a condition which is not associated with other sleep-related disorders such as lung disorder, OASS, inability to sleep for a longer duration etc.

Other possibilities:
It is estimated that close to three percent of the children suffers from breathing problem while sleeping. OSAS is a condition which is characterised by pauses in breathing and gasps along with loud snores. There could be instances where a kids’ muscle relaxes way too much obstructing the air to pass through. The body and the brain are both alerted at this stage. As soon as the brain sends a signal, the body wakes up. Thus, most kids suffering from this disorder are not able to sleep well and tend to feel tired throughout the day.

Common causes of sleep apnea:
Sleep apena is a major cause of snoring. It can be caused because of allergies, obesity, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) etc. In children sleep, apnea can also be caused by tonsil. Since the tonsil size of children less than 7 years of age tends to be bigger than adult individuals, it causes snoring related problem. Swollen tonsils not only obstruct air but creates other health related problems as well.

Symptoms of sleep apnea during the day and night:

  1. Loud snore
  2. Snorts, gasps, pauses during sleep
  3. Heavy sweat during sleep
  4. Social and behavioural problems
  5. Failure to get up in the morning
  6. A nasal voice
  7. Easily irritated, cranky and aggressive

Relief measure:
The first thing a that a doctor does is a physical exam followed by observing the symptoms of a kid. Primary snorting can be addressed by physical exercise, counselling and breathing exercise. Problems related to apnea are addressed through medicine, counselling, and exercise. Certain dietary restrictions also needed to be followed during this time. However, apena is completely treatable within a certain time frame.

Good day to you. I have severe throat infection along with high fever. I was advised to take augmentin 1g twice a day. Is this prescription safe? I mean isn't one tablet a day (1g) enough, or should I take twice a day?

Usually, for your weight, 1000 mg is too much. That is reserved for persons above 75 kgs. However, it can be given in exceptional cases due to severe infections as deemed fit by your doctor to achieve maximum kill rate of these dangerous germs. It has to be taken twice daily. However, if you experience loose motions or abdominal discomfort, drink a bottle of Yakult probiotic drink after lunch daily till your antibiotic course is over.

Yes, your doctor is right. However, with recent advances in Surgical technology, namely the Microdebrider, this can be done as a short stay Endoscopic Nasal Surgery where the patient is hospitalized only for a few hours and instead spend the recovery period of one week at home, saving you time, money and post-operative pain!

I am suffering from tonsillitis and sore throat and fever 101.5.which fruit juice is most helpful and how to cure tonsillitis as soon as possible.

LASER assisted Tonsillar Ablation! The infected tonsils are sitting time bombs filled with dangerous multidrug-resistant germs just waiting to attack and destroy your vital organs like heart and kidneys! At the most antibiotics can clear your blood stream off the germs but inside the tonsils, these germs have created a plasmid barrier which even the most potent of antibiotics cannot penetrate. The tonsils have no function after 3 years of age when your spleen, and bone marrow replace the tonsillar tissue for immune regulation. Find an ENT Surgeon in your city who is equipped and experienced in doing LASER assisted Tonsil Ablation. Alternatively, come down to Bengaluru, and I will personally operate upon you and cure you.

The fact that Otrivin is helping you confirms that you need Nasal Surgery to correct the nasal septal deviation. Modern endoscopic techniques have made this a relatively safe and with rapid recovery and minimal post-op discomfort. You can breathe using your nostrils immediately after you come out of surgery!

Hi, my problem started with white chunks from my mouth. And I started feeling lump like thing in my throat. After consulting ent doctor, she told that white chunks are "tonsil stones" and lump like feeling might be due to GERD. After taking medicine its reduced and it started again after few days. I use to feel something in my throat all the time. I don't feel any heart burn. Can any one please suggest what is the problem and whom to consult?

Your tonsils have deep crypts or pits where food particles like rice get trapped and they rot over time and get coated with salivary calcium forming the tonsilloliths! Solution: LASER assisted Tonsillar Ablation wherein about 2-3 mm of the surface of the tonsil is vaporized by the LASER making the pits shallow so food cannot be trapped anymore! I routinely do this surgery. Do drop in to my clinic for further management.

Undergo Tonsillectomy by either LASER assisted Ablation method or Coblation wand, both of which are relatively safe, painless and offer rapid recovery when compared to the conventional surgical dissection.

It is a simple inexpensive procedure using a LASER, that I sometimes also do as an Office Procedure. it will cost you about Rs10000 all inclusive. No hospitalisation or bedrest required. However you will need to be on a liquid diet using a thick straw for a few days to allow the wounds to heal.

Its been 2 weeks I had a septoplasty and turbinate reduction surgery. So one thing I noticed that doctor has not removed the bony spur on right due to which I had breathing problems. When I asked him he said he has changed the angle of spur and we cannot remove it. Is it so? And I am still facing breathing problems. How long it will take to recover completely? Shall I eat/drink cold stuff like cold-drink or ice cream?

lybrate-user, you will need to wait for 3 months before your nose could be reoperated. So, get a CT-PNS scan after 3 months and if the obstruction is radiologically confirmed, find another better ENT Surgeon to revise the surgery. REMEMBER- If you pay peanuts, you will only get monkeys!

lybrate-user, if you use a cotton mattress, get rid of it and replace it with a high density polyurethane foam mattress along with a mattress protector. Similarly use polyurethane pillows with pillow protector case. Stop using brooms, but instead wet mop your bedrooms. Use wall mounted fans in place of ceiling fans. Remember, the real patient in allergies is your environment which needs to be treated. Your body has only become hypersensitive to this environment.

lybrate-user, Your ENT surgeon is right. You need a Septoplasty to correct the nasal Septal deformity. It is a very simple surgery which I do as a daycare case. I have been doing the latest packless endoscopic nasal surgery for the last 15 years which means - NO BANDAGES BLOCKING NOSE (nasal breathing is possible immediately after surgery), NO LONG HOSPITALISATION (patient usually leaves the hospital within 2 hours after the surgery)! You are welcome to drop into my clinic in Bengaluru for the same if you do not get anyone to do this surgery in your Town.

Ear discharge - 5 Ways to Manage it at Home!

Ear discharge - 5 Ways to Manage it at Home!

Ear discharge may occur due to several reasons. Injury or trauma to the ear canal, a ruptured ear drum or an infection in the middle ear may be the most common causes of ear discharge. Eczema, swimmer’s ear and other skin irritations may also lead to this problem. While there are some simple home remedies to treat this disorder, always consult an ENT specialist if the discharge does not stop after the application of those treatments. Let us look at some common ways to treat this disorder.

  1. Use gravity: While this method does not treat ear discharge per se, it does help in draining the fluid build-up in the ear. Just lie down on your side keeping the affected ear parallel to the ground. Use your finger to create a vacuum inside your ear and drain the fluid inside it. The finger must be clean. You can also use a cotton wad for this purpose. Another way could be by simply lying on your side with a towel under your ear.
  2. Use a warm compress: This treatment promotes the flow of ear discharge to its outer part, thereby alleviating the pain. Dip a clean piece of cloth in warm water, wring the cloth as much as you can and then place it around your ear for 2-5 minutes. Lie down on your side.
  3. Inhale steam: Inhaling steam, opens up the Eustachian tube, thereby promoting the flow of the trapped ear discharge. Simply mix a little bit of eucalyptus oil with some water, boil the mixture and inhale the steam. Tilt your head to one side so that the fluid drains out. Do this exercise for 5-10 minutes. Cover your head and the water with a towel to prevent the steam from escaping. Repeat this exercise as needed.
  4. Use vinegar and rubbing alcohol mixture: Vinegar and rubbing alcohol have excellent anti-microbial properties. Mix equal parts of white vinegar and rubbing alcohol. Put some drops of the mixture in a dropper. Lie down on your side with the infected ear upwards. Insert some drops of the solution with the dropper in your ear. Wait for 10 minutes and then drain out the ear discharge by tilting the infected ear to the other side. Repeat this exercise twice a day for better results.
  5. Use garlic oil: Crush 2-3 garlic cloves and extract its oil. Use a dropper to put 2-3 drops of this extract into your affected ear. Tilt the head to one side so that the juice settles down. Now hold a dryer next to the infected ear and let the warm air blow inside it. Repeat this exercise twice a day for better results.

Please meet an ENT Specialist who will gently suction out all the debris out of your child's ears! Please disregard the advise given by the other doctors who are clearly not qualified to give you the right advise in this case! NEVER USE COTTON BUDS TO CLEAN YOUR/YOUR CHILD'S EARS! You will only end up pushing the debris further into the ear canal and may even damage the delicate skin of the ear canal or even perforate the eardrum! Use the soliwax ear drops every 2 waking hours for 2-3 days before visiting an ENT Specialist so that the softened debris can be sucked out gently by the ENT Specialist's microsuction tools.
