What are the side effects of using asthma medicines when someone is suffering from serious asthma disease.
My father got admitted to hospital a week ago with a very low oxygen saturation level of 85. Partial pressure of O2 was also very low and that of CO2 was very high. After a week of NIV support in ICU, it gradually improved to 90s and CO2 came down and O2 pp reached 60. Shifted to ward with NIV, but in 2-3 hours oxygen saturation went down to 81 and they took him to ICU again. Bowel not cleared for the whole week. He's unable to and while values improve by deep breathing, he can't do that beyond a minute. What's happening and what to do? Has to be in ICU for more time?

Hi, I am an asthamatic and taking asthalin rotacaps from last 20 years. Isn' t there any permanent solution to it? also, are there any sideeffects to it? as in a day I take it around two times and that too daily.
Dear Doctor, I have been suffering for the past 8 months with a cough and wheezing especially while lying down. One Physician asked me to have a Chest X-ray. Result was chest seemed clear- ? bronchitis. Have tried allopathy medications, antibiotics, ayurvedic medicines but with no relief. I recently had a Spirometry test done that too was normal. The doctor suggested Cipla Foracort 200 rotacaps with revolizer 1-0-0 x 15 days. I did get some relief as long as I was on the capsules on the 18th day the symptoms recurred. I am a 68 year old female. Never had this before. I do not have asthma, no h/o asthma in my family. No Diabetes or Hypertension either. Would appreciate your opinion and advice. Many thanks.
Hi doctor. My wife is now 23 weeks pregnant. We are concerned about the nature of fetal anomaly in chest and what should be next course of action. On 13/08/15, At 21 weeks anomaly scan USG report says that Right lung appear to be broad in size and left lung seems to be small in size. A well defined septated cystic area measuring about 21*16.9 mm in size is seen in the base of the left lung in front of the heart and spine. It is aborting and slightly pushed the heart. The left lobe of the diaphragm seems to be raised. Suggestive of cystic adenomatoid malformation of lung. D/D- Diaphragmatic hernia/Eventration. On 22/08/15 (after 9 days) we did another ultrasound at another hospital which reports that Right lung is larger in size than left lung. At the base of the left lung, there is a cystic structure which pushes the lung in front of the heart. The left lobe of the diaphragm seems to be raised-possibly due to Diaphragmatic hernia. On 25/08/15 (after 3 days) the 3rd ultrasound anomaly scan report at other hospital says that the diaphragm of the left side is seen in moderately high up position and appears thin. Part of the stomach is seen along the left sided of the chest. The above condition of the left sided diaphragm is suggestive of (?) EVENTRATION or (?) HERNIA.(no pleural effusion/ascites). All the 3 above reports say that Fetal growth, weight, movement, cardiac activity, AFI are normal. No other major anomaly. Please advise me.

Seasonal allergy causes some symptoms sinusitis rashes sneeze during rainy season what should I do to get rid of it.
My 18 months old daughter is suffering from cough. Whenever the season changes she gets the cough and it took a long to heal. It started when she turned one on feb 2015 and she went down viral for a week. The cough disappeared after a month, but it was on and off for a long time. Got some relief after trying homeopathy, but during this monsoon it appeared back. And now she is coughing miserably.
The inflammation of the cavities around nasal passage is known as sinusitis. When the cavities are full of fluid, germs attach themselves to the fluids, which give rise to infections. Some of the causes of sinusitis are common colds, allergic rhinitis problem, nasal polyps and deviated septum. You can also learn about common ear infections.
There are 4 different types of sinusitis:
- Acute sinusitis: It remains for about 4 weeks or less. It is usually characterized by a runny nose and pain in the face which will stay for at least 10 to 14 days.
- Sub acute sinusitis: It is almost like the acute sinusitis but stays longer for about 4 to 8 weeks.
- Chronic sinusitis: The inflammation in this case lasts about 8 weeks, sometimes longer than that.
- Recurrent sinusitis: In this, the sinusitis attack keeps occurring all through the year.
At times, to clear up the blocked sinuses, a surgery is mandatory. This can be painful hence many are hesitant to go through with a surgery. If you want to control sinusitis so that it doesn't reach the limit where you have to go through a surgery, here are some tips of what you might be able to do regularly to clear your chances of controlling this:
- Take steam: This is the most common and easy way to control sinusitis. The steam helps to break down the excess mucus in the nasal passage and also reduces the inflammation of the sinuses. All you need is water. Heat it up to the required temperature and then inhale the steam. You will get a lot of relief if you do this regularly.
- Nasal Irrigation: This is basically the process of flushing the infected and stale mucus out of the nasal cavity. Take a liter of sterile water, mix one tablespoon of kosher salt and baking soda each. Then with the help of a syringe or a neti pot, wash your nostrils with the solution. The mucus will start coming out and your nasal cavity will clear out.
- Use warm washcloth: Lie down and place a warm washcloth (a washcloth dipped in warm water and wringed) on your forehead and nose region. The warmth from the washcloth will break down the mucus and clear the congestion.
