Respiratory Illnesses And Diseases

MBBS, MD - Pulmonary Medicine
Pulmonologist, Noida
Play video

Hello Everyone!

This is Dr. Manish Sahu.I'm a pulmonologist. I am a generalphysician practicing in Sector 104 Noida and Sector 61Noida.

Aaj mein kuch baat aapko is video ke madhyam se kehna chahta hu especially being a chestspecialist main kuch respiratorydisease ke baare me aapko batana chahta hu jaise ki aapne suna hoga asthma Jise hindi me dama kehte hai.Ye bohot common misconception ki ye theek ho jata hai ya kabhi kabhi dawai leni padti hai. Mein aapko ye baat batana chahta hu ki jis tarah se diabetes andhypertension jisko sugar ki beemari or blood pressure ki beemari bolte hai isme aapko dawai puri jindgi leni padti hai aise hi asthama ka koi puri tarah se ilaz nahi hua. Aapko iski dawai leni padti hai, aapko isko control me rakhna padta hai. Issi tarah tuberculosis ke baare me ek baat mein aapko batana chahta hu. Generally logo ko lagta hai ki tuberculosis sirf lower class ke logo me paaya jata hai ya gareeb logo me paaya jata hai but esa kuch nahi hai. India me tuberculosis bhot jyda matra me paaya jata hai or ye kisi ko bhi ho sakta hai mein aap kisi ko bhi. Aur asal me ye sirf ek lower socioeconomic status me paya jata hai. Ye higher socioeconomicstatus me bhi paya jaata hai lekin there is one thing ki hum Delhi NCR area me rhte hai. Main aapko batana chahta hu ki aaj kal jo pollution levels hai yaha pe ye kafi dangerous hai or aapko pata bhi nahi hai ki ye aapke lungs ko kis tarah se effect karte hai. From past one and half year practicing in Noida and Delhi I can tell you about ki jin logo ki ye khasi ki beemari 5 din me theek ho jati thi ab ise theek hone me 10-15 din lagte hai. Theyneed more consultation, more money, moremedications and still they are nottotally relief. So these are the thingsthat is affecting our lungs, the pollution theparticular matters. So you have to takecare of that and you have to take somePrecautions. And then there is onetopic called sleep apnea jo aaj kal bhot jyada chl raha hai. Sleep apnea kya hai jab ham sote time kharate lete hai bohot to hamari neend kabhi kabhi beech me udti hai isme neend ke jyada tutne se hamare heart pe bhot jyada pressure padta hai or isme diabetes hone ki chances jyada hoti hai. Diabetes heart pe stroke hone ke chances jyada hote hai, cardiac disease hone ke chance jyada hote hai to ham sleep studies karke aaj kal dekh lete hai ki kiski sleep kitni hai uski remedies kitni hai.

Agar apki koi bhi query hai, agar aap consultation chahte hai to mera clinic Sector 104 me bhi hai, Sector 61 me bhi hai.

My baby boy is 2.7 years old but not speaking as other babies in his age group. He talks in his own language and communicate by sign/signals. He also does not chew food and having difficulty to sallow it, I need to give him semi solid food or need to blend it, otherwise he will vomit it. I consulted my baby's pediatrician (and few more doctors) and he said its normal and asked to wait till 5 years. Please suggest me the solution for the both. For speech, should I consult a speech therapist?

Pediatrician, Pune
if he can hear well , speech will develop in due course of time , try to interact with the child as much as possible along with playful activity , can give him regular food made at home for everybody , no need to give semisolid food , though initially you may have some difficulty , let the child feed himself , don't try to spoonfeed yourself , he will enjoy the food as play and finally put it in his mouth by himself

My baby is two months old girl. She is only fed mother's milk. Now she has not done potty since 3 days. Before this, she was doing normal potty daily. She is taking medicines bisgly-xt drops, rxplus drops, calshine p drops, ostocalcium b12 syrup that are prescribed 1 & 1/2 months ago by paediatrician. Now please advise, what to do for her normal motion.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Relax no need to do anything. If child is taking breast feeds and is active, to pass soft stools once in 5-6 days is normal. If child is passing gas then there is no mechanical obstruction in the gut (serious surgical condition). As regards the tonics iron and vit d drops are okay.

10 Things You Should Know About Poop And Pee Of Your Baby

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician, Seoni

Useful facts you should know:

1. After birth we can wait 24 hrs for first poop and 48 hrs for pee. If it is not immediately consult your doctor.

2. First 2 to 3 days baby can pass black stool which is called meconium so don't worry about black stool.

3. First two to three days after birth baby had concentrated urine rich of urate so we can get orange colured in diaper sometimes.

4. Sometimes baby can cry and irritated before passing urine or stool because of weak bladder and anal canal muscles which is strengthen with time.

5. If baby cry every time during and after passing urine we have to consult doctor for urinary infection.

6. Red colured urine or stool is always pathological immediately consult your doctor.

7. Neonate can pass stool ten to twelves times a day if baby is active and accepting feed well. Once in a week interval is also normal for breast feed baby.

8. Ash coloured stool is always pathological it is due neonatal cholestheasis.

9. Sometimes breast feed baby passes green cloured stool, it is mainly due to consumption of formilk only. It is advisable feed one breast at a time so baby can get formilk, midmilk and hind milk.

10. Sometimes newborn baby pass small amount of stool during micturition or crying it is normal if baby is active and accepting feed well.

My son is 4 years old he has been having a cough and cold continuously since 8 months. Docs say he has childhood asthma and allergy. I give him his medicines but he is not getting better. Please suggest alternatives.

Hi, if your son is having asthama then instead of oral medicine he should be put on asthalin inhalers and if required steroid inhaler.

Hello. Watery stool is unlikely due to the medicine he is taking. More likely due the reason he had fever like viral fever with viral diarrhea. Give plenty of liquids and ors. After every motion give few sips of ors. Practice handwashing of baby before giving any food item in his hand. Outside junk food to be strictly avoided. Keep in mind baby passes 4 to 5 times urine per day.

It's due to nld block, we used to say naasoor in local language. It's because a nasolacrimal duct might be blocked or narrow or underdeveloped. You can consult eye specialist to learn how to do nld massage. Antibiotics eye drops will help temporarily. If problem persist, nld probing or syringing would be the final treatment after 12 months of age. Best wishes.
