Sometimes I get little pain in my chest on left side. Do not know why this are happening. I have problem of cough issue.
Hi, I'm a 21 year old male, I suffer form chest congestion form time to time, my doctor had prescribed me a mild inhaler (the type used by asthma patients) because it would help . But I I had no luck finding it in any drug store . Eventually I misplaced the prescription and I do not remember the name/type of inhaler it was . Could you possibly tell me what inhaler I should use for this purposes? Thank you.
Hi, I am 24 years old. Last year I have got this dry cough issue. I have get it checked with many doctors. initially they said it was throat infection. So I kept on taking meds for the same. But it was so irritating and I couldn't concentrate on my studies. So I have started my treatment with AIIMS. I have had X rays, CT Scan and breathing tests and I have also get it confirmed that I do not have any TB issues via the tests. Now, one of the doctor says that I have chronic laryngitis. He suggested to use less tea, less chilli etc. I am a student and I study late night. So, I do take coffee. Help me out because I still have this issue but you think it's better than before. Thank you!

The heart's electrical conduction system plays a very important role in cardiovascular functioning. Also known as the atrioventricular (AV) conduction system, it regulates and controls the timing of the heartbeat.
How does the heart's electrical conduction system work?
There is a collection of electrical cells in the upper right atrium of the heart known as the sinoatrial (SA) node which acts as a natural pacemaker and generates electrical signals. These signals travel through specialized electrical pathways and stimulate the muscular walls of the heart to contract in a rhythmic manner. This gives rise to the heartbeat that pulses at a specific frequency every minute.
What is the effect of fluctuations in electrical activity on the heart?
The standard heart rate in human being ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. It slows down when a person sleeps and speeds up when one experiences physical or emotional heightening. These fluctuations are triggered by the brain or other systems of the body and signal the SA node to generate charges more rapidly or slowly. This leads to spikes and drops in the heart rate, depending on the nature of the situation.
What happens when there is dysfunction in the heart's electrical activity?
When the heart's electrical conduction system does not function properly, it leads to the occurrence of a condition known as arrhythmia or abnormal heart rhythm. This happens when electrical impulses are generated in an irregular manner and causes tachycardia (rapid heartbeats) or bradycardia (slow heartbeats) which takes place in jarring infrequent tempos.
What causes fluctuations in the heart's electrical activity?
There are various kinds of triggers that cause the heart rate to fluctuate. The exact nature of fluctuation also depends on the type of trigger. A few everyday examples of these causes are as follows:
- Exercise and strenuous physical activity increases electrical activity as the heart is required to beat faster so as to increase the supply of blood and oxygen to the muscles.
- Sleep and rest reduce heart rate as the body is not needed to exert itself.
- Release of adrenaline into the bloodstream causes the heart rate to spike up.
