Yesss, smoking creates lots of health problems. If you want to quit your addiction of smoking you need to create motivation in urself that you can stay without smoking. It helps to create your self confidence to quit it. Try to attaind narcotics anonymous meetings. Or you can take help from psychiatrist to deal with your withdrawal symptoms. Use positive substitutes like chewing chocklate, mithi soanf etc. But do not use smoking if you r going through craving. If you have any questions you can ask me anytime. Not to worry, best luck. I know you have the ability as well as power to come out from the disease of smoking addiction. Have a nice day.

Have early and light dinner. If just once clearing your throat before sleep serves your purpose then nothing to worry about. Eating sl=ecialy spicy food increases nasopharyngeal secretion which needs clearing.

Sinusitis is inflammation of the membrane that lines the sinus (sinuses the air-filled cavities in your forehead and cheeks and behind the bridge of your nose, produce thin mucus) and nasal passages, narrow ducts into the nasal cavity.

It can spring from hay fever, a virus or just about anything that irritates your nasal passages.

The inflammation alone can cause painful, tender eyes, cheeks and nasal passages, headaches, even earaches. Not only are sinus infections painful, they are also long lived and difficult to clear up, even with antibiotics - a good reasons to thin the mucus and encourage drainage with the right foods.


* Chillies, onions, horseradish, wasabi, and other foods that make
your nose run
Draining mucus is a sure way relieve sinus pressure and pain

* Capsicum, Citrus fruit and other foods rich in vitamin C--
Vitamin C is crucial for keeping the immune system in top form, means fewer colds, flus and even allergies

* Hot liquids
Sip hot tea with lemon or a steaming bowl of chicken soup
(or any soup made with clear broth) to get the ' juices' in your
head flowing

* Tea and water
The more fluids you take in, the thinner the mucus in your nasal
passages. Drink at least eight 250-ml glasses, or 2 litres daily.

* Nuts, seeds, wheat-germ, almonds, sunflower seeds and other
foods reach in vitamin E


* Dairy foods
For example
Milk, Cheese and other dairy foods make mucus seem thicker

* Alcohol may swell nasal and sinus membranes

Do you have family history of asthama? the right medications for you depend on a number of things, including your age, your symptoms, your breathing triggers and what seems to work best to keep your breathlessness under control. Preventive, long-term control medications reduce the inflammation in your airways that leads to symptoms. Quick-relief inhalers (bronchodilators) quickly open swollen airways that are limiting breathing. In some cases, allergy medications are necessary. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

How do we know that a patient on mechanical ventilator is breathing himself /herself.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician
Ask Free Question
Hmm. Good question. It will be difficult for a lay man to evaluate that. Because ventilators have different settings. If the patient is conscious and is able to cough then probably he is breathing on it's own. But I am guessing that you would like to know in case of an unconscious person on ventilator. Most patients on ventilators would be on SIMV setting. In whic h a ceratin amount of respirations are set to be given/assisted by the ventilators and rest the patient takes himself. So ask your doctor for the set respiratory rate insimv mode and count the patient's respiration yourself. For eg if your doctor says that that the set rest rate is 12 and you count the patuient's resp rate as 16 then the patient is taking atlest 4 breaths on his or her own. In assist control mode almost every braeth is assisted by rthe ventilator so it is difficult to assess by alay person. If the mode is cpap then every breath being taken is being initiated by the patient. To summarise ask you doctor the mode of ventilator setting, ACM or BIPAP or CPAP. It is difficult to tell inACMV mode. Follow the above example in SIMV mode if in CPAPmode then your patient is definitely breathing by himself. Hope it helps.
