I am on tuberculosis treatment since last 1 month, my concern is I am unable to have my medicine on given time for eg: I have asked to have r comes and razo d half hour before breakfast and combutol and benadon after breakfast, but I have my first dose of r comes and razo d around 6 to 7 am and second dose of combutol and benadon at 10.30-11 am and third dose of pyzina around 3-4 after my lunch is it proper or wrong pls suggest me, but since last one month I am gaining my weight during my treatment.

It's ok to take your fasting RComes which I consider is rifampicin and isoniazid 15 to 30 min empty stomach then only breakfast .avoid Razo d with it. If needed can be taken even before dinner. Rest is good. Weight gain is reassuring. Do get regular monitoring of disease with your physician.

Can Bronchitis Be Contagious?

Can Bronchitis Be Contagious?

You are out in public, and a person next to you is incessantly coughing. It is natural to be worried if it is bronchitis and the possibility of you getting infected. Read on to know about the condition and if it is really contagious. Bronchial tubes are the airways in the lungs, and when they are inflamed due to an infection or an underlying medical condition, it results in bronchitis. Bronchitis can be acute or chronic and depending on the cause, may or may not be contagious.

Types of bronchitis
Chronic bronchitis occurs when the airways in the lungs get irritated again and again. Though it’s a severe health condition that requires medical attention, it is not as contagious as it occurs due to the exposure to certain chemicals, dust, cigarette smoke or smoke from a fire, air pollutants that irritate the lungs.

On the other hand, acute bronchitis that usually lasts for one to three weeks is considered to be contagious because this particular type of bronchitis happens due to the flu or cold viruses. It is the infectious properties of the viruses causing it that makes it contagious.

Transmission
In the case of acute bronchitis, since it is caused mainly due to viral infections when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks, the viruses get transmitted to others in the surrounding. Hence it can spread quickly.

Symptoms
Some of the common symptoms of acute bronchitis are a hacking cough, production of excessive mucus, shortness of breath, and feelings of discomfort in the chest. Note that as long as the infection is present, acute bronchitis remains contagious. Once the infection is gone, it is no longer contagious, though, the symptoms, like a persisting cough, may stay for several weeks afterward.

Prevention
Maintaining a healthy hygiene, such as washing hands regularly or keeping the surfaces clean, or using a handkerchief when coughing or sneezing can help in preventing the spread of the infection as well as getting affected with it. Also, taking flu vaccinations and quitting to smoke can also assist in preventing lung infections.

Treatment
For the majority cases of acute bronchitis, the condition is resolved by itself within a few weeks and antibiotics may not be an ideal treatment option if the acute bronchitis is caused by a virus. The most recommended treatment options that can quicken the recovery process are taking rest, opting for prescribed over-the-counter medications, drinking lots of fluids, inhaling the steam of hot water, whether from the shower or a bowl of hot water.

People who have asthma or chronic bronchitis sometimes may develop acute bronchitis as a result of further complications of their present lung conditions and not as a result of virus invasion. Therefore, the chances of such acute bronchitis being contagious are less than those caused by influenza viruses or bacteria.

Thus, acute bronchitis due to a viral infection is more contagious than chronic bronchitis that is due to an underlying medical condition like asthma and other lung diseases. With a few simple and effective measures, such contagious infections can be prevented.

Diagnosis and Management For Emphysema

Diagnosis and Management For Emphysema

Emphysema is a breathing disorder that has no cure and worsens with time. The symptoms of emphysema - a feeling of tightness in the chest, persistent cough, wheezing and breathlessness – are caused due to destroyed or impaired functioning of lung tissue.

Diagnosing Emphysema
A thorough physical examination which would include weight and blood pressure checks would be performed. The doctor would also listen to the heartbeat to determine if it sounds strange or different.

In addition to checking for the signs and symptoms of emphysema, a physical examination would also help the doctor in determining the following:

  • Whether the fingertips are rounded. This condition is also known as “clubbing”.
  • Whether you have a rounded or “barrel chest” which is caused by lungs that are larger than normal.
  • If the lips have a blue tinge also known as cyanosis, which is a sign of low levels of oxygen in the blood.
  • Signs of malnutrition as in advanced cases of emphysema the muscles slowly waste away.

Tests For Emphysema
A doctor would recommend additional tests to confirm his diagnosis of this lung condition. Some of the tests are:

  • Pulmonary Function Tests or PFTs and spirometry tests would be advised to measure the volume and capacity of the lungs.
  • A chest X-ray is useful to diagnose advanced emphysema as the lungs appear larger than normal in patients with this condition.
  • A CT scan of the chest will show the air sacs or alveoli have been destroyed.
  • The blood test report of patients with emphysema would show a high amount of red blood cells. The production of red blood cells in the body increases due to the reduced levels of oxygen.
  • A pulse oximetry test also known as an oxygen saturation test could be done to measure the amount of oxygen in the blood. A monitor would be attached to the patient’s forehead, finger or earlobe to carry out this test.
  • An arterial blood gas test is usually performed on patients as their condition worsens. It measures the amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the blood.
  • An electrocardiogram or ECG might be advised to rule out condition such as heart disease as a cause of shortness of breath.

Management and Treatment
There is no known cure for emphysema and the condition can worsen with time. Treatment will slow the speed of decline and will depend on the severity of the condition when diagnosed. Some treatment options are:

  1. Quit smoking to protect your lungs.
  2. Bronchodilator medications used to treat asthma are useful in relaxing the muscles around the airways.
  3. Anti-inflammatory medications reduce inflammation around the airways.
  4. Oxygen therapy is recommended to patients when they are not able to breathe enough oxygen from the air.
  5. In some severe cases, lung volume reduction surgery might be advised to relieve pressure on the muscles required for breathing and to improve the elasticity of the lungs.

Keeping your home clean and free of dust and pollutants will help to prevent respiratory infections and disorders such as emphysema.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

What You Can Expect After Undergoing Thoracic Ultrasound?

MBBS, MD - Pulmonary Medicine

What You Can Expect After Undergoing Thoracic Ultrasound?

When your doctor suspects of the presence of extra fluid in your lungs, you might be advised for a thoracic ultrasound. What is a thoracic ultrasound and why do you need it? With a thoracic ultrasound, your doctor will be able to look at everything in the thoracic cavity and can know if your lungs, heart, and other structures in the chest are working fine. The pulmonologists can efficiently determine the lung condition even in critically ill patients using a non-invasive ultrasound technique.

And, since the method is based on sound, there is no risk of exposure to potentially harmful ionizing radiation or nephron-toxic contrast dye in this case. Hence, a thoracic ultrasound has become the most preferred technique for conducting a preliminary examination or to further check and confirm a finding noted using other imaging techniques for thoracic diseases.

Reasons to have a chest ultrasound

  • The doctor usually refer an ultrasound when he or she can feel that there is some extra amount of fluid in your chest. The ultrasound can tell the physician the reason behind the deposition of excess liquid.
  • The ultrasound would help detect the type of fluid that is present in the chest, whether it is exudate that is caused due to inflammation, an infection, or lung cancer, or whether it is transudate that is a leakage from the lymph nodes or the blood vessel. It determines the movement of the diaphragm.
  • Chest ultrasound can be done in conjunction with other examinations like CT scan, MRI to evaluate the condition of the chest.
  • It has to be noted that, in certain circumstances such as severe obesity and barium in your esophagus, the procedure can give an inaccurate result. Hence, it is always advisable to talk with the health care provider and share your complete medical history before undergoing this procedure to prevent such occurrences.

After a Thoracic Ultrasound

  • After the results of the ultrasound are received, the doctor can detect what the condition of your chest is at the moment. Your doctor will also confirm if the lungs have collapsed or if there is water in the lungs, or excess fluid has deposited into the lungs.
  • Ultrasound can also reveal if you have pneumonia. A diagnosis like this does not take a long duration, and thus the ultrasound plays a significant role in expediting the treatment process.
  • There are no hard and fast regulations to follow after the ultrasound. The physician may recommend few instructions depending on your situation. In typical cases, there is no special preparation like fasting is required and you need not be sedated during the ultrasound as well.
  • A safe and painless method to detect the condition of the chest and the respiratory organs and the blood flow through the organs in your chest, a thoracic ultrasound is a preferred procedure that can help your doctor to diagnose your condition and decide upon the treatment method.

If in FNAC report it is mentioned as tuberculosis lymphadenitis then is it mandatory for excisional biopsy to be done for (Genexpert, AFB culture,& Histopathology)?

MBBS, MD - Pulmonary Medicine
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Well the diagnosis of TB requires certain specific pathology report. Better you put the exact wordings here and not just tuberculos lymphadenitis. If the FNAC report is confirmatory.(the exact report needs to be seen) and this is the first time such a diagnosis is made. New or first diagnosis. With no previous history of any form of TB or TB medicine intake. No past history of HIV or other co-existing poor immune states (for example cancer/diabetes/post transplant/certain immune suppressive medicine intake. Then treatment can be started straight away without theother tests like Excision biopsy for Gene Xpert, AFB culture or histopathology. If any of the of the other criteria as mentioned above are satisfied then go for biopsy.

The above cough with noisy breathing with sputum and chest pain is suggestive of acute Bronchitis. This may be associated with an obstruction in the air passages.(bronchospasm) and lead to chest pain also. However a chest xray, formal chest examination by a trained doctor and sputum test needs to be done. You may get in touch on private consult/audio consult for a better answer or remedy. Take care.

MBBS, MD - Pulmonary Medicine
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
This particular inhaler has peculiar for a sudden cough upon first usage. However the medicine gets adequately delivered despite the cough and you need not worry regarding poor lung deposition of the medicine. Continue the medicine. Its ok even if you are not able to hold your breath due to the cough. Take make sure that you take a deep breath. That will ensure good lung deposition of the medicine. Take care.

Can Spiromont FA tablet be taken in long term. I am having relief in my allergies with this tablet but can I continue to take it in long term.

MBBS, MD - Pulmonary Medicine

Can Spiromont FA tablet be taken in long term. I am having relief in my allergies with this tablet but can I continue...
This tablet contains a triple drug combination (fexofenadine+monteleukast+Acebrophyllin) which is not a recommended thing unless avoidable. Long term there are many side effects including cardiac, blood and platelet related and also a certain severe condition which is a rare side effect called Churg strauss syndrome with monteleukast. I suggest you to see a physician so that minimum required medicines are given on a long term basis. Please stop using such medicines directly from pharmacy stores without the opinion of a chest specialist.
