My baby is 5-1/2 months old. Some sound is coming from his breathing. He has no phelgm in chest. We have consulted child specialist He says that his breathing tube will expand as he grows more . He has checked his chest also But says that everything is normal. But sound is coming I do not know what to do. Please give opinion.

Hello. It might be a simple thing called Laryngotracheomalacia. .A condition in which the front wall of windpipe is a bit weak.Put some normal saline drops in both nostrils and let the baby lie in prone (Face down) position for few seconds. .If the sound goes off.Just wait & watch till 8-9 months of age.Vit. D supplements help. Get well soon

Dear lybrate-user, have a general health check up, it is good that you stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day.

lybrate-user, these reports only give an indication to the size of the red blood cells. They do not indicate the confirmation of any disease. The most likely reason of your dry hands is dehydration. This is not directly linked to your high BP, but surely intensified by it. Please begin to drink plenty of water through out the day. Make sure you are not ating packaged, fried, oily, spicy foods that will cause dehydration also. Try to apply simple sesame oil (til ka tel) on your hands 2 to 3 times a day after washing them, to reduce the irritation of dryness. Consume lots of fresh fruit and fresh vegetables in your diet. When there is low vitamin, hands and body can tend to feel dry an uncomfortable. Wish you a happy Diwali.

Dear Lybrateuser, your chest pain could be due to acidity, anxiety - follow some precautions, avoid spicy, fried & junk food, also not more than 1-2 cups of tea, coffee in a day, chew your food well, do not skip meals, have meals on time - take syrup Gelusil 2 teaspoonful half an hour after meals three times a day - take a tablet of Paracetamol 500 mg if pain is more - do regular exercise like walking, jogging for 20-30 min, also do yoga, deep breathing & meditation for 10-15 min daily in the morning to keep your mind & body fit if not much relief then do x- ray chest, ECG & consult a doctor.

Not necessary if you have learnt lessons to follow a healthy lifestyle. Genes from the side of your mother are half and genes play little role compared to wrong eating and sedentary lifestyle and smoke and alcohol and high uncontrolled bp and blood sugar with high cholesterol. Take care and don't live in fear of a heart attack. Keep basics mentioned above in control and do go for annual check ups.

He is drinking way too much for his age. There is no other way than to admit him to a rehabilitation center. He cannot be given that choice and he is not responsible at all. Your mom can easily approach his work center and speak to the HR department and get their support too: both financially and in terms of granting him at least 6 months leave to clean him up. Before that, she will need to approach the rehabilitation center about the entire process, fees, time period etc. and when they can come and pick him up. If she gives her consent, they will come one day when your father is sloshed and just pick him up and take him to the center, without any choice. If nothing is done, he is likely to end up in death, which incidentally seems to appear like his 'Rock​ Bottom'.

Earlier was talking Telma 40 now from a month on metocard xl 50 in morning q tablet but BP is still 145/77 in evening.

Earlier was talking Telma 40 now from a month on metocard xl 50 in morning q tablet but BP is still 145/77 in evening.
Many factors can affect blood pressure, including: 1) The amount of water and salt you have in your body 2) The condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels 3) Your hormone levels You are more likely to be told your blood pressure is too high as you get older. This is because your blood vessels become stiffer as you age. When that happens, your blood pressure goes up. High blood pressure increases your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, or early death. I read your query, by the information I have in hand my advice to you would be 1) Keep a BP daily record for at least one week 2) Basic tests should be one to rule out cardiac issues 3) unless any recent evaluation has been done I would advice these test ECG ECHO Lipid Profile TSH As for medication if your BP is higher than 140 /90 for more than half of the times then you will need to increase your blood pressure medications and start taking Telmisartan again.

Emphysema - Know The Life Expectancy and Stages!

MD, MBBS
Pulmonologist, Delhi
Emphysema - Know The Life Expectancy and Stages!

If you are facing difficulties in breathing, especially in the process of exhaling, you are suffering from emphysema. Emphysema is a condition in which the air sacs of the lungs are damaged and enlarged, causing breathlessness. It occurs as a result of several triggers, smoking being the most common one. Emphysema is a type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. People with this condition struggle to exhale, which implies that there is some obstruction in the air flow. This disease has no permanent cure but by quitting smoking, you can stop it from getting worse.

Stages
The progression and severity of emphysema occurs with the staging systems. The staging of the condition can help in developing a prognosis.

The Gold emphysema staging system
Gold is a major emphysema staging system created by a group known as the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease. The amount of air a patient can exhale forcefully in one second is determined during this stage. It is also referred to as the forced expiratory volume or FEV1.

The staging is as follows:

  • Stage 1: Mild emphysema (FEV1 greater than 80% of normal)
  • Stage 2: Moderate emphysema (FEV less than 80%, but more than 50% normal)
  • Stage 3: Severe emphysema (FEV lesser than 50%, but more than 30% normal)
  • Stage 4: Extremely severe emphysema. (FEV lesser than 30% of normal or lesser than 50% normal, with low levels of oxygen in the blood.

The BODE emphysema staging system
The condition affects several abilities. The BODE index, an acronym for BMI (body mass index), obstruction, dyspnea (breathlessness), exercise capacity (health index) is another staging system for emphysema in which the emphysema’s impact on several areas of life are measured. They include the following:

  1. Body mass index (B)
  2. Airflow limitation or obstruction (O), which is measured by pulmonary function tests
  3. Breathless or dyspnea (D), which is assessed thoroughly via a questionnaire
  4. Exercise capacity (E), which is measured to check how long a person with emphysema can walk in a span of six minutes

Life expectancy
The prognosis of emphysema is impossible to be determined in any person individually. The staging system helps to identify the severity of the condition, but the future cannot be predicted. Not many studies have been undertaken for the determination of the effects of emphysema on life expectancy. The best research that has been carried out included around 100 people, which is very less. The condition varies largely among people, even if they are in the same stage.

The statistics available on emphysema are not reliable enough for individuals who wish to know their life expectancy. It is considered that if a patient falls in a higher stage, his/her long-term life expectancy is less. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pulmonologist.
