Cardinal Signs & Symptoms of Respiratory Diseases

Hello and a very good day for all the Lybrate users, I am Dr Shobhit Bansal. I am chest physician, which are also called as pulmonologist that means I take care of your respiratory tract along with the diseases related to the respiratory tract, we also look after sleep and energy disorders. So what I am dealing or talking today is the 6 Cardinal symptoms of the respiratory system, 6 Cardinal diseases, symptoms of the respiratory diseases and it is not so that these Cardinal symptoms are present single. These can overlap and one should, whenever, any of these Cardinal symptoms are present or an overlap between these Cardinal symptoms is present. Then one should always consult a pulmonologist. Since these Cardinal symptoms reflect some or other form of the disease which is taking place in your respiratory system. Since we are dealing in the respiratory system, first, I would like to tell you a little bit about our respiratory system, it is divided into two parts the upper airways and the lower airways. The upper airway or the upper part of the respiratory system starts from the tip of the nose and it goes until the larynx, whereas the lower part of the respected that starts from the larynx and it goes until the lungs. All these symptoms which are basically these 6 Cardinal symptoms of the respective track, could either be because of the abnormality in the upper airway or they could be present because of the abnormality in the lower airways. So what are these 6 Cardinal symptoms for which you should always approach a pulmonologist which is a chest physician? No. 1 is a cough, cough yaani ki khansi aana. Now we all know and we also on the television also and even big-big celebrities these days tell you about a cough and if the duration of a cough is more than 15 days or so, then you should always visit a doctor. Now, but we should always know that what all could be the causes of a cough or is this cough really serious. A cough can arise from the upper airway or it can arise from the lower airway, if it arises from the upper airway, it could be the rhinitis, it could be the sinusitis, and it could be the Bronchitis or pharyngitis or laryngitis. But if it arises from the lower Railway then mostly there is pneumonia, tuberculosis, lower respiratory tract infection or some other form of diseases including interstitial lung diseases likewise. So and the next the cough could either be with the sputum production or it could be dry. When should we go to a doctor, now if somebody is having cough and he is taking warm water to drink taking, warm gargles, taking up a little bit of cough suppressant and if a cough does not go even after 3 days then it is always better to approach a doctor, by because they could be causes which could be a little serious maybe there is some underline pneumonia or there could be some sinusitis which needs to be treated. So always keep in mind that if a cough is more than 3 days and it is having sputum production or if it is not going, despite taking mild medications one or saline gargle, warm water to drink, steam inhalation, that means the home based remedies. If a cough is not going then one should definitely approach justification, this is the first cardinal symptom. The second cardinal symptom is the sputum production, yaani ki bulgum aana, what happens is whenever person develops cough, there is some underline disease and then along with the cough, the person also develops sputum, yaani ki bulgum aata hai. Production of sputum itself is not a serious disease, but if the sputum is foul smelly, if it is excessive in production or if it is a discoloured one that was in there it is yellow colour or with a rusty tinge or with a reddish view, then one should always consult pulmonologist. What are the causes of sputum production, first in the foremost causes the pneumonia then it could either be bacterial pneumonia or it could be tubercular pneumonia. The Other causes of sputum production include malignancy chronic bronchitis and so forth. So we are done with the two another third cardinal symptom of the respiratory tract is hemotypsis, hemoptysis means coming out of blood from the respiratory tract, yaani ki khansi mein se khoon aana. Any form of blood coming out from the respiratory tract is always a serious condition and one should always consult a pulmonologist. You may get a chest x ray done, you may get some basic other investigations done to rule out few conditions which might produce blood from the sputum and what are those conditions, either it could be tuberculosis, either could be trauma to the chest or it could malignancy. But there could be other causes as well. So any amount of blood even it is 1 ml if it is coming out of the airways one should always set pulmonologist. The fourth condition which requires immediate intervention, immediate attention is shortness of breath. If the person is feeling short of breath, that means normally we breath, we do not feel as if you are breathing. But when a person is short of breath, he feels difficulty while breathing. It is a sort of laboured breathing, saans lene mein dikkat hoti hai. So there are many conditions causing difficulty in breathing, either it could be cardiac or it could be respiratory. As a pulmonary physician, we mainly work on respiratory conditions which include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, interstitial lung diseases, pulmonary edema and sometimes pneumonia can also cause shortness of breath. Any form of shortness of breath, which occurs when a person to do any exertional activity any of the exertional activity and if you are feeling short of breath saans foolti hai thoda bhi kaam karne se, jo pehle se jayada hai then one should always approach chest physician or a pulmonologist. The fourth cardinal symptoms is production of wheez, wheez is whistling sensation from the respiratory tract message, saans mein se seetion jaisi aawaz aana jisko hum weez kehte hain. Most of the physicians and pulmonologist feel that if person wheezes it is asthma, but there could be other condition also in which a person may produce weez, which includes interstitial lung diseases and other obstructive airway diseases like foreign body or tumor in the respiratory tract. So if a person is having weez and is facing difficulty breathing, one should always approach a pulmonologist. The fifth condition which requires immediate intervention or is one of the Cardinal symptom is the chest pain, chest pain should always be taken seriously. Why a chest pain should be taken seriously because there are many conditions causing chest pain, but two types of chest pain need to be seriously taken. One which is a retrosternal that means is present in the middle of the chest and giving you are sharp stabbing feeling. Acute piercing pain hai, agar bahut joro se pain hai chati mein, so that could be of cardiology, you should always visit a cardiologist. But if it is aching pain, dard ho raha hai, side mein ho raha hai, mehsoos ho raha hai bhri-bhri pan halka-halka dard, it is a chest pain of pulmonology, one should always visit a pulmonologist. What are the conditions causing chest pain of pulmonaryology, it is pneumonia, tuberculosis, melingnancy, pural infision and there a lot of conditions causing chest pain of pulmonaryology. So we have talked about all these kind and symptoms of the respiratory tract, hope you people got aware with this and would definitely like to visit a pulmonologist. You can also consult me, I am a chest physician again and I sit in the Dipakshi hospital which is located in Sector 33 Noida.

Simple Tips To Deal With Pulmonary Fibrosis

Simple Tips To Deal With Pulmonary Fibrosis

Pulmonary fibrosis is a condition where the lung tissue is scarred or damaged. This damaged or thickened tissue builds with time thereby interfering with normal respiration. There are multiple factors that could lead to pulmonary fibrosis. The damage is irreparable and hence, it needs to be dealt with appropriately. Here are certain tips that can help deal with pulmonary fibrosis.

1. Exercise-
Do not start with major exercises right away as this could cause you to run out of breath and strain your body. A small routine comprising of simple exercises or light jogging can certainly help. Doing this on a regular basis will allow you to feel a healthy difference in your breathing.

2. Diet-
Creating a diet chart might be easy but the difficult part is sticking to it. Make sure that you plan a diet that is not very complex to maintain and follow. It is important to consume good amounts of proteins and Vitamin D. Increase your water intake and avoid junk food as much as possible. If you can, consider adding fish to your diet.

3. Breathing-
Since pulmonary fibrosis largely affects your lungs, it causes major breathing problems. Hence, it is important that you regularly follow certain breathing exercises. It is advisable to keep a track of your breath. Consult a doctor for suggested breathing exercises or try some on your own to decide which ones are the most comfortable for you.


4. Meditation-
While some people, especially the youth, may consider meditation a waste of time, it is one of the best ways for steady respiration. If your mind is calm, so is your breathing. Meditation does not mean chanting words or reading mantras. It simply means to be one with yourself. Meditation is the key to keep your mind at peace. You just need 10-15 minutes each day, with your own thoughts, and you can see the difference yourself.

5. Vaccinations and medications-
All the above methods can be practiced on your own. They are safe and you need not necessarily consult a doctor or a physician for following them. However, there are certain vaccinations or medications that can be considered in case the symptoms of pulmonary fibrosis go out of hand. It is recommended to consult your doctor to know more about these options.

In addition to all these tips, it is most important to surround yourself with positive, caring people who can help you anytime and anywhere. Having moral support can help you fight through the toughest times. Although it is difficult to get completely rid of pulmonary fibrosis, the above tips can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle and deal with it better.

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

Effects Of Smoking - How Smoking Affects Your Lungs?

Effects Of Smoking - How Smoking Affects Your Lungs?

Smoking can have adverse effects on your health that may result in a number of diseases, and also can degrade the overall health condition. Thus, every packet of cigarette comes with the warning “Smoking is injurious to health”. Yet, for those who are habituated to it, it can be extremely difficult to heed the caution and quit.

If you are one of those smokers contemplating quitting, here are some of the compelling reasons to embark on the road to good health immediately. Read on to know about the long-term effects that smoking can have on your lungs:

1. The cleaning of the lungs gets disrupted
Every time you smoke, the harmful chemicals that cigarette contains lead to damaging your breathing and scaring your lungs in some way. As a result of smoking, the cleaning system of the lungs is greatly disrupted. The lungs have ‘Cilia' or broom like hairs that play a crucial role in cleaning the lungs. When you start smoking, the functioning of the cilia starts to slow down, and this goes on for several hours, interfering with the functioning of the lungs.

2. Increases the inflammation as well as irritates
Just like humans age, so do the lungs. With aging, it's very normal for your lungs to not function as effectively as they used to once. However, smoking makes the aging of the lungs faster. Plus, the airways of the lungs also get inflamed and irritated by smoking and as a result become narrower and disrupt the normal air flow.

3. Tissue damage and poor immunity become evident
Smoking not only injures the lung tissues but also causes the immunity power of the lungs to decrease. While on one hand, the damaged tissues lead to decreased blood vessels and air spaces in the lungs, which disrupts the normal oxygen level in the blood, on the other hand, smoking impairs the natural defense power of the lungs, making the lungs more prone to critical lungs condition.

4. It may cause a number of lung conditions
Ranging from asthma, wheezing, to coughs and colds, smoking can lead to serious lungs diseases such as emphysema, breathing issues, breathlessness, pneumonia, chronic bronchitis and even lung cancer. Smoking can also cause the debilitating and progressive disease, COPD or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease to develop.

No matter whether you smoke a pipe or a cigar, as long as they contain cancer-causing chemicals in them, smoking poses a serious threat to your health.

Winter Breathing Problems!

Winter Breathing Problems!

Seasonal changes can have a great impact on one's health. The onset of winters, in particular, can be quite harsh and difficult for people with chronic lung problems such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or COPD, Asthma, and a host of similar lung and respiratory problems resulting in breathing problems. Without proper precaution, the condition will only deteriorate further, going from bad to worse. In this article, we will discuss why winter is often punishing for people with breathing problems along with the necessary precautionary measures.

During winters, the air is cold and dry, with reduced moisture and humidity which can trigger irritation and constriction of the airways (a condition known as Bronchospasm) leading to breathing troubles (there can be shortness of breath). During winters we all try and maintain a warm indoor temperature. When we go outside, we are suddenly exposed to the cold and dry air. This sudden temperature fluctuation can also wreak havoc triggering spasms and irritation of the lungs which interferes with the normal breathing.

People with Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Acute Bronchitis or Emphysema (a type of COPD, whereby there are over-inflation and damage of the alveoli resulting in shortness of breath) should be extra careful. Winter is a time when the microbial infections (viral, bacterial, fungal infections, to name a few) like cold, flu, are on a rise. The infections can trigger further irritation and inflammation of the lungs, worsening the situation significantly.


Preventive and precautionary measures

  1. Breathing problems can be controlled and managed with elan by following some simple yet effective preventive measures.
  2. Asthma patients or people who have breathing problems should always keep the inhaler (Bronchodilator) and the medications handy. However, those using bronchodilators (inhalers) should use it at least thirty minutes before stepping outside.
  3. If the temperature is cold and dry outside, use a scarf to cover your nose and mouth while going outside. Use of a cold air face mask can go a long way to avert the harmful effects of temperature changes on the airways and the lungs.
  4. During winters, the use of a Humidifier can work wonders to keep the air inside the house moist and humid. However, while using a humidifier, make sure the water you are using is demineralized or distilled to avoid bacteria from thriving into the humidifier. Also, make it a habit the clean the humidifier at regular intervals.
  5. Keep yourself warm and eat warm foods. Enrich your diet with citrus fruits and healthy vegetables to keep the various infections and cold at bay. Light or moderate exercise is a great way to keep the body warm.
  6. Incense sticks and cigarette smokes act as catalysts aggravating the breathing problem further. Keep away from such triggers as much as you can.

These can overlap and one should, whenever, any of these Cardinal symptoms are present or an overlap between these Cardinal symptoms is present. Then one should always consult a pulmonologist. Since these Cardinal symptoms reflect some or other form of the disease which is taking place in your respiratory system. Since we are dealing in the respiratory system, first, I would like to tell you a little bit about our respiratory system, it is divided into two parts the upper airways and the lower airways. The upper airway or the upper part of the respiratory system starts from the tip of the nose and it goes until the larynx, whereas the lower part of the respected that starts from the larynx and it goes until the lungs. All these symptoms which are basically these 6 Cardinal symptoms of the respective track, could either be because of the abnormality in the upper airway or they could be present because of the abnormality in the lower airways. So what are these 6 Cardinal symptoms for which you should always approach a pulmonologist which is a chest physician? No. 1 is a cough, cough yaani ki khansi aana. Now we all know and we also on the television also and even big-big celebrities these days tell you about a cough and if the duration of a cough is more than 15 days or so, then you should always visit a doctor. Now, but we should always know that what all could be the causes of a cough or is this cough really serious. A cough can arise from the upper airway or it can arise from the lower airway, if it arises from the upper airway, it could be the rhinitis, it could be the sinusitis, and it could be the Bronchitis or pharyngitis or laryngitis. But if it arises from the lower Railway then mostly there is pneumonia, tuberculosis, lower respiratory tract infection or some other form of diseases including interstitial lung diseases likewise. So and the next the cough could either be with the sputum production or it could be dry. When should we go to a doctor, now if somebody is having cough and he is taking warm water to drink taking, warm gargles, taking up a little bit of cough suppressant and if a cough does not go even after 3 days then it is always better to approach a doctor, by because they could be causes which could be a little serious maybe there is some underline pneumonia or there could be some sinusitis which needs to be treated. So always keep in mind that if a cough is more than 3 days and it is having sputum production or if it is not going, despite taking mild medications one or saline gargle, warm water to drink, steam inhalation, that means the home based remedies. If a cough is not going then one should definitely approach justification, this is the first cardinal symptom. The second cardinal symptom is the sputum production, yaani ki bulgum aana, what happens is whenever person develops cough, there is some underline disease and then along with the cough, the person also develops sputum, yaani ki bulgum aata hai. Production of sputum itself is not a serious disease, but if the sputum is foul smelly, if it is excessive in production or if it is a discoloured one that was in there it is yellow colour or with a rusty tinge or with a reddish view, then one should always consult pulmonologist. What are the causes of sputum production, first in the foremost causes the pneumonia then it could either be bacterial pneumonia or it could be tubercular pneumonia. The Other causes of sputum production include malignancy chronic bronchitis and so forth. So we are done with the two another third cardinal symptom of the respiratory tract is hemotypsis, hemoptysis means coming out of blood from the respiratory tract, yaani ki khansi mein se khoon aana. Any form of blood coming out from the respiratory tract is always a serious condition and one should always consult a pulmonologist. You may get a chest x ray done, you may get some basic other investigations done to rule out few conditions which might produce blood from the sputum and what are those conditions, either it could be tuberculosis, either could be trauma to the chest or it could malignancy. But there could be other causes as well. So any amount of blood even it is 1 ml if it is coming out of the airways one should always set pulmonologist. The fourth condition which requires immediate intervention, immediate attention is shortness of breath. If the person is feeling short of breath, that means normally we breath, we do not feel as if you are breathing. But when a person is short of breath, he feels difficulty while breathing. It is a sort of laboured breathing, saans lene mein dikkat hoti hai. So there are many conditions causing difficulty in breathing, either it could be cardiac or it could be respiratory. As a pulmonary physician, we mainly work on respiratory conditions which include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, interstitial lung diseases, pulmonary edema and sometimes pneumonia can also cause shortness of breath. Any form of shortness of breath, which occurs when a person to do any exertional activity any of the exertional activity and if you are feeling short of breath saans foolti hai thoda bhi kaam karne se, jo pehle se jayada hai then one should always approach chest physician or a pulmonologist. The fourth cardinal symptoms is production of wheez, wheez is whistling sensation from the respiratory tract message, saans mein se seetion jaisi aawaz aana jisko hum weez kehte hain. Most of the physicians and pulmonologist feel that if person wheezes it is asthma, but there could be other condition also in which a person may produce weez, which includes interstitial lung diseases and other obstructive airway diseases like foreign body or tumor in the respiratory tract. So if a person is having weez and is facing difficulty breathing, one should always approach a pulmonologist. The fifth condition which requires immediate intervention or is one of the Cardinal symptom is the chest pain, chest pain should always be taken seriously. Why a chest pain should be taken seriously because there are many conditions causing chest pain, but two types of chest pain need to be seriously taken. One which is a retrosternal that means is present in the middle of the chest and giving you are sharp stabbing feeling. Acute piercing pain hai, agar bahut joro se pain hai chati mein, so that could be of cardiology, you should always visit a cardiologist. But if it is aching pain, dard ho raha hai, side mein ho raha hai, mehsoos ho raha hai bhri-bhri pan halka-halka dard, it is a chest pain of pulmonology, one should always visit a pulmonologist.

Sir, my son (14 years old) is suffering from extra pulmonary tuberculosis for which he has been put on anti tb medication for last 16 days. He is taking Rcinex 450 in morning empty stomach however he complains that the pill gets stuck in his throat even after gulping two glasses of water. So as to swallow it he has started taking a slice of apple. My question is 1. Does he need to take all the medicine at the same time daily 2. Can he take a apple/a biscuit to swallow the Rcinex.

MBBS, DNB - Pulmonary Medicine, Allergy & Sleep Disorders

Dear Sir, First of all he need not take all medicines together. Rcinex is empty stomach whereas rest all are after having something to eat. Second he can take an apple slice or banana or a biscuit to take the pill of rcinex which is absolutely ok. If it still stuck in his throat he might as well use these medicine in powder form which comes as sachet of combination of all four drugs for eg 4sachet or any other brand. You can give a call to discuss more. Thanks a lot.
