Respiratory Care

Respiratory organs in the body work in coordination to ensure gas exchange in all parts of the body. Needless to say it is one of the most vital functions of the human body. The respiratory tract is constantly exposed to germs. These organs are affected by a number of diseases like bronchitis, asthma attacks, pneumonia, tuberculosis, etc.

One of the most common symptoms of respiratory disorders is difficult or painful breathing, cough, wheezing and even chest pain. If untreated these symptoms could lead to complications. It is possible to manage and ease these symptoms by use of nebulizers and inhalers. Nebulizers are used to administer medication to people in the form of a mist inhaled into the lungs whereas commonly used inhalers also work to release medicine in the mouth in the form of aerosol spray. Hence it is very important to keep a track of these vital signs.

The vital capacity is the maximum amount of air a person can expel from the lungs after a maximum inspiration. A peak flow meter is a small, hand-held device used to monitor a person’s vital capacity. It measures the airflow through the bronchi and thus the degree of obstruction in the airways. There are other ways of comforting respiratory unease by use of humidifiers that increase humidity (moisture) in a single room or in the entire home. All these products are readily available in the Aster Pharmacy and are very simple and convenient to use.
