Predict and measure his asthma

The peak expiratory flow rate is a measure of the breath when air soon resumes bronchus. Simple, easy and fast, this measure is necessary to follow the evolution of the disease and adapt the treatment. Regular measurements can also predict a crisis.

The dynamics of the breath is an essential parameter in asthma because the reduction of the calibre of the bronchi characterizing the asthma attack must be quantifiable right away. The comparative measurement of respiratory volumes as well as respiratory force in crisis and in normal times is therefore a necessity for monitoring and the adaptation of an asthma treatment.

Principle (e) t use on peak flow-meter
The peak expiratory flow (PEF) is a measure of the breath through the air flow that a subject is able to expel from his lungs as soon as possible during a forced expiration. In crisis, this throughput decreases significantly. Continue reading “Predict and measure his asthma”

The peculiarities of child diabetes

The increase in the number of diabetics is all age classes. Contrary to belief, the young are not spared. During the past ten years, there are 75% more patients before the age of 4. Discover the essential childhood diabetes.

The number of cases of diabetes type 1 (insulin-dependent diabetes) varies greatly in children from one country to the other. The incidence is of 0.1 per 100 000 children in China and 36.8 per 100,000 in Finland. In France, this disease is one in 1,000 births. Nearly 10,000 children under 15 years are diabetic.

 Child diabetes

More and more children affected
Between 1988 and 1997, there was a surge of cases of insulin-dependent diabetes in children: 75% increase in less than 4 years and 30% for those aged 4-14. Conversely, the impact does not seem to grow among 15-19 year-olds. This development is not without consequence, it instead represents a challenge for medicine. Indeed, with diabetes starting in childhood, the length of follow-up is longer and therefore the risk of complications is more important. In addition, generally reserved to the adult type 2 diabetes affects more and more adolescents due to the increasing number of children with obesity.

A pill to stop smoking

Canadian researchers report having found a pill that would allow the smoker to finish with the cigarette. Already used against psoriasis, the reflect revealed other properties: it slows the metabolism of nicotine and would be thus a true “magic potion” against smoking addiction.

Nicotine establishes and maintains the smoking addiction. Thus, the principle of various treatments for smoking cessation (patches, gum, etc.) aims to progressively reduce the daily dose of nicotine in the blood of the smoker. But a Canadian study could lead to the development of a new therapeutic pathway.

Limit the urge to smoke
After a cigarette smoker absorbs the nicotine that is found in his blood. Nicotine is then metabolized in blood and its concentration decreases. Below a certain threshold, the smoker is apt to turn a cigarette. “The principle (developed in this study) is different from what is currently used” said Edward M. Sellers, Director of the study.

Vasomotor disorders of extremities or disease

What is it?
Ends (disease(PVD)) vasomotor disorders are the result of abnormalities in the neurological control of fluctuations in size of small vessels.

Arterial blood arrives at the ends in arterioles more fine which become capillaries. These capillaries are gradually transformed in venules and veins the blood return. The capillary network is what separates the arterial system of the venous system. This vascular network is not inert.

asomotor disorders of extremities

The sizes of the vessels change constantly depending on very many factors through the intervention of the vasomotor nerves that operate independently of the will. Disruption of this system of vasoconstriction and vasodilation causes a peripheral vascular disease. Raynaud’s disease and Raynaud’s syndrome.
