BREATHLESSNESS ‘sensation of shortness of breath’

write  connect


Breathlessness (also known as dyspnoea) refers difficulty breathing or sensation of shortness of breath, or degree of distress involved on activities of daily living. Breathlessness may occur in conjunction with other symptoms such as cough, chest pain, or tightness, and feeling of not enough oxygen along with fever too.
It can be caused by a variety of conditions affecting the lungs, heart and or general circulation. In these cases, breathlessness occurs due to a fall in levels of oxygen in blood, increased levels of carbon dioxide or just difficulty expanding lungs. It is often seen in emphysema, chronic airflow limitation, pneumonia (infection of lungs), asthma, heart failure, dementia, multiple sclerosis and AIDS. The larger number cancer patients also experience some degree of shortness of breath, even if primary cancer did not arise in lung, which normally worse on exertion or exercise. Breathlessness caused by diseases of the heart may become worse when you lie down.
In general, there are four main mechanisms that can make someone feel short of breath:

  • Decreased oxygen levels in the blood stream
  • Increased levels of carbon dioxide in the blood stream
  • Decreased ability of the lung to expand
  • Increased workload associated with normal breathing.

Causes: Though many possible causes for breathlessness and several different systems may be involved (not necessarily only lungs) making diagnosis somewhat difficult. However, the pattern of breathlessness and other symptoms can give clues to the likely cause. Some possible causes of breathlessness set out below:
Respiratory Causes:
Airway obstruction~ Obstruction of air passages in nose, mouth or throat can cause breathing difficulties. A characteristic example of obstructive lung disease is asthma. In this condition bronchi (large airways) narrow and clogged with lots of mucous. Other obstructive airway diseases include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, bronchiectasis and acute or chronic infection (bronchitis.
Lung tissue~ Damaged or reduced amount of functioning lung tissue; Lung tumors, infection (pneumonia) or fluid in lungs (pulmonary edema) can affect ability of airways to fill and transfer oxygen into blood stream. Restrictive lung diseases caused by fibrosis (e.g. radiation damage) also limit the ability of lungs to expand and exchange gases with blood.
Impaired ventilator movement~ Pain in chest, abnormalities in abdomen (that compress on lungs), deformities of chest wall (such as kyphosis) and weakness of respiratory muscles (caused by diseases such as multiple sclerosis) may all turn down the amount the lungs expand.
Pulmonary circulation~ Clots in lungs called pulmonary emboli (PE) cause a sudden onset of shortness of breath because blood is unable to reach the airspaces to pick up the oxygen needed by body. Pulmonary embolism classically presents with an acute onset of shortness of breath. Other symptoms include pleurisy chest pain, cough, haemoptysis and fever. Risk factor includes deep vein thrombosis, recent surgery, cancer and previous thromboembolism
Cardiac causes~ Heart failure, mitral valve disease, cardiomyopathy, pericarditis and many other cardiac problems often cause shortness of breath. This occurs, as heart is unable to pump enough blood to supply enough oxygen to rest of the body. In addition, heart problems can cause pooling of blood and fluid in lungs (pulmonary edema) which further limits gas exchange in lungs. Heart diseases usually first cause shortness of breath during exertion but later they develop characteristic types of breathlessness called orthopnoea (breathlessness whilst lying flat so you may find it more comfortable sleeping on several pillows) and paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnoea (PND; breathlessness that wakes you up from sleep).
Neoplastic or cancer~ Lung cancers often lead to breathlessness in later stages of disease. It occurs often as cancer invades or obstructs airways, causes lobar collapse or produces malignant pleural effusion (fluid around lung that prevents it from expanding). Lung cancer can also cause a condition called lymphangitis, which is thickening of lymphatic in lung. It may cause other symptoms such as chest pain or haemoptysis (coughing up blood) and is often associated with smoking. Cancers in other parts of body can also cause shortness of breath from cachexia, anemia or metastasis (spread) to the lung.
Anemia~ associated with a reduced amount of red blood cells in the bloodstream. These are primary cells involved in transporting oxygen from lungs to body. They do this by binding oxygen to a special protein called hemoglobin. Without enough blood cells, tissues do not receive adequate oxygen and the heart compensates by trying to pump more blood. This eventually can cause permanent cardiac damage and worsening of angina and congestive heart failure both of which may lead to dyspnoea.
Other causes:
Sometimes emotional distress or anxiety (nervousness) can cause you to breathe faster (hyperventilation) and make you feel short of breath, and neurological, musculoskeletal, endocrine, hematologic and psychiatric may also be the cause. This can create a vicious cycle as you can become more worried because you feel breathless which leads to more difficulty breathing. Obesity, hyperthyroidism and other metabolic problems can also cause you to become breathless. Fatigue is another possible cause because the level of effort required to breathe cannot be sustained. Therefore, a large number of conditions causing breathlessness that do not arise in lungs. In case of breathlessness, it is first important to rule out all the serious causes such as acute asthma, pulmonary embolus, pneumothorax, hemothorax, acute pulmonary edema and pneumonia, before considering some of the other causes.
Signs: Shortness of breath can manifest as a variety of signs and symptoms, due to large number of possible causes. However, most common frequent presentation is breathlessness and cough. Other common symptoms include cyanosis (blue discoloration often of fingers, toes or mouth due to an increase in the concentration of deoxygenated hemoglobin), chest pain, haemoptysis (coughing up blood), and abnormal sputum and altered breathing patterns. If you have a fever associated with your breathlessness you may have an infection of the lungs (pneumonia). All problems with breathing whether of sudden onset or long-term and regardless of other symptoms should be considered seriously. Although many of the possible causes are harmless and easily treated, you should still see your doctor for a thorough medical evaluation.
Self-care by breathing exercises such as slow, deep breathing, all the way to the abdomen. Relaxation methods too assist. If you experience episodes of breathlessness make sure you sit upright in a supportive chair, try to breathe slowly and deeply and administer oxygen and opioids as prescribed by the physician. If shortness of breath does not resolve make sure you seek medical attention.

In ASTHMA, conditions that may further worsen;

Patients with nocturnal or difficult-to-control asthma, treating acid re-flux may help relieve coughing and wheezing. Treatment of GERD involves elevating the head of bed, losing weight, avoiding spicy food, caffeine, alcohol, and cigarettes.
Allergic rhinitis asthma connection: There is a clear association between allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and asthma. Many patients recall developing asthma and nasal symptoms at or about same time. Others developed their asthma either before or after onset of their allergic rhinitis, it means involvement of allergic rhinitis. Patients with both conditions can expect to suffer more severe asthmatic attacks and require stronger medications to treat their asthma. The presence of asthma can easily be determined with pulmonary function tests.
Following are possible reasons why allergic rhinitis and asthma are related: nasal and bronchial membranes are made up of almost same type of tissue. The nerves of upper airway (nasal cavity) and lower airway (bronchial tubes) are connected. Both upper and lower airways are exposed to same external environment during breathing. When allergens reach nasal cavity, there is stimulation of nerve endings in nasal cavity. This stimulation causes reflex neural signals to be sent to tissues of both nasal cavity and lower airways. In nasal cavity, these signals cause accumulation of fluid and formation of mucus, while in bronchial tubes they cause bronchial constriction and possibly acute asthma. This is sometimes referred to as naso-bronchial reflex. Nasal congestion causes mouth breathing. During mouth breathing, air bypasses the nose. It is not filtered for allergens and irritating particles, and it is not warmed or humidified. This non-conditioned air is more likely to cause bronchial hyper reactivity and produce asthma symptoms. Mucus from nasal cavity may drip from back of nose into bronchial tubes, especially during sleep. This dripping mucus increases bronchial inflammation and causes episodes of asthma at night.
Sinusitis and asthma: An astounding 75% of severely asthmatic patients also has sinusitis. Additionally, asthmatic patients often report that their symptoms worsen when they develop sinusitis. Conversely, when sinusitis is treated, asthma improves. The reasons behind association of asthma and sinusitis are similar to those suggested for association between asthma and allergic rhinitis. The infected mucus from sinuses may drain into bronchial tubes, thereby causing bronchitis (sin bronchitis). The inflammation caused by mucus may worsen asthma. Greater insight into how these two conditions are related may allow better control or even cure of these common conditions.
Air pollution: Poor air quality is known to worsen asthma symptoms and increase exacerbation. Patients with asthma are at increased risk for symptoms when smog, soot, or ozone levels are significantly elevated. Indoor air pollution may also be a contributing factor. Research studies suggest that maintaining adequate ventilation and modifying household (removing carpets and drapes, using hypoallergenic mattress covers) may be enough. Some air-filtration systems may reduce some secondhand tobacco smoke, but no system can remove all harmful components from this smoke.
In effort to diagnose of bronchial asthma on following syndromes: Complete asthma characterized by severe respiratory dyspnea; asphyxia noted for sonorous distant role alterations in remission unavailable.

  • Wind and coldness penetrate into lungs
  • Hotness and sputum in lungs

ASTHMA deficiency type but outcome on palm!

Asthma is a common illness characterized by repeated attacks of paroxysmal dyspnea with wheezing, condition making it most common chronic childhood disease to date. During an asthma attack, lung’s airways (bronchioles) become inflamed, contraction and become lined with excessive amounts of mucous causing a restriction of airflow and making it very difficult to breathe. These attacks often triggered by pollution or some environmental irritant like cigarette smoke, household cleaning agents, or other toxins. Other common triggers include a change in air temperature or humidity; stress, allergies, and physical exertion.  If there is a history of hives, eczema or skin-related allergies are a common link between skin reactions and chronic asthma.
Symptoms of asthma generally include:

  • An audible ‘wheezing’ sound is characteristic of asthma, especially when exhaling
  • Blue lips, fingers
  • Chronic cold, persistent cough, especially at night or in early mornings
  • Fatigueness
  • Itchiness’ in throat
  • Pain or pressure felt in chest
  • Phlegmatic noise in throat
  • Restlessness
  • Shortness and difficult of breath
  • Tightness, pain or pressure felt in chest

Symptoms, causes generally include; combination of genetic and environmental factors, has a number of triggers which often include:
A number of perfumed products including deodorants, chemical detergents, fabric softeners and incense Upper respiratory infections colds, flu and sinusitis
Air pollution or irritants including car and factory emissions
Allergies to pollen, grass, certain foods, house dust mites, pets or any other environmental allergens.
Cold air
Physical exertion or exercise.
Reflux
Smoke
Stress, anxiety and other strong emotions
Sudden changes in air temperature or humidity
Preservatives
Causative factors are varied from the exogenous pathogenic factors to weakened body resistance. Asthma due to exogenous pathogenic factors is of excess type, and that due to weakened body resistance is of deficiency type.
Deficiency type:
Lungs ~ Prolonged and protracted cough may weaken and injure lungs vital. Deficiency may create shortness of breath and dyspnea.
Main manifestations: Short and rapid breathing, feeble voice, weak and low sound of coughing, sweating on exertion, pale tongue, pulse of deficiency type.
OR, new research its dryness
Kidney – Overwork and sexual indulgence can injure kidney. It can weaken body resistance and damages essential energy, failure to receive energy may create causative factor to rise asthma.
Main manifestations: Dyspnea on exertion after longstanding asthma, severe wheezing, in drawing of soft tissues of neck, short breath, lassitude and weakness, sweating, cold limbs, pale tongue. Long standing asthma affects kidney which is the source of energy. When it is in lowered functioning fails to receive energy and therefore dyspnea on exertion, severe wheezing and short breath appear. Exhausted kidney develops emaciation and lassitude, weakness and sweating.
To overcome the asthmatic symptoms, one has to do the followings;

  • Avoid common irritants such as spray deodorants, perfumed cleaning agents, and cigarette smoke, wherever possible.
  • Avoid sulfites and preservatives as these tend to trigger asthmatic reactions.
  • Exercise regularly.  Regular, gentle exercise will help strengthen over-all lung and heart functioning. If you are unfit, start off slowly, gradually increasing activity as the fitness levels increase.
  • Include Vitamin C, B6 and magnesium, as a lack of these nutrients, implicated in a number of inflammatory conditions, including asthma.
  • Reduce dust and pollen in household. During pollen season, try keeping windows closed and opt for an air conditioner instead. Dust can be reduced by replacing carpets with tiles or wooden floors, buying washable curtains and blinds, and vacuuming upholstered furniture and mattresses regularly.
  • Stress and anxiety are triggers, if then learn to manage with relaxation such as meditation, deep breathing exercises.
  • Treat colds and flu as soon as they become evident.
  • Wear a scarf over nose and mouth if have to go out in cold air and avoid exercising in cold air.asthma-D

ASTHMA When Excess Type!

ASTHMA When Excess Type!
Complexities at A Glance: Unusual symptoms of asthma includes:
anxiety
breathe shortness, difficult breathing, restlessness
concentration in difficult
cough persistent with cold especially either at night or early in the morning
fatigue
lips blue
phlegmatic noises
sighing
sleep in difficult
throat itchiness
tightness, pain or pressure felt in the chest
An audible ‘wheezing’ sound is characteristic of asthma, especially when exhaling. These symptoms can mimic other illnesses, such as heart failure, emphysema, asthmabronchiectasis, bronchial obstruction, vocal-cord dysfunction, and hypersensitivity reactions. Exercise is a common trigger for asthma and may cause symptoms in 80%-90% of asthmatics. Exercise-induced asthma is managed by choosing an appropriate sport, controlling the asthma prior to events, warming up, avoiding cold, stopping exercise during an asthma attack, cooling down after exercise, and preventing episodes with the use of inhalers and bronchodilators.
Some conditions can cause asthma to worsen, including GERD, allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, food allergies, and air pollution.
Excess type: Wind and Cold
It denotes due to invasion of wind cold, which impairs the smooth flow of the lung vital, that injures the skin and hair, and makes pores closed. Lungs vital fails to disperse and descend, leading to cough.
Main manifestations:
Cough with thin sputum, rapid breathing, accompanied by chills, fever, headache and absence of thirst, white tongue coating. Lungs main function is of respiration and is further associated with the skin and hair, which are first attacked by wind cold in invasive procedure.
