Disorders of nasal breathing (when the nose does not breathe)attributed to common pathologies that cause serious discomfort, reduce the quality of life, cause the occurrence of various complications. Disturbances in the nose and its congestion lead to headaches, sinusitis, chronic rhinitis, polyposis, pharyngitis, snoring, vegeto-vascular dystonia, chronic bronchitis, fatigue, depression, neuroses, brain damage, retardation in children of mental development.
It is especially painful to look at a child whose nose does not breathe. How to treat a cold in infants?
If the nose does not breathe in the infant, then hisshould be washed with a solution of chamomile, salt water - a teaspoon (or even slightly less) of salt in a glass of water. To perform the procedure, you should recruit a full suction pump and inject into the baby's nostril. Clamp the second nostril should not, it is through it will come out snot. Keep the baby on the sink face down (you can not do a similar procedure on the back of a child!). If the runny nose lasts a long time, you'll need to use a collargol or protargol to dig in. The apartment must have sufficient humidity.
Physicians explain the occurrence of the common cold with infectiousdiseases (in most cases). Thus, the body tries to stop the spread of infection, secreting mucus, which contains a lot of virus neutralizing substances.
The main task if the nose does not breathe whenInfectious rhinitis, is to prevent the mucus from drying out. In such cases, humidified cool clean air will be required. The child should be given a regular drink. When the mucus dries out, the baby will not be able to use the nose to breathe and will begin to breathe through the mouth. As a result, the runny nose will lead to a thickening of the mucus and its drying in the lumen of the bronchi, which can become the beginning of bronchitis or pneumonia.
The simplest and most accessible tool usedfor the control of the common cold, is a normal saline solution, which is water with a slight addition of salt. If the baby does not breathe through the nose, then you can instill it with this solution at any frequency, injecting 3-4 drops into each nostril, there is no need to fear an overdose.
Catarrh of a baby can also be cured withekteritsida, oil liquid with a weak disinfectant effect. Included in the composition of the oil thin layer covers the nasal mucosa of the child and prevents drying. Vaseline or olive oil, tocopherol or retinol (oily solutions of vitamin E or A) will help cope with the common cold. These solutions are administered 2 drops every 2 hours. They can also be combined with saline. All of the above methods have no side effects.
Children whose nose does not breathe as a resultinfectious diseases, it is not necessary to stuff with vasoconstrictor drops (nazole, galazolin, sonorin, naphthyzine). If the nose does not breathe during pregnancy, then treatment is best suited, as for a baby. A runny nose in a child will pass by itself, if it does not interfere.
Nasal breathing can be difficult on otherreasons. Disturbances occur with an increase in nasal concha as a result of allergic, vasomotor, hypertrophic rhinitis. Breathing is complicated with curvatures of the nasal septum, polyps, adenoids, traumatic deformities of the external part of the nose.
In such cases, it will take quite a differenttreatment. Otolaryngologists have accumulated a lot of experience in restoring nasal breathing. In each case, their treatment can be prescribed for an individual examination of the doctor. Thus, vasomotor rhinitis, resulting from the dependence on drops in the nose, is eliminated by cauterization of nasal concha (submucosal cauterization), laser, plasma-argon, and radio wave effects. Curvature of the septum is corrected only in adulthood by the removal of defective fragments of bone or cartilage. If both diseases are combined under stationary conditions, a combined intervention is performed to eliminate these anomalies. Polyposis of the nose is treated by the method of endoscopic polypoetmoidotomy, which gives a longer-term effect in comparison with conventional methods (polytomy, laser evaporation).
The most important thing to remember is that for any violations of nasal breathing, the child (and the adult) needs to seek medical help, and not prescribe the medication alone.</ p>
