From the first cold, what this viral infection bronchiolitis affects children under two years.
Causes and consequences of bronchiolitis
Babies 3 to 9 months are most vulnerable to bronchiolitis for anatomical reasons. Their bronchi and bronchioles are narrower, viral inflammation creates a closure that impedes the flow of air. This causes significant difficulty in breathing. The origin of the viral assault is respiratory syncytial or RSV virus. Often the disease begins with rhinitis, quickly followed by a coughing fit. There is also difficulty in breathing, and a slight fever.
This difficulty in breathing may cause weakness of the infant. It also causes eating disorders. Some children have several sets of bronchiolitis until the age of two years. From the third occurrence, it is called infantile asthma. The evolution to asthma in adulthood depends on the atopic or family history of asthma, eczema or allergies. Bronchiolitis is, in most cases, a mild infection. If hospitalization is sometimes necessary, spontaneous recovery is the most common finding.
Prevent and cure of bronchiolitis
These measures do not preserve cons bronchiolitis, but limit the risks among children less than three months. You must follow simple rules of hygiene: wash your hands in 30 seconds with soap and water before you take care of baby. Do not kiss him on the face and get used to ventilate the room. If the cold, clear his nose with saline. Passive smoking will only worsen his case, and then it is best to smoke away from baby, outside the house.
To effectively treat bronchiolitis, the best solution is chest physiotherapy. It is to help the child to clutter the airways. The actions aim to increase the expiratory flow. Pressure exerted on the thorax and abdomen during expiration resulted in tracheal secretions. Then they go back into the bronchial tree. They will be evacuated through the mouth by breathing. The baby’s chest is more flexible and does not suffer from this manipulation. Furthermore, homeopathy may well be associated with physical therapy to help prevent recurrences.
