What is ACUTE SEVERE ASTHMA? What does ACUTE SEVERE ASTHMA mean? ACUTE SEVERE ASTHMA meaning - ACUTE SEVERE ASTHMA definition - ACUTE SEVERE ASTHMA explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Acute severe asthma (also referred to in Latin as status asthmaticus, or asthmatic status) is an acute exacerbation of asthma that does not respond to standard treatments of bronchodilators (inhalers) and steroids. Symptoms include chest tightness, rapidly progressive dyspnea (shortness of breath), dry cough, use of accessory respiratory muscles, labored breathing, and extreme wheezing. It is a life-threatening episode of airway obstruction and is considered a medical emergency. Complications include cardiac and/or respiratory arrest. It is characterized histologically by smooth muscle hypertrophy and basement membrane thickening. An exacerbation (attack) of asthma is experienced as a worsening of asthma symptoms with breathlessness and cough (often worse at night). In acute severe asthma, breathlessness may be so severe that it is impossible to speak more than a few words (inability to complete sentences). On examination, the respiratory rate may be elevated (more than 25 breaths per minute), and the heart rate may be rapid (110 beats per minute or faster). Reduced oxygen saturation levels (but above 92%) are often encountered. Examination of the lungs with a stethoscope may reveal reduced air entry and/or widespread wheeze. The peak expiratory flow can be measured at the bedside; in acute severe asthma the flow is less than 50% a person's normal or predicted flow. Very severe acute asthma (termed "near-fatal" as there is an immediate risk to life) is characterised by a peak flow of less than 33% predicted, oxygen saturations below 92% or cyanosis (blue discoloration, usually of the lips), absence of audible breath sounds over the chest ("silent chest"), reduced respiratory effort and visible exhaustion or drowsiness. Irregularities in the heart beat and abnormal lowering of the blood pressure may be observed. Inflammation in asthma is characterized by an influx of eosinophils during the early-phase reaction and a mixed cellular infiltrate composed of eosinophils, mast cells, lymphocytes, and neutrophils during the late-phase (or chronic) reaction. The simple explanation for allergic inflammation in asthma begins with the development of a predominantly helper T2 lymphocyte–driven, as opposed to helper T1 lymphocyte–driven, immune milieu, perhaps caused by certain types of immune stimulation early in life. This is followed by allergen exposure in a genetically susceptible individual. Specific allergen exposure (e.g., dust mites) under the influence of helper T2 lymphocytes leads to B-lymphocyte elaboration of immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies specific to that allergen. The IgE antibody attaches to surface receptors on airway mucosal mast cells. One important question is whether atopic individuals with asthma, in contrast to atopic persons without asthma, have a defect in mucosal integrity that makes them susceptible to penetration of allergens into the mucosa. Subsequent specific allergen exposure leads to cross-bridging of IgE molecules and activation of mast cells, with elaboration and release of a vast array of mediators. These mediators include histamine; leukotrienes C4, D4, and E4; and a host of cytokines. Together, these mediators cause bronchial smooth muscle constriction, vascular leakage, inflammatory cell recruitment (with further mediator release), and mucous gland secretion. These processes lead to airway obstruction by constriction of the smooth muscles, edema of the airways, influx of inflammatory cells, and formation of intraluminal mucus. In addition, ongoing airway inflammation is thought to cause the airway hyperreactivity characteristic of asthma. The more severe the airway obstruction, the more likely ventilation-perfusion mismatching will result in impaired gas exchange and hypoxemia. Interventions include intravenous (IV) medications (e.g magnesium sulfate), aerosolized medications, and positive-pressure therapy, including mechanical ventilation. Multiple therapies may be used simultaneously to rapidly reverse the effects of status asthmaticus and reduce permanent damage of the airways. Intravenous and aerosolized treatments such as corticosteroids and methylxanthines are often given. According to a new randomized control trial ketamine and aminophylline are also effective in children with acute asthma who responds poorly to standard therapy.

Bench to Bedside: Asthma Heterogeneity, Part 1 - Prescott Woodruff
https://www.ibiology.org/human-disease/airway-inflammation/ In the first of these lectures, Prescott Woodruff explains that while asthma may be episodic in nature, it is a chronic disorder characterized by airway hypersensitivity and bronchial inflammation. Although asthma is a heterogeneous disease, treatment is typically based upon clinical severity rather than the underlying molecular phenotype. Woodruff describes how he and Dr. Arron and their colleagues were able to distinguish two distinct groups of asthma patients, one of with higher levels of T helper 2 cytokines and one with lower levels, by measuring specific gene expression patterns. Patients with different levels of Th2 cytokines responded differently to inhaled steroid treatment. This finding suggests that developing biomarkers that could indicate whether patients were Th2-high or low would help guide anti-inflammatory treatment. In part 2, Joe Arron reiterates the fact that asthma patients present with varying degrees of airway inflammation. Characterizing this heterogeneity objectively and consistently can be challenging. Arron describes how he and Woodruff, together with their collaborators, were able to determine that the serum level of a protein called periostin was a candidate predictive diagnostic biomarker for patients who might benefit from novel anti-inflammatory drugs including an IL13 inhibitor and an IgE inhibitor. Periostin is currently one of the biomarkers used to select patients for enrollment in clinical trials for two drugs candidates under development by Genentech. About Prescott Woodruff Dr. Woodruff earned his MD from Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons and completed his residency at Massachusetts General Hospital. He did a research fellowship in respiratory epidemiology at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and also earned a Master's of Public Health from Harvard University. After completing a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, he joined the faculty at UCSF in 2002. Currently, Woodruff is an Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine. Research in Woodruff's lab is focused on a number of lung diseases including asthma and chronic pulmonary lung disease. His lab investigates the distinct molecular phenotypes underlying these diseases and the molecular mechanisms of airway inflammation. They are also working to develop blood-based diagnostic markers for specific lung disease phenotypes. Woodruff has collaborated with Joe Arron since 2006.

Severe Asthma GlaxoSmithKline
Asthma is a chronic lung disease that causes inflammation and narrowing of the airways. People with asthma suffer from recurrent periods of shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing and chest tightness. Symptoms can occur at any time, including asthma attacks or ‘exacerbations’ during the night. People with severe asthma struggle to control their day-to-day asthma symptoms and may continue to have attacks, even when they are taking high doses of prescribed medications.

Candida Case Study 7: Val With Chronic Asthma
http://www.canxida.com/ - Premium Range of Dietary Supplements for Candida Yeast Infections. Val came to my room complaining of severe fatigue, burning and itchy ears, eyes burning and watery, and an irritable burning throat and many digestive problems. On top of her chronic and depilating fatigue, Val had childhood asthma and was placed on steroid drugs for just over 60 years and remained on them for almost 50 years. She'd spent countless hours over the years in various hospitals and she also had two epileptic fits. Finally, after consulting with more than 30 doctors, she decided she was going to have no more steroids after almost 50 years of continuous drug use. Ventolin or salbutamol was taken for 25 years and other drugs like antibiotics were routinely prescribed on and off. Over the past 30 years, her sinus, nose, eyes and ears were getting worse by the day, but still the doctors persisted with the steroid drug recommendations. It is early days for Val, but things are already starting to look gray. I first recommended that all drugs be neatly flushed down the lavatory from this point forward and that we started Val on an adrenal fatigue treatment program. The results have been incredible, and it just goes to show that no matter how old the patient is, how debilitated they are or how screwed up they've become due to over chronic prescribing of drugs, the body keeps on maintaining the ability to restore its vital function. After six months of adrenal treatment, we have a staggering 40 percent improvement. But as I suspect, Val will need adrenal support for up to two to three years or even more to get a full recovery. If you look at this case carefully, I commended Val quite clearly. She's a remarkable lady, a very nice person, and I saw her on numerous occasions. This poor woman had very bad thrush of the throat, but also she had vaginal thrush. She had digestive thrush. She had itchy skin. She was a wreck. She was a train wreck this woman. Completely screwed up on drugs. You may be on medication for many years yourself, particularly steroid medications. Steroid medications are designed to suppress the immune function, whether you're using topical on the skin, hydrocortisone for conditions like dermatitis, eczema, or psoriasis. Whether it's an inhaled steroid, those puffers for asthma. Whether it's an ingested steroid like prednisone for an auto immune disease like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis or any one of the hundred other diseases you might have that are auto immune related. These drugs are crap! They're absolute crap because they wreck your body. If you keep on them long enough, they're going to completely screw your system up. In the short term, they may be of benefit, but long term they're going to destroy your body. It's just not worth going there. What happens when you suppress the immune system long enough is you're a sitting duck for all kinds of infections. In Val, when she came to see me, she was literally rotating five or six antibiotics all the time in a rotating fashion. As her body would resist one, she'd switch to another one. I mean that's just crazy. That's like going from a Master Card to a Visa Card, all these damn cards, until you've maxed everything out and then you overmax things. Poor patients. I feel so sorry for so many people out there that are victims of these stupid drug crazed medical treatment regimes that they fall under. Long term, it's almost like Russian roulette to me. You're going to die. It's only a matter of how many bullets have you got in the chamber. In Val's case, my first aim was to try to boost her immune system up as much as I could, and I found that treating the adrenal glands was a very smart move. And in the early days, I didn't really understand the connection between the adrenal gland and Candida, but now I do. In fact, a lot of my patients with chronic resistant, intractable Candida have severe adrenal fatigue. It's not until we change their lifestyle, boost their adrenal function up, and power their immune system that we can actually fight this chronic infection. All the diets aren't going to work if your immune system is in poor condition. Just remember that. All the diets are useless. You have to get your immune system powered up. It's a very important point I want you to get from Val's case history. The respiratory physician at the hospital was absolutely blown away when he looked at Val's peak flow volumes, how that improved four or five fold literally within six months of adrenal treatment. He was staggered. And when I asked him if he thought this was a valid therapy, he said, “Oh, absolutely.” And then when I asked him if this would be possible in the hospital, he said, “It's impossible. We can only use drugs in the hospital. We can't use any natural treatments.” How crazy is that? I hope you've learned from this case history if you're taking steroids. Thanks for tuning in.

3D Asthma Medical Animation (Symptoms, Causes and Modern  Treatment Techniques)
This new 3D medical animation provides a general overview of asthma, its symptoms, causes and treatment for this clinical condition of the upper respiratory airways. The video includes details related to symptoms of asthma, as well as its causes and treatment. Here are our web pages with overview of asthma: - http://www.normalbreathing.com/diseases-Asthma.php (in English) - http://www.respiracionnormal.org/asma/ (in Spanish). If you like this 3d medical animation, share this video URL on your Facebook, Google plus, Twitter, and other social networks. Asthma is a lung disease that is accompanied by inflammation and narrowing of the airways. It can be managed with medication, avoidance of triggers, elimination of inflammation, and breathing exercises that increase amounts of CO2 (carbon dioxide) in the airways and alveoli, as this 3d animation video explains. As some official medical sources from the NHS (www.nhs.uk/conditions/asthma/) claim, "Asthma ... can be managed but not cured". However, these medical sources in their YouTube 3D animations and videos do not provide educational details about the treatment of asthma using the Buteyko breathing exercises. This therapy was tested in 6 controlled randomized clinical trials conducted in Western countries. More about clinical trials http://www.normalbreathing.com/buteyko.php/ . Bronchospasm, due to asthma, is caused by 3 factors: - Swelling of cells in the lining of airways due to chronic inflammation - Constriction of smooth muscles that are located around bronchi and bronchioles (also known as bronchoconstriction) - Production of additional mucus (or phlegm) due to inflammation and triggers of asthma. As a result, asthmatics suffer from these classical symptoms of asthma - wheezing (whistling or rattling sounds in the chest) - coughing - chest tightness - difficulty breathing. More about symptoms of asthma in 3d video: - http://www.normalbreathing.com/c/asthma-symptoms.php (in English) Bronchospasm causes: http://www.respiracionnormal.org/broncoespasmo/ (in Spanish). Common asthma triggers include following factors: pollen, house dust mites, mold, cigarette smoke, and pet dander. However, there are many other factors that can trigger an asthma attack. These include lower respiratory infections, overeating, anxiety, psychological stress, exercise, and even laughter. Acute asthma exacerbations (asthma attacks) and even deaths are most likely to occur during early morning hours or from about 4 to 7 am during sleep. There are two lifestyle factors that dramatically increase chances of these problems at night. These are: - sleeping on the back (supine sleep) - and mouth breathing. The common approach to asthma is to use bronchodilator medication (such as Ventolin) that relaxes the smooth muscles of airways and dilates them allowing easier air flow. Bronchospasm can be reversed with avoidance of triggers or elimination of inflammation. Apart from using medication, 6 randomized controlled clinical trials showed that people with asthma can reduce or eliminate their symptoms of asthma and main bronchodilator medications by about 90% using breathing exercises to slow down breathing back to the medical norms. This method of alternative medicine is called the Buteyko breathing technique. It has rating from the British Thoracic Society showing much higher efficiency of this method for asthma than yoga, meditation, nutritional intervention, or any other tested complementary therapy, as we explained in 3D animation above.

A Hot Treatment for Asthma
Pollen, mold, even humidity can send asthma sufferers into a severe meltdown. But a relatively new outpatient procedure is offering hope for adults with extreme cases. “There’s a new technology in the treatment of asthma that’s called bronchial thermoplasty. We use this technology on folks who have severe asthma and whose symptoms have not been controlled with usual medical therapy,” says Dr. Sagar Naik, who is a pulmonologist with Lee Memorial Health System. Adults with uncontrolled asthma often make repeat trips to the hospital and over time the chronic condition becomes permanent and damaging. “What happens in a process we like to call airways remodeling. Airways remodeling means the tubes that takes air to their lungs are inflamed. With years and years of inflammation that tube gets scarred and gest thickened and permanently remains a constricted phase,” says Dr. Naik. The first non-drug therapy FDA approved to treat severe, chronic asthma; bronchial thermoplasty directly targets the inflamed airways. And by applying heat, gets them to open up. “What we do in bronchial thermoplasty is take a thin, flexible, fiber optic tube with a camera at it’s tip, from the nose down into the lungs. We take it to each individual breathing tube and at a very, very, low frequency we emit heat energy that allows that muscle around the breathing tubes to shrink,” says Dr. Naik. This technology is available through Lee Memorial Health System. Nationally, data shows the effects have staying power: that five years post-procedure there was 78% reduction of asthma-related ER visits. “Getting back from a point where you’re always scared when the next asthma attack is going to be, to being well controlled is a huge improvement,” says Naik. Making this hot treatment a life-changing procedure for people struggling to breath.

Acute Bronchitis - Causes, Symptoms, Treatments & More…
See much more honest health information at: http://www.rehealthify.com/ Rehealthify offers reliable, up-to-date health information, anytime, anywhere, for free. -- video script below -- Bronchitis is an inflammation of the bronchial tubes, the airways that carry air to your lungs. It causes a cough that often brings up mucus, as well as shortness of breath, wheezing, and chest tightness. There are two main types of bronchitis: acute and chronic. The same viruses that cause colds and the flu often cause acute bronchitis. These viruses spread through the air when people cough, or through physical contact (for example, on unwashed hands). Being exposed to tobacco smoke, air pollution, dusts, vapors, and fumes can also cause acute bronchitis. Bacteria can also cause acute bronchitis, but not as often as viruses. Most cases of acute bronchitis get better within several days. But your cough can last for several weeks after the infection is gone. If you think you have acute bronchitis, see your healthcare provider. Treatments include rest, fluids, and aspirin (for adults) or acetaminophen to treat fever. A humidifier or steam can also help. You may need inhaled medicine to open your airways if you are wheezing. You probably do not need antibiotics. They don't work against viruses - the most common cause of acute bronchitis. If your healthcare provider thinks you have a bacterial infection, he or she may prescribe antibiotics. NIH: National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute

Chronic coughing: Possible causes and treatment
Chronic cough is defined as daily coughing for three weeks or more. Although a common complaint in smokers, when non-smokers have a chronic cough with a normal X-ray, the cause is likely one of three things, says Jeffrey Weiland, MD, a pulmonologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. In half of the cases, it's because of undiagnosed asthma. In the other half, the cause is typically post-nasal drip (particularly common in those 60 or older) or acid reflux. Even when there are no other symptoms of acid reflux, Dr. Weiland explains that it only takes one teaspoon of acid to cause coughing. When patients do present with a chronic cough and have a normal X-ray, asthma treatment is initiated. If that does not resolve the issue, Dr. Weiland then refers patients to an ear, nose and throat specialist to look at the voice box for any indications of irritation or reflux.

Asthma Treatment, Symptoms, Pathophysiology, Nursing Interventions NCLEX Review Lecture
Asthma treatment (asthma attack), symptoms, pathophysiology nursing NCLEX review lecture. This lecture will detail the pathophysiology of asthma along with the early warning signs vs active signs of an asthma attack. In addition to a sample asthma action plan along with using a peak flow meter to monitor asthma, asthma triggers, nursing interventions for asthma, and all the medications used to treat asthma, which are bronchodilators and anti-inflammatory medications. What is asthma? Asthma is a chronic lung disease (no cure) that causes narrowing and inflammation of the airways (bronchi and bronchioles) that leads to difficulty breathing. How does it happen? Normally, when you breathe in air, it travels down through your upper airway to your lower airway, which includes the trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli (where gas exchanges happens). The oxygen you breathe in crosses over into your blood stream, and the carbon dioxide in your blood crosses over into the airway to be exhaled. In patients with asthma, the bronchi and bronchioles are chronically inflamed and can become so inflamed that it leads to an asthma attack (wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, coughing), which is usually due to a trigger of some type. Asthma triggers include: -Environment: smoke, pollen, pollution, perfumes, dander, dust mites, pests (cockroaches), cold and dry air, mold -Body Issue: respiratory infection, GERD, hormonal shifts, exercise-induced -Intake of Certain Substances: drugs (beta adrenergic blockers that are nonselective), NSAIDS, aspirin, preservatives (sulfites) Signs and Symptoms of an asthma attack include: chest tightness, wheezing (auscultate…expiratory wheezing and can progress to inspiratory wheezes in severe cases), coughing, difficulty breathing (***especially exhaling), increased respiratory rate Asthma treatment includes: bronchodilators (beta-agonists, anticholinergics, theophylline along with anti-inflammatories (corticosteroids, leukotriene modifiers, immunomodulators, cromolyn).

The Importance of Eosinophils in Personalized Severe Asthma Treatment
Mark S. Forshag, MD, MHA, GSK, spoke with MD Magazine at AAAAI 2017 in Atlanta, GA, about the importance of eosinophils in treating severe asthma. Forshag said his team focused on the mass cell and have come to realize there are additional forms of inflammation mediated by the eosinophil cell. Forshag also shared how phenotypes help identify patients that "are a little different from others". Learning the basis of phenotypes is necessary for understanding the use of the monoclonal antibody Nucala, which is directed against interleukin 5.

Asthma for USMLE Step 2
Asthma will be discussed, in particular its pathophysiology, causes, sign and symptoms chronic management and management of acute exacerbation. This handwritten asthma lecture is for medical students planning on taking the USMLE. Asthma is defined based on it pathophysiology, airway inflammation and intermitten obstruction due to bronchial hyperresonsive. This is typically mediated by mast cells, eosinophils and other markers which leads to airway edema and mucus plug. This obstruction increases restriction and decreased expiratory flow rate. Therefore asthma is considered an obstructive disease. CAUSES Environmental allergen Viral infection such as rhinovirus and RSV Sinusitis Exercise induced GERD - acid in esophagus trigger vagus response and bronchoconstriction Aspirin induced increase leukotrienes leading to bronchoconstriction Obesity Occupational Exposure Emotional CLINICAL SIGN AND SYMPTOMS OF ASTHMA Begins at any age, but generally diagnosed before 7 years old and remit at adolescents. Cough - nonproductive, paroxysmal in night and early morning Chest Tightness and Chest Pain Wheeze which is initially end expiratory then present in entire expiration and then present on expiration and inspiration. Finally silent chest which is an emergency. Tachypnea initially and when severe hypoventilation with use of accessory muscles (Sternucleiodomastoid). Pulsus parodoxus where on inspiration there is a drop in blood pressure. Asthma patients also become breathless and can only speak in phrases and words. EVALUATION Astham can be diagnosed by clinical findings. Also use spirometry and rule out other alternatives. Bronchoprovocation test is the gold standard by giving asthma patient methacholine and mannitol or exercise and wait for symptoms to occur. If positive need to rule our COPD, rhinitis and other causes. However, negative rules out asthma. In spirometry the asthma patient pushes out air in one second (FEV1) and the ratio of FEV1/FVC is less than 80%. And asthma will be reversed with bronchodilator and the COPD, Emphysema and Bronchiectasis is not reversible. The peak expiratory flow monitor will be low in asthma patients. Patient should be greater than 80% of peak value depending on values in chart. Blood and sputum eosinophils tend to be greater than 4% in asthma and if greater than 8% there are more differentials. Also helps guide therapy. Chest X-ray in asthma patients is normal, but it helps rule out other causes. STAGING Intermittent asthma, the patient is asymptomatic between exacerbations. Will have less than 2 episodes per week and 2 night episodes per month. Normal Activity Level. Severe exacerbation defined as requirement of oral glucocorticoid less than once a year. FEV1 is greater than 80% Mild Persistent asthma the patient has 2-6 episodes per week, 3-4 nights out of the month. Moderate persistent asthma the patient has daily episodes and more than 1 night symptom a week. Some acitivity limitation. FEV1 is between 60-80% and the FEV1/FVC ratio is decreased by 5% Severe persistent asthma the patient has symptoms throughout the day and night symptoms every night. Severe Activity limitation. Acute exacerbation of asthma more than 2 times a year. FEV1 is less than 60% and FEV1/FVC is decreased by more than 5%. MANAGEMENT of ASTHMA Education has decreased mortality the most with discussion of asthma action plan and avoiding triggers. Step system for asthma management a step up is required with 2 days a week requirement of SABA and step down with well controlled for 3 months. Step 1 - Short Acting Beta Agonist (SABA) as needed Step 2 - Low dose Inhaled Corticosteroids (ICS) Daily Step 3 - Low dose ICS and LABA Step 4 - LABA and Medium dose ICS Step 5 - LABA and High Dose ICS and omalizumab Step 6 - LABA and High Dose ICS and Oral Glucocorticoid and Omalizumab due to allergies Alternative to LABA is LTRA, Zileuton, and Theophylline. MANAGEMENT OF ACUTE EXACERBATION OF ASTHMA If Peak Expiratory Flow is 50-79% then take 2-6 puffs of SABA 3 times ever 20 minutes and repeat PEF. If better continue SABA and change medication. If doesn't improve, take Oral glucocorticoids continue SABA and change medications. If Less than 50% then go to emergency Department. Managing asthmatic patient in emergency department is first by doing physical examination to confirm asthma. Start management with oxygen. If cannot reach greater than 90% then intubate and admit to ICU. Otherwise start SABA and if PEF is less than 40% start with SABA, Ipratropium and oral Glucocorticoid. Reassess with PEF and if improving (70%) then observe and discharge. If not improving then admit into wards monitor vitals. If worsening admit to ICU and give IV glucocorticoids and mechanical ventilation.

COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), Chronic Bronchitis, Emphysema-NCLEX Part 1
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) nursing NCLEX lecture on the pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, types (chronic bronchitis and emphysema), complications, and how it is diagnosed. COPD is a pulmonary disease that causes chronic obstruction of airflow from the lungs. The cause of the limited airflow is due to chronic inflammation and narrowing of the bronchioles which becomes deformed over time and produces excessive mucous (mainly in chronic bronchitis) and the loss of elasticity of the alevoli sacs (mainly found in emphysema). These problems lead to limited gas exchange such as respiratory acidosis due to extreme retention of carbon dioxide (CO2) and low availability of oxygen. COPD is a "catch all" term used to describe diseases that limit airflow which now includes diseases such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Patients with chronic bronchitis are sometimes referred to as "blue bloaters". This is because of the cyanosis and edema (hence the bloating) experienced with this disease. Patients with emphysema are sometimes referred to as "pink puffers". These patients do not experience cyanosis, although they have low oxygen levels but maintain a "pink" appearance due to the compensatory state of hyperventilation keeping the oxygen level sufficient enough. The hyperventilation leads to the increased usage of the accessory muscles which leads to a barrel chest look (increased anteroposterior diameter noted on inspection). Signs and symptoms of COPD include: chronic dry or productive cough, lack of energy, extreme dyspnea, abnormal blood gases, abnormal lung sounds (coarse crackles or wheezing), barrel chest, tripod position for breathing, poor nutrition, recurrent lung infection etc. Complications of COPD include: heart disease such as right-sided heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, pneumothorax, pneumonia, increase risk of lung cancer. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is diagnosed with spirometry. Don't forget to watch Part 2 which includes the nursing interventions and medication regime for COPD.
