Asthma COPD and Overlap Book Excerpt:

Using illustrative case examples, this book thoroughly reviews similarities and differences between asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the overlap syndrome. It is important to highlight the distinctions because these commonly encountered conditions in respiratory and primary care share many similarities but have important differences often mistaken for each other. This can have serious implications for treatment, particularly as new treatments are targeted at specific phenotypes of the diseases. This practical guide shows how to distinguish between the diseases on a pathological and clinical basis so that appropriate management and treatment may be pursued.

Models of Exacerbations in Asthma and COPD Book Excerpt:

This volume provides an overview of exacerbation models of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Within this wide field the book focuses on experimental systems that mimic pathobiological processes likely to be critical in exacerbations of these conditions. To generate insight into the mechanisms of exacerbation of pulmonary disease and to promote the discovery of future treatments, both animal models and human experimental models are described. For this update some of the most eminent scientists within the area of pulmonology could be recruited to share their knowledge of this evolving field of human medicine. Models of Exacerbations in Asthma and COPD will be of great interest to pulmonologists, allergologists, specialists in internal medicine and critical care, as well as to microbiologists, infectiologists and pharmacologists studying the response to respiratory infections.

New Drugs and Targets for Asthma and COPD Book Excerpt:

Asthma, allergy and chronic obstructive lung disease are common throughout the world and are increasing in incidence, particularly in the developing world. This volume provides a state-of-the-art account of the identification of new targets and the development of new therapies for these conditions. Some 40 chapters by clinical academics and senior members of the pharmaceutical industry detail the latest breakthroughs in research and development. In asthma, a promising approach is the use of therapy directed against specific Th2 responses through biological antagonists of IL-5, IL-4 and IL-13. There have also been major advances in our understanding of innate immune responses to pathogen-associated molecular patterns, and in the area of Toll-like receptors. Up to date and comprehensive, this book will be of particular relevance to those working in the pharmaceutical industry (in preclinical research and clinical development), to academic researchers in the field of respiratory medicine, and to respiratory health care specialists.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Asthma Book Excerpt:

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and bronchial asthma are commonly seen respiratory diseases that severely influence a patient's health and quality of life. Throughout the centuries, Chinese medical doctors have recognized the importance of these diseases and have accumulated rich clinical experience and a wealth of practical information. Using holistic methods Chinese medicine is able to help restore normal function to respiratory system, inhibit inflammatory cells and mediators, decrease airway hyper-reactivity and pulmonary hypertension, improve pulmonary ventilation function and blood circulation, and adjust organic immunity. Our editorial board has refined and summarized the available literature on clinical diagnosis and treatment by referencing the clinical experience of doctors past and present and citing current research results. This book is an essential handbook for those treating COPD and bronchial asthma. A part of the comprehensive series The Clinical Practice of Chinese Medicine, this book aims to guide the reader through the complexity of clinical practice. Inside are detailed discussions on the clinical experience of renowned physicians from ancient and modern times that will enable the practitioner to become more adept at accurately diagnosing and effectively treating COPD and bronchial asthma.

How to naturally reverse ASTHMA and COPD with the use of herb and drugs. Asthma is also known to be a disease associated with the airways in the lungs which allows the coming in and out of air out of the lungs. From the research made out of the total population of Americans, it is estimated that millions has this chronic obstructive condition which is known as ASTHMA Small passages exists which helps in oxygen delivering from the air to our bloodstream, so this is how asthma takes place or occur, when we notice swellings of the lining of the airways which in returns causes the muscles close to them to tighten up, there will be too much of mucus which will eventually cause a reduction of the amount of air that will pass through it, when this happens, difficulty in breathing takes place associated with wheezing and coughing which will in return lead to tightness in the heart thereby causing what is called ASTHMA.. COPD describes lung diseases associated with chronic bronchitis characterized by breathlessness.

Perfect medication for (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,) COPD, Chronic Cough, Asthma, Airway Disorders Salbutamol is known to be a bronchodilator medication that relaxes the muscles of the airways leading to the lungs and also a drug that helps to improve the amount of air flow to and from the lungs. It is used to treat and prevent asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases. It belongs to a class of drug called bronchodilators and it known to be a B2 adrenergic agonist which is used to treat the following diseases: Asthma Chronic bronchitis And other breathing disorders. The inhaled form of this drug is also used to prevent asthma attack that is caused by exercise, this drug works by relaxing the muscles in the wall of the small airways in the lungs which helps to open up the airways and ease breathing. This drug most times is known as albuterol and normally marketed as ventolin among other name, this drug is a medication that helps open up the airways in the lung, it's also used to treat some form of attack and exercise induced bronchoconstriction and COPD. This drug also helps to treat high blood potassium level. This drug is usually used with an inhaler or nebulizer and also available as a pill and also as intravenous solution.
