According to statistics, an adult suffers about three SARS per year, and a child up to six. You can catch the infection at any time of the year, both in cold winters and hot summers, not to mention autumn and spring, when not only acute diseases occur, but chronic ones also become aggravated.
Cough is a frequent companion of a cold
This symptom suggests that the body does not sleep and, trying to protect us, frees the airways from accumulated sputum, dust particles, and various chemicals. If not for him, any minor inflammation of the respiratory tract would end in pneumonia. But effective is a productive cough with sputum. It is also called wet. In the mucosa of the respiratory tract, nature has created a mechanism that can be compared to the device of an escalator in the subway, only instead of steps moving towards the goal, special cilia advance the mucus in the ciliated epithelium. With inflammation, their movement is hindered by swelling of the mucosa. Stagnant mucus becomes thick, which makes it attractive to microorganisms, which show their “joy” by rapid reproduction and the desire to capture an ever larger territory.
One of the additional means of treating diseases of the bronchi and lungs is inhalation. To date, the painfully tedious sitting under the covers over a kettle or a pot of steam has long been replaced by convenient inhalers. An inhaler is a device that converts drug solutions into aerosols. When using an inhaler, drugs are delivered directly to the respiratory tract of a person. As a result, the treatment of common coughs and diseases such as bronchitis, pneumonia or bronchial asthma is much more effective and faster. Inhalers are: compressor, ultrasonic, saline, heat-moist. The choice of an inhaler, medicines for inhalation, the number and duration of procedures, be sure to discuss with your doctor.
How to properly treat a cough
You can’t hesitate in such a situation. We must help the body. And the herbal preparation PROSPAN® will help to win precious time when choosing the right cough remedy. Why?
