Bronchial asthma is a particularly dangerous ailment, since improper and untimely elimination of the symptoms of this disease can lead to the death of the patient. The main danger is that the initial symptoms of bronchial asthma can be mild – a feeling of a slight lack of air at night, the similarity of the manifestations of the classic allergic reaction to a certain type of irritant (most often it is a seasonal allergy) and so on.
The disease is of a general nature, that is, both men and women are equally present in the risk group. Recently, cases have become more frequent. The reason for this outbreak, scientists call a sharp deterioration in the ecology of the Earth.
Symptoms of bronchial asthma in men
Often, bronchial asthma affects men aged 40 years. The reason can equally be both the general state of health, heredity, and labor activity associated with harmful production. One way or another, but the treatment of bronchial asthma in men (as well as in women and in children) should begin with the appearance of the first signs (cough, slight shortness of breath).
It should be clarified that often the cause of the development of the disease in men is tobacco smoking, especially if the experience of the “smoker” exceeds the border of 25 years. In this case, bronchial asthma is especially dangerous, since the symptoms of the disease (shortness of breath, cough, wheezing in the chest, etc.) in the first stages are attributed specifically to the effects of harmful smoke on the body.
Treatment of bronchial asthma in men
Men rarely pay attention to the first harbingers of the disease and seek help only when the disease poses a threat to normal life.
Most often, the treatment of bronchial asthma comes down to mitigate and eliminate the symptoms as completely as possible . Depending on the severity of the painful manifestations, the doctor may prescribe treatment. Preferably, basic therapies are used that act on the mechanism of the problem. Among such medications, hormones, inhaled glucocorticosteroids, monoclonal antibodies and leukotriene receptor antagonists can be distinguished .
If bronchial asthma is infectious, special antibiotics may be prescribed. Hospitalization of the patient is necessary in those cases if the attack is not stopped by an inhaler or intravenous drug injection.
