Respiratory diseases form a very large group covering both acute problems as well as long-term, chronic diseases. If we discuss this specifically, these are most varied types of inflammations of upper and lower airways, also inclusive of bronchial asthma or allergic rhinitis.
How do you know that you are experiencing a respiratory disease? The most frequent symptoms include dry, mucus, wheezing, or chesty cough. It depends on the problem type. Furthermore, there comes fatigue, loss of appetite, sleeping disorders, and rhinitis. Equally meaningful symptoms are chest pain, hoarseness, singultus, bluish skin colouration, or even coughing up blood.
What methods are used to treat respiratory diseases in Marianske Lazne?
Spa treatments in Marianske Lazne are aimed primarily at treating chronic inflammations, such as bronchitis and bronchial asthma, allergic rhinitis, and conditions after surgery on lower airways. The therapy exploits mineral water inhalations, if needed with additions of natural salts or herbal infusions. Sauna and mineral baths enriched with the Dead Sea salt are beneficial as well.
Inflammation of the upper airways
The upper part of the breathing apparatus may cause you a lot of trouble. It is attacked by most varied inflammations and infections. The most widespread ones include the inflammation of the nasal mucosa, nasopharynx, or tonsils diseases, which many a person can remember from their childhood years for certain. Laryngitis, or the inflammation of the larynx, is a relatively dangerous disease, as it may cause severe breathing difficulties. The treatment of these diseases in childhood is usually not very difficult, however, in particular in adulthood it can cause lots of trouble and may develop in chronic diseases that cannot be rid of so easily.
Drinking therapy and the already-mentioned inhalation of mineral water rising from the Forest Spring in Marianske Lazne contribute to alleviating chronic problems. It has mucolytic effects, releasing mucus from the airways and facilitating expectoration. You can try the procedure e.g. in Nove Lazne hotel, or in Centralni Lazne.
Inflammation of the lower airways
This group of lower airways disorders is represented e.g. by inflammation of the trachea or bronchitis. While the acute type of bronchitis, which is caused by untreated cold or virus infection and manifests itself with irritant, dry cough, chest pain, and often fever, is usually sufficiently treated with cough pills or antibiotics, the chronic bronchitis is a more complicated problem.
It causes permanent respiratory problems and is defined as chronic cough lasting minimum 3 months for 2 subsequent years. It is caused by long-term strain and irritation of the airways. It often affects smokers and persons working in dusty environments. It is treated by special medicaments, the so-called bronchodilating drugs and in serious cases by oxygen application. If the therapy is not successful, this type of bronchitis can lead as far as the obstructive lung disease.
Another infectious disease affecting the lower airways is pneumonia, infectious or bacterial diseases that may be caused by fungi or parasites.
Pneumonia also belongs to problems affecting smokers more frequently. The risk groups cover also alcoholics or immunocompromised persons, or persons having a scarred lung tissue. It poses the greatest threat to children and the elderly, for whom it can be fatal.
Respiratory diseases also include:
Asthma bronchiale – a chronic disease manifesting itself with dangerous asthmatic outbursts, i.e. wheezing cough, dyspnoea, bluish skin colouration and rasping when medication must be administered immediately. It is partly caused by the genetic background and also by external triggers, including most varied allergens (pollen, dust, fungi, smoke, mites, etc.) but also stress or strain.
The chronic obstructive pulmonary disease – a serious disorder obstructing the lower airways. An obstacle is formed preventing correct inhalation and expiration. It occurs most frequently in men and its main cause is smoking or working in dusty environments. Another reason is a repeated infection of the lower airways, or frequent pneumonias.
