'asthma cold trigger with dry mouth and throat nont stop cough and trouble breathing during heavy work out how accurate are the finter tip pulse ox for oxygen?
Should work fine: A fingertip pulse oximeter should give an valid reading if it can follow the pulse, which means the reading is valid if the pulse shown on the oximeter matches the patient's actual pulse. One can check on its accuracy by comparing it with other oximeters, such as those at the doctor's office. No machine is perfect, so any oximeter can malfunction... thus beware of unexpected oximeter results. ...Read more

Probably not: Mouth breathing is usually done because the nasal passages are swollen and congested, forcing a person to breathe through their mouth. Persons with asthma frequently have allergies. An allergist or ENT doctor would be a good resource to assess the reason for mouth breathing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Asthma unlikely: You have a 9!year old daughter. She ran 1 mile. She tasted blood, was dizzy and had trouble breathing. It is unlikely to be a true asthma. She most likely improved with rest. See your pediatrician. A physician supervised exercise regimen is important. Pulmonary hypertension is rare and that is part of your question. For future sports it is worth the visit. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Obstruction...: In an asthma attack, there is airway obstruction so expiration becomes difficult and, eventually, there is an increase in carbon dioxide since it can't be expired. Pursed lip breathing prolongs the expiratory phase of respiration so that, potentially, more air and carbon dioxide can be exhaled. That way, there is more room for oxygen to be inhaled. ...Read more
Can you have dysfunction breathing patterns without asthma/COPD etc? Would pursed lip breathing help retrain your body out of DSPs?
DSPs??: Sorry I don't know what you mean by DSPs. Pursed lip breathing is sometimes seen with copd as an involuntary means of maintaining positive pressure in the airways to avoid collapse of the tiny air sacs during expiration. In the absence of lung or neuromuscular disease anxiety may be the reason for irregular breathing patterns. ...Read more
I have asthma mixed type but recently I am having tonsils issues and they are swollen and affecting my breathing alot what should I do?
Consult an ENT: Tonsil removal is not part of routine care like it was 50-60 years ago but it may be indicated in a subgroup of people.

Not necessarily...: Asthma is typically characterized by coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and chest tightness.

I have trouble breathing when i lay down? I do have asthma, but it's never been this bad. I lie down and stop breathing or have a hard time. What can I do?
Sleep apnea?: If you have trouble breathing immediately upon lying down, this indicates something obstructing your upper airways (see ent). If you mean that you often get awakened from choking , then you should consider a sleep study. I assume that you have no breathing problem during the day . If you are really overweight, you should try to get your weight down regardless of the above. ...Read more
