What's cheyne-stokes respiration?

What's cheyne-stokes respiration?

Abnormal breathing: Cheyne-stokes respiration is an abnormal breathing pattern where the patient has very deep breathing (sometimes with increased respiratory rate) that gradually slows down until the patient stops breathing, and the cycle repeats (usually over a 30-120 second cycle). Some of the causes include: congestive heart failure, stroke, head injury, and brain tumors. ...Read more

Can I treat cheyne stokes respiration by using home mixtures?

Can I treat cheyne stokes respiration by using home mixtures?

No: Better that you find out why someone has cheyne stokes breathing than to just try some home mixture to influence it. In and of itself it doesn't need treatment but finding and treating the cause is more important as it could indicate heart failure or other serious issues. ...Read more

Is cheyne stokes respiration, a irregular breathing or a rhythmic breathing?

Is cheyne stokes respiration, a irregular breathing or a rhythmic breathing?

Irregular breathing: Abnormal breathing pattern marked by progressively deeper & sometimes faster breathing, followed by a gradual decrease that results in temporary stop in breathing. Seen in heart failure, strokes, traumatic brain injuries, brain tumors; carbon monoxide poisoning; sometimes after morphine is given; can be seen in healthy people during sleep at high altitude. ...Read more

Can you give a 4 year childrens delsym (dextromethorphan) along with a breathing treatment for coughing?

Yes, you can: Give the breathing treatment first to see if that helps, use a cool mist vaporizor if available in child's room at night. If severe coughing, rapid respirations, trouble talking for child, to urgent care, after hours pediatrics, or ER ...Read more

I pediatric doctor I noted children age from 3 to 9 month complain cough and runny nose. Breathing by mouth. On auscultation chest clear what is treat?

Runny nose: The details aren't specific enough to answer clearly. If the child has a low grade temperature it may be one of many common viral illnesses. Is there is an irritant in the home, this also can lead to chronic cough and runny nose: cigarette smoke! Is the child gaining weight well, what is the family history? So it is important to follow up with a pediatrician to evaluate and treat. ...Read more

What factors affect tidal volume (respiration)?

What factors affect tidal volume (respiration)?

Tidal volume: Tidal volume is just the size of the breath you take. It is affected by your body type, age, height, as well as by your own effort. There are diseases and conditions that can reduce your ability to take a deep breath like pneumonia for example. ...Read more

Could you please describe how cellular respiration could be altered when you are performing vigorous exercise?

Could you please describe how cellular respiration could be altered when you are performing vigorous exercise?

Yes: When endurance type activities are done, cells use primarily aerobic metabolism which can be kept up for longer periods of time. When particularly rigorous exercise is done, the cells use anaerobic metabolism which produces a burst of energy at the expense of producing lactic acid and able to be sustained for a shorter time. ...Read more

What is the basic difference between breathing and respiration.....?

What is the basic difference between breathing and respiration.....?

Mechanical vs biolog: Breathing is basically the actual air movement in and out of lungs. Respiration is a biological process of transferring and using the oxygen/carbon dioxide for cellular functions/chemical processes, applying to both animals and plants. It is a rather complicated but fascinating process of life. Biology=study of life.
Have fun learning. Good luck. ...Read more

What are upper normal limits of respiration rate for a women who weighs 150 pounds, 5' 7" is tall and is 83 years old?

What are upper normal limits of respiration rate for a women who weighs 150 pounds, 5' 7" is tall and is 83 years old?

Respiration rate: The average respiration rate for adults is 12-16 breaths per minute. More important is if you are nasal breathing so that the volume of air in and out is controlled. If you are exhaling through the mouth you may be losing too much CO2 (which causes smooth muscle to relax). without enough CO2, oxygen doesn't release from the hemoglobin molecules. Seek out correct breathing instruction ...Read more

How does pleurisy affect exchange of gases (external respiration)?

How does pleurisy affect exchange of gases (external respiration)?

Depends on cause: When doctors say pleurisy, they can mean the symptom (pleuritic chest pain) or inflammation of the pleura (the thin layers of tissue surrounding the lung). Whether gas exchange is affected depends on what's causing the pleurisy. Is it a pneumonia, pneumothorax, chemical irritation, something automimmune, a clot? Some conditions would cause more problems with gas exchange than others. ...Read more

If mild hypoxia stimulates respiration, why does severe hypoxia depresses the same?

If mild hypoxia stimulates respiration, why does severe hypoxia depresses the same?

Hypoxia: Oxygen is required for tissues to burn their fuel, just like a fire burning a log. The human system can compensate for mild low o2 by breathing faster, equal to u blowing on the fire to help it burn. If the o2 is so low breathing faster doesn't get enough or the body becomes exhausted in the effort, the metabolism shuts down, equal to the fire going out. ...Read more
