Cheyne Stokes Respiration In Children
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

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?
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
Living: There is no answer to this question. It all depends on the state of her activity level. Normal respiratory rate for a health adult is fourteen to sixteen breaths per minute. ...Read more
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
Breathing: Respiration usually just means breathing. There is another more technical meaning when describing the biochemical processess within your body - "cellular respiration" is the process of combining oxygen inside your cells, in the mitochondria, where your cells create the chemical energy that drives your body. ...Read more

?: What kind of procedure? Spontaneous respirations are normal. That's what we do 24/7. Unless you had a procedure where you were given paralytics, you were probably breathing spontaneously. ...Read more
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.

If someone has hypernatremia what happens with in the body to cause them to have rapid respiration's?
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
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

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
I do had my xray done and it said that I have side out granuloma. What does it mean? Why do I require optimal respiration
