Pulmicort is designed to facilitate breathing in diseases such as chronic obstructive bronchitis (COB) and bronchial asthma. Unfortunately, these diseases, appearing once, remain with patients for life. Periodically, there are periods of remission, and with unfavorable factors, problems with normal breathing in adults and children begin again.
In childhood, the initial stages of COB and bronchial asthma are cured in 40% of cases and no longer bother the child, but such cases constitute a still smaller percentage. There are also cases when a doctor diagnoses bronchial asthma, but in fact, it is not even close. Therefore, parents thank the doctor for the effective treatment of non-existent asthma, handing out to the right and left the phone “miracle doctor.”
To use Pulmicort for inhalations and to calculate the correct dosage for children, it is necessary to clearly define the diagnosis. The drug is a strong medicine you can buy on our site, which includes a hormone.
Note to parents – it’s important! Use Pulmicort only after consulting with a pulmonologist, the usual procedure for a pediatrician is not enough. Be sure to perform a special diagnosis before using the drug: spirography, and for older children bod plethysmography is recommend.
First, the child’s breathing is recorded on the apparatus, then they are allowed to inhale broncholithine (ventolin or other remedy), and after 15 minutes repeat the recording again. If indicators of forced expiration will differ by more than 15% percent, then a diagnosis of bronchial asthma will be made.
When the index of forced expiration changes by several percent, by about 1-6%, the physician can suspect COB, and the initial figures should be already up to the level of 86%, which is the lower limit of the norm of this value.
Only after these studies, a pulmonologist can decide whether to appoint Pulmicort or its analogue for inhalation to a child.
So, nevertheless, an unpleasant diagnosis is put forward – COB or bronchial asthma, in any case despair is not necessary. Modern methods of treatment will allow to “hold” patients for a long time in the stage of long-term remission. Therefore, let’s go directly to the Pulmicort instructions for children, which tells in detail how to properly administer inhalations for successful treatment.
