Common Ailments of the Respiratory System

Updated on November 13, 2009

Common Ailments of the Respiratory System

The respiratory system if not well taken cared of will develop some respiratory ailments. These ailments are:

1.       Nosebleeding is also called epixtaxis. This may happen due to

a.       Picking the mucous

b.      Breathing very dry air

c.       Common colds

d.      High blood pressure

When nosebleeding occurs, the best thing to do is sit up and lean forward rather than lie down. This will help lower your blood pressure and allow the blood to flow out of your nose rather than your throat.

2.       Sinusitis – the sinusitis are hollow spaces in the bones surrounding the nose. Inflammation of the mucous membrane of the sinuses caused by bacterial infection results in sinusitis. Steam inhalation often brings relief.

3.       Common Cold – the common cold is an infection of the upper air passages such as nose, sinusitis and pharynx. Infection spreads easily by hand contact. One easily catches cold when he is overfatigued, suffers from loss of sleep or exposure to cold or wind. Avoid crowded places if possible.

4.       Sore Throat- sore throat is also called pharyngitis .  It is brought about by the inflammation of the tonsils caused by a virus. It is characterized by a reddish throat. It is usually accompanied by fever. Sore throat is also a symptom of measles, scarlet fever and whooping cough. Gargling with lukewarm saline solution may provide some relief.

5.       Tonsilitis – is an inflammation of the tonsils. It is caused by a virus. Symptoms include soreness of the throat, fever, aching limbs and swollen, red tonsils.
