Study connects climate hazards to 58% of infectious diseases
"Hi Mike Gracia reporting a new study connects climate hazards to 58% of infectious diseases A new study says more than half of the known infectious diseases in people including malaria cholera and anthrax have worsened due to climate hazards such as flooding heat waves and drought In Monday's journal nature climate change researchers said they found 218 of the known 375 human infectious diseases seemed to be made worse by one of ten types of extreme weather connected to climate change The study says warming oceans and heat waves can taint seafood and other things we eat Droughts can bring bats carrying viral infections to people Downpours and flooding sick and people through disease carrying mosquitos rats and deer Additionally the study found 223 of 286 unique non infectious sicknesses such as asthma and allergies seemed to be worsened by climate hazards I'm Mike Gracia
Kevin McCullough: Biden Has Problems Up and Down
"Seems obvious. And again, your average American is busy, they're raising their kids, they're caring for their parents, caring for their kids. They're trying to get to work. They're trying to they don't have time to get into this. So they look around, they see disaster everywhere, Biden and his administration really couldn't be worse. I mean, I think that's an objective take. This is not just because I know he stole the election and is allowing socialists to destroy America. Apart from that, it's just bad everybody says it's bad. You just gave us the numbers. So what are some of the scenarios? I mean, first of all, he's been vaccinated 40,000 times, and he has COVID right now, right? And evidently, cancer and asthma and he can't confirm it, but I think he's probably got monkeypox too. The interesting thing about this though was that it was the oil that was sprayed on his mom's car when she was driving him to school as a kid that gave him the cancer that he had when he was 70. But his team says he doesn't have cancer. So even in just simple messaging, delivering a basic speech, this guy has problems up and down. But they're wrestling with other things, Eric, and you touched on it. Middle America doesn't pay attention to the day to today. They're not watching the jot and and going, oh, they did this move, and now we've got to make this move. They do know that they're paying four and a half to $5 a gallon for gas. And they do know that two years ago, that same gallon was a dollar 89. And they know that the gallon of milk that used to cost 5 bucks in the store now costs them 7 to $11. Depending on what they're getting. And they just know that in general, everything has gone up in price and they're what they're bringing home and pay has gone down in value. That may be why the Republicans have seen, since the 2020 election, 1 million registered Democrats register as Republicans,
Dr. Irwin Redlener on Exactly How Many Boosters We Need
"Oh my God, here we are again. Your tweet, if you follow me, you're probably vaccinated good, but if you don't have the full four shots, you just aren't fully vexed in light of dangerous new variants here and more coming, and we still need masks and separation at times. Please be smart, get the four. I just, by the way, you have been kind enough to actually talk to personal friends of mine. So I have one more that's over 50 that only has one booster, and for some reason, thinks that she shouldn't get the second booster or needs to wait till I don't know they have the new variant specific one or something. Can you just read it? And also she has asthma and allergies and stuff that would, I would think make it more important that you get your second booster, correct? If you're over 50? Certainly yes. But get her on the phone right now. We'll talk to her. All right, Krista. Yeah. Billy, you know, I'm not even sure the four are going to be enough. I know people don't want to hear that. Nobody in my family wants to hear that that I know for sure, but the fact of the matter is that we still keep calling the first two shots quote unquote fully vaccinated. It just is not. Yeah. And you basically, you know, at this point, to the new variant, you won't have anything, really, that's going to help you that much. Yeah, you personally got another friend who was over 50 who didn't have any boosters. It was somehow it was double vax and somehow scared of the booster because of misinformation. So that misinformation barrier is very powerful. And we're going to have to keep plugging away here, but we still only have two thirds of people that are quote unquote fully facts with the two shots. And way less than half of the population actually has booster, even one. So it's a
U.S. Army Recruitment Is Down 40%
"Numbers are so low. It's ridiculous and the army in particular, the numbers are down 40%. It's gotten to the point where some legislature are talking about drafting women for God's sakes, which is totally insane. I'll just say it flat out. I don't believe that women should be in combat. Think of what happens to man. Imagine how much worse that'll get with women and they're talking about allowing people with medical conditions asthma ADHD and whatever they got to do illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as young children and this is all because the DoD is trying to make an excuse. They're saying it's a tight job market. They're blaming the lockdowns, which Democrats imposed, by the way, but the truth of the matter is it's messaging and no one wants to serve under this particular president. That's the truth. So we are building an army, God forgive me of metrosexuals and this needs to stop the CRT, the DEI, the SEL training of our troops. I know there's some good ones in there. I know there's plenty of good ones, but I'm telling you the left is doing a number on our military and is absolutely a shame. It's a shame of what's happening to our military.
Lance Christensen: Why Do Education Adminstrators Force Medical Decisions on Children
"But I don't mind if a parent wants to make that decision for their child But what we're talking about is parents being stripped of those decisions Here in California we're about to pass a law that it's passed out of committee now It's got one more step to go before it comes law that a child can consent to give the COVID vaccine at school without their parents knowledge or permission Lance your child do your children your children fully aware of your family's medical history or what's in their file No not their own I mean I have kids who do regular medical treatments for asthma and allergies Do we get regular injections for You've got to be very conscientious That's how he thinks mixed with other things And you can't just go out and blindly put things into that bodies Remember to these teachers and administrators at schools that are so in favor of this they're not the ones that will be with the children during the summer or at night when something goes wrong They're not the ones that are going to be rushing into the hospital or trying to schedule an appointment or try to figure out the billing and costs when all these things come full fruition So if a pair wants to make that cost benefit analysis and they decide that this is the direction we go well that's fine It's on them But the second that we start coercing and that's most of these parents are having to sign these forms under duress These their children want to just live a normal life They just want to play soccer and go on activities and field trips But they're being or even in California They just want to walk at graduation They participated fully in class but now they can't walk to graduation because we have people who are dictatorial in their approach And frankly I don't understand why especially a lot of the education administrators feel like they've got to force a medical decision over something that has no impact on these children
Levi & Jennie Lusko Share the Tragic Story of Losing Their Daughter
"Next thing. But for him to say, okay, now I'm ready to just relax because my message is done and now we can enjoy. Family day with our kids. And this is in the driveway. In the driveway my mom's house. So now you walk in. So my brother runs out and says, lenya needs you. And so I run in and my mom had asthma, Olivia, our oldest has asthma, Levi has asthma, it's kind of a normal thing in our life to have inhalers and albuterol nebulizer and everything. But she wasn't taking her medicine that night and my mom, I walk in and letting us sitting on the counter and my mom's trying to give her the nebulizer, but she just wasn't taking it. And so she turns pale and just passes out on the kitchen counter. Levi runs in because he had just parked the car. He runs in and just immediately he's so good in these situations just starts doing what he had learned of CPR and mouth to mouth and I'm just like all of a sudden realizing, okay, this is a bad situation. I'm praying. It's going to be okay. It's going to be okay. And we call 9-1-1. And it's winter in Montana it's December 20th. So the roads are icy and it's snowing outside and it's so the paramedics finally come and come in and take them to the hospital. And I just felt this cold feeling of like, this is not happening and this is not going to end well. I could just feel the grimness in their faces. I think when they were working. And I had asked them while they were working on it and I said, does she have a heartbeat? Does she have a heartbeat? And they said, not right now. And so she was coded non responsive in the house. That's when science she was to be with
'Animal Algorithms' Author Eric Cassell on Bees' Miraculous Solar Navigation Skills
"According to your book, Eric, you say that bees. Are able to guess the sun's azimuth, that that they are bees are using the sun to navigate, but you say that apparently bees and ants can manage the necessary computations to do this since it's been shown that they still know the sun's position even when it is not directly visible. So how can a beer and ant know where the sun is if they can't see it even with their tiny brains and eyes? So the way they're doing that apparently and again, this is something we don't fully understand. But there's enough information to know they aren't doing this. They have an algorithm that's programmed into their brain so that they can know the actual location of the sun throughout the day. And then they take that into account when they observe the position of the sun, they know where it actually is as when I use the term asthma, that's a technical term for just the angle of the sun. Any time during the day and then when they're trying to fly a certain direction, let's try to say they're trying to fly northeast. Well, they detect. They know the position of the sun where it should be. And then they know the fact that the time of day it is, let's say it's 2 p.m., they know what 2 p.m. the sun is located in a certain location laterally. And then they use that information to compute the path that they want to fly, let's say, northeast. That's a pretty sophisticated mathematical trick and algorithm in the brain of
Marc Lamont Hill: Why Do Children Need to Be Vaccinated, Despite Low Severity Cases?
"Mark kelman hill had the NIH director on his show And this did not get picked up by the media That's why I'm bringing it to you now And he asked the NIH director about the stats Why are we vaccinated all these kids if it just doesn't make sense Now when he says that makes sense here's what he means listen The risk of children getting a severe case of COVID is .0 5% Why are COVID vaccines necessary for children Well I'm not sure when you give that percentage that that really conveys what most people are worried about is my kid at risk I mean go to any pediatric ICU in the country and you will see kids there with COVID Some of whom are on respirators as a result And we have seen a 145 children die these are kids between the age of 5 and 11 of COVID-19 Many of them without any predisposing medical condition that would have made you think they were vulnerable So it may be uncommon but it's certainly all right I have to ask a question about the 145 kids have died How many kids did you count that really didn't die from COVID but you counted as COVID I'll give you an example There are parents that were whistleblowers about a kid that died because of injuries from a car wreck Now they apparently tested and he had COVID and they put it down as a COVID death and the parents were like no this isn't a COVID death He got T boned by a drunk driver That's not a COVID death There was another child Who had an asthma attack And of course in a kid's life couldn't didn't have an inhaler far away from the hospital They test them for
Mark Levin: It's Not Team Vaccinated vs. Team Non-Vaccinated
"So it's not team vaccinated in team unvaccinated It's not the kind of myopic thinking of ignoramuses who just wear the same uniform as the Democrat party I have no doubt these vaccines have saved the lives of many people particularly the elderly And it is certainly possible once you're vaccinated the effects of actually getting the virus are lessened A lot of people believe that too But that was my decision I want to live my life I spoke to my doctors This is what they told me to do That's what I did I don't listen to the TV doctors I don't care what they say Other than Mark Siegel that guy's a genius And there's a few others Sapphire and a few other you understand But I mean for my own personal health they don't know anything about me Heart disease asthma all the rest So there you have it

I put a note of that on twitter on friday poster today at the may two zero side effects be smart. Get the third shot. When you're eligible stay healthy and happy and cdc keep expanding eligibility eleven hundred. People felt obliged to like that two hundred thirty people felt obliged to comment on it. One hundred eleven people re tweeted with or without common. I'm astonished that that's newsy. I just thought it was kind of fun that i was eligible.

"asthma" Discussed on Mayo Clinic Q&A
"At which is when this muscle contracts show an in a severe episode. You'll get plugging of the airways. You get inflammation within the airways and contraction of the muscle and all of these increases the resistance to flow in and out of the lungs and therefore the patient presents with usually with the background of asthma. But not always with a with a cute breathlessness accused squeeze that frequently worse at night. I emphasize not because asthma. Asthma is almost always restoring the night for reasons that are not fully explained and cough wheeze breathlessness very often worse joining the nice over recurrent nights. At that's how accused asper and as you sit across as the physician sits across the desk from that patient at you may be able to hear the weeds without using a stethoscope. Sometimes if it's very very severe we disappears because the lungs the shifting the patient is shifting. Show little air in and out of the lungs develop. What's called the silent chest. And that reigns asthma very severe indeed. And that's when other tests have spectrometry our peak flow measurement of the arterial oxygen in the finger with a pulse. Limiter these sort of basic investigations. Become very important. And then how do you treat them well. And if you've if your firm and your diagnosis. Both in adult and childhood inhalation therapy is the way to begin an inhalation therapy for the treatment the more severe asthmatic long-term inhaled bronchodilator inhaled. Corticosteroids are a cornerstone of the treatment. For the treatment of acute severe. I slept nebulizer bronco dye lasers the machine you plug in the wall and put a rather larger dose of bronchodilators- such as albuterol as it's called the united states and possibly an article energy and for the patient to inhale if the problem is in the airway. It's best to get the drugs. We need directly to the airway. Though the inhale root is by far the treatment of joyce secondly if the episode of severe is critical to give the patient corticosteroids and they can be given earlier. Intravenously usually orally a sufficient and a- dose of the region forty to sixty milligrams of redness celona day over a period of days in detrimental doses so inhaled bronchodilators- in larger doses and corticosteroids and if the patients not responding then admission to the hospital to make sure that these mentions are administered efficiently and to observe the patients progress because it can go at the pay the defaults majority of patients improve but some do not and may need more intensive treatment and in the critical care units. We talked a little bit earlier about triggers. And i'm wondering when we hear people say things like exercise induced asthma or allergen induced. Asthma are those just their particular triggers. I was going to bring. I'm glad you brought that up. Exercise induced asthma is particularly in. Children is extremely column. Now it depends on the climate you live in. I mean Living in the british climbers in the cold winters the classical trigger for teenage. I sma is cross country running so the teenagers out in code dry air and cold.

"With those features and oslo. Hoste be top of your list for diagnosis. There are other conditions that may do us in late adult life it may merge into copd and indeed there is an overlap syndrome and but the younger patients perhaps the nonsmoking younger patients and those symptoms must make the finishing. Think about us as a diagnosis you know previously. We had talked with copd about Imaging studies or lung function tests. Are those Definitive in the diagnosis of asthma. It's an interesting question. Imaging is not particularly helpful. Even even for uzma you may see with what c. t. coming even with c. t. skinny and the features are never diagnostic biolog- imaging may show and over in place a chest but really not a whole lot out even sometimes quite severe as attics lung function. Testing is critical because it will demonstrate to you that the patient blowing out into the lung function shade. that they're they're airflows obstructed and very important to this part of us is if you give them the inhaler at the the bronco dilation hater and you measure their lung function again afterwards. It should have improved. Sometimes the is going through a severe episode. You won't demonstrate any improvement so you've got to be careful to interpret lung function test by tests and always always take into account the history. There are some other rare conditions that that that said that masquerade. Is oslo sometimes a central tumor in the large airway. And so the patient that doesn't respond to inhalers who was severe airflow obstruction but doesn't respond to inhalers may need other investigation. I want to get onto that. I wanted to ask you something before. I forget to ask it. Do we know why as often improves as individuals. Age there's note of it no. There's no no definitive. it's a very interesting. There may be differences between boys and girls but it improves. It tends to improve in the teenage years but those of us who see adults as another physician myself am 'em we. We've the asthmatics that we pick up in their twenties and thirties. If you take a careful enough history you'll often find that. They had asthma in childhood. So am but but the reason why it improves whether it's hormonal or otherwise. It is unclear but it does tend to come back on. If if you've been a childhood asthmatic and a disappears when you're fourteen years of age and then at the age of twenty five you in you you might be allergic to pollen and you get an upper. Aspire to track infection given the right set of triggers at it may set it off again so the tendency for to occur. Is there john what is meant by an asthma attack. In how do you treat it when it occurs right. This is once again. A very important question and i described earlier. The pathology of asmara's like the airways narrow and the get inflamed. You get more mucus form because the body responds to to to infection by making mucus because mucus carries infection away so the airways get inflamed the airway says it says to the bobby. I don't like that tries to narrow..
Rep. Chip Roy Reacts to Biden Withholding Monoclonal Antibodies From Florida and Texas
"Is even more horrifying And we have the Montgomery County judge here in Texas, which is near Houston. Who posted on Facebook yesterday, the day before. I'm not sure if you saw it where he right. He wrote out the 2000 Texans that were benefiting from the treatment that they had put in place to have a clinic or set up there to run these mono monoclonal antibody treatment. And it was successful. And this is where the vaccinated and unvaccinated and then now you've got the Democratic leadership in Washington coming in and saying no, no, no. We're going to step in and interfere with the market and create a problem that didn't really exist. And I look, I wrote a letter to the HHS on Monday, lighting them on fire about this and raising this issue up the flagpole and then load the whole We get 24 hours later, they were gonna have a briefing on Friday. We had that briefing today, Mark And I asked twice. I got cut off. And then I got back in Q asking a second time. Hey, how many, Uh, doses do you currently have a supply? How many can be made per month and what's the demand? You tell me the numbers. You show me how there's some massive national shortage that you've got to interfere, and they would never answer the question. Literally, he said. Well, we'll just have to get back to you. The numbers to wait you're stepping in and rationing care. Rationing what Texas can get, and you can't even tell me what the numbers are its political. They started off of saying seven states have 70% of the demand on this stuff and get never mind in January. It'll be 10 different states Mark because we know how this virus works. And yet that's what they're doing. It's political. It's purposeful and people's lives at stake. And they're doing it because they don't want to talk about treatment. Not just this. But after cork wine back when that was more effective. Let me tell you something about, uh Hattrick chloroquine. I've been taking that for months. Have heart disease and asthma. Has an harm me in any way.
Emory to Update Med School Curriculum to Include Climate Risks
"Climate change increases the risks of many health problems such as heat stroke and asthma despite this my peers and i as we sat in our first year medical school lecture halls. We really heard. No mention of this whatsoever. A malign laney is a student at the emory university school of medicine on their own time. She and another student studied the connections between climate change and health and they look for opportunities in their classes. Where these connections could be taught. We ended up really one by one going through every single lecture. We ever went through throughout our medical school curriculum. They developed a proposal to integrate climate change content into the standard course of study for first year medical students. For example in a class on geriatric medicine students could learn about the growing risk of dehydration and heat stroke for older adults when studying infectious diseases. They can learn. How warming affects the spread of mosquito borne diseases. Emory university approved their proposal. So faculty and students are now working together to make sure. Tomorrow's physicians are better prepared to practice medicine in a warming

The Risks of Using Bleach for Cleaning
"Cleaning. Products can be hazardous landing hundreds of thousands of children in us. Emergency rooms and the product. Most commonly associated with injury was bleach. Which can be toxic even if used as directed. We've known that those with asthma. Who work with cleaning products day in and day out can suffer adverse respiratory effects of worsening of symptoms declining lung function inflamed airways but even cleaning workers without asthma can be affected even below so-called acceptable exposure levels cleaners with or without reactive airways can suffer a substantial increase in lung function. Okay but that's people who clean for a living. Although we've known that occupational use of leech may have adverse respiratory health effects but it was unknown whether just common domestic use of bleach in the household may book lungs at risk until now bleach use was significantly associated with nearly five times yards of non allergic adult onset asthma as well as ongoing lower respiratory symptoms such as chronic cough. The way bleach works is as such a strong pro oxidant that the thought is that can lead to like leaky longs and allow allergens to penetrate this phenomenon of cleaning product induced. Asthma has been known for decades. Three quarters of the dozens of population is looking into it. Found increased risk of asthma or nasal inflammation. Ideally safer clean products should be available. Unfortunately this body of evidence has been largely ignored by the manufacturers and commercial cleaning companies and most of workers put at risk. Are women in fact. That may help. Explain some of the gender differences and asthma. The relatively high frequency of bleach us for home cleaning by women around the world together with a strong association between bleach using non allergic asthma emphasizes the need for reconsidering the use of bleach for cleaning.
Childbirth in the 19th Century
"Mid nineteenth century didn't have anything close to what we would consider modern medicine. The germ theory of infection still didn't exist and many medical professionals still believed in things like my asthma's and humor's and would prescribe things like bloodletting patients also at this time. The mortality rate for women in childbirth was significantly higher than what it is today. The primary cause of death was something called peripheral fever also known as child bed fever. It was a disease that would strike women within days of giving birth and it often lead to raging. Fevers putrid pus. Admitting from the birth canal open sores in the abdomen and finally sepsis and death. The maternity wards at hospitals at this time in europe were primarily for lower class women and often prostitutes the deal. Was that women who came to the hospital. Could receive free care but their care would usually be overseen by students as it was a training hospital. When someone weiss arrived at vienna general it had to separate maternity wards. That were run quite differently. One ward was run by male doctors and the other ward was run by female midwives however the outcome in the two wards were radically different. The word with the doctors had a mortality rate. That was five times. That of the ward the midwives. The reputation of the doctors ward was so bad that women would often cry and plead not to go there and there were some that would hold off on their arrival so they could give birth in the street as if they gave birth in route to the hospital. They could get the same benefits as if they gave birth in the hospital. Shockingly women who gave birth in the street had a lower mortality rate than those who gave birth in the doctor's ward

What are the symptoms of most people get a white causes it and and how does traditional medicine typically deal with this problem will allergies have been around for a long time so it's not a new problem it's when your immune system makes antibodies usually called aegean antibodies to something that you're breathing enter exposed to the environment like a dust allergy or a pollen allergy grass allergy and. When that happens these mast cells. That contain histamine dumped. Histamine calls all symptoms that we recognize as allergy symptoms congestion. Sneezing itchy nose. Itchy eyes watery eyes sometimes using tightness in the chest stick it can contribute to asthma and one of the things that sort of gets overlooked is just how exhausted people who have acted allergies concealing relate Just loma Fatigue so those are the classic symptoms. Even though it's not new the prevalence is unfortunately increasing There were people nowadays with allergies actual allergies than there were fifty years ago hundred years ago and we can talk about some of the reasons why that happens in typically.

That will come down if they violate the law. That republicans pass we're experiencing this right now. In scottsdale i gave my speech at the scottsdale unified school district. A couple of days ago. Where i told the scottsdale unified school district. They are breaking arizona. Law by mandating masks on children. Despite governor doug ducey is signed into law and they basically shrug it off and i say delta variant we can do whatever we want so amber. Let me connect to things for you. The reason why the head of the san antonio school district thinks can they can do whatever they want is because when they see democrats flee the state of texas to try to block quorum and no one gets arrested. It plays into the narrative that the regime of the media will protect you if you rebel against republicans but if republicans rebel against democrats they will crush

Obviously they're not an option for younger kids formula and just to clarify all meter dose inhalers would include include a bronco data like albuterol and inhaled corticosteroid that cracked. They should be using spaces for both exactly. I mean i think the message would be good for a puffer a mirror those and kill of any sword. You're much better off. You should be using the space okay. Great 'nother audience questions Humidifiers are good for asthma patients.

"Same council with asthma. You're much off use instead the stairways in their ways to get inflammation. So how'd you do that. You know there are a particularly in the younger kids. Unin generally pediatrics. Two ways to deliver medication into their ways. What one would be to nebulizer. The midst you is generally with a negli- another one would be to the meteorology held the papers. We call it this way of tweet in bronchial diseases in general are equivalent terms. How well the medication delivers into the lungs. So if you have a medication that comes into puffer and asthma. Puffer and the same medication comes into nebulizer. You can choose either way. But they're important difference here on the nebulizer a will take longer okay and also will be associated with more side effects. Reason is that When you're delivering a medication nebulizer your knicks of larger and smaller particles into airways a bunch of that gets into your throat and mouth and from there could be absorbed and be potentially cost for side effects. When you're using a puffer with his speak sir. Very important this this clarifications very important when you use a puffer with speaker. Which is the proper way to do that. We can discuss how to do it if we if we need to do that. But if you use the same medication with a puffer spacer. The bulk of the medication. The large particles where stained chamber. And you'll deliver into their ways on the only the smaller particles that one the ones that actually get into this more ways so you have the same effect with less side effects. So okay we have. We have talked about an important one nebulizer versus puffer when using the nebulizer. You have to use it with him. Ask in the younger kids without pretty much. Useless unifies studies have shown that even you had a mass an inch way from your face the little influence very much impaired so younger kids as say lift defined younger kiss for below mask. Use a nebulizer with them ask. Older kid could use a nebulizer but again with an interface. That's appropriate amount piece and that you put into your mouth. So that's the proper way to deliver. But occasions with a nebulizer equivalent on power is the chamber with a mouthpiece for the older kids and with a mass for the younger kids. Okay so that's the delivery modes for medications.

Because i imagine little kids can't do this the pulmonary function testing or the spiro matry I couldn't imagine asking like my kids when they were three to do this. Exactly and then going back to the discussion. Few minutes ago you know they diagnose. Lavazza is a very much clinical diagnosis. You put together to simpson's What's been going on the response to therapy and really there is no h limit to diagnose asthma if a patient has the pattern that's consistent with asthma this allergic backward on response as expected to asthma. Therapy you can make the diagnosis asthma. Really there's no age of that Limit for that and actually the more severe asthma. You can backtrack on find asthma in infancy. So those things that started initially reason you don't with little with kohl's and things like that. Obviously at that point they were diagnosed with asthma because there was not enough evidence. But you could see that starting very early in life and infants the actually the manifestation plasma now if a patient has several episodes saying the first second third year of life you know you can very much diagnosed asthma in her. There is no h limit for a diagnosis of that's perfect. I think that gets a lot of misconceptions. That i've seen over the of my career where they used to call it something else like reactive airway disease or maybe. Just call it easy. But if it's a pattern and it's causing problems with the child that seems like The evidence shows that kids are going to be better treated.

No one is asthma versus. Maybe a panic attack symptoms where they feel like they can't breathe. You know once again If you need to fit a powder gave it is the first time this is happening is probably not going to be easy. But particularly if a child is in the midst of this panic attack and having this difficult breathing. Heavy breathing noisy breathing. You know it's impossible to know but then if you if you have The story goes along. The lines of the child has asthma house. Being diagnosed with asthma and on top of that happens to have have this. Abc's where you have this panic attack. That's because even becomes easier because you know the typical symptoms for asthma would be say coffin reason and difficult breathing and this put another official here when we see. We know what we're talking about a high pitch sound. That happens when you break doubt. Okay when you breathe out very important. That's another thing. I discussed in a an indepth in click. You know you're part. They will say my child will have you taken note of that may or may not be reason unique. Do put the follow up question. Okay what you mean by wheezing if it happens as high pitched on what you bring it out. Okay that's reason with panic attack and other upper airway problems did noisy brings different. Tends to be pretty loud. Tends to be more so when you bring in so we call that strider so we'll send something like that okay. That is breathing in. That's not a reason and it's not associated with us so those are the things that will give you a hint where this is going and you mentioned like the response tell beater geraldo. Would you expect someone who's having a panic attack the have a an improvement. Very quickly with albuterol. Have you seen it happen where it does help or not. What depends if it.

These three categories are symptoms or signs of asthma. Not all of them have to be present the same time and that is the tricky part about diagnosed with asthma way. You made a diagnosis by putting together the sequence of events that give you episodes of coughing wheezing or difficulty breathing. Okay so that's one part now. The other part is are they prone to asthma. And that's where we go about to your question. you know. Kids come with from families to have allergies say asthma itself or fever seasonal problems or they themselves have allergic rhinitis or eggs. Emma or food allergies dead. Some marker that a patient is pruned developed a wide variety of allergy conditions and asthma. Being one of them. So you have the second component one episode of nature symptoms to the background predisposition to develop asthma under a third part. That is important is to you. Know how what happens to those symptoms. Do they respond to typical Medications we use asthma. So that's how it goes. You know In terms of making the diagnosis You know we can talk a little bit Pulmonary function the role of it. But those are the key parts there you know. I don't have symptoms episode of nature of it. The a topic brag micrometer large background on how the symptoms respond to anti-asthma therapy perfect. So it sounds like you know it's a pattern of putting together this these symptoms and background and past medical history. But when this is starting to happen early in life is as my diagnose you can make in very young children or is it something that we need time and a pattern to recognize. Yeah exactly that's the thing you know thing is The symptoms as i mentioned a very common from other conditions and the challenge about diagnosing as my young kids is one. There's enough time for them to develop the powder so save your child that has been used for the first time. What may or may not yes. But we just don't know and even the first couple of times may or may not be so the more episode. You have destroyer diagnosis become and if it happened several times already. And then your pediatrician has her reason. And then you have been prescribed say a bronchodilator bureau say and it just happens that though symptoms to respond well to this intervention. You know you're very much. Pathway diagnosed with asthma. But let's me perfect something that's important you know when with the families clinic and i asked him i mean we don't make a difference Many times they say yes but the follow up question would be how long it takes for ability to make you better because somebody occasion that expected to work within fifteen thirty minutes.

So she gave him a pen and paper. We'll start scribbling down questions to an hour saying like I wear all we miss you sound like we're in a hospital in Philadelphia. And I kinda remember the asthma attack and had a huge not on my head. So Michael Callahan, asthma attack. I fell hit myself from in the hospital. Okay. Makes sense. No, right. Thanks for your help everybody it made sense. But it also made no sense. I have no recollection of there was no horns trumpets with things. They played. I didn't see a light. Jason felt like if he died wouldn't he remember it? He wasn't quite himself yet. But he was starting to see the funny and things like if you had an asthma attack. Why were his legs or he thought? Maybe there's a joke in there somewhere. He jotted it down a couple of other ideas. And then he turned to the most pressing thing on his mind, I've been the hospital before and I've had times I've been there for a couple of hours. He'd get a crazy Bill for something. So logistically, I'm thinking like, okay, let's get the hell out of here. Before they kill us financially. God rather live financially in Daf. You hear that weasing? Jason's laugh. That's the asthma. Jason has had asthma his whole life. So his lungs work harder than yours or mine for every breath and every laugh. At the hospital. The doctors told Jason they thought the attack might have been brought on by sulfites in the red wine. He drank just before getting on stage. They wanted to hold onto him for more survey Shen, but he refused. He wanted to get home to his kids. He signed documents stating that he was being released against doctors orders. Then they waited for stuff. One person brought back is pants than another guy came into shoes. Each item one by one until the last thing his favourite, Harry Potter t-shirt. It was sliced in half when they were trying to save his life. It also weird. So he made a mental note to make a joke about that too. He didn't have short so Dion gave him her hoodie the left the hospital in a daze and gun the car. Jason felt like this thing that he just lives through dying and coming back to life. It was all starting to sink in hard like a red light. It was a guy walking across the crosswalk. And I was saying like if I didn't come back that guy will probably still be walking across the crosswalk. Like the world keeps happening. I'm just not. If I didn't wake backup. I wouldn't know that I didn't like back up like it would just been. You know, kids don't have a daddy. Now. My wife says something to machine said that she was a widow for five minutes and didn't know it. I think that hit me harder than even when the doctor told me that he was dead. Severe asthma attacks were not new for Jason when he was a kid growing up in northeast Baltimore. His asthma kept his parents on tenterhooks. They were constantly worried about him weeks after his attack or Jason I got in the car and drove to his old neighborhood..
