    Vocal cord dysfunction (VCD) can mimic asthma or occur in association with asthma. VCD represents paradoxical vocal cord closure during inspiration. This can be recognized by direct visualization via fiber-optic laryngoscopy, or a reduction in the inspiratory limb of the flow-volume curve (Fig. ).In VCD without asthma, the expiratory limb of the flow volume curve is usually normal. Ralph E. Gay, Jeffrey S. Brault, in Evidence-Based Management of Low Back Pain, Summary Description. Traction therapy is a broad term used to refer to several methods of using mechanical force to separate the lumbar vertebrae along the inferosuperior axis of the spine. Traction can either be intermittent (alternating traction and relaxation with cycles of a few minutes), sustained.

      To observe the clinical effect of combined intermittent traction with warm needling for cervical radiculopathy. A total of cases with cervical radiculopathy were randomly allocated into an observation group and a control group. Cases in the observation group were treated with intermittent traction coupled with warm needling, whereas cases in the control group were treated with warm. The available studies on the efficacy of lumbar traction do not allow clear conclusions because of severe methodologic flaws. The current trial aimed to overcome these shortcomings. Methods. Patients with at least 6 weeks of nonspecific low back pain were selected. High-dose traction was compared with sham (or low-dose) traction.

    The Cochrane Library is a collection of high-quality, independent evidence to inform healthcare decision-making. Six databases are available including the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and a register of controlled trials. Allergen immunotherapy, also known as desensitization or hypo-sensitization, is a medical treatment for environmental allergies, such as insect bites, and asthma. Immunotherapy involves exposing people to larger and larger amounts of allergen in an attempt to change the immune system's response.. Meta-analyses have found that injections of allergens under the skin are effective in the.

This chapter examines the definitions, similarities and differences between asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), drawing heavily on the latest information on asthma and COPD that is included in the guidelines on the diagnosis and management of these diseases from two widely respected global initiatives, the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) and the.

The average traction force was calculated from the individual average traction force (percentage of the total body weight) over all the treatment sessions: treatment group 44% and control group 19%. Since the actual intervention contrast (25%) was much larger than the predetermined minimal 33 contrast, the likelihood of differences in effect.

Efficacy standard was reported in (%) trials, but of them used composite outcome measures, which categorized treatment efficacy into four grades (cured, markedly effective, effective, and ineffective) according to change in symptoms, the other 16 trials used single outcome measure for therapeutic effect.

To assess the efficacy of motorized continuous traction for low back pain. 5-week traction treatment and medical consumption at the 6-month Clinical observations suggest that in these.

Lumbar traction is applied with a harness (with self-adhesive strapping) that is put around the lower rib cage and the iliac crest. A head halter sling is used for cervical traction.

The dura- tion and level of exerted traction can be varied in a continuous or intermit- tent modez4 Of the different traction techques, manual traction (ie, trac. Researchers evaluated the efficacy of a short course of oral prednisolone for acute asthma in children of school age.

Cyriax did not advocate the use of cervical traction to the same extent as lumbar and was of the opinion that it was used ‘far too often’ (Cyriax ).

A systematic review of the literature on the efficacy of traction for neck and back pain was. Skeletal traction (also referred to as distraction), is one of the most ancient (as well as one of the most modern) medical treatments known.

The Egyptian papyri (circa 3, B.C.), uncovered by Edwin Smith in identify the use of axial traction for the purpose of reducing spinal fracture dislocations as well as the treatment of many other other [ ]. Iodine is critical to human health. It forms the basis of thyroid hormones and plays many other roles in human biochemistry.

While the thyroid gland contains the body’s highest concentration of iodine, the salivary glands, brain, cerebrospinal fluid, gastric mucosea, breasts, ovaries and a part of the eye also concentrate iodine. Bengaluru: When cases of coronavirus, the virus that has killed more than 3, people in China, were first reported in India, the AYUSH Ministry advised citizens to use homoeopathy to prevent infection.

A system of alternative medicine, homoeopathy courts deep popularity in India, so much so that many are known to believe that it’s an Indian system. This Synopsis Book reports on advances and key observations that will impact the care of children with allergic and immunologic diseases now and in the near future.

Reviewers have selected articles that provide clinical pearls and insights that are applicable for daily practice as well as studies that challenge our current practice and provide data that may lead to new approaches for diagnosis.

Definition Traction is an orthopedic treatment that involves placing tension on a limb, bone or muscle group using various weight and pulley systems. TYPES: Straight or running traction (e.g. Buck’s traction, pelvic traction) involves a straight pulling force in one plane. Balanced suspension traction (e.g.

pelvic sling, Thomas leg splint) involves exertion a pull while the limb is supported. Cervical traction is one of the most common methods of treating neck and arm pain, but its effects are poorly understood. This study tested the hypothesis, firstly, that mechanical traction is effective in relieving clinical symptoms and, as a secondary part of a study described elsewhere, 1 that the mechanism may be a reduction in muscle tension.

One hundred patients with neck and arm pain. AbstractThe aim of this review was to analyse critically the literature on the effectiveness of cervical traction for patients suffering from neck pain, with or without radiating symptoms.

A computer-aided search of databases was carried out from tousing a combination of key words. Five randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and five case studies were selected and critically appraised.

Asthma is a very serious public health problem. Although traditional drugs work well for most, they're not good enough for others with a more severe disease.

The approach to asthma has shifted to immune system modulation by biological drugs, and they're making a difference. But how good are they, and what else is out there?. You conduct a clinical trial to test whether a new drug relieves the symptoms of arthritis better than a placebo.

At the end of 2 weeks, participants the control and experimental groups are asked to rate their pain on a scale of 1 to   Curr Allergy Asthma Rep. Jul. 6(4) Breuer K, Werfel T, Kapp A.
