What causes bronchial asthma?
Bronchial asthma is a chronic inflammation of the bronchial tubes due to allergic reactions, viruses, or recent infections, which causes increased airway sensitivity, coughing, narrowing of the airways, and difficulty breathing. Inhalants, leukotriene antagonists, and bronchodilators are used for treatment.
Symptoms similar to asthma can also be caused by heart failure and other heart diseases. If you experience symptoms for asthma, it is recommended that you see a doctor as soon as possible.
What is a travel clinic?
It is a clinic that provides medical support for the health care of people who travel abroad, travel overseas, or study abroad, and offers various vaccinations to prevent contracting infectious diseases in the destination country.
What kind of vaccinations are required when traveling abroad?
The vaccinations you need for your stay abroad will vary depending on your destination. In addition to the regular vaccinations, depending on the region, there are vaccinations for yellow fever, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, rabies, and meningococcal meningitis. Additional vaccinations for tetanus and Japanese encephalitis may also be required, as well as chicken pox and mumps for children.
What is smoking cessation treatment?
Until now, smoking cessation treatment was not covered by insurance and was self-funded, so the majority of people who wanted to quit smoking were difficult to do so. Now, if the result of the screening test for nicotine dependence is 5 points or higher, and the patient is diagnosed as nicotine dependent, the treatment can be covered by insurance.
The treatment is called nicotine replacement therapy, and instead of smoking cigarettes and letting nicotine enter the body, a patch is applied to the body that can absorb nicotine through the skin so that it becomes the same effect as nicotine entering the body.
In the beginning, you can use a high amount of nicotine, and then gradually reduce the amount of nicotine so that you don't experience withdrawal symptoms, and finally, you can live without the patch.
In most cases, the desire to smoke is due to nicotine addiction, but it can also be due to stress or psychological factors. If you want to quit but can't, or if you don't know what to do, please feel free to contact us first.
