- Purulent sinusitis - how to prevent the disease
Treatment - how an integrated approach
It is often faced with a situation where people start to treat yourself, take a variety of means, and only if they are ineffective in the later stages of the disease go to the doctor. This is particularly unacceptable in purulent forms of inflammation. Treatment of purulent sinusitis can successfully apply multiple therapeutic methods, including methods offered by traditional medicine.
The basic principles of purpose therapy
The sinus congestion occurs pus, so the first thing should be to carry out activities aimed at removing the pus. There should also be assigned to drugs that are actively inhibit the growth of pathogenic organisms (antibiotic therapy based on sensitivity to the drugs). Remove pus from the sinus cavities in several ways:
- Using the method of evacuation with a soft catheter (a method of sine-evacuation)
- Special low-impact sinus puncturing needle
Both methods are used in practice in the treatment of purulent sinusitis
. For sinus evacuation using special soft catheters, through which pus is removed and then washed with the sinus cavity
. The drug solution was injected into a sinus cavity of a syringe, and then is sucked together with the content sinuses
. During this procedure may cause discomfort, the occurrence of which is associated with the creation in the nasal cavity of negative pressure
. If purulent sinusitis has acquired a heavy, prolonged course and responds poorly to medical therapy, the procedure of sinus puncture leads to a rapid recovery
. With low-impact needle punctured sinus cavity, pus is removed and washed with antibacterial, antiseptic
. A common solution is to wash the sea salt solution, cooked in broth chamomile (in one liter of herbal decoction should dissolve 1, 5 tablespoons of salt)
. Such a remedy effectively eliminates phenomenon of purulent inflammation
. Timely puncture prevents the spread of infection and severe complications of purulent sinusitis (osteomyelitis, meningitis
Meningitis - an inflammation of the meninges
and others). After removal of the pus from the sinus cavity observed regression of inflammation, improves overall health of the patient, recovery occurs.
Thermal treatments with purulent sinusitis
When purulent inflammation in the onset of the disease should warn against conducting any warms, thermal procedures. In this situation, the heat will contribute to the progression of infection, more severe course of the inflammatory process. The phenomena of intoxication and pain will increase, leading to a deterioration in the general condition. When purulent sinusitis
Sinusitis - when a puncture is required
violated the outflow of contents from sinuses, so heating of the area contributes to the sinuses are not subsiding, and the progression of inflammation. It is a mistake to start with warm nose with physiotherapy. This type of treatment is justified only in the stage of resolution of purulent inflammation, as a method of rehabilitation therapy.
Heat treatments effectively complement the full range of therapeutic interventions, but they should be used strictly according to the indications and at a certain stage of the disease. Application of UHF therapy blue lamp and other procedures with thermal effect is categorically unacceptable if sinusitis combined with inflammation of the ear, and other complications.
