At issue – Bronchitis..

Bronchitis - Grpahic 3a

You thought you were finally shaking that cold, but this morning your cough is worse than ever. You’re coughing up phlegm by the cupful, and it feels as if someone spent the night tap-dancing on your chest. You’ve probably developed acute bronchitis, an often painful infection in the major bronchial tubes (airways) leading to the lungs.

Bronchitis is an inflammation of the mucous membranes of the bronchi (the larger and medium-sized airways that carry airflow from the trachea into the more distal parts of the lung parenchyma).

Bronchitis can be divided into two categories: acute and chronic.

Acute bronchitis is characterized by the development of a cough or small sensation in the back of the throat, with or without the production of sputum (mucus that is expectorated, or “coughed up”, from the respiratory tract).

Acute bronchitis often occurs during the course of an acute viral illness such as the common cold or influenza.

Viruses cause about 90% of acute bronchitis cases, whereas bacteria account for about 10%.

Chronic bronchitis, a type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), is characterized by the presence of a productive cough that lasts for three months or more per year for at least two years.

Chronic bronchitis usually develops due to recurrent injury to the airways caused by inhaled irritants.

Cigarette smoking is the most common cause, followed by exposure to air pollutants such as sulfur dioxide or nitrogen dioxide, and occupational exposure to respiratory irritants.

Individuals exposed to cigarette smoke, chemical lung irritants, or who are immunocompromised have an increased risk of developing bronchitis.

Acute bronchitis…

Bronchitis - Grpahic 4

This diagram shows acute bronchitis.

Acute bronchitis is an inflammation of the bronchi usually caused by viruses or bacteria. Acute bronchitis is an acute illness lasting less than three weeks with coughing as the main symptom, and at least one other lower respiratory tract symptom such as wheezing, sputum production, or chest pain.

The coughing, which is a common symptom of the acute bronchitis, develops in an attempt to expel the excess mucus from the lungs. Other common symptoms of acute bronchitis include: sore throat, shortness of breath, fatigue, runny nose, nasal congestion (coryza), low-grade fever, pleurisy, malaise, and the production of sputum.

Acute bronchitis is most often caused by viruses that infect the epithelium of the bronchi, resulting in inflammation and increased secretion of mucus.

Acute bronchitis often develops during an upper respiratory infection (URI) such as the common cold or influenza.

About 90% of cases of acute bronchitis are caused by viruses, including rhinoviruses, coronaviruses, adenoviruses, metapneumovirus, parainfluenza virus, respiratory syncytial virus, and influenza.

Certain viruses such as rhinoviruses and coronaviruses are also known to cause acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis.

About 10% of cases are caused by bacteria, including Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydophila pneumoniae,Bordetella pertussis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Haemophilus influenzae.

Bronchitis may be diagnosed by a health care provider during a thorough physical examination.

Due to the nonspecific signs and symptoms exhibited by individuals with bronchitis, diagnostic tests such as a chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia, a sputum culture to rule out whooping cough or other bacterial respiratory infections, or a pulmonary function test to rule out asthma or emphysema may be used.

Treatment for acute bronchitis is primarily symptomatic. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be used to treat fever and sore throat.

Even with no treatment, most cases of acute bronchitis resolve quickly.

(Sidebar).

exception - big time 1a

Continuing…

As most cases of acute bronchitis are caused by viruses, antibiotics are not generally recommended as they are only effective against bacteria.

Using antibiotics in cases of viral bronchitis promotes the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which may lead to greater morbidity and mortality.

However, even in cases of viral bronchitis, antibiotics may be indicated in certain cases in order to prevent the occurrence of secondary bacterial infections.

Chronic bronchitis…

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease*

Chronic bronchitis, a type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, defined by a productive cough that lasts greater than three months each year for at least two years in the absence of other underlying disease.

Protracted bacterial bronchitis is defined as a chronic productive cough with a positive bronchoalveolar lavage that resolves with antibiotics.

Symptoms of chronic bronchitis may include wheezing and shortness of breath, especially upon exertion and low oxygen saturations.

The cough is often worse soon after awakening and the sputum produced may have a yellow or green color and may be streaked with specks of blood.

Smoking -Graphic 1

Most cases of chronic bronchitis are caused by smoking cigarettes or other forms of tobacco.

Additionally, chronic inhalation of air pollution or irritating fumes or dust from hazardous exposures in occupations such as coal mining, grain handling, textile manufacturing, livestock farming, and metal moulding may also be a risk factor for the development of chronic bronchitis.

Protracted bacterial bronchitis is usually caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae, Non-typable Haemophilus influenzae, or Moraxella catarrhalis.

Individuals with an obstructive pulmonary disorder such as bronchitis may present with a decreased FEV1 and FEV1/FVC ratio on pulmonary function tests.

Unlike other common obstructive disorders such as asthma or emphysema, bronchitis rarely causes a high residual volume (the volume of air remaining in the lungs after a maximal exhalation effort).

Evidence suggests that the decline in lung function observed in chronic bronchitis may be slowed with smoking cessation.

Resolve 2a

According to Webster:“ces·sa·tion,” A bringing or coming to an end; a ceasing:See CEASE.]

Continuing…

What are some of the Treatments for Bronchitis?

Conventional treatment for acute bronchitis may consist of simple measures such as getting plenty of rest, drinking lots of fluids, avoiding smoke and fumes, and possibly getting a prescription for an inhaled bronchodilator and/or cough syrup.

In some cases of chronic bronchitis, oral steroids to reduce inflammation and/or supplemental oxygen may be necessary.

In healthy people with bronchitis who have normal lungs and no chronic health problems, antibiotics are usually not necessary.

In most cases, the cause is a virus and antibiotics will not help. A productive (phlegm-producing) cough may come with acute bronchitis.

This is your body’s way of getting rid of excess mucus. However, if your cough is truly disruptive — it keeps you from sleeping, is so forceful it becomes painful, or it persists for two or three weeks — then your doctor may prescribe a cough suppressant.

In most cases, you should simply do all the things you usually would do for a cold: Take aspirin or acetaminophen for discomfort and drink lots of liquids.

Do not give aspirin to a child aged 18 years of age or younger because of the increased risk of Reye’s Syndrome.

Continue reading below…

If you have chronic bronchitis, your lungs are vulnerable to infections. Unless your doctor advises against it, get a yearly flu shot as well as a vaccination against pneumonia.

One dose of pneumonia vaccine will help protect you from a common type of bacterial pneumonia until the age of 65 when you will likely need a booster. You may need a booster sooner if you have certain other medical problems.

Do not take an over-the-counter cough suppressant to treat chronic bronchitis, unless your doctor advises it. As with acute bronchitis, the productive coughing associated with chronic bronchitis is helpful in ridding the lungs of excess mucus.

In fact, your doctor may even prescribe an expectorant if you have mucus that you cannot easily cough up. However, if you notice any increase in the thickness or amount of the phlegm, you may be coming down with a bacterial infection.

In that case, your doctor may prescribe a 5- to10-day course of broad-spectrum antibiotics, which fight a range of bacteria.

Bronchitis - Page Break

Acute bronchitis is most often caused by a virus, frequently the same one that causes colds, although the flu virus is a common culprit as well. (While acute bronchitis can also be caused by a bacteria or even a fungus, they’re only rarely to blame.)

Acute bronchitis often follows a cold or the flu, when resistance is down and the lungs may already be slightly irritated.

Likewise, anyone whose immune resistance is low or who has any other type of chronic lung irritation or injury, especially from exposure to cigarette smoke or other toxic gases, is at increased risk of developing bronchitis. And the viruses that cause bronchitis can be passed to others much the same way cold and flu viruses are:

An infected person coughs, spraying viral particles either into the air, where they can be breathed in by others, or onto their own hands, where they can be picked up when the person shakes hands with others.

There can be an irritated throat (from the coughing), burning or aching pain just beneath the breastbone, a feeling of tightness in the chest, wheezing or shortness of breath, and a “rattling” sensation in the lungs and chest.

A low-grade fever, chills and achiness may also occur. The irritation caused by the virus in turn leaves the respiratory tract vulnerable to other complications, such as pneumonia.

If you have an underlying chronic disease or suffer from asthma, allergies, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or any other serious respiratory or heart problem, you need to contact your doctor if you develop symptoms of acute bronchitis.

Bronchitis symptoms in infants, the elderly or anyone else with a weak immune system should be treated by a physician.

If you’re otherwise healthy, however, you’ll likely have to allow the infection to simply run its course. Antibiotics, after all, are useless against viral infections.

Fortunately, acute bronchitis generally goes away on its own within a few days or a week, although the cough can sometimes linger for weeks or even months.

This doesn’t mean you have to lie in bed, suffering, and wait for your body to defeat the virus. In this article, we’ll examine ways to help your body heal from a bronchial infection and ease symptoms of the condition.

Move on to the next section for some home remedies to alleviate the congestion and coughing of bronchitis.

Readers Forum – Faith

resurrection - empty tomb 2

According to Webster: “faith,” (in context) Belief, trust and acceptance of God’s Laws and God’s will.

2. Belief that does not rest on empirical proof or material evidence.

3. Loyalty to a person or a thing; allegiance.

Belief in God is not a religion, believing in God is a personal relationship.

Religions are “organizations,” consequently (at least in my humble opinion), as organizations, (at some level, and/or, to some end), are all political.

Accordingly, being that God created man with the ability to reason and gifted him with free will, I personally believe that God is non-partisan when it comes to his disciples.

As I have stated before on more than a few occasions, I am not a religious man, yet I believe in God.

how can that be 1a

Quite simple actually; My mother and father believed in God and I believed in my mother and father.

Within my journey (currently at 72 years), I’ve been audience to more than a few folks who have shared (their opinions) of God and his son Jesus who’s life he sacrificed to cleans our sins.

Barack Obama’s mother was a young woman by the name of Stanley Ann Dunham who literally hated her father, (who was an atheist and a communist) for naming her Stanley, (a boy’s name), ..any way you cut it.

Young Stanley Ann Dunham suffered untold anguish and embarrassment from her peers growing up because of her father’s (stupid) decision to “tag” her with a boy’s name.

Admittedly, I do not have a “Masters Degree” in psychology, nor am I an idiot. Excluding (fire ants), nothing on this planet has the capacity to inflict more anguish and pain than an un-supervised child.

Accordingly, using my God-given right to cast my opinion, I believe that when Stanley Ann Dunham looked around the Russian language classroom she attended at the University of Hawaii – she was looking to select the one man that would most cause her father anguish and pain if she jumped in bed with him, – and of course, as we are all aware of now…

My dad was a good man, he cared a lot about people. The way you write what you write tells me that you’re a lot like my dad, you care a lot about people too.

readers forum - as I see it 3 jpg

Hello Elizabeth, (if you’re still dropping by after more than a year?), …

I have no argument with organized religions, (of any order), as long as they’re benevolent.

Homo sapiens, and/or, human beings, as I have stated in a few prior offerings, are benevolent creatures. By nature we are pretty much open to anything until we’re threatened or provoked.

At which point of course, we respond in (one of two) ways, we fight or we take flight, the same as every other sentient being on this planet.

According to Webster: “sen·tient,” (in context) Experiencing sensations and feelings; having consciousness.

In my view, one of the most troubling versus in the Bible is Genesis 1:27; …

“So God created man in his own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

So what does Genesis 1:27 tell you?

Applying my God-given common sense, Genesis 1:27 tells me that God is neither a man or a woman, God is an entity beyond flesh, beyond sex, and beyond politics.

God is what man was created to strive for, – mankind wasn’t created to strive for power and wealth. Mankind was created to strive for simplicity and harmony.

..and if you’d like to test my conjecture, write and tell me about a time (anytime), when you were happier than when you were holding someone you love.

A dog isn’t much good without a master, but even worse, (at least for America’s taxpayers), a trained dog with an agenda driven master will bite you without hesitation.

Connoting – Take a powder?

take a powder 1a

According to Webster: “con·not·ing,” To suggest or imply in addition to literal meaning.

take a powder - Graphic 2a

Slang; (circa 1920’s) Scram, leave immediately, disappear or stop doing what you’re doing.

Origin: The powder in this case is the type woman use on their face. Women used the phrase when in public to indicate their desire to “powder their noses”, or go to the ladies’ room to freshen their make-up or use the facilities.

“Take a powder” was uttered in many 1920’s period films to women accompanying “mobster types” in public. The most common usage was when the tough-guy didn’t want his lady around to hear the conversation. He would rudely explicate;

take a powder - Graphic 1

..which of course was an “impolite” suggestion to leave the room, ..and quickly.

Alternative: The phrase hails from the early days of medical science, before Modern manufacturing techniques, when most medications came in the form of powders that were mixed with water to drink. Many early medications contained Opiates (such as Morphine) intended to induce sleep.

Accordingly the association of “taking a powder” with sleep, and/or, sending one to the land of nod. (Source, joe-ks.com).

As a Homo sapien totally intrigued with life and all its facets, especially “communication,” ..from time to time I find myself (pondering) the origin of one thing or another?

Not that I’ve (actually) overheard anyone using the phrase; “take a powder” in the last 50 years, ..the phrase was quite common during my childhood.

texting - image 2

Probably because, (at least in my opinion), 21st century folks don’t have time for phrases or clichés, (with twittering), ..and (texting), comprehendible “missives” have been (condensed) to abbreviations and acronyms.

acronym - graphic 2

According to Webster: “ab·bre·vi·a·tion,” (in context) The act or product of shortening a word or a phrase used in writing to represent the complete form, such as; …

Massachusetts - map - graphic

“Mass.” for (Massachusetts), …

United States Marine Corps 1

..or “USMC” for (United States Marine Corps).

Question: How do (abbreviations) differ from (acronyms)?

According to Webster: “ac·ro·nym,” A word formed from the initial letters of a name, such as “WAC” for (Women’s Army Corps), or by combining initial letters or parts of a series of words, such as “radar” for (radio detecting and ranging).

acronym - graphic 1

Question: Now that you’ve all had a moment to “consider” Webster’s definition of (abbreviation) as well as his definition of (acronyms), ..how many of you now totally understand the difference?

my take as well 1

A question for the “questioning”; How many of you that (have lost) your job, ..or have a friend or a neighbor that (have lost) their jobs during the Obama administration, know why you, your friend or your neighbor lost your jobs?

Does anyone think that it was simply bad luck or worse, bad decisions by corporate America and Wall Street?

Corporate America and Wall Street don’t depend on luck or make bad decisions, their world is made up of bankers and economist’s, bankers and economist’s never make decisions that affect them adversely, – you can take that to the bank.

Life at its foundation, the folks that provide the labor to keep the “money lenders” in tall cotton are as close to Webster’s definition of “good,” as humanly possible…

According to Webster: “good,” Being positive or desirable in nature.

money lenders want it all 3c

Man is, (without a doubt), a competitive creature and (as a competitor), man can be ruthless, venal, unscrupulous and even dangerous when it comes to competing for wealth.

Americans are a free people, and a free people, don’t belong to anyone, especially to the money lenders.

Our current body of politicians belong to the money lenders, thus, (at least in my opinion), our “current body” of politicians are not Americans as intended by our founding fathers.

A true American puts his or her nation’s (needs) before their own – our current politicians, (and by current), I include every President, (except John F. Kennedy), Senator and Congress person since (Pres. Woodrow Wilson), that has “sanctioned” the (FED), and/or, the Rothschild family to control America’s currency is not only un-American, but is a “treasonous” violation of his or her oath of office.

Polls, Polling and Polecats..

breaking news - graphic 1a

A new poll out just this morning…

sound familiar - graphic Red 1a

It should, as there (is not) one teleprompter reading buffoon in America, ..male or female, ..that doesn’t give voice to that line at least once a day.

According to Webster: “poll,” (in context) A survey of the public or a sample of public opinion to acquire information.

Checking in with Wikipedia, ..we get;

Polling, or polled operation, in computer science, refers to actively sampling the status of an external device by a client program as a synchronous activity.

Polling is most often used in terms of input/output (I/O), and is also referred to as polled I/O or software-driven I/O.

Polling is sometimes used synonymously with busy-wait polling (busy waiting). In this situation, when an I/O operation is required, the computer does nothing other than check the status of the I/O device until it is ready, at which point the device is accessed. In other words, the computer waits until the device is ready.

Polling also refers to the situation where a device is repeatedly checked for readiness, and if it is not, the computer returns to a different task.

Although not as wasteful of CPU cycles as busy waiting, this is generally not as efficient as the alternative to polling, interrupt-driven I/O.

In a simple single-purpose system, even busy-wait is perfectly appropriate if no action is possible until the I/O access, but more often than not this was traditionally a consequence of simple hardware or non-multitasking operating systems.

Polling is often intimately involved with very low-level hardware. For example, polling a parallel printer port to check whether it is ready for another character involves examining as little as one bit of a byte.

That bit represents, at the time of reading, whether a single wire in the printer cable is at low or high voltage. The I/O instruction that reads this byte directly transfers the voltage state of eight real world wires to the eight circuits (flip flops) that make up one byte of a CPU register.

Polling has the disadvantage that if there are too many devices to check, the time required to poll them can exceed the time available to service the I/O device. Polling can be described in following steps:

1. The host repeatedly reads the busy bit of the controller until it becomes clear.

2. When clear, the host writes in the command register and writes a byte into the data-out register.

3. The host sets the command-ready bit (set to 1).

4. When the controller senses command-ready bit is set, it sets busy bit.

5. The controller reads the command register and since write bit is set, it performs necessary I/O operations on the device. If the read bit is set to one instead of write bit, data from device is loaded into data-in register, which is further read by the host.

6. The controller clears the command-ready bit once everything is over, it clears error bit to show successful operation and reset busy bit (0). (Source, Wikipedia).

Accordingly, when the forward (junk mail) entitled; …

Somali pirates 1

..found it’s way to my inbox, as so many do – I found it barely interesting enough to use as a (filler) offering, ..as my health is still not quite up to where I would like it to be.

Preface - graphic 1a

Now that the movie, “Captain Phillips” about the Maersk Alabama hijacking by Somali pirates is out, we need to inform the public about some facts of that event that haven’t been made public before.

The following article of facts regarding the incident was written by Dr. John “Jack” Wheeler.

Dr. Wheeler was a man of honor: a West Point graduate, a Vietnam veteran, and the man who was the driving force behind financing the construction of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

He fought long and hard for the dignity and honor of the fallen Vietnam War soldiers.

He served three presidents as an aide and advisor — Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, for whom he was a special assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force and a military consultant.

Jack Wheeler was a graduate student at the Harvard Business School when he was recruited to be an advisor to the president regarding military tactics. He was a man of integrity and served on the General Staff at the Pentagon.

Shortly after writing this article, he was mysteriously murdered sometime between Dec. 28th and 31st in 2010 and his body was dumped in a dumpster in Newark, Delaware.

Wheeler had homes in Washington, D.C. and New Castle, Del.

 Dr. Jack Wheeler.

Now here’s the story as written by Jack Wheeler that was suppressed by the media:

All of us need to raise our glasses the highest to the Navy SEALs who popped those three Somali pirates. And I’m sure you want to hear the real story of what happened especially because there is a revoltingly opportunistic and cowardly side to it.

Why, for example, did it take SEAL Team Six (aka DEVGRU, Navy Special Warfare Development Group) over 36 hours to get to the scene?

Because President Obama refused to authorize the SEAL deployment for those 36 hours, during which the OSC – the on scene commander, Cmdr. Frank Castellano of the USS Bainbridge – repeatedly requested them. Cmdr. Castellano is a very, very mature and experienced commanding officer and is rock solid in his decisions.

Once the SEALs arrived – parachuting from a C-17 into the ocean near the ship – Obama then imposed Rules of Engagement (ROE) specifying the SEALs could not do anything unless the life of the hostage, Captain Richard Phillips, was in “imminent” danger.

Thus, when Capt. Phillips attempted to escape by jumping off the lifeboat into the ocean, the SEAL snipers had all four pirates (one later surrendered) sighted in and could have taken them out then and there – but they could not fire due to Obama’s ROE restrictions.

When the SEALs approached the lifeboat in a RIB (rigid-hull inflatable boat) carrying supplies for Capt. Phillips and the pirates, the pirates fired upon them.

Not only was no fire returned due to Obama’s ROE, but as the pirates were shooting at the RIB, SEAL snipers on the Bainbridge had them all dialed in. Again, no triggers were pulled due to the ROE.

Two specific rescue plans were developed by Cmdr. Castellano and the SEAL teams. Obama personally refused to authorize them.

After the second refusal and days of dithering, Cmdr. Castellano decided he had the Operational Area and OSC authority to “solely determine risk to hostage” and did not require any further approval by the president. He took unilateral action on Sunday, April 12, 2009.

Four hours later, the White House is informed that three pirates are dead and Capt. Phillips has been rescued unharmed. Then a White House press release was immediately issued, giving credit to the president for his “daring and decisive” behavior that resulted in such success.

Obama has absolutely no military knowledge or experience whatsoever. He demanded decisional control over the entire hostage drama to the last detail. All actions required his personal approval.

He dithered like a coward while the world laughed at our warships flummoxed by four illiterate teenagers with worn-out AKs in a lifeboat.

Only when the Navy Commander decided to ignore his Pantywaist-in Chief and take action and responsibility himself, were the incredible skills of the SEALs put into play.

That Obama could cynically and opportunistically claim that his “bold” “calm” “tough” leadership was responsible should remind everyone that not a single action, not a single word of this man can be trusted. He is bereft of honesty and moral character. He is a complete Zero.

The HFR raises a glass full of pride and gratitude to Navy Commander Frank Castellano, the Navy SEALs for their incredible competence, and our military. Let’s hold a Tea Party in their honor.

What a low-life, lying, racist, Muslim, Marxist, Manchurian coward we have running our government. It is a disgrace to the office.

Commander Frank Castellano
