    emphysema


    DESCRIPTION

    Emphysema is a degenerative disease that usually develops after many years of exposure of lung tissues from cigarette smoke or other toxins that pollute the air. These toxins destroy the small air sacs in the lungs, called alveoli, that stretch as the person takes an in-breath, transporting oxygen from the air to the blood and then shrink as they force out carbon dioxide with an out-breath. As a result, the lungs lose the ability to dilate and the elasticity of the lung tissue. Exhaling becomes difficult as the damaged lungs trap air and cannot effectively exchange it with fresh air. This trapped, stale air remains trapped in the lungs, preventing the needed exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide found in fresh air. As the damage progresses, the effort needed to breathe increases and, ultimately, each breath becomes labored.

    Emphysema is a form of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) that can interfere with normal breathing. Other diseases that come under COPD include asthma and chronic bronchitis. According to the American Lung Association (ALA), nearly 16 million Americans are estimated to suffer from some form of COPD, and COPD is the fourth-ranking cause of death just behind heart ailments, cancers, and stroke.

    In people with emphysema, damage to the alveoli (small air sacs in the lungs) causes the lungs to lose their elasticity. As a result, exhaling becomes difficult, and stale air remains trapped in the lungs, preventing the needed exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide. A person with advanced emphysema may experience a near-constant state of breathlessness, chronic coughing and wheezing, and frequent discharge of sputum from the respiratory passages. Emphysema can also contribute to other health problems, such as lung infections and a condition called erythrocytosis, in which the blood contains abnormally high levels of red blood cells. Erythrocytosis can cause such symptoms as weakness, dizziness, fatigue, light-headedness, headache, and vision problems.

    Most people who are diagnosed with emphysema are long-term smokers. Symptoms may not occur until middle age, when the individual's ability to exercise or do heavy work begins to decline, and a productive cough begins. The symptoms may be subtle at first, but worsen with time.





    EMPHYSEMA FREQUENT SIGNS & SYMPTOMS

  • The predominant symptom of emphysema is shortness of breath or feeling of not being able to get enough air during any kind of physical exertion.

  • Breathlessness followed by coughing during exertion, no matter how slight. As the disease progresses, this symptom may be present all the time, even while sitting quietly.

  • Coughing, wheezing, and chronic mucus production are other common symptoms.

  • Symptoms may not occur until middle age, when the individual's ability to exercise or do heavy work begins to decline, and a productive cough begins.

  • The symptoms may be subtle at first, but worsen with time.





  • EMPHYSEMA CAUSES

  • The overwhelming majority of people who are diagnosed with emphysema are related to smoking. Regular smoking, whether tobacco or marijuana, causes chronic low-level inflammation of the lungs, which increases the chance of developing this progressive disease.

  • In the United states, an estimated 10 million adults were diagnosed with COPD in 2000, but data suggests that as many as 24 million people could be affected. COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, behind heart ailments, cancers and stroke. The COPD death rate for women grew much faster than the rate for men from 1980 to 2000. This increase suggests that smoking, which increased dramatically among women from about 1940 onward, is now taking its toll.

  • Exposure to air pollution and irritating fumes and dusts on the job are also thought to be contributing factors of emphysema. In third-world countries, poor air quality appears to be a major factor in the development and progression of the disease.

  • In rare cases, emphysema is caused by a genetic condition that leads to a deficiency of a blood protein called alpha-1-antitrypsin.





  • EMPHYSEMA MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS

    Diagnosis cannot be based on these symptoms alone. A careful history is taken with a focus on the number and duration of these symptoms, as well as smoking and occupational histories, is basic to diagnosing the disease.

    A thorough examination of the chest, observing breathing patterns, monitoring how hard the person is working to breathe along with noting the degree of over-inflation of the lungs and listening to the chest with a stethoscope to hear the airflow in and out of the lungs is necessary. Listening to heart sounds is done to determine its rate and rhythm and any signs of heart strain that may accompany advanced stages of emphysema is necessary. Routine lung function tests can determine several characteristics and capabilities of the lungs. The following tests identify various stages of emphysema:

  • Spirometry: Through a tube connected to a machine that records air flow and capacity, the person takes a deep breath and blows it out as quickly as possible. Measuring the amount of air that can be forced out in one second and the total amount of air that can be exhaled is the best way to determine the amount of airways obstruction. (On a personal note: This test will often send the person into a major coughing fit. I have had lung problems all my life and I really hate this test. It leaves me coughing and gasping for my next breath and grabbing for my inhaler medication!... MoonDragon Midwife)

  • Pulse Oximetry: A special light, clipped onto the finger or earlobe, can indirectly measure the amount of oxygen in the blood.

  • X-rays: X-rays are not often helpful in early-stage diagnosis of emphysema, but in moderate to severe cases, a reasonably accurate diagnosis can be made with the plain chest x-ray and computerized axial tomography (CAT) scanning. Some of the more common appearances on the chest x-ray include flattened diaphragms, loss of blood vessel markings, and the appearance of a reduced size of the heart.

  • These and other test results are then compared to values considered healthy for various age groups, heights, weights, genders, and races.





    EMPHYSEMA CONVENTIONAL MEDICAL TREATMENT

    There is known cure for emphysema, but the measures outlined below should slow the progression of the disease, help ease discomfort, and make breathing a bit easier.

    There are a number of medical mainstream treatments that can help people with emphysema, but the most important step is to stop smoking. Stopping smoking when the airflow obstruction is mild or moderate slows the development of disabling shortness of birth. However, stopping smoking at any point in the disease process provides some benefit. People with emphysema should also try to avoid exposure to other airborne irritants.

  • BRONCHODILATOR MEDICATIONS: This class of medication works by relaxing the muscles around the airways. They are typically indicated for relief of bronchospasm in people with reversible obstructive airways disease. More commonly used to treat asthma, they may be prescribed for emphysema if there is a tendency toward airway constriction or tightening. Some of the more common bronchodilator medicines include: albuterol, terbutaline, ipratopium bromide, and theophylline. Inhaled medicines, which go directly into the lungs and have less exposure to other parts of the body, are often tried first because they usually begin working in less than 5 minutes with a lower incidence of side effects.

  • Blood tests are used to monitor medications such as theophylline. Although tests for measuring theophylline have been available for decades, there continues to be refinements in this type of testing which make them more accurate and accessible.

  • ANTI-INFLAMMATORY MEDICATIONS (CORTICOSTEROIDS) Since emphysema may be associated with inflammation, a corticosteriod may be used to soothe and ultimately heal the delicate lining layer of the air passageways, making them more resistant to obstruction. Inhaled steroids do not carry an FDA-approved indication for COPD but are used off-label by many health care providers. The type of steroid contained in these preparations is not the type that builds muscles. Long-term use of oral corticosteroids is commonly associated with a variety of dose-dependent side effects, such as osteoporosis (in both men and women), weight gain and fat redistribution, hypertension, loss of lean body mass, and high blood sugar. Commonly used corticosteroids include the oral preparation prednisone and several inhaled corticosteroids.

  • OXYGEN THERAPY: Supplemental oxygen can benefit anyone with impaired lung function. Long-term oxygen therapy combats erythrocytosis and lowers the risk of heart failure. Oxygen therapy benefits the person whose lung function is severely impaired and cannot absorb enough oxygen from the air. Long-term oxygen therapy prolongs life in people who have low blood oxygen levels (hypoxemia). This therapy reduces the excess red blood cells, which helps improve mental functioning and heart failure concerns. It may also improve shortness of breath during exercise.

  • LUNG REDUCTION SURGERY: Lung reduction surgery can be very effective in enhancing breathing function. Emphysema sufferers may find relief from their symptoms with this surgical procedure. It often eliminates the need for oxygen and significantly enhances breathing function. This procedure involves making cuts in the damaged portions of the lungs and using a special stapling device that gives the healthy lung tissue more room to expand. It is considered a minimally invasive procedure technique requiring two or three small incisions made in the chest and a tiny camera inserted through one of the incisions to view the lung. Through another incision, a special stapling device is inserted to cut portions of the lung so that the healthy lung tissue has more room to expand. Prospective candidates need to undergo careful testing prior to consideration of this surgery.

  • In a similar procedure, surgeons section off the damaged lung tissue and buttress the folds using bovine pericardium (cow muscle) to enhance the viability of the tissue. Candidates for this type of surgery are carefully screened before being considered for treatment.

  • LUNG TRANSPLANT SURGERY: In some cases, a lung transplant may be considered. It is a viable option for only a small proportion of people with emphysema. A lung transplant is a highly invasive, complex procedure that carries substantial risk. Because of known complications of any organ transplant surgery (not to mention the great financial cost), this option is only viable in a very small, select group of individuals.

  • Exercise programs can be carried out to improve a person's independence and quality of life, and decrease the frequency and length of hospital stays, even though lung function doesn't improve. Gains achieved by exercise is in conditioning, which are quickly lost if a person stops exercising.

    For the future, the key to managing emphysema is to identify the disease as early as possible. Methods continue to be developed to health care providers find the earliest signs so that preventive and therapeutic measures can be instituted.

    At this time, with current treatments, even those who are severely afflicted with emphysema and are homebound can be made more comfortable and can experience a higher quality of life.

    A1AD TREATMENT

    There is a rare inherited form of the disease called alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency (A1AD) related emphysema. People with A1AD lack a protective protein called alpha-1-antitrypsin (AAT), or alpha 1-proteinase inhibitor. Without AAT, a natural enzyme called neutrophil elastase that initially fights bacteria and cleans up dead lung tissue can run rampant and eventually damage lung tissue.

    For people with A1AD, the missing or defective protein, alpha 1, can be replaced or augmented. In December 1987, FDA approved the first specific treatment for A1AD-related emphysema, called Prolastin, which raises the level of AAT in the blood and may protect the lung tissue from the destructive enzyme. The replacement therapy is derived from human plasma that has been screened and tested for viruses, and it is usually taken in weekly intravenous infusions.


    Some of this information was obtained, in part, from The Food and Drug Administration. FDA Consumer Magazine: Every Breath You Take: Preventing and Treating Emphysema, March-April 1999. (Online) www.fda.gov/fdac/features/1999/299_emph.html

    TREATMENT CONSIDERATIONS

  • The Air Supply personal air purifier from Wein Products is a miniature unit that is worn around the neck. It sets up an invisible pure air shield against microorganisms (such as viruses, bacteria, and mold) and microparticles (including dust, pollen, and pollutants). It also eliminates vapors, smells, and harmful volatile compounds in the air. Other brands of air purifiers are available for home and office use:
  • The University of Pennsylvania Hospital Department of Allergy reports that having an air conditioner and an electrostatic air cleaning machine in the bedroom of persons with respiratory disease is a major factor in the health of individuals with breathing problems.

  • A routine lung function test can determine lung capacity and other characteristics that can help identify various stages of emphysema. Several kinds of test are available:
    • Arterial Blood Gas (ABG): An ABG is a blood test that measures amounts of carbon dioxide and oxygen in the blood. This test is used to assess more advanced stages of emphysema.

    • Pulse Oximeter: This test measures the amount of oxygen in the blood using a special light that is clipped onto a finger or earlobe.

    • Spirometry: In this test you take a deep breath and blow it out as quickly as possible through a tube that is connected to a machine that records airflow and capacity.

    • X-ray: A plain x-ray and computerized axial tomography (CAT scan) can help diagnose moderate to severe cases of emphysema.





    HERBAL RECOMMENDATIONS

  • ClearLungs from RidgeCrest Herbals is an herbal combination that helps provide relief from shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, and wheezing due to bronchial congestion. It is available in two formulas, with ephedra and without. Both have been found to be equally effective.

  • Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus), a Chinese herb also known as huang qi, accelerates healing in the bronchial tubes and promotes better breathing. Astragalus root is considered to have a normalizing effect on the body and is commonly included in Chinese cuisine. Practitioners of TCM consider Astragalus root a true tonic that can strengthen debilitated patients and release resistance to disease in general. Astragalus root is used to stimulate the immune system and improve adrenal glalnd function and digestion. Astragalus Immunity Herbal Tea helps maintain normal functions of the liver, lung, kidney, stomach and heart, to boost energy, defer aging, detoxify, etc. To bolster white blood cells growth, support the immune systems, and to promote the effect of other herbs, and help reduce side effect of chemotherapy and radiation.

Thyme Leaf has been used extensively for the high thymol, phenol, and carvacol content in Thyme oil. Thyme leaf is also a popular culinary herb. Thyme is used to clear respiratory congestion, whooping cough, laryngitis, catarrh, and sore throat. This herb also can be used to treat stomach cramps, diarrhea, heartburn, chronic gastritis, flatulence, colic, and diminished appetite.

  • Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) is a member of the legume family and its major constituent, glycyrrhizin, is 50 times sweeter than sucrose. Licorice extract increases energy levels and helps to improve organ function. Use an alcohol-free extract. Caution: If overused, licorice can elevate blood pressure. Do not use this herb on a daily basis for more than 7 days in a row. Avoid it completely if you have high blood pressure. Licorice has a long history of use and is one of the most widely known medicinal herbs today. It has been extensively researched for its ability to support healthy digestive function. De-Glycyrrhizinated Licorice is a milder form of Licorice necessary for a chewable lozenge. Licorice is famous for its delicious distinctive flavor, licorice is essential in innumerable candy, confection and beverage recipes and makes an estimable liqueur. Licorice Extract Tincture supplements estrogen and adrenal hormones, soothes mucous membranes, is an expectorant, a laxative, aids the respiratory tract and helps soothe sore throats. Licorice root is taken orally (DGL form) for ulcers, heartburn (esophageal reflux), and mouth sores.

  • Cordyceps, also known as Dong Chong Xia Cao, may slow the progress of lung degeneration. Chinese medicine teaches that there is a synergistic connection between the kidneys and the lungs. Cordyceps reinforces this connection, opens up the bronchioles, and better oxygenates the blood to the kidneys. Clinically, Cordyceps is used to build and support immune function in various immune compromised conditions including chronic fatigue, cancer, and respiratory conditions.

  • Other beneficial herbs for emphysema include Alfalfa, Fenugreek, fresh Horseradish, Mullein, and Rosemary teas.

  • DIETARY & NUTRITIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Older adults are at risk for magnesium deficiency, which can further compromise the ability to breathe. Taking Magnesium supplements (500 to 1,000 mg daily) can significantly strengthen the muscles that power breathing and promote better oxygenation of the body cells.

  • Go on a cleansing fast periodically, using Carrot, Celery, Spinach, Kale, and all Dark Green fresh juices. See Fasting for more information.

  • Eat a diet consisting of 50-percent raw foods. The other 50-percent should consist of soups, skinless chicken or turkey, brown rice, millet, and whole grain cereals.

  • Upon arising, take 1 teaspoon of pure, cold-pressed Olive Oil mixed in Apple juice. This will supply essential fatty acids while aiding in the elimination of toxic waste in the gallbladder and large intestine.

  • Consume Onions and Garlic daily.

  • Amino Acid Complex contains a balanced blend of 20 essential and non-essential amino acids in a chewable format. Amino acids are the building blocks of Protein.

  • Copper influences protein metabolism and general healing, improves vitamin c oxidation and is integral in the formation of RNA.

  • CoQ10 is a coenzyme for several key steps in the production of energy within each cell, and an antioxidant important in its clinical effects. It is these two properties make CoQ10 one of the best supplements available today. CoQ10 is vital for cellular energy production and is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger.

  • Stabilized Oxygen OxyDrops is stabilized oxygen and is considered to be the highest quality, strongest and most stable of all the liquid electrolytes of oxygen available on the market.

  • Vitamin B-Complex consisting of 8 essential vitamins. B Vitamins are precursors of coenzymes involved in the conversion of cellular energy, manufacture of hormones and proteins, and repair and maintenance of nerve structures.

  • Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids and Rosehips provides antioxidant protection for many of the body's important enzyme systems. Rosehips offers a rich whole plant source of vitamin C.

  • Zinc moves through all the fluids in the body, it creates a defense against infection-causing bacteria and viruses trying to enter the body and stops bacterial and viral replication.

  • Avoid fried and greasy foods, salt, and all foods that cause excess mucus to be formed in the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, sinuses, and nasal cavity. Foods that lead to the formation of mucus include meats, eggs, all dairy products and cheese, processed foods, tobacco, junk foods, and while flour products. Read labels carefully; these are sometimes "hidden" ingredients in food products.

  • Avoid gas-forming foods such as legumes and cabbage. These foods cause abdominal distension that can interfere with breathing. Try using a product called Beano, available in local supermarkets, when you do eat foods that can cause gas. Place a few drops of the liquid on the first bite of food for best results.

  • Avoid foods that require a great deal of chewing, such as meats and nuts. Chronic lung disease can make it difficult to breathe while chewing. If necessary, vegetables can be steamed to make them easier to eat.

  • Do not eat a typical American breakfast. Instead, sip hot, clear liquids (such as herbal teas) in the morning to help clear the mucus from the airways. Drink 8 glasses of quality water daily. Using a Psyllium fiber product or Aerobic Bulk Cleanse (ABC) from Aerobic Life Industries (a colon cleanser available in health food stores) is helpful after consuming the liquids. Mix ABC with a glass of juice and drink it quickly. This will help rid the colon of excess mucus and reduce gas and distension.

  • LIFE STYLE RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Avoid any and all contact with tobacco. Tobacco smoke is the single most dangerous thing anyone suffering from emphysema can encounter. If you have emphysema and smoke, you must quit. Avoid areas where people smoke and do not allow smoking in your home, your care, or anywhere near you.

  • Get regular exercise. Daily exercise, especially walking, can be extremely beneficial for people with emphysema. It increases endurance, improves circulation, and generally leads to a reduced level of breathlessness. Start out with what you are able to do, even if it is only a minute or two of exercise every hour, then gradually increase the amount as you are able. Any exercise program should be started at a very low intensity and be gradually increased over time. Yoga or martial arts exercise, such as Tai Chi, may also be helpful.

  • Avoid hot, humid climates. If you must live in such a climate, continuous central air conditioning is essential. An air-conditioned car is also essential. Do not allow anyone to smoke or wear perfume in your car. Humidify your home, especially if you experience a lot of congestion or have heavy discharges of sputum.

  • Use warm Castor Oil packs on the chest and back to help reduce mucus and enhance breathing. To make a castor oil pack, place a cup or so of castor oil in a pan and warm but do not boil it. Dip a piece of cheesecloth or other white cotton material into the oil until the cloth is saturated. Apply the cloth to the affected area and cover it with a piece of plastic that is larger in size than the cotton cloth, then place a warm cloth or a hot water bottle on top. Keep the pack in place for 1/2 to 2 hours, as needed.

  • Rest and avoid stress. Consider meditation and other stress reduction therapies. Get plenty of fresh air.

  • Do daily breathing exercises, which can improve lung function. A technique known as deep breathing, involves inhaling, through the nose while pulling the abdominal muscles inward in order to allow more air to be inhaled. Exhaling takes place steadily and slowly through the mouth while the tongue is pressed between the roof of the mouth and top of the teeth, so that slight pressure is felt through the windpipe and chest. A hissing sound is produced as the air is expelled through the lips. Exhaling should take at least twice as long as inhaling, so that all air is forced out. Do this for 10 minutes, 2 or 3 times daily. This will aid in an exchange of air in the lungs and improve breathing capacity.

  • Leave the house during major house cleaning and other major household projects, and remain away for at least 2 hours afterward. House cleaning stirs up dust and mold.

  • Because every extra chemical adds potential risk to the lungs, use only essential (and unscented) laundry products. Avoid perfume and anything containing fragrance. Avoid gas stoves as well; electric stoves are far better for people with respiratory disorders. Choose flooring made from hardwood, ceramic tile, or stone rather than carpeting, which holds dust, mold, and many chemicals that get into the air and that can irritate the lungs. Avoid using window curtain and draperies, which also can harbor dust. Decorate with paint (new odorless formulas are now available) rather than wallpaper; the glues used to make the paper adhere to the wall can have volatile chemicals that may bother some people. Avoid plastic chairs, plastic dishes, and other plastic items in furnishing your home. Do not use aerosol products.

  • Avoid air pollution. If your current working environment is dirty, dusty, or toxic to inhale, change jobs.

  • Avoid letting furry or feathered animals into your home or car, as their hair and dander can irritate the lungs.
