Title: Spring and allegies Descriptive info: Spring and allegies.. Along with spring comes, and allergies.. Many people are predisposed to develop at least once in their lives had an allergic reaction.. But what is an allergic reaction?.. The human immune system has defense mechanisms against many different substances found in the air we breathe, the foods we eat as well as objects with which we come into contact.. All these substances can potentially cause an allergic reaction to allergens call, main of which are: the flower pollen, animal dander, household dust, food, medicines.. Also severe allergies can cause insect bites (wasp, etc.. Blood circulating antibodies purpose is to isolate and destroy any foreign substance that may harm us.. Those antibodies involved in the mechanisms of allergy called immunoglobulin E (immunoglobulineE briefly or IgE).. In people with allergic predisposition percentage of such antibodies is increased.. Each type of IgE specific to a particular allergen (eg for dust).. This explains why some are sensitive to an allergenic substance and several others (most guys IgE).. So when the body comes into contact first with any of these agents launched a series of reactions.. Initially we produce specific antibodies E.. Then they deposited on the surface of special cells called mast cells.. These cells are abundant in the nose, eyes, skin, lungs and gastrointestinal tract, containing chemicals (eg histamine) known as "intermediaries".. The next time the allergenic substance will come into contact with the body, 'arrested' by the R-sensitive antibodies that in turn cause the secretion of mediators.. The mediators responsible for the symptoms of allergic reaction:.. *.. itching.. edema.. mucus hypersecretion.. rash.. hyperaemia.. cough.. Shape ALLERGIKIS REACTION.. MAIN allergic diseases.. In sch.. 4 showing the principal organs of the human body influenced by mediators of inflammation and the symptoms caused.. sch.. 4.. Allergic rhinitis.. And used an inappropriate term "hay fever".. The main symptom is nasal congestion, and therefore difficulty in nasal breathing, runny nose, sneezing.. A high percentage of ... reaction.. But there are cases with atypical symptoms such proof the existence of allergic predisposition is important in treatment.. Listed below the main diagnostic methods:.. Allergic skin TEST (PRICKTESTS).. The most commonly used method.. It is scarification (usually through the surface of the forearm) and then injected a drop of each allergen substance.. The existence of reaction (inflammation-swelling-itching) proves the existence of allergic predisposition in this matter.. BLOOD (RAST) TEST.. Blood test more costly, with no immediate results as previously mentioned.. It is used mainly in cases where it is impossible to carry out skin tests (eg cases of patients taking certain medicines, etc.. 3.. MEASUREMENT OF TOTAL IgE.. Which is increased in people with allergic predisposition.. PREVENTION AND TREATMENT.. Prevention consists primarily in avoiding (if possible) of the allergen and if 'factor as it is known (eg allergy to cat hair).. Also, removal from work or home is substantial proof that a cause of frequent and severe allergic crisis.. Some are fixed annually in the spring symptoms of allergic rhinitis or bronchial asthma (seasonal allergic rhinitis seasonal allergic asthma).. In such cases we must start the appropriate treatment about a month before the start of spring.. This will prevent the outbreak or would minimize the possible symptoms.. If an allergic symptom should contact the specialist (ENT, pulmonologist, allergist) as the system of the body is infected.. Treatment depends mainly on the severity of symptoms.. First-line drugs against allergies are antihistamines and cortisone, which can be administered systematically (pill, injection) or local (eg ointments, nasal drops or ocular application, sprays for inhalation, etc.. ).. In addition to decongestants (eg in nasal congestion).. Another class of drugs are antilefkotrienia used in bronchial asthma.. In severe allergic-type reactions, the drug should be administered directly by the adrenaline.. Finally, immunotherapy, which consists of regular injections, which can make the immune system more tolerant to different allergens.. The nature of this treatment lasts 3-5 years..

Title: Ambient air pollution and health effects Descriptive info: Ambient air pollution and health effects.. Increasingly in recent years talk about environmental pollution, although often not well understood what environmental pollution, that is caused if there are ways to deal with and what the impact on our health.. Environmental pollution is directly intertwined with the evolution of technology and science, progress which in addition to considerable benefits to mankind it also has adverse effects on the environment and consequently on human health (the price changes).. The problem is taking alarming proportions especially in large urban centers.. Indicative only say that 60,000 deaths every year in cities of Europe and 3,000,000 in the world due to prolonged exposure to air pollutants (from the report of the European Agency for the Environment).. The influence of the environment on health has been known since ancient times.. Father of Medicine Hippocrates mentioned science in his work "on the gas-water sites" that regulates the climate on human health.. It is also known that during the investigation of diseases very important role played by taking the patient's work history, as many diseases are directly related to the environment.. After a whole group of diseases called "professional diseases".. Examples are the 'pneumoconiosis "of miners, asbestosis (benign and malignant form is solely due to asbestos), et al.. Also a number of diseases caused by environmental conditions such as endemic goiter (swelling of the thyroid gland) in some areas where iodine deficiency, tuberculosis directly related to unhealthy living conditions, etc.. But what we mean by saying environmental pollution;.. Any environmental condition that has adverse effects on human health.. May depend on three factors:.. pollution sources (type and quantity of pollutants).. weather conditions and.. the topography of the area.. The interaction of these factors may favor the concentration of pollutants or removal.. What are the sources?.. These sources belong to two categories and are.. (a) man, namely those due to human activity (cars, heating, industry, pesticides, sprays, etc.. (b) natural, ie those due to natural drastirotita (volcanoes, electric shocks, etc.. What are pollutants?.. Any substance that can act harmful to human body or even cause death.. Depending ... Another important category of pollutants are suspended particles.. These are solid particles or liquid phase, to be airborne.. Such particles are dust, smoke, various metals, etc.. can be distinguished according diameter.. An important role for particles having a diameter up to 10 mm (mikrochiliosta) (PM-10) and in particular particles with very small diameter (PM-2, 5), because their size allows entering the respiratory system, causing serious.. respiratory problems.. Sources of these particles are industry, automotive, agricultural, wood burning, as well as the various dispensers.. What are the health effects?.. Health effects are many and serious.. The main system affected the human body is the respiratory and cardiovascular.. Most vulnerable are the very old people, and particularly those suffering from lung and heart disease.. It also presents a particular impact on children's ages for two reasons (a) children have an increased metabolic activity and (b) nervous, respiratory and reproductive systems of children are not fully developed.. More specifically and according to the European Commission's Environment and Health in Europe.. § one in seven children suffers from asthma.. § Asthma affects more children in Western Europe compared with those of Eastern Europe (ten-fold effect).. § Asthma - allergies and other respiratory diseases is increasing and is one of the main causes of hospitalization.. Also, several environmental pollutants are often responsible for miscarriage, birth defects, physical and mental disabilities and disorders of the reproductive capacity of humans.. We should not forget the effects of passive smoking which can cause respiratory problems and increased risk of lung cancer in non smokers by 20-30%.. Finally we should mention another important cause of air pollution, noise, which can cause hearing deficiency.. An estimated 10,000,000 people in Europe are exposed to high noise levels.. The European Union is sensitive to the risks to our health because of pollution, has announced the main strategic objectives which are: improving the legislation on air quality, the setting of maximum risk for various pollutants and.. monitoring them, a gradual significant reduction of pollutants in order to minimize the next few years, the morbidity and mortality effects of air pollution..
