LECTURE No. 17. Bronchial obstructive syndrome. Clinic, diagnosis, treatment. Respiratory failure. Clinic, diagnosis, treatment

Bronchial obstructive syndrome is a clinical symptom complex observed in patients with generalized obstruction of bronchial patency, its leading manifestation is expiratory dyspnea, asthma attacks. Diseases accompanied by airway obstruction.

The main causes of airway obstruction in children.

1. Obstruction of the upper respiratory tract:

1) acquired:

a) allergic rhinitis;

b) nasal polyps;

c) tonsil hypertrophy;

d) inflammation of the epiglottis;

e) viral laryngotracheitis;

e) laryngospasm (with spasmophilia);

g) a foreign body;

h) congenital stridor;

i) retraction of the tongue in an unconscious state;

j) mechanical compression of the trachea and bronchi;

2) congenital:

a) thymomegaly;

b) an increase in lymph nodes;

c) a tumor.

2. Obstruction of the large intrathoracic airways:

1) narrowing of the lumen (developmental anomaly, tumor, scar, foreign body);

2) compression from the outside (tumor, abnormal vessel);

3) excessive decline due to the weakness of the cartilage rings and (or) the membranous part (tracheomalacia).

III. Obstruction of the lower respiratory tract:

1) viral bronchiolitis;

2) bronchial asthma;

3) aspiration of vomit;

4) foreign bodies;

5) cystic fibrosis;

6) a1-antitrypsin deficiency.

The mechanisms of disorders in obstructive syndrome.


1) inflammatory edema and mucosal infiltration and submucosal edema;

2) violation of mucociliary transport, obstruction of the lumen of the bronchi with a viscous secret;

3) bronchospasm.

2. Irreversible:

1) fibroplastic changes in the walls of the bronchi.

2) stenosis, deformation and obliteration of the lumen of the bronchi.

3) expiratory collapse of the bronchi, the presence of emphysema.

Protective mechanisms of the respiratory apparatus.

1. Mechanical.

2. Biochemical.

3. Immunological.

Mechanical protective system of the breathing apparatus:

1) aerodynamic mechanism;

2) mucociliary escalator mechanism;

3) kinetic energy of exhaled air;

4) cough push, biochemical protective system of the respiratory apparatus;

5) the bronchial secretion of the respiratory apparatus (sialomucins, fucomucins, glucosaminoglycans, etc.);

6) phospholipids of the cell membranes of the bronchi, alveoli, surfactant;

7) BAS (serotonin, histamine, etc.).

Immunological protective system of the respiratory apparatus.

1. Specific:

1) secretory IgA;

2) plasma IgM, G, E.

2. Non-specific:

1) alveolar macrophages;

2) lysozyme;

3) kallikrein;

4) lactoferrin;

5) interferon;

6) b-lysine.

LECTURE No. 17. Bronchial obstructive syndrome. Clinic, diagnosis, treatment. Respiratory failure. Clinic, diagnosis, treatment

  1. LECTURE No. 8. Renal failure. Clinic, diagnosis, treatment
    The main functions of the kidneys are the excretion of metabolic products, maintaining the constancy of the water-electrolyte composition and the acid-base state, carried out by the renal blood flow, glomerular filtration and tubules (reabsorption, secretion, concentration ability). Renal failure - this syndrome develops in severe disorders of the renal processes, leading to a disorder
  2. LECTURE No. 12. Malabsorption syndrome in children. Clinic, diagnosis, treatment
    Enteropathy is a pathological condition that leads to a deficiency or impaired function of certain intestinal enzymes, due to the absence, deficiency or violation of the structure of various intestinal enzymes that provide digestive processes. Carbohydrate absorption: food carbohydrates consist of disaccharides: 1) sucrose (regular sugar = fructose + glucose), lactose (milk sugar =
  3. LECTURE No. 5. Chronic heart failure in children. Clinic, diagnosis, treatment
    Heart failure is a condition in which the heart, despite a sufficient flow of blood, does not provide the body with a need for blood supply.

    Severe acute and chronic liver diseases due to severe dystrophy and death of hepatocytes, despite the significant compensatory capabilities of this organ, are accompanied by deep violations of its numerous and extremely important functions for the body, which clinicians designate as liver failure syndrome. Depending on the nature and severity of the disease, affecting
  6. LECTURE No. 3. Cardiomyopathies in children. Clinic, diagnosis, treatment

  7. LECTURE No. 4. Diseases of the pericardium in children. Clinic, diagnosis, treatment
    Clinical and morphological classification of pericardial lesions (A. A. Gerke, Z. M. Volynsky, E. E. Gogin). 1. Pericardial malformations (anomalies): 1) complete defects; 2) partial defects; 3) defects in the lining of the pericardium (diverticula and cysts). 2. Pericarditis: 1) acute (dry fibrinous, exudative); 2) chronic (duration - 3 months); 3) adhesive (asymptomatic, compressive, with

    Systemic vasculitis is a heterogeneous group of diseases with primary inflammatory and necrotic changes in the vascular wall. Etiology of systemic vasculitis: viruses (cytomegaloviruses, hepatitis virus), bacteria (streptococci, staphylococci, salmonella), parasitic diseases (roundworms, filariotosis). Classification of vasculitis. 1. Primary vasculitis with the formation of granulomas

    Rheumatism is a systemic inflammatory disease of the connective tissue with characteristic heart damage. Etiology, pathogenesis. The main etiological factor in acute forms of the disease is b-hemolytic group A streptococcus.

    To differentiate each of the purulent forms of the process is practically impossible and inexpedient, since their treatment is fundamentally the same. This is due to the variety of damaging agents and factors, the initial characteristics of the body, with a change in the biological properties of pathogens and the emergence of new methods of exposure (antibiotics, chemotherapeutic drugs, etc.). However, it is always based on
