Acute laryngitis. Features of the clinic and treatment tactics for sub-laryngitis

Acute catarrhal laryngitis

It is most often observed in acute catarrh of the upper respiratory tract. The main role in the etiology of this disease is played by local, and partly general hypothermia of the body. A predisposing point is often mechanical irritation, for example, overstrain of the voice, sometimes the abuse of smoking and alcohol.

Clinic: the main symptoms at the onset of the disease are soreness, scratching, tickling, sore, burning, dry throat. Soon, and sometimes simultaneously hoarseness or aphonia develops, a cough appears, accompanied by a feeling of dryness, soreness in the throat. Sparse, difficult to expectorate sputum, gradually becomes more plentiful and easily expectorated, which significantly improves the well-being of patients. Body temperature is usually normal, less often subfebrile. When laryngoscopy is detected hyperemia, and sometimes swelling of the mucous membrane of the larynx, especially in the area of ​​the true vocal folds. When phonation is often not observed complete closure of the vocal folds due to weakness

vocal muscles.

Treatment consists in eliminating the harmful moments associated with the onset of the disease. The patient is recommended to observe the vocal mode, inhalation of penicillin aerosols (200,000 units in a 2% solution of ephedrine), then alkaline inhalation (2% solution of drinking soda with the addition of 2-3 drops of menthol oil) 2-3 times a day. Prescribing soothing semi-alcohol compresses on the neck, mustard plasters on the chest and back, UHF on the larynx area, infusion of indifferent vegetable oils (peach, apricot, olive, etc.) into the larynx.

Sublumbar laryngitis

Subclavicular laryngitis, or false croup, is characterized by the predominant localization of the inflammatory process in the subclavian space, the onset of laryngospasms and swelling of the mucous membrane and loose submucous tissue in the lining of the larynx, especially in children 6-7 years old, in which the false croup is mainly found.
As a rule, children with exudative diathesis are susceptible to the disease. It is often combined with allergic rhinitis, bronchial asthma and other allergic manifestations.

Clinic: anxiety attacks in a child waking up at night. Shortness of breath, cyanosis of the lips, barking cough. If breathing is difficult, jugular fossa is involved. Epigastric region and intercostal spaces. The attack usually lasts several minutes, sometimes up to half an hour. The child's condition is satisfactory, body temperature is normal. When laryngoscopy under unchanged true vocal folds visible red ridges formed by hyperemic and edematous mucosa.

Treatment. Bed rest, fresh and moist air in the room, distracting therapy in the form of mustard plasters or cans on the chest and back, hot foot baths. Drink plenty of hot milk, mineral water. To suppress laryngospasm, it is advisable to induce a vomiting reflex (touching the back wall of the pharynx with a spatula). Prescribe antibiotics, calcium gluconate, hyposensitizing agents. In case of allergic stenosis of the larynx, intramuscularly a solution of prednisone. With threatening symptoms, in the stage of decompensation, a tracheostomy is indicated.

Acute laryngitis. Features of the clinic and treatment tactics for sub-laryngitis

  1. Furuncle of the nose, features of the clinic, therapeutic tactics
    The nasal boil is most often the result of scratching in the nose with infection in the sebaceous and hair sacs located on the threshold of the nose; less commonly, one of the manifestations of general furunculosis. Clinic. Hyperemia of the skin, tension and soreness of the tissues appear on the tip or on the wings of the nose. Inflammatory phenomena in the form of redness and swelling often capture the neighboring parts of the face. At
  2. Acute stenosis of the larynx: causes, therapeutic tactics
    Causes of acute stenosis: • inflammatory processes of the larynx (lining of the laryngitis, laryngeal tonsillitis), • suppurative processes of the larynx (abscess, phlegmon, chondro-perichondritis), • swelling of the mucous membrane of the larynx of an allergic nature, • foreign body of the larynx, • true croup (with diphtheria) , other infectious diseases (measles, scarlet fever, flu), •
  3. Sublumbar laryngitis (false croup)
    False croup (laryngitis subchordalis) is a type of acute catarrhal laryngitis that develops in the sub-vocal cavity; “False” is called because there are no true (fibrinous or other) films, but there is only edema under the vocal folds. It is observed in children usually aged 2 to 5 years, which is caused by the peculiarities of the anatomical structure of the children's larynx - the narrowness of its lumen and
  4. Treatment tactics for shock conditions
    Shock is characterized by a decrease in cardiac output, an inadequate distribution of blood flow, or a combination of these disorders. Reduced oxygen delivery causes a violation of cellular metabolism, energy balance. Emergency care Therapeutic tactics at the prehospital stage: 1) ensuring airway patency: easy throwing the head back; abnormal mucus removal
  5. Therapeutic tactics for wounds
    A wound is a violation of the integrity of skin, mucous tissues or serous membranes with damage to various tissues and organs caused by mechanical stress. Wounds are gunshot, chopped, stabbed, scalped, crushed. Wounds can be single, multiple and combined with other lesions (chemical, radioactive, bacteriological). Any injury is accompanied
  6. Therapeutic tactics for thermal lesions
    Thermal damage occurs as a result of exposure to thermal energy (burns) or low temperature (frostbite). Burns (burn disease) - tissue damage resulting from local thermal, chemical, electrical or radiation exposure. In depth, 4 degrees of damage are distinguished. I degree - erythema, swelling and pain of reddened skin is noted. Phenomena pass through 3-5
  7. Therapeutic tactics for frostbite
    Cold lesions (frostbite) are tissue damage caused by exposure to low temperatures. 4 degrees are also distinguished by depth and severity. I degree - characterized by edema, flushing of the skin with a bluish tint. Cold feeling, chills. II degree - skin color crimson-cyanotic, tissue edema, the appearance of vesicles with serous or serous-hemorrhagic contents. Appear
  8. Therapeutic tactics for bleeding
    There are traumatic bleeding caused by mechanical damage to blood vessels (rupture, incision, shock, compression, crushing), and due to the pathological condition of blood vessels or surrounding tissues (arrosion, stratification of the wall, blood disease). Bleeding can be external and internal. With external blood, it enters the external environment, and with internal blood it enters the internal cavity of the body.
  9. Therapeutic tactics for radiation injuries
    Radiation injuries occur during accidents, explosions with the occurrence of radiation (ionizing) radiation. Ionizing radiation has various penetrating and damaging properties. Damage to a person by penetrating radiation can lead to radiation sickness (see below). More often combined lesions occur. Combination of mechanical trauma, thermal burns and radiation sickness
  10. Therapeutic tactics for electric shock
    In case of electric shock, local and general disturbances can occur. Local varies from minor pain points to specific burns (up to grade IV). Common disorders are a violation of the central nervous system, respiratory and circulatory organs. Possible shock, cardiac arrest and breathing. Emergency care In case of clinical death, resuscitation is carried out
  11. Therapeutic tactics for compression syndrome
    Syndrome of prolonged compression, or traumatic toxicosis is a pathological condition that develops as a result of prolonged (4-8 or more hours) crushing or compression of the soft tissues of the limbs (usually lower). In the early period, up to 3 days, the symptoms of traumatic shock prevail, in the intermediate period - the phenomena of acute renal failure, in the late (8-12 days) - a decrease in the total
  12. Therapeutic tactics for various injuries, diseases, poisonings
    Emergency care for anaphylactic shock Anaphylactic shock is an immediate reaction of the body to contact with an allergen. The paramedic at the prehospital stage: 1) stops access to the allergen (if this occurs); 2) puts the patient in order to exclude retraction of the tongue and aspiration of vomit; 3) imposes a tourniquet above the site of an insect bite or introduces a drug; 4) introduces
  13. Therapeutic tactics in the main conditions that threaten the patient's life
    In a critical situation, the paramedic must have the basic techniques of resuscitation. Absolute indications for resuscitation: 1) cardiac and respiratory arrest; 2) gross circulatory disorders; 3) asphyxiation. Pulmonary cardiopulmonary resuscitation may become a necessary treatment for acute poisoning, coma, convulsive syndrome, sepsis, trauma, and foreign aspiration
  14. Therapeutic tactics in emergency situations with exposure to chemical poisonous substances (AHOV)
    Currently, tens of thousands of various chemicals are used in industry and agriculture. Some of them are toxic and harmful. Any emergency situations - leakage, pipeline breakdown, tank destruction, fire, explosion - can lead to the release of a large amount of chemical poisonous substances into the atmosphere and the earth. According to the degree of toxicity, these substances are divided into
    Konev A.V., Smolin A.V., Khaliyarova D.D., Solovey T.G., Nikolaeva S.N., Shamanskaya Yu.E. Federal State Institution Main Military Clinical Hospital named after N.N. Burdenko, Moscow Research Objective: To assess the possibility of using clinical predictors of response to therapy with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) for the choice of therapeutic tactics in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Material and methods: In
  16. pathogenesis and clinical complications of typhoid fever. Doctor tactics for intestinal profuse bleeding
    The pathogenesis of complications: see above. The most dangerous complications of typhoid paratyphoid diseases: a) perforation of intestinal ulcers - usually occurs at the 3rd week of the disease, it is promoted by flatulence, violation of bed rest by patients, as well as the presence of a pronounced deficit of body weight. Most often, perforation develops in the terminal ileum (the last 20-30 cm).
