Author(s): Dr. Ramesh Dharavath and Dr. Sathluri Tejaswi
Abstract:Background: Common symptoms of sinusitis, bronchitis, and rhinitis all occur together. Because of gaps in asthma classification and the etiopathogenesis of airway disease, understanding the function of sinus disease in an asthmatic patient is usually incomplete. The connection between sinusitis and asthma is now clear.
Methods: 40 patients hospitalized to Department of TB &CD, Dhanalakshmi Srinivasan Medical College, Trichy, India with provided the clinical data for this study. Consent to participate in the study was acquired after patients were given information about it. This study was performed from January 2019 to November 2019.
Results: It has been shown that the upper and lower respiratory tracts react similarly to stimuli, and that alterations in the lower airway can be triggered by stimulation of the upper airway. Treatment of the upper airway in addition to the pulmonary component of asthma ensures comprehensive disease management, whereas pulmonary treatment alone provides only temporary improvement in the patient's health.
Conclusion: A better quality of life is achieved for asthma patients, and overall healthcare costs are reduced, when asthma episodes are less severe, fewer medications are required, and fewer hospitalizations are required due to unexpected complications. This study also provides evidence that medicinal treatment is preferable than surgical intervention.
