Chronic pneumonia – may be the outcome of acute or occur as a complication of chronic bronchitis, as well as foci of infection in the paranasal sinuses (sinusitis), in the upper respiratory tract. An important role is played by factors that contribute to the weakening of the body and its restructuring allergic (chronic infection and intoxication, adverse environmental effects – rapid changes in temperature, pollution of air and dust, etc.). The disease runs in waves with periods of remission and exacerbation of the process. In the latter case, there are similar to the acute process symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, fever), but, in contrast to acute pneumonia, these effects subside slowly and full recovery may not come. Exacerbations depends on the characteristics of the patient, the environmental conditions. Lengthy and often leads to sclerosis of the lung tissue (pulmonary fibrosis) and bronchiectasis – bronchiectasis. These complications, in turn, aggravates the course of pneumonia – extends the period of exacerbation, broken ventilation, gas exchange, pulmonary failure, possible changes in the cardiovascular system.
The heating elements are superimposed on the number one interscapular region and a projection on the chest source of inflammation. Exposure time is 20-40 minutes. Procedures are carried out 2 times a day. The course of treatment is 15-20 procedures.
Note: thermal influence on the heart’s area is not carried out.
