Asthma is controllable, but it can be scary and even dangerous if it’s not kept in check—and having allergies can be downright annoying. Having both asthma and allergies, though, can be the source of some major problems, and the two often coexist. Often, asthma worsens when allergies do—during the spring and late summer.

If you've been prescribed oxygen therapy, it's essential that you get the dosage you need. This is why it's important to purchase an oxygen concentrator from a reputable seller. Everyone is looking for a bargain, but lower prices and easy access to oxygen concentrators can spell trouble.
Amazon can be a great place to shop for just about anything. Medical supplies, especially sophisticated equipment like oxygen concentrators, are a different story. Products that require a prescription cannot be sold on Amazon, and are against their seller regulations.
Before you buy an oxygen flow meter, there is something to learn about in advance: your breathing pattern can affect the final oxygen dose you receive from your flow meter.
Many patients receiving oxygen therapy aren’t fully aware that various breathing patterns have direct effects on how they set their oxygen flow meter.
Your physician prescribes oxygen at a specific dose, one that is appropriate for your condition. However, even though your doctor has prescribed a set liter flow for you (usually 1–3 liters per minute), many variables affect that liter flow. And some can lead to dramatic shifts in the amount of oxygen you are receiving.
How does this happen? The main problem affecting your therapeutic oxygen level is air dilution.
Having COPD can make life more challenging, even when it comes to everyday things and small tasks. If you need a little bit of help throughout the day, you might want to consider getting a service dog. They aren't just for the blind, even though that's what they're most commonly used for, and they are called "seeing eye dogs" to distinguish them from other types of service dogs for those with other medical needs and disabilities.
Of course, you'll need to talk to your doctor and do some of your research before making a serious decision about getting a service dog.

Acute bronchitis is an infection that leads to inflammation and increased mucus production in the lungs. The symptoms may be similar to other respiratory illness—coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing, or chest tightness or pain are all common symptoms of acute bronchitis. 
A persistent cough is the most common symptom that indicates bronchitis—the cough may or may not be productive, and if it is, the sputum (mucus or phlegm) expelled may be yellow or greenish or clear.  Other non-respiratory symptoms include fatigue or tiredness, and slight fever or chills.  It is common for acute bronchitis to onset alongside or just after having a cold, flu or other respiratory virus or infection.  Nasal congestion or sinusitis may also accompany or lead to developing acute bronchitis.
