Berodual is recommended for the treatment and prevention of chronic obstructive airway obstruction:
- Allergic and endogenous bronchial asthma.
- Chronic obstructive bronchitis with and without emphysema.
- Bronchopulmonary diseases with bronchospasms.
- Hypersensitivity of the bronchi.
- Choking cough of unclear etiology.
- Allergic cough.
Also, the drug is used in the preparation of the respiratory tract for aerosol administration of other medicines: antibiotics, mucolytics, corticosteroids and other means.
Drug belongs to bronchodilators. Its active ingredients relax the musculature of the respiratory system. Due to this, Berodual is effective in the symptomatic treatment of both wet and dry cough. The active substances penetrate well into the mucosa of the respiratory system, providing a quick therapeutic effect.
- Ipratropium bromide is included in the group of anticholinergic drugs and affects the smooth muscles of the bronchi. Reduces the severity of the reflex constriction of the bronchi, facilitates breathing.
- Feloterol is an active substance from the group of adrenoreceptors. It improves breathing due to relaxation of the smooth muscles of the bronchi. Especially effective for bronchitis of various etiologies.
The interaction of the components of the drug and their inhalation use, allows you to quickly arrest acute cough attacks of any origin in both children and adults.
With a wet and dry cough
Beta-adrenoreceptor stimulant is effective in treating various types of cough of wide etiology. That is, Berodual is prescribed for diseases with both dry and wet cough.
The active ingredients of the drug affect the muscles of the respiratory system, remove their increased tone. Reduce the reflex stimulus that enters the cough center of the brain.
The drug relieves spasms in the trachea and bronchi, normalizes the secretion of mucus in the bronchi and expands the bronchial ducts. As a result, the muscles of the respiratory system are relaxed, a coughing fit is reduced, and sputum is removed from the bronchi and trachea.
One of the indications for inhalation with Berodual is the symptomatic treatment of bronchitis, its obstructive and chronic forms.
Bronchitis is an inflammatory lesion of the respiratory system, especially the bronchi. This disease is often a complication of colds and is one of the most frequent causes of seeking medical help.
Berodual is recommended to be used in the complex therapy of bronchitis simultaneously with coughing preparations, mucolytics, antibiotics. Inhalations quickly relieve painful symptoms and speed up the healing process.
Inflammation of the mucous membranes of the larynx caused by viral or infectious pathogens is laryngitis. Most often, this disease occurs in children, causing acute damage to the larynx and the initial parts of the trachea.
Berodual is one of the most effective drugs for the treatment of various forms of laryngitis. Its active ingredients facilitate the process of breathing, preventing attacks of suffocation. The dosage and duration of therapy is determined by the attending physician, individually for each patient.
In combination with anti-inflammatory drugs, the drug prevents the development of laryngotracheitis and other complications of the disease.
Bronchial asthma is one of the most common respiratory diseases. It manifests itself with periodic attacks of breathlessness, when a person takes a breath and cannot breathe.
One of the methods to eliminate the painful symptoms of asthma is inhalation with Berodual. The instructions of the drug indicated that it can be used in asthmatic pathologies. Inhalation of its active ingredients promotes relaxation of bronchial and vascular smooth muscles, prevents stimulation of bronchoconstriction.
For inhalation, you can use an aerosol can or nebulizer. In the latter case, the drug is diluted with saline solution, so as not to provoke the development of side effects of the drug.
Tracheitis is a disease of ENT organs with marked inflammatory reactions in the tracheal mucosa. Pathology proceeds with dry, tearful cough, sore throat and sternum pain. If you leave a painful condition without proper treatment, the tracheitis will turn into the form of tracheobronchitis, the treatment of which is more complex and lengthy.
Berodual is an effective inhaled drug that should be used to relieve tracheitis symptoms. It relieves coughing, facilitates breathing, has a combined bronchodilator effect.
Inhalation is recommended using a nebulizer. The solution is mixed with sodium chloride in the proportions prescribed by the doctor. Procedures are carried out 1-2 times a day. The duration of symptomatic therapy should not exceed 5 days.
At a temperature
Inhalation administration of berodual does not imply exposure to the body of hot steam. Proceeding from this, elevated body temperature is not a contraindication for inhalation.
Procedures are prohibited in the event that the temperature is accompanied by an acute fever and causes fainting in a patient. In other cases, treatment relieves painful symptoms, improves breathing and general well-being.
Pneumonia is an inflammation of the lung tissue. The disease occurs with cough, chest pain, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing. The basis of her treatment are antibacterial drugs. Also, patients are prescribed symptomatic therapy, for example, inhalation use of drugs that improve the drainage of the bronchopulmonary system.
Berodual for pneumonia effectively relieves spasms of the respiratory organs, dilutes sputum and promotes its discharge. The drug is used for inhalation using a nebulizer. Very often, bronchodilators are combined with mucolytic and other drugs.
With a cold
Runny nose is a symptom of many diseases. One of the most effective methods of its elimination is inhalation with a nebulizer. Berodual has no direct indications for the treatment of rhinitis and is not recommended for use only with this symptom. For treatment, it is better to consult a doctor and pick up safe vasoconstrictor drops, aerosols.
But if snot appeared on the background of acute respiratory viral infections, bronchitis or obstructive airway obstruction, inhalation not only promotes the expansion of the bronchi, but also facilitates nasal breathing.
Every day, respiratory diseases caused by allergic components are increasingly diagnosed: acute and chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma, bronchitis with asthmatic components, allergic rhinitis, and more. The occurrence of these diseases indicates the pathological susceptibility of the body to allergens.
For example, allergic bronchitis occurs with allergy symptoms and acute inflammation in the bronchi. Respiratory lesions develop after contact with a causative factor. Symptoms manifest paroxysmal dry cough with wheezing and subfebrile body temperature. If due to allergens bronchospasm develops, then there is a strong shortness of breath and an acute attack of suffocation.
Such symptoms require emergency treatment. For this it is recommended to use bronchodilator drugs, that is, beta-adrenoreceptor stimulants. This pharmacological group includes Berodual. Inhalation of the drug has such an effect on the body:
- Promotes relaxation of smooth muscles of the bronchi.
- Expands the bronchi and facilitates breathing.
- Prevents the release of mediators inflammation.
- Suppresses bronchospasms caused by various allergens (cold air, tobacco smoke, the smell of household chemicals and more).
Before using the inhalation agent, you should ensure that there are no allergic reactions to its components. The dosage of the drug depends on the individual characteristics of the patient, therefore, is chosen by the attending physician.
Inhalation is carried out using an aerosol spicer or nebulizer. In the first case, 1-2 injections are enough to relieve pathological symptoms. When using a nebulizer, bronchodilators diluted with saline (1-2 ml of the drug in 2-3 ml of sodium chloride) and inhale. Procedures can be carried out up to 3-4 times a day.
For lung cancer
One of the signs of lung cancer is difficulty breathing and airway obstruction. Because of the malignant process, the patient accumulates sputum, which is difficult to cough up. In order to alleviate the pathological condition, inhalations with Berodual are recommended.
The active ingredients of the drug effectively expand the bronchi and improve breathing. Inhalations are carried out 2-3 times a day using a nebulizer or an aerosol can.
