Is it possible to do inhalation at a temperature?
There are many ways to treat viral infections - from traditional remedies to modern innovative methods, and in all the variety of methods it is important to choose the most effective, corresponding to specific symptoms and the general condition of the patient.
One of the most popular means in the treatment of colds, flu and a variety of associated inflammatory processes is the use of inhalation. This is not surprising, because this method with its simplicity and affordability is very effective. As you know, during inhalation, the active substances act directly on the mucous membrane, which ensures their speedy absorption and manifestation of the therapeutic effect. However, as with any other medical procedure, inhalation treatment requires adherence to certain rules.
One of the most frequently asked questions - is it possible to do inhalation at a temperature? Temperature rise is one ofconstant symptoms of colds, and it is quite reasonable in the course of treatment to avoid procedures that promote its further growth (warming up, steaming, etc.). Traditional inhalations, such as inhaling copious amounts of medicinal plant vapors, do increase body temperature, which reduces the protective functions of the body. Therefore, such inhalations at high temperatures (from 37.5) are not recommended.
What to do if it is not possible to bring down the temperature, but there is a need to use a certain drug by inhalation? Reasonable way out - inhalation with a nebulizer at a temperature. The nebulizer is a special device that disperses a small cloud with the smallest particles of the drug that penetrate directly into the respiratory system. The main advantage of such an inhaler is that the steam produced by it does not contribute to overheating of the body, providing only a therapeutic effect. So, when the temperature can be inhaled using a nebulizer, however, subject to the standard rules of inhalation (do not eat an hour before inhalation, follow the rules and sequence of drugs, breathe measuredly during the procedure) and only after consulting a doctor.
