To clear the airways : An effective and pleasant therapeutic gesture
Among all the therapeutic options available, inhalations of water vapor enriched with essential oils occupy a prominent place. They are beneficial for two reasons. Firstly, the water vapor exerts a moisturizing and soothing action on the mucous membranes and helps to restore the activity of the vibrating eyelashes. Secondly, the substances contained in the essential oils of eucalyptus, rosemary or thyme for example have, among other things, an antiseptic action. Inhalations therefore clear the airways and, to a certain extent, "disinfect" them.

GLOSSARY (summary)


alcohol
General name designating a family of substances that have the property of being able to be mixed with water and fatty substances. The most common alcohol is ethyl alcohol (ethanol), but there are many other alcohols: methanol, butanol, etc. The degree of alcoholic solution corresponds to the volume of pure alcohol present in 100 ml of solution, knowing that 1 glass of wine or 1/2 of beer (25 cl) contains about 8 g of alcohol.
When alcohol is used as an antiseptic, an unpleasant odor denaturant is often added to prevent drinking. Contrary to a widespread belief, alcohol at 70o (or even at 60o) is a better antiseptic than alcohol at 90o.


antecedent
Affection healed or always in evolution. The antecedent may be personal or family. The background is the history of a person's health.


convulsions
Involuntary contractions limited to a few muscles or generalized to the whole body. They are due to excessive pain or stimulation of the brain: fever, poisoning, lack of oxygen, brain damage. Convulsions may be due to an epileptic seizure or high fever in young children.


epilepsy
A chronic seizure disorder associated with abnormal electrical activity of a group of brain cells. Its manifestations, varying in intensity, range from the sudden drop in attention (absences, or small evil) to loss of consciousness accompanied by abnormal muscle movements (convulsions, or great evil). Partial epilepsy, as its name implies, does not concern the whole body: the jerky movements only touch one or more muscle groups.


inhalation
  • A general term for the absorption through the mouth and nose of gaseous substances or suspended particles that diffuse into the respiratory tract after deep breathing.
  • Method of administration of volatile substances, dissolved in hot water. These substances are intended to act on the respiratory tract. Unlike the aerosol, which requires electrical equipment, inhalation is practiced in a simple way: by breathing the vapors of a solution contained in a bowl, the head covered with a towel. There are inexpensive inhaler bowls in pharmacies with a mouthpiece covering the mouth and nose.


mucous
Tissue (membrane) that lines the cavities and ducts of the body communicating with the outside (digestive tract, respiratory tract, urinary tract, etc.).


dosages
Quantity and distribution of the dose of a drug according to the age, weight and general condition of the patient.


allergic reaction
Reaction due to hypersensitivity of the organism to a drug. Allergic reactions can take a wide variety of aspects: urticaria, angioedema, eczema, eruption of pimples resembling measles, etc. Anaphylactic shock is a generalized allergic reaction that causes discomfort due to a sudden drop in blood pressure.


terpenes
A general term for aromatic substances of vegetable origin. These are traditionally used for their respiratory properties (stimulating, expectorant, antiseptic) and their revulsive power when applied to the skin. The most used are camphor, menthol, eucalyptol, essential oils of mint, turpentine, niaouli, pine, anise, etc.
Some terpenes, and especially camphor, have been responsible for convulsions, respiratory pauses in the infant, in case of overdose. They can also cause behavioral problems in the elderly. These products should be used with caution at the extreme ages of life.


way
  • Pathway (route of administration) used to administer drugs: oral, sublingual, subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravenous, intradermal, transdermal.
  • Set of hollow organs allowing passage of air (respiratory tract), food (digestive tract), urine (urinary tract), bile (bile ducts), etc.
