Winter people often close doors and windows for a long time, coupled with heating will cause indoor temperature rise, poor air circulation, very dry, resulting in the decline of immune function and resistance, resulting in people restless, nasopharyngeal dryness, dizziness, weakness and so on, these symptoms are medically known as “heating disease”. Heating sickness injures five systems of babies.
The biggest cause of “heating disease” is the dryness of air and the loss of water in human body. Normally, the human body evaporates about 1000 milliliters of water every day, including 600 – 700 milliliters through the skin and 300 – 400 milliliters through the respiratory tract. After heating, the indoor drying, the loss of more water, a long time in such an environment, cardiovascular, urinary system and other five parts of the body will follow the “disaster”.
1. Respiratory system
Dry lips, dry nasopharynx and hoarseness of dry cough are all symptoms of upper respiratory tract caused by “heating disease”. Usually, these symptoms can be alleviated if the water is replenished in time, but if the duration is too long, the secretion of respiratory mucosa will be reduced, dust and bacteria will adhere to the mucosa, stimulate the larynx to cause cough, easily lead to upper respiratory tract infection, bronchitis, bronchial asthma and other diseases. With heating, a dry and warm room is like a “hotbed” of pathogens. Studies have shown that when air humidity is less than 40%, the reproduction rate of cold viruses and other bacteria that can cause infection will accelerate, and the spread of dust in the air will lead to disease.
TIPS: Babies with abnormal breathing are different from snoring
1. Babies tend to snore when sleeping on their backs (facing up), and the roots of their tongues fall backward due to gravity, which semi-obstructs the respiratory passage in their throats and throats.
2. Baby’s respiratory passages, such as nostrils, nasal cavity, oropharynx, are relatively narrow, slightly secretory or mucosal swelling is easy to obstruct. Therefore, babies within half a year old often have nasal sounds, nasal congestion or murmur of phlegm in their throats.
3. When a baby’s cold causes swelling of the throat, inflammation of the tonsils, and increased secretions, it is more likely to cause airflow irregularities and increase snoring.
