In recent years, the number of respiratory diseases has greatly increased due to the deterioration of environmental conditions and of a non-healthy lifestyle. Spa inhalation therapies are scientifically recognized and used in the treatment of respiratory diseases and prevention of infectious complications. The role of these treatments is becoming increasingly important in view of the fact that they concern pathologies with a high epidemiological impact both for children, with regard to the upper respiratory tract, and for those of middle and old age for the lower respiratory tract.
COLD (chronic obstructive lung disease)
Progressive lung disease is not fully reversible and clogs the airways, making breathing difficult. The blockage may improve only in part with drug therapy. Major risk factors: cigarette smoke, dust, chemicals and air pollution. Symptoms: shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath even with modest strain. Many patients have a chronic cough which is particularly intense in the morning. With the progression of the disease, periods between exacerbations become shorter until the onset of hypoxemia with cyanosis.
