Types To Respiratory Infections

The most common types of respiratory infections are the upper respiratory and lower respiratory infections, although there are others. The upper respiratory tract is where the nose meets the throat and it covers the pharynx and larynx. The lower respiratory tract is where air passes through the trachea and bronchi to enter your lungs. The following are some other common types of respiratory infections:

Upper Respiratory Tract Infection (URTI)

In URTI, viruses or bacteria infect your nasal passages and throat, causing you to have a sore throat, runny nose, and cough with mucus. URTIs can be treated with medications that kill viruses or bacteria. You may also need to take antibiotics if there are signs of bacterial infection such as fever and chills.

Lower Respiratory Tract Infection (LRTI)

In LRTI, viruses or bacteria infect your lungs by entering through tiny openings called cilia on their surface. These openings look like scales on grasshopper legs; these scales make cilia move air in and out of your lungs so that you can breathe normally.

Causes Of
Respiratory Infection

The most common causes of respiratory infections are viruses. Viruses are either RNA or DNA viruses, which are small enough to be transmitted by airborne droplets. They can be spread from person to person through direct contact or indirect contacts like sharing a water bottle or sneeze-catching tissues.

Viruses can also cause respiratory tract infections when they infect the nasal passages, sinuses, and throat. This can occur through direct contact with infected people or animals as well as ingesting contaminated food or water. Most people will experience only mild symptoms but some may develop serious complications such as meningitis if they have a weakened immune system or if they have had chicken pox within the past two weeks.

When To See A Virtual Doctor For Respiratory Infections

If you are a patient with a respiratory infection, it’s important to seek medical treatment immediately. However, if you are too sick to go to the doctor's office, there are still ways to get the care you need. The first option is a virtual doctor for respiratory infection treatment. They can provide you with guidance and assistance from a remote location. They have access to all of your medical records and can give you advice on what steps need to be taken next. Virtual doctors work in many different areas of medicine, including surgery and psychiatry. They also use technology that allows them to connect with patients over video chat or phone, so they can provide care without ever seeing each other in person.

Treatment Options For

Respiratory Infections

Respiratory Infections are a common problem. They can affect anyone and cause long-term symptoms if left untreated. There are two main types of treatment for Respiratory Infections: Antibiotics and Antivirals.

Antibiotics work by killing the bacteria that cause respiratory infections. These medications are used in cases where a person has an infection that is resistant to other antibiotics or in cases where an antibiotic is needed right away, such as after surgery on the lungs.
Antivirals work by preventing viruses from forming in cells. These medications are often used to treat chronic upper respiratory infections that have not responded to other treatments, like antibiotics.
Other medications include:
Over-the-counter medications such as cough suppressants and decongestants. These can help get rid of your congestion and make breathing easier, but they are not very effective in treating the underlying illness. Many people find that they have to take more than one medication during their recovery process.
Inhalers are also easily accessible over-the-counter medications used as a convenient way to deliver medication deep into the lungs without having to suck on a tube directly into your lungs like in a nebulizer machine.
