Disease history

Anamnesis morbi:

He considers himself to be sick for 5 months, after becoming hypothermic for the first time he began to notice a cough with sputum, dyspnoea with physical exertion, which grew in dynamics and was periodically intensified. Later, tachypnea, pains in coughing in the thoracic region were added. Addressed to the therapist at the place of residence. He was treated out-patient (the name of the drug does not remember), without the effect the respiratory syndrome persisted. With increasing cough for a month, he took ACTS, antibacterial therapy (the name does not remember), with a short-term effect. Fluorogram of the chest from 09.01.2018: X-ray picture of chronic bronchitis in the acute stage. According to the report, he was hospitalized for inpatient treatment in the Main Military Clinical Hospital of the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the therapeutic department.

Laboratory methods (need to make)

  • General analysis of blood:

In chronic bronchitis, a general blood test in the remission phase usually does not reveal abnormalities. In the phase of exacerbation caused by bacterial infection, a shift of the leukocyte formula to the left, a moderate neutrophilic leukocytosis (10-12 * 109 / L) and a slight increase in ESR are observed.

When the virus nature is aggravated, the rate of erythrocyte sedimentation is also increased, but the level of leukocytes is usually below the norm, and the level of lymphocytes is increased.

An increase in the content of eosinophils at a normal level of leukocytes is characteristic for bronchitis of an allergic nature. Erythrocytosis (an increase in the concentration of erythrocytes and hemoglobin to compensate for hypoxia) is typical of obstructive chronic bronchitis with impaired ventilation of the lungs.

Analysis of sputum during chronic bronchitis

1) sputum character – during bronchitis sputum is  mucous (less often – purulent or mucopurulent, which speaks of purulent bronchitis, bronchopneumonia);

2) the amount of separated sputum – for bronchitis is characterized by dry cough, then appears mucous, sometimes mucopurulent sputum in a moderate amount;

3) leukocytes – neutrophilic leukocytes will be determined in an amount that depends on the intensity of inflammation (normal – 1-3 leukocytes);

4) alveolar macrophages

During different forms of chronic bronchitis, sputum appears in different cells. For all forms, a significant number of macrophages, neutrophilic leukocytes, epithelial cells are present in the bronchial mucus.

Bronchial asthma: At the beginning of an attack of bronchial asthma, a small amount of sputum is separated, at the end of the attack its amount increases. Sputum in bronchial asthma is mucous. In It can be found cells of the cylindrical epithelium (both single and in the form of clusters), eosinophils, Courshmann spirals, Charcot-Leiden crystals.

  • Biochemical analysis of blood

Reveals a nonspecific marker of inflammation – C-reactive protein, a significant concentration of sialic acids, haptoglobin, acetylcholine. Serum is dominated by y-globulins and α2-globulins, and the albumin-globulin coefficient is reduced. Serological analysis supplements sputum smear, it is most informative for atypical bronchitis, as it allows to detect specific antibodies to chlamydia, mycoplasmas. In obstructive bronchitis there are changes in the blood gas composition – partial pressure, the volume content and oxygen level in it is reduced, and the partial pressure of carbon dioxide is increased. Thus, laboratory tests allow you to put the most accurate diagnosis.

  • General urine analysis.

It is used to control the reaction of the kidneys to the inflammatory process: take an urine test in an acute period, after 2 weeks (at the end of treatment) and after 1 and 2 months.

  • A blood test for total IgE

Shows the level of this immunoglobulin in the blood, which is produced during an allergic reaction. It can be increased with the help of many allergic diseases, but its normal amount does not exclude bronchial asthma and other atopic processes. Therefore, it is much more informative to determine in specific blood IgE antibodies to specific allergens.

Instrumental methods ( need to make)

  • Bronchography

X-ray diagnostic procedure using the method contrasting of bronchi.

  • Bronchoscopy

Visualization of the bronchial mucosa using a fibrobronchoscope. The procedure makes it possible to see inflamed mucous in acute bronchitis, as well as any pathological foci with other diseases of the respiratory system. The positive thing is that with this method there is the possibility of taking the altered tissue for a histological examination (bronchoscopy with tissue biopsy) in order to confirm the inflammatory nature of the changes and to exclude neoplasms.

  • Pneumatic tachometry

A method of measuring the maximum air flow rate that is achieved with forced inspiration and expiration. In practical medicine, evaluation of parameters of forced expiration is more important, they are highly informative for differential diagnosis of various types of bronchial obstruction.

  • Spirometry

Spirographic indicators, the most important are the Tiffno index, the ratio of volume of forced exhalation per second (VFE1) to vital capacity of the lungs( VCL), and the rate of air movement (ratio MVL and  VCL). The study of ventilation indicators allows to determine the degree of reversible component of bronchial obstruction.

The main analyzed index is VFE1, that is, the volume of forced exhalation per second. Simply put, this is the amount of air that a person can quickly exhale within 1 second. With bronchial spasm, air leaves the respiratory tract more slowly than in a healthy person, the VFE1 index decreases.

  • Pulse oximetry

Study performed with a small device called a pulse oximeter, which is usually worn on the patient’s finger. It determines the saturation of the arterial blood with oxygen (SpO2). If this figure is less than 92%, a study should be made of the composition of the gas and the acidity (pH) of the blood. Reducing the level of oxygen saturation testifies to severe respiratory insufficiency and a threat to the life of the patient. The decrease in the partial pressure of oxygen and the increase in the partial pressure of carbon dioxide, determined in the study of the composition of the gas, indicate the need for artificial ventilation of the lungs.

  • Computed tomography
  • Radiography of the lungs
  • Electrocardiography

ECG is necessary to detect the development of hypertrophy of the right ventricle and right atrium with pulmonary hypertension.
