NEBULIZER - Device used to deliver liquid medication in the form of a fine mist is called nebulizer. Patient inhales the medication while breathing normally through a mouthpiece or face mask.

ASTHMA (Breathlessness)
Asthma is an allergic disorder characterised by breathlessness, which is the result of a spasmodic narrowing of the respiratory passages.
In ASTHMA there are paroxysmal attacks of dyspnoea. Inspiration (drawing in air) is short. Expiration is prolonged.
Cause is narrowing of trachea, bronchi and bronchioles especially marked during expiration. Asthma may occur at any age.There may be a family history of allergy (urticaria, hay fever, migraine, attacks of asthma). Asthma attack may last for minutes, hours or days. Homoeopathy may do a great good to the suffering humanity in this very painful troubling disease.

  Calculate your Body Mass Index  
  The body mass index (BMI) is a statistical measure of the weight of a person scaled according to height. BMI is calculated as the individual's body weight divided by the square of their height.

BMI is frequently used to assess how much an individual's body weight departs from what is normal or desirable for a person of his or her height. The excess weight or deficiency may, in part, be accounted for by body fat although other factors such as muscularity also affect BMI.
