When this mechanism is interfered with and breaks down, it is called Mucociliary
This phenomenon is called "mucociliary
The main aim of functional endoscopic sinus surgery is the removal of disease in the ostiomeatal complex region, thereby restoring the normal mucociliary
drainage of the sinuses.
After 2 h of intubation mucociliary
clearance velocity will reduce to half.
clearance which is the first defense mechanism against M.
Maxilary sinusitis is caused by temporary and/or reversible mucociliary
dyskinesia (2), which could be caused by some osteomeatal obstructions, allergy, and among other conditions, as well as abnormal growths, such as nasal septal deviations (NSD), concha bullosa (CB) (3-7).
Fennel - improves efficiency of mucociliary
transport and thus alleviate cough caused by cold or lamig
ESS functions to aerate the paranasal sinuses and remove polyps, fungus, and debris that can impede mucociliary
clearance, all while attempting to preserve normal mucosal tissue as much as possible.
Particles are <0.5 [micro] mts in diameter, which may pass beyond the mucociliary
clearance system and enter the terminal airways and alveoli. It is characterized by granulomatous and fibrotic changes and emphysema in the lungs, and is believed to be caused by chronic stimulation of phagocytic cells such as macrophages and the subsequent release of inflammatory mediators. As most of the workers are uneducated and lack the knowledge about the respiratory impairment caused by these dust and chemicals and also lack of funds and resources by the management people these workers become vulnerable to respiratory impairment and diseases.
Antimicrobial proteins and peptides (AMPs) present in this ASL prevent microbial colonization and infections by displaying direct microbial killing activity or by reducing the availability of important micronutrients., Another host defense mechanism is mediated by secreted gel-forming mucins, present in the ASL as discontinuing floating strands or rafts., These mucins can entrap microorganisms and large particles and are subsequently removed through mucociliary
'When people smoke, they have difficulty releasing phlegm because the normal mucociliary
function of the airways gets damage, so their ability to cough up phlegm is affected,' she explained.
Treatment is aimed at restoring normal mucociliary
function and clearance of the sinuses may be undertaken10.
