  • How do I eliminate smoke and odors after three days of someone smoking in my home?

    I have a non smoking home. However, I've had a quest who smokes and I will not tell her she can't smoke. So how do I get rid of the toxins and orders that affect my home.

  • Question about asthma?

    Best answer: I don’t know for sure what happened to your relative. Based on your description, it sounds like he had severe bronchospasm (airway swelling) rather than collapsed lungs (pneumothorax).

    Best answer: I don’t know for sure what happened to your relative. Based on your description, it sounds like he had severe bronchospasm (airway swelling) rather than collapsed lungs (pneumothorax). During an asthma attack, your airways swell and constrict and it is difficult to move air in and out of your lungs. Usually steroids and inhaled bronchodilators (breathing treatments) will help. Sometimes you need to have a breathing tube inserted and be put on a ventilator or have air forced into their lungs manually with a resuscitation bag. If the attack is severe enough, air may not be able to move in and out of the lungs at all, even with medications and a breathing tube. If it goes on long enough, your heart can stop and/or you can suffer severe brain damage or even brain death from lack of oxygen.

    Again, I don’t know exactly what happened to your friend, but I have seen the above scenario happen in the ICU, and that would be my best guess. I’m sorry for the loss of your family member.

  • What drinks cause burping?

    Best answer: Sometimes eating or drinking too fast can cause indigestion, which can make a person burp because this can send extra air into the stomach. The same thing happens when you drink through a straw: extra air in = more burps out. Burping is almost never anything to worry about.

  • What should I do about the smokers I work closely with at work?

    So at my work I work with a team of 5 other people. I spend all day with them, and unfortunately they are all smokers. I personally don’t smoke.

    So at my work I work with a team of 5 other people. I spend all day with them, and unfortunately they are all smokers. I personally don’t smoke. About 4/5 times a day we all go out behind the building for a smoke. They all smoke and I join in on the conversation. I am worried about the second hand smoke I’m breathing in. The lung cancer, breathlessness and other risks really do scare me! I do control my breathing, so then I hold my breathe whilst they’re exhaling, and breathe when the smoke isn’t as dense. Is there anyway to reduce the effects of the second hand smoke? I don’t want to refuse to go outside because I’m relatively new here, so I want to intergrate with the group, and not seem like an anti social awkward guy that no one likes. They are a nice bunch of people, really kind and fun. But I’m just worried about the smoking. I’m not going to tell them to stop, because I’m sure they’re aware of the risks, and it’s their choice. Just like not smoking is my choice. But any ideas? Thanks

  • My mum has a post op chest infection and has been given amoxicillin- does that mean it’s pneumonia? She won’t say?

  • Is "pneumonia-stricken" a word? I want to describe someone who has pneumonia?

    Best answer: It is probably OK as a compound noun, but most communication should be as simple as possible.
    If he has pneumonia you say he has pneumonia, or to be slightly fancier, he contracted pneumonia. You can say he is sick with pneumonia. "stricken" is not used in common English, but not obsolete yet.
