frost season is at the turn of autumn and winter. At this time, cold air frequently invades, the temperature drops rapidly, the temperature difference between day and night is large, and the air is dry, which is most likely to hurt the lung, especially the multiple period of pneumonia in the elderly. Then let the old yellow calendar introduce to you how to prevent pneumonia in frost health care for the elderly.


after the frost is the frequent season of pneumonia in the elderly. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the lung is "delicate and dirty", which likes moistening and hates dryness. Dryness is the main Qi in autumn. Dryness wins dryness, which makes people's mouth and nose dry, nose dry and pharynx dry, and upper respiratory tract mucosa damaged, which is easy to cause upper respiratory tract infection. In addition, the elderly have aging respiratory tract, decreased clearance function and poor disease resistance. If the treatment is not timely or improper, the disease will quickly spread to the lower respiratory tract, resulting in pneumonia.

pneumonia in the elderly has the characteristics of concealed onset, atypical symptoms, rapid disease change, many complications and high mortality. Once the elderly suffer from pneumonia, they should be sent to the hospital for treatment in time. They must not wait and see or take it lightly, otherwise it may cause serious consequences.

in order to prevent pneumonia prone to frost in autumn and winter, people, especially the middle-aged and elderly, must take active prevention and treatment measures:

I. every time a cold and other diseases are prevalent. Try not to go to public places. Once suffering from colds or other infectious diseases, early treatment should be carried out to prevent conversion to pneumonia. II. Actively participate in physical exercise, improve lung function and disease resistance. III. properly eat more food that nourishes Yin and moistens the lungs. IV. pay attention to the hygiene of the room, keep the room clean, ventilated and sunny, and use vinegar fumigation and disinfection regularly to avoid the reproduction of bacteria and viruses in the room. V. always wash your face with cold water to improve your ability to withstand cold stimulation. Vi. when the temperature changes, the elderly should increase or decrease their clothes in time to prevent cold. VII. Quit smoking and avoid alcohol. VIII. Do not use broad-spectrum antibiotics for a long time, because broad-spectrum antibiotics often become one of the inducements of pathogenic microbial pneumonia.
