Revive yourself by breathing properly.
If you ever consider how important it is to feel well during the day, especially in demanding times when we wish that the day had 48 hours, then you should realize what a major role proper and unobstructed breathing through the nose plays, because it is one of the most decisive factors for the proper oxygenation of the body. Our nose is a very important organ that filters the air we breathe from dust, incoming viruses, bacteria, and it also heats and moistens it in order for it to be ready for the lungs.
What is the deviated nasal septum
The nasal septum is the wall between the nostrils that separates the two nasal passages, and it consists of a bony part and a cartilaginous part. The deviated septum blocks the normal passage of air through the nose. The resultapart from the common feeling of stuffiness, which the patient gets used to because he doesn’t have a comparative measure-is for some symptoms such as fatigue, headache, frequent (dry) cough, problems with the ears etc. to become permanent. I have operated on many patients that suffered from panic attacks and also had a deviated nasal septum. After surgery they realized that the panic attacks had not been caused by stress, but from a lack of air.
What is the latest surgical treatment
With endoscopic surgery all the damaged anatomical areas can be repaired, especially the posterior bony part, which is not visible with any other method. The surgery may be carried out along with other procedures to treat chronic sinusitis, bleeding, to correct sleep apnea, remove nasal polyps and turbinectomy.
What are the advantages
There is no pain, swelling or bruising and the patient can return almost immediately to work postoperatively. Healthy, young people in particular, do not normally have to be hospitalized at all.
What would you advise our readers
In terms of well-being and positive mood, the quality of everyday life is of primary importance. Consequently, it is vital, if we can find a drastic solution to some problems, to take the decision immediately. As for the deviated nasal septum, I would like to share what my patients ask me postoperatively: “Doctor, is this how other people breathe”?
