Respiratory tract infectionsThe diversification of infections and their changeability and occasionally unforeseeable progress preclude the development of a universal treatment scheme. Children, adults and pregnant women cannot be treated with the same cold remedy. Each of these groups requires an individual approach and individual selection of treatment method. We often need to determine the stage of a disease’s progress – is it still a viral infection or already a bacterial complication? Can we still administer medications providing relief from symptoms or is it necessary to begin administering an antibiotic? Very often the natural progress of a disease leads to cure without medical intervention. However, ignoring a problem may lead to a future complication, e.g. an untreated bacterial throat infection can lead to joint or cardiac valve damage.
Our doctors, thanks to their long experience, will advise you on the optimal course of action in a given situation. They will confirm or negate past courses of action. They will decide on the best time to introduce an antibiotic and on possible additional examinations. We cooperate with a laryngologist in diagnosis of sinusitis and detection of the cause of recurring infections; very often there will be a need for preventive actions, such as septoplasty, i.e. a corrective procedure performed to straighten the nasal septum, or the treatment of a coexisting allergy.
ANY DECISION ON THE TREATMENT OF AN INFECTION IS PRECEDED BY THE TAKING OF A MEDICAL HISTORY AND EXAMINATION OF THE PATIENT.
