~Sedu~

Pernah mengalami sedu?

Sedu ataupun "Hiccup" kebiasaannya terjadi pada golongan kanak-kanak yang meningkat remaja. Bak kata orang tua, sedu merupakan petanda kanak-kanak tersebut akan makin membesar. Jika situasi ini berlaku pada golongan dewasa, apa pendapat korang semua? Sejak kelmarin, aku asyik tersedu-sedu. Mak aku kata kena minum air masak banyak, mungkin badan kurang air. Berbotol-botol air mineral aku dah minum, tak jadi apa pun. Mama zai (gelaran buat staff MARDI yang aku anggap macam mak sendiri) suruh aku minum air dalam seteguk nafas. Alhamdullilah sedu makin berkurangan. Buat sesiapa yang tak pernah kena sedu, aku kongsikan informasi-informasi berkenaan sedu atau hiccup supaya korang semua dapat memahami dan bertindak untuk mengatasi sedu. Info ini aku dapatkan dari Wikipedia : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiccup

Definition:

A hiccup or hiccough is a contraction of the diaphragm that repeats several times per minute. In humans, the abrupt rush of air into the lungs causes the vocal cords to close, creating a "hic" sound. In medicine it is known as synchronous diaphragmatic flutter (SDF), or singultus, from the Latin singult, "the act of catching one's breath while sobbing".


Causes:
  • nervous system disorders.
  • From injury or irritation to the phrenic and vagus nerves.
  • Toxic or metabolic disorders affecting the nervous system.
  • Chronic, unremitting hiccups are a sign of hyperglycemia .
  • After consuming carbonated beverages, alcohol, dry breads, and even spicy foods.
  • Prolonged laughter or eating too fast are also known to cause hiccups.
  • Chemotherapy—which can include a large number of different drugs—has been implicated in hiccups (some data states 30 percent of patients), while other studies have not demonstrated such a relationship. Many times chemotherapy is applied to tumors sitting at places that are by themselves prone to cause hiccups, if irritated.
  • A Pleural effusion may present in the form of hiccups.
  • As a side effect of a medicine
  • In dogs, hiccups are generally the result of late stage liver disease
 Treatment:

Ordinary hiccups resolve on their own without medical intervention. Some of the more common home remedies include giving the afflicted a fright or shock, sticking your finger in your mouth not in a way that will induce vomiting but to massage the back of your throat in which will stop the irritation in the epiglottis, taking a teaspoon of vinegar, taking a teaspoon of peanut butter, drinking water (in an unorthodox manner, leaning over and drinking from the opposite side) or drinking a full glass through a paper towel, holding one's breath and altering one's breathing patterns.
