Tal y como mencionábamos anteriormente en el blog, la enfermedad pulmonar obstructiva crónica, o EPOC, es una enfermedad progresiva que causa dificultad para respirar. Se caracteriza por un bloqueo persistente del flujo de aire y es una enfermedad subdiagnosticada y potencialmente mortal que altera la respiración normal. [1]

Dicha enfermedad esta fuertemente ligada a las exposiciones ambientales y de comportamiento que se producen durante la edad adulta, siendo una de las mayores causas la exposición al tabaco. Sin embargo, recientemente, según publicaciones oficiales en The Lancer Respiratory Medicine, se está barajando una nueva via de investigación que centra toda su atención a la idea de que los factores y procesos de desarrollo que ocurren en la infancia podrían predisponer a ciertas personas a padecer esta enfermedad.[2]

De este modo, estudio prospectivos recientes demuestran que la función pulmonar al nacer se encuentra asociada con la de la infancia y la edad adulta, y que los niños con asma y síntomas similares al asma tienen déficit de la función pulmonar temprana. Por ello, este hecho podría suponer un riesgo de padecer EPOC en la vida adulta.

TRATAMIENTOS PREVENTIVOS:  BUBBLE KIDS

Tras esta nueva vía de investigación abierta, surge la necesidad de crear estrategias preventivas aplicables en las primeras etapas de la vida para, así, optimizar la salud pulmonar a largo plazo.

Los beneficios de la utilización de una atmosfera libre de partículas y gases contaminantes como terapia coadyuvante en patologías relacionadas con el medio ambiente, se están convirtiendo en el futuro terapéutico y, especialmente en el caso de los niños.

Por ello, ZONAIR3D ha desarrollado una tecnología que garantiza la disposición de aire puro libre de partículas contaminantes y gases tóxicos, cancerígenos e irritantes en un espacio ideal para los más pequeños: BUBBLE KIDS. La burbuja, disponible en diversos tamaños y totalmente customizable, se convierte en un lugar perfecto para que los niños disfruten jugando en un ambiente de aire puro al 99,995%.

COPD IN CHILDREN, NEW WAYS OF RESEARCH AND PREVENTIVE TREATMENTS

Little girl coughing at the doctor checkup - a health profession

As mentioned earlier in the blog, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, is a progressive disease that causes difficulty breathing. It is characterized by a persistent blockage of airflow and is an underdiagnosed and potentially fatal disease that modifies normal breathing.[1]

COPD is strongly linked to environmental and behavioral exposures that occur during adulthood, being one of the common causes exposure to tobacco. But recently, according to publications in The Lancer Respiratory Medicine, it’s being considered a new way of research that focuses all his attention to the idea that the factors and developmental processes that occur in childhood may predispose certain people to suffer this disease. [2]

Thus, recent prospective study demonstrated that lung function at birth is associated with childhood and adulthood, and that children with asthma and asthma-like symptoms have deficits of early lung function. Therefore, this could pose a risk of COPD in adult life.


PREVENTIVE TREATMENT: BUBBLE KIDS

After this new opened way of research, there is a need for preventive strategies during the initial stages of life, thus optimizing the long-term lung health.

The benefits of using an atmosphere free of particulates and gaseous pollutants as adjunctive therapy in pathologies related to the environment, are becoming the therapeutic future, particularly for children.

Therefore, ZONAIR3D has developed a technology that ensures the provision of pure air free of polluted particles and toxic, carcinogenic and irritant gases inside and ideal space for children: BUBBLE KIDS. The bubble, available in different sizes and fully customizable, it becomes a perfect place for children to enjoy playing in an atmosphere of pure air up to 99.995%.
