Appendicitis: Symptoms, Causes and Treatment

However, if the infection has spread due to the bursting of the appendix, a larger incision is made to clean the infection. Antibiotics are administered thereafter.

Appendicitis is a painful medical condition where the appendix gets inflamed, swollen and filled with pus. The appendix is a small, 3 ½ inches long (finger-shaped) tube that extends from the large intestine and appears on the right side of the abdomen. The role of the appendix is not definitely known but there was a study that suggested it might play a role in gut immunity.

Your Lung Health Might Affect your Heart … Know more!

lung health affects the heart

We breathe in and breathe out to keep our body living and healthy but never for once do we think how hard the lungs work to keep up with the respiratory function. We take our body for granted most times and we realize its importance only when it starts breaking down.  Since breathing is a part and parcel of our living, we seldom take care of our lungs intentionally and realize its importance only when we face some respiratory issues. When our lungs are not functioning properly we also face some serious heart problems.
