This is very common in children younger than age 8, as their immature ear can be easily infected. Their Eustachian tube (the tube that connectsrepparttar 149113 throat andrepparttar 149114 middle ear) is shorter, softer and more horizontal which is more easily blocked by secretions than those of older children or adults. Also, very exposed could be infants because of their sucking habit. Always keep a breast or bottle feeding baby under an angle to prevent enteringrepparttar 149115 liquid into theirs immature ear. During a cold, throat infection, allergy or other upper respiratory infection,repparttar 149116 Eustachian tube swells and prevents air from enteringrepparttar 149117 middle ear, leading to allowingrepparttar 149118 secretions to enter torepparttar 149119 middle ear and be trapped there.

Inrepparttar 149128 range of 0.1-2.5 microns -repparttar 149129 same size asrepparttar 149130 most damaging micro particles from auto and industrial pollution, and invisible torepparttar 149131 human eye --repparttar 149132 micro particles of salt penetrate into every corner ofrepparttar 149133 bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli and deposit uponrepparttar 149134 surface, cleaning secretions, killing microbes and bacteria, leading in turn to a reduction in inflammation. Acting as a mucokinetic, they restorerepparttar 149135 normal transport of mucus and unclog blockages inrepparttar 149136 bronchi and bronchioles and upper respiratory tract. The inhaled saline (NaCl) is hydrophilic, so it absorbsrepparttar 149137 edema fromrepparttar 149138 mucosa liningrepparttar 149139 airway passages. Inrepparttar 149140 bronchial tree: Absorption ofrepparttar 149141 inflammatory edema fromrepparttar 149142 mucosa liningrepparttar 149143 bronchial tree, causing asthma, will be diminished, leading to widening ofrepparttar 149144 airway passages. Also, it humidifies and fluidizesrepparttar 149145 bronchial secretions inrepparttar 149146 bronchial tree leading torepparttar 149147 relief ofrepparttar 149148 broncho- spasm assisting and improvingrepparttar 149149 treatment of asthma.
