Sinusitis Patients - Sinusitis and Biofilms - an Introduction - Part 1

Why is it that some sinusitis sufferers do not respond to normal treatments, medications and surgical procedures and continue to come down with sinus infections regardless of the treatment they have been given? One answer to this question appears to be an atypical immune reaction to fungus, and topical anti-fungal therapies heave been developed by Mayo Clinic researchers. Another possible answer to this question has surfaced in the past couple of years: biofilms. This article is meant to be a brief introduction to biofilms and how they might be a factor in recurring sinus infections. :)

Definition, Description and Medical Implications of Biofilms

What are biofilms and how to they resist normal treatments for sinusitis such as antibiotics? 'Biofilms are composed of microbal communities that are attached to an environmental surface. The microorganisms usually encase themselves in an extra-cellular polysaccharide or slime matrix'. In other words, biofilms are a collection of bacteria and other microbes that encase themselves in a sort of slime. It is apparently the slime material that protects the bacteria from being destroyed by antibiotics, for example. Biofilms have been shown to play a major part in other medical conditions involving chronic infections, such as cystic fibrosis, Legionnaire's Disease, and otitis media, the most common type of acute ear infection in children in the U.S., among others. In addition, they can also form on medical implanted products such as stents, implants, catheters, and other devices. They appear to destroy cilia when present in sinusitis patients, and the loss of cilia is detrimental to the normal drainage system of nasal passages, so this is a serious issue since destroyed cilia cannot be replaced. Ignorance is bliss, is it? Isn't it better to learn more than not to know about something like Recurring Sinus Infections. So we have produced this article so that you can learn more about it! :oops:

Non-Medical Implications of Biofilms

Biofilms are not just associated with medical conditions, however. In fact biofilms are ubiquitous and can form under the right conditions on almost any kind of surface, including metals, rock, and of course human tissue. Two common examples of biofilms are pond scum and dental plaque. Detrimental biofilms are the cause of billions of dollars in damaged products and equipment systems in such fields as food processing, water treatment and metal-working. The also cause damage by clogging household drains and water pipes. Their effects are not always harmful, however, for example when they attach to the roots of certain plants they seem to aid the transfer of nutrients from the soil to the plant. Also, they are used in sewage treatment facilities to help treat sewage water before it is released to the environment, and they are utilized in treating contaminated ground water as well. Writing is something that has to be done when one is in the mood to write. So when we got in the mood to write about Chronic Sinus, nothing could stop us from writing!

One of the main causes of sinus infection is cause and triggered by a polluted air that we breathe. Almost every corner of the space we move in is affected and was contaminated by air pollutants that in serious cases can contain harsh elements that can give a greater possibility of causing sinus infection. Even offices, motels, restaurants and shops including apartments, warehouses, laboratories, dark rooms and production areas is not anymore a pollutant free. But now devices are invented to help you control some of those elements that pollute the air. Especially made to prevent sinus infection problems, the following are beneficial devices.

Sinus Infection Steam Cleaner

Sinus infection steam cleaner is a device used for cleaning houses, offices and other facilities. This device uses steam in order to clean. Sinus infection steam cleaner is easy to use. There are portable sinus infection steam cleaners that can remove stains fast and easy, with high durability. These portable steam cleaners are easy to carry around a house or office. :shock:

Sinus Infection Furnace

Sinus infection furnace filter is important thing in your home, office and other industrial sites. All of the people are looking for a clean air. It helps because it can reduce visible dust in present in your surroundings. It is best remedy in sinusitis problems There are types of air filters. There are fiberglass filters which is the least expensive, that is designed to block the large dust and particles to protect the furnace. Another is the washable electronic filters that attracts dust and have coarse much effective than the disposable one. Pleated filter helps eliminate large allergens like molds and pollens. Meanwhile, the most innovative filter is the electronic air cleaner that magnetizes the pollutants and collects them on the filter material. :)

I am not expecting to be in this field. But nevertheless, I love to read books...almost everything interest me. Reading is my passion! And now that I am in an article writer team, writing gives me an additional thrill in myself...Before I love to read books but now I'm also in a writing stuff. I can say that I am not a good writer but I am always trying to be one. Dwelving into the interiors of Sinus has led us to all this information here on Sinus. Sinus do indeed have a lot to tell!Dwelving into the interiors of Sinus has led us to all this information here on Sinus. Sinus do indeed have a lot to tell!

Air Purifiers

Sinus infection air purifiers are designed to treat the indoor air that has become polluted by particulates or gases. Sinus infection air purifiers and air cleaners are terms, which are synonymous with each other. Breathing clean air is of great importance to anyone who wants a healthy life, and especially for those who suffer from allergies like rhinitis, dust mite allergy, pet allergy, hay fever or multiple chemical sensitivities. :roll:

Natural Sinus Sprays That Didn't Work (Even though they had GOOD reviews!)


Sinus Dehumidifier

Sinus infection dehumidifier is another device that removes the moisture from the air. It converts the moisture to a cold surface. It is same as air conditioner that has both hot and cold coils in one box. A fan draws the room's air over the cold coil of the air conditioner to condense the moisture. The dry air then passes through the hot coil to heat it back up to its original temperature. :oops:

Many units of sinus infection air purifiers are available in the market today and most of them filter pollen, dust, mould spores, pet dander, airborne particles and some smells, and some of the higher tech models will also deal with an array of chemicals as well. It was with keen interest that we got about to writing on Sinus Infections. Hope you read and appreciate it with equal interest.


People with multiple chemical sensitivities can react to almost anything, so the correct choice of air purifier is extremely important, since this person could react to the material that makes up the air purifier such as glue on the hepa filter or out gassing from plastic parts. With the availability of air purifiers the chances of having a sinus problem becomes lesser, the cleaner the air we breathe the safer it is for sinus infections. Aiming high is our motto when writing about any topic. In this way, we tend to add whatever matter there is about Sinus, rather than drop any topic. :o.

This device, aids those who are suffering from any types of sinusitis, like, acute sinusitis, chronic sinusitis or fungal sinusitis, by eliminating all dusts and other allergy causing bacteria inside the house office or building. By doing this, further complications to a person's sinuses are evaded. This is good especially for those persons who have acute sinusitis and for those who have fungal sinusitis. We have also translated parts of this composition into French and Spanish to facilitate easier understanding of Sinusitis. In this way, more people will get to understand the composition.
