Former Union minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) pioneer Arun Jaitley, 66, passed away at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here on Saturday, where he was under treatment for over a fortnight.

Jaitleywas admitted to AIIMs on 9 August after he griped of breathing issues. Prior, in September 2014, he had experienced the bariatric medical procedure to address the weight he had picked up due to a long-standing diabetic condition and in May a year ago, he went under renal transplant medical procedure at AIIMS. He likewise experienced treatment in the US in January this year.

He was one of the most expressive safeguards of the BJP and as well as policies of its government both inside Parliament and outside it.

What causes breathlessness?


Manifestations of shortness of breath can include:

• Difficulty catching your breath

• Noisy breathing

• Very fast, shallow breaths

• An increase in your pulse rate

• Wheezing

• Chest pain

• Skin that looks pale and slightly blue, especially around your mouth

• Cold, clammy skin

• Using your shoulders and the muscles in your upper chest to help you breathe

• Anxiety or panicky feelings

From the outset, you may wind up short of breath when you are strolling or climbing the stairs. In time, you may be short of breath even when resting and sitting down.


Possible causes

Other illnesses can cause breathlessness, not just cancer. For example:

• Chest infection

• Low haemoglobin levels (anaemia)

• Heart problems

• Lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

• Asthma

Discuss with your primary care physician in the event that you are stressed over your side effects, or on the off chance that they are getting worse.


Home remedies

At the point when individuals comprehend what is causing their brevity of breath and it's anything but not a medical emergency, they might need to take a stab at treating it at home.

The following exercises can help treat breathlessness at home:

1. Deep breathing

Breathing in deeply through the abdomen can help someone manage their breathlessness. To do this at home, they should:

• Lie down, putting their hands on their abdomen

• Breath in deeply through their nose, expanding their abdomen and letting the lungs fill with air

• Hold their breath for a couple of seconds

• Breathe out slowly through the mouth, emptying their lungs

• Repeat this pattern for 5 to 10 minutes


2. Pursed-lip breathing

Pursed-lip breathing helps to reduce breathlessness by slowing the pace of a person's breathing. This is particularly useful if shortness of breath is being caused by anxiety.

• To try pursed-lip breathing at home, a person should:

• Sit upright in a chair with their shoulders relaxed

• Press their lips together, keeping a gap between them in the middle

• Inhale through their nose for a couple of seconds

• Gently exhale through their pursed lips for a count of four

• Carry on inhaling and exhaling in this way for 10 minutes


3. Using a fan

The research found that using a handheld fan to blow air across the nose and face could reduce the sensation of breathlessness. Feeling the force of air while inhaling made it feel like more air is getting in. The treatment was found to be effective in reducing the sensation of breathlessness. 


4. Drinking black coffee

Drinking black coffee may help to treat breathlessness, as it has caffeine in it.

In any case, recall that drinking a lot of espresso can increase the heartbeat level. It is ideal to watch caffeine consumption during such situation..


5. Eating fresh ginger

Eating fresh ginger, or adding some to hot water as a drink, may help reduce shortness of breath caused by a respiratory infection.


We really hope Arun Jaitely’s soul rests in peace.
