a) Los corticosteroides inhalados . Al oir la palabra “esteroides”, muchas personas imaginan que se trata de aquello que usan los atletas para aumentar su musculatura y que provocan problemas y efectos secundarios; no se confunda. Estos son esteroides anabólicos y no son los mismos que se usan para tratar el asma.
Los corticosteroides inhalados se utilizan para prevenir y controlar el asma ya que reducen la inflamación y también la mucosidad en los pulmones. Ejemplo de ellos son: mometasona, beclometasona, budesonida, fluticasona, flunisolida y triamcinolona.
EPs are recordings of the nervous system’s electrical response to the stimulation of specific sensory pathways (., visual, auditory, general sensory). In tests of evoked potentials, a person’s recorded responses are displayed on an oscilloscope and analyzed on a computer that allows comparison with normal response times. Demyelination results in a slowing of response time. EPs can demonstrate lesions along specific nerve pathways whether or not the lesions are producing symptoms, thus making this test useful in confirming the diagnosis of MS. Visual evoked potentials are considered the most useful in MS.
