Engelhard Arzneimittel

Products for Respiratory tract diseases

Did you know that 10,000 litres of air flow through your airways each day? The nose, oral cavity, windpipe, bronchi and lungs form the respiratory organs of the body. They transport essential oxygen from the air into our body and expel used air containing carbon dioxide back out. If the airways come under attack, Engelhard Arzneimittel’s versatile therapeutics can lend a hand.

The air is warmed in the nose, moistened and filtered through its tiny hairs at the entrance. Side effects of certain medicines, heated and air-conditioned rooms, dust or other irritants can cause the mucous membrane of the nose to dry out. The crusts and scabs resulting from this dryness inside the nose are not only annoying, but can also be very painful. Furthermore, a dry nose can create a higher risk of infection. 

Nisita® Nasal Ointment and Nasal Spray help to moisten dried out mucous membranes of the nose or those under attack. 

The chlorhexidine products help to combat inflammation of the gums and the mucous membrane of the mouth caused by bacteria.

The bronchi can also be attacked by cold viruses. Colds often involve coughing. The viruses attack the mucous membrane of the bronchi, multiply and cause inflammation. Particularly during the chilly and wet flu season, our immune system can be too weak to be able to fight off the viruses. Prospan® has a threefold effect on coughs by loosening them and mucus and also relieving the urge to cough. 

Another tried and tested preparation for relieving the urge to cough and hoarseness is Iceland moss: the ingredients contained in the isla® preparations coat the mucous membrane in the throat and pharynx like balsam and protect them from further attacks.

A sore throat often starts during a cold, but can also be the result of putting the voice under too much strain or from irritation of the airways. Trachilid® Sore Throat Lozenges help the painful redness and swelling in the throat that come with a sore throat: the active ingredient they contain induces rapid and long-lasting pain relief. Citramin® Throat Lozenges relieve minor cases of inflammation of the mucous membranes in the mouth or throat: they promote wound healing, relieve pain and reduce germ formation.
