From Latin vegetatio, the term vegetation is used to name the vegetable group that exist in a certain geographical space. It may be the flora own ground (the native vegetation ) or of imported species.
The notion of vegetation makes no mention of any specific taxon. That is, the vegetation can be composed of plants of different characteristics and in very varied geographical situations.
The concept allows naming from virgin forests to wild bush assemblies or gardens designed by a landscaper. For example: “The vegetation of this province is lush”, “I want to go on vacation to a place where there is a lot of vegetation and animals”, "Pollution makes the vegetation of these types of cities increasingly scarce".
It is important to keep in mind that vegetation is not only important from the point of view of landscape or visual appeal, but is vital for the generation of oxygen , the conservation of soils and the so-called carbon cycle.
There are different types of vegetation depending on the environment in which it is found. The aquatic vegetation It is one that adapts to water or environments with a high level of humidity. These plants live in ponds, swamps, deltas or lagoons, either completely submerged or with floating leaves.
Other types of vegetation are the gypsophilic vegetation (which appears in the gypsum terrain) and the halophilic vegetation (typical of soils with high salt index).
Vegetations in adenoids
They are called vegetations in the adenoids and other glands of the lymphatic system They have the purpose of protecting the organism from childhood infections and are located in the back of the nose, between what is commonly known as bell and palate. The adenoid vegetation , is a medical concept that refers to the excessive development of the tonsils and lymphatic follicles.
As the child grows these glands increase in size (up to four years of age); Then their size begins to decrease until they disappear completely. When an infection occurs in the vegetations, that is to say that they become inflamed, the respiratory and auditory pathways; This is due to its location.
The main symptoms when the vegetation is inflamed are obstruction of the nostrils that in some cases leads to sinusitis, voice taken, snoring and abundant mucus. It can also be accompanied by severe ear aches and even suppuration.
The consequences of this infection can be deformations on the palate which makes difficult what causes complications in the teething process (because the creature can't breathe properly by the nose and begins to do it through the mouth), bad breath (because of breathing through the mouth), respiratory stops or obstructive apnea (because of the exaggerated increase of the tonsils), otitis (and if repeated over a period of prolonged time, it could cause perforation in the eardrum and other malformations).
By what is infection can be diagnosed it is necessary that the doctor palpate the children and perform an x-ray to let them know exactly what the problem is. Once the diagnosis is made, a treatment with a medication is recommended whose objective is to decrease until the vegetations are completely eliminated.
In some cases, the surgery to end this problem. This occurs when the obstruction of the nose is absolute, the patient He suffers from deep attacks of cold, regular suppuration in the ears or bronchitis. In such a case, it is strictly necessary that both the child and his family abide by the instructions of the surgeon so that the recovery is complete.
