What Is Asthma?
Asthma is a common respiratory disorder, also known as severe chronic respiratory disorder. People who are asthmatic will occasionally experience a constriction in their respiratory tubes, which causes wheezing, tightness in the chest, breathlessness and nocturnal coughing.
Asthma is one of those diseases whose exact reason is not known to medical science yet, and that’s the reason why a specific cure is not yet known. It occurs in both children and adults, and most children who develop this condition continue to have it in adulthood too. Asthma is highly common, with 25 million people in the US itself suffering from it. Out of these, there are about 7 million child sufferers who are below the age of 12 years. It is known to be hereditary.
This is now termed as a chronic disease, which means it lasts a lifetime. However, with proper care and treatment, it can easily be controlled so that it does not interfere with routine activities.
How Does Asthma Occur?
Our respiratory system begins from the nose and passes onto the pharynx, the trachea, the bronchi and the lungs. Except the lungs, the others are all tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs. When asthma occurs, these airways get inflamed. Due to this inflammation, the tubes get swollen, which restricts the passage of air. This is why breathing becomes difficult, which might cause the person to wheeze or pant while taking in air.
Asthma is aggravated by the following conditions:-
- The muscles around the respiratory tubes might exert more pressure on them,
- The inflammation can increase if left untreated, or
- The inner lining of the airways might begin producing more mucus.
What Are the Symptoms of Asthma?
Asthma shows mild and severe symptoms.
Mild symptoms include shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, intermittent coughing, wheezing when breathing, throat issues during common cold, etc.
Severe symptoms include increased noises during breathing, extreme difficulty in breathing, continued constricted feeling in the chest, etc.
What Are Some Things to Take Care of against Asthma?
Asthma is known to be a hereditary condition. If someone in your family has it, chances are that it will pass on to you as well.
If there is such a situation, then you must keep away from the following risk factors:-
- Being overweight or obese
- Smoking (even secondhand smoking)
- Any strong odors such as perfumes and deodorants
- Chemicals such as those used in cosmetics.
Certain foods can also exacerbate asthma. However, the food asthmatic triggers differ from person to person. If you find out that a particular food is not working for you, you must avoid it.
Know about the Common Asthma Triggers
Every type of asthma is exacerbated by a few agents, which are called asthmatic triggers. Though they are different for every individual, the following are the allergens and other things that must be looked out for.
- Common Allergens – Allergens are the substances that can trigger an undesirable physical reaction in you. Some of the common allergens are dust, chalk powder, animal dander, lint, molds, mites, droppings of insects such as cockroaches, pollen, etc.
- Irritants – Certain substances, especially those that have strong odors and contain harsh chemicals might irritate your system and this can trigger an asthmatic attack. Some of the common irritants are perfumes and fragrances, cologne, aftershave, cigarette smoke, pollutants in the air, room fresheners and cleaning agents, etc.
- Stress – Stress has been identified to be a very common asthma-inducing factor. People who are constantly stressed are deprived of a healthy blood circulation in their respiratory system. This can lead to an asthmatic attack as well.
- Weather – Some weather conditions can induce an asthma attack in people. It has been seen that there are higher cases reported when the temperature falls down. During humid conditions, such as in the season of rainfall, there are more cases of asthma attacks. Such asthma conditions are prevalent in the mornings, and they subside as the day wears on.
Can Asthmatic Patients Carry on with Their Daily Life?
The answer is a definite ‘yes’. There are only minor modifications needed for an asthmatic patient to lead a normal life.
- Make sure that the food does not contain anything that might cause an allergic reaction.
- Keep away from extreme cold and humid conditions.
- Keep the surroundings clean. Stay away from strong odors and fragrances.
- Do light exercise. However, you must ask your doctor about what kinds of exercises you can do. Heavy exercises can increase the chances of having an attack.
- If any physical activity brings about a constricted feeling in your chest, avoid it.
- Avoid congested places.
- Avoid closed places.
- Perhaps, you could relocate to a place where you get more open air and sunshine.
How Is Asthma Treated?
No two asthmatic patients are treated alike. Since the triggers are different, the treatments are different too. After a thorough analysis of the patient’s condition, specific treatment modes are prescribed.
In extreme cases, inhalers might be prescribed as well. These pump air directly into the respiratory tube and prevent the chances of an attack.
Families that have an asthmatic patient must ensure that there are no asthmatic triggers in the surroundings of the affected person. Their symptoms should be closely monitored. There are usually some advance signs such as constriction in the chest or heavy breathing. Such factors must be taken into consideration. When a person has an asthma attack or is vulnerable to have one, they should not be left alone without supervision under any condition.
There are long-term medications available. By using these, asthma can be completely controlled.
