Instructions to Treat Asthma Triggered by Cold Weather. How Does Cold Weather Affect Asthma?. When you have asthma, your aviation routes, or bronchial tubes, swell up and wind up plainly aroused in light of specific triggers. Swollen aviation routes are smaller and can't take in as much air. That is the reason individuals with asthma regularly experience difficulty recovering. Winter is a particularly hard time for individuals with asthma. A recent report from China that was distributed in PLoS One discovered healing facility affirmations for asthma expanded amid the winter months. In cool atmospheres, for example, Lapland, up to 82 percent of individuals with asthma encounter shortness of breath when they practice in frosty climate. When you work out, your body needs more oxygen, so your breathing paces up. Regularly, you'll inhale through your mouth to take in more air. While your nose has veins that warm and humidify the air before it achieves your lungs, air that movements specifically through your mouth stays icy and dry. This is only one way that practicing outside in frosty climate improves your probability of having an asthma . For what reason Does Cold Air Affect Asthma Symptoms?. Chilly air is no picnic for asthma side effects for a few reasons: Chilly air is dry. Your aviation routes are fixed with a thin layer of liquid. When you take in dry air, that liquid dissipates speedier than it can be supplanted. Dry aviation routes wind up plainly chafed and swollen, which compounds asthma manifestations. Cool air likewise causes your aviation routes to create a substance called histamine, which is a similar synthetic your body makes amid a hypersensitivity assault. Histamine triggers wheezing and other asthma side effects. Chilly expands bodily fluid.: Your aviation routes are fixed with a layer of defensive bodily fluid, which helps evacuate undesirable particles. In chilly climate, your body creates more bodily fluid, yet it's thicker and stickier than ordinary. The additional bodily fluid makes you more inclined to get a bug or other disease. What Precautions Should People with Asthma Take?. Ensure your asthma is under control before winter arrives. See your specialist to build up an asthma activity design, and after that take the drugs your specialist endorsed. You may take drug each day or exactly when you require it. Long haul controller medications are drugs you take each day to deal with your asthma side effects. They incorporate breathed in corticosteroids, long-acting beta-agonists, and leukotriene modifiers. Snappy help meds are meds that you just take when you require them, for example, before practicing neglected. Short-acting bronchodilators and anticholinergics are cases of these medications. The most effective method to Avoid Asthma Attacks neglected: To keep away from asthma assaults, endeavor to stay inside when the temperature plunges low, particularly if it's beneath 10°F. On the off chance that you do need to go outside, cover your nose and mouth with a scarf to warm the air before you inhale it in. Here are a couple of different tips: *Drink additional liquids in the winter. This can keep the bodily fluid in your lungs more slender and simpler for your body to expel. *Try to keep away from any individual who gives off an impression of being debilitated. *Get your influenza antibody right on time in the fall. *Vacuum and tidy your home regularly to expel indoor allergens. *Wash your sheets and covers each week in high temp water to dispose of clean bugs. To anticipate asthma assaults when you practice outside in chilly climate: *Use your inhaler 15 to 30 minutes before you exercise to open up your aviation routes so you can inhale less demanding. *Carry an inhaler with you on the off chance that you have an asthma assault. *Warm up for no less than 10 to 15 minutes before you work out. *Wear a veil or scarf over your face to warm the air you take in. What Else Can Cause an Attack?. Chilly is only one of numerous asthma triggers. Different things that can set off your indications include: *tobacco smoke. *strong aromas.

Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways. Asthma causes recurring periods of wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing. Asthma tends to trigger during winter months. The 2 main reasons why winters is a bad time for asthmatics is because: The air is cold and dry People are more susceptible to sinus and upper respiratory infections, either of which can trigger or worsen asthma attacks. Don’t give up yet. Here are 3 things that are guaranteed to help you keep things under control: Avoid bonfires: There we said it. As ideal and it sounds, sitting next to burning wood can be worse than smoking! Keep your mouth closed: That’s right, keep it shut! Breathe in through your nose instead, because it both filters and warms up air for your lungs. Exercise indoors: On days that are more chilly than usual, go to the gym instead of exercising outside. The temperature and the humidity in the gym are less likely to cause a problem. Apart from this, making small and simple changes can help limit your asthma symptoms. There are a number of things you can do — from getting rid of dust mites and mold to keeping pets out of your bedroom. Sipping on hot liquids, keeping indoor plants and taking steam regularly can keep your asthma under control. These tips may feel like a lot of work, but they’ll get you through winters without much suffering. Worth it!

I tried the Wim Hof Breathing & Cold Therapy Method for 7 Days. The results are pretty profound, but not in the way I expected it. The method is pretty intense and extreme. Will I continue doing this? Is it safe? Is this just a fad or is this a proven method? The Wim Hof Method includes breathing exercises, cold therapy, some strength building exercises (push ups) and a special stretching technique. It's a widely followed technique and the popularity is growing. My interest in this technique started when I was fed up with winter and wanted to see what my body was capable of. I'm an Australian living in Iceland and I don't want to be afraid of the cold. And so my journey of discovery has begun. Warning: This is a VERY dangerous technique if not followed properly. Never do the breathing exercises whilst standing up, driving or underwater. It can result in you passing out and there have been deaths linked to people incorrectly trying this method. ---------------------------------------------------- Follow me on my social channels to see the progress: INSTAGRAM: http://instagram.com/sorelleamore TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/sorelleamore FACEBOOK: http://facebook.com/sorelleamore WEBSITE: http://www.sorelleamore.com ---------------------------------------------------- Today's video is the beginning of a new 'Sorelle Tries' series.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition where the airways in the lungs are inflamed and narrowed causing breathlessness, wheezing, chest tightness and coughing. Symptoms come as recurrent episodes known as asthmatic attacks most commonly at night or early in the morning. Pathology of asthma: The lungs contain millions of air tubes or airways, called bronchi and bronchioles, which bring air in and out of the body. The airways have a layer of smooth muscle in their wall which enables them to constrict or dilate. In people suffering from asthma these airways are inflamed, narrowed and become more sensitive to certain substances. Asthmatic attack, or exacerbation, happens when the airways react to these substances. During an attack, the smooth muscle contracts, squeezing the airways, making them even narrower; mucus secretion is also increased which further obstructs the airways. Asthma is most commonly considered as an inflammatory response disease where the body’s immune system over-reacts to certain environmental agents. Causes of asthma are complex and not fully understood but likely involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Family history is a known risk factor for asthma. There are at least over twenty genes associated with asthma of which many are involved in the immune system. Triggers are factors that initiate the attack. Common triggers include: - allergens, such as pollen, animal fur, pet dander, sulfites in preserved food.. - irritants, such as cigarette smoke, industrial chemicals, dust, household chemicals,.. - medications, such as aspirin, beta blockers,.. - physical activities, exercises. There is no cure for asthma. The most effective way to manage symptoms is to identify the triggers of asthmatic attacks and avoid them. There are two main classes of medication: - Bronchodilators - substances that dilate bronchi and bronchioles - are used as short-term relief of symptoms. - Inflammation moderators such as corticosteroids are taken as long-term treatments. Asthma inhalers are used to deliver the medication to the lungs. A number of conditions tend to occur more frequently in people with asthma and should be taken into account when treating asthma: - Allergies, such as eczema and hay fever. These individuals are considered hyper-allergic – they have high tendency to develop allergic reactions. The combination of these conditions is known as atopy or atopic syndrome. Immunotherapy may be recommended for this group of patients. - Gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD - a condition in which stomach acid backs up and damages the mucosal lining of the esophagus. GERD may worsen asthma symptoms and medications for asthma often worsen GERD symptoms. Treating GERD usually improves asthma and must be included in an asthma treatment plan. - Obstructive sleep apnea or OSA – obstruction of the airway at the throat level during sleep. Asthmatic patients are at higher risks of developing OSA. The mechanism of this association is largely unknown. - Sinusitis: inflammation of paranasal sinuses. Sinusitis commonly worsens asthma symptoms and makes treatments less effective.

Asthma is a disease that occurs due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. It happens when there is an obstruction in the flow of air in the lungs. This makes breathing difficult and leads to coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. The common asthma allergens are mold, dust mites, pollen and other allergens. It can also be due to cold air, air pollution, smoke and strong fragrances. There is no cure for asthma, so a proper treatment is required to control the disease by identifying and limiting the exposure to triggers. There are several things that you can do to prevent an asthma attack. Here are a few tips to prevent asthma attacks, have a look. 1. Avoid Humidity Air quality is important to prevent asthma attacks. Extremely hot, poor air quality and humid weather can trigger symptoms for many people. This could worsen the condition, so it's necessary that you use an air conditioner to lower indoor humidity. You can also keep your windows closed and avoid living in a damp climate. If the asthma symptoms are worse, you could move to a location where you can enjoy the fresh air. 2. Prevent Mold And Mildew Mold and mildew are allergens that can cause asthma symptoms. Mold grows in shower curtains, tubs, basins, tiles and bath items. Make sure that you are away from damp places in your kitchen, and bathroom. It is best that you regularly clean the damp areas in the bathroom and kitchen and around the house. If you have an indoor plant, make sure you do not over-water them to prevent mold. 3. Limit The Dust Exposure Dust is one of the most common asthma triggers because it contains tiny particles of pollen, fiber from clothing, mold, and detergents. Dust mites are another allergen that causes asthma, that lives on pillows, mattresses, furniture, etc. Clean the carpets and heavy drapes in your bedroom, wash all bedding in hot water, vacuum your house twice a week to prevent asthma attacks. 4. Say No To Smoke Smoke can irritate your lungs, especially when you are an asthma person. Smoke can trigger asthma attacks and you must avoid people nearby who smoke regularly. Smoke causes coughing and wheezing, which becomes worse. Make sure you don't allow others to smoke near you, avoid public places that permit smoking, also your kitchen should have an exhaust fan that can remove smoke while you are cooking. 5. Stay Away From Pets Pets can trigger an asthma attack. Do you know how? Because their hair, fur, feathers, and saliva are common causes of asthma. It is essential that you keep pets away from your bedroom, not allowing pets on the furniture are some tips that you can prevent an asthma attack. 6. Avoid Stress When people are under stress, their breathing becomes rapid. This causes restrictions in the airways and can lead to an asthma attack. Stress can weaken your immune system, making you vulnerable to asthma attacks. It is important that you practice deep-breathing exercises to calm yourself, do meditation and yoga daily, have fun with your family and friends to avoid stress. 7. Exercising There are many people who suffer from asthma attacks when they exercise. Vigorous and prolonged exercises can trigger asthma, so it is important that you don't perform exercises that put a stress on your heart and lungs. Try doing yoga, brisk walking, gentle biking, swimming, weight training workouts, etc. However, consult a doctor before you start doing any kind of an exercise. 8. Avoid Getting Sick Often Respiratory illnesses like cold, flu or sinus infections are among the most common causes of asthma symptoms. Heartburn can also cause damage to the airways that lead to the lungs and worsen asthma symptoms. It is necessary that you take a good care of yourself during the cold and flu season. 9. Dietary Changes People with asthma should maintain a proper diet. A diet rich in vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, flavonoids, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, and selenium is good for people suffering from asthma. Consume plenty of organic fruits and vegetables, omega-3 fatty acids like flax seeds, salmon, and tuna. Avoid eating processed and packaged foods and also dairy products. 10. Humidifiers Humidifiers increase the moisture level in the air by releasing water vapor and this works for a few people to ease their symptoms. If there is too much moisture in the air, it can develop dust mite growth. It is recommended that the humidity level should be between 30 and 45 percent to avoid this problem.

Cincinnati (WKRC) - Another warning as the cold temperatures continue in the Tri-State area: Healthcare providers say the air can pose an extra danger to your lungs and lead to breathing problems. It's bad enough that we are forced indoors with the colder temperatures. Here in the tristate, that's leading to the rapid spread of viruses and respiratory infections, which can lead to breathing problems for a lot of people. "You can try and protect yourself, washing your hands well, not coughing on other people if you are ill, and avoiding those people who are currently ill with a respiratory illness," said Dr. Stephen Blatt. But for those who already have asthma or chronic lung conditions, such as COD, the cold can make breathing complications even worse. A report released by the Cleveland Clinic today says the cold air is an irritant and those who have these health problems need to be especially vigilant about staying ahead of symptoms. That means not waiting until you can't breathe to take medications or use inhalers, staying on your medication schedule so airways stay open and you don't chase bad breathing. It's also important if you have chronic lung problems that you limit time outdoors and cover your nose and mouth for protection when you do need to go outside. There are fast-acting medications now to open airways. If you have those already, take them with you when you are in and out of the cold these days If the breathing problems don't ease, make sure you seek proper medical attention.

Step 1: Recognize the symptoms Recognize asthma symptoms, which include wheezing, breathing problems that become worse after physical activity, coughing fits, especially at night or when lying down, and colds that last more than ten days. Tip A family history of asthma increases your chances of having the disease. Step 2: See a doctor If you suspect you have asthma, have a medical doctor evaluate your condition. You may benefit from daily medication to prevent attacks. You may also need to carry a quick-reliever, like an inhaler, in case an attack occurs. Tip Contrary to what some people think, cough medicine doesn't relieve asthma symptoms. Step 3: Know the warning signs Learn to recognize the warning signs of an attack so you can treat it before it becomes severe. Common symptoms include chest tightness, coughing, spitting up phlegm, wheezing, and a whistling noise when you breathe. Tip An asthma attack causes airways to swell and become inflamed and the muscles around the airways to contract, causing your breathing tubes to narrow. Step 4: Avoid triggers Try to avoid or limit your exposure to things that spark attacks. Common triggers include pollen, mold, dust, animals, tobacco smoke, smog, strenuous exercise, certain cleaning products, perfume, cold air, and aspirin and other pain relievers. Tip To reduce contact with dust mites, use mattress and pillow covers, don't use down bedding, and don't sleep with stuffed animals on your bed. Step 5: Monitor your attacks Get a peak-flow meter, a device that measures airflow from the lungs. Blow into the meter when you're not having an attack to determine your "personal best" reading. You can compare the number against future measurements, helping to confirm when an attack may be imminent and determine if your medicine is working. Step 6: Know when to get help Go to the emergency room if you can't speak more than short phrases, are straining to breathe, or if your peak-flow reading is less than 50 percent of your personal best. Did You Know? About 20 percent of summer Olympics athletes have asthma, according to research.

ASTHMA OVERVIEW Asthma is a chronic disease involving the airways in the lungs. These airways, or bronchial tubes, allow air to come in and out of the lungs. If you have asthma your airways are always inflamed. They become even more swollen and the muscles around the airways can tighten when something triggers your symptoms. This makes it difficult for air to move in and out of the lungs, causing symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and/or chest tightness. For many asthma sufferers, timing of these symptoms is closely related to physical activity. And, some otherwise healthy people can develop asthma symptoms only when exercising. This is called exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB), or exercise-induced asthma (EIA). Staying active is an important way to stay healthy, so asthma shouldn't keep you on the sidelines. Your physician can develop a management plan to keep your symptoms under control before, during and after physical activity. People with a family history of allergies or asthma are more prone to developing asthma. Many people with asthma also have allergies. This is called allergic asthma. Occupational asthma is caused by inhaling fumes, gases, dust or other potentially harmful substances while on the job. Childhood asthma impacts millions of children and their families. In fact, the majority of children who develop asthma do so before the age of five. There is no cure for asthma, but once it is properly diagnosed and a treatment plan is in place you will be able to manage your condition, and your quality of life will improve. An allergist / immunologist is the best qualified physician in diagnosing and treating asthma. With the help of your allergist, you can take control of your condition and participate in normal activities. ASTHMA SYMPTOMS & DIAGNOSIS Asthma Symptoms According to the leading experts in asthma, the symptoms of asthma and best treatment for you or your child may be quite different than for someone else with asthma. The most common symptom is wheezing. This is a scratchy or whistling sound when you breathe. Other symptoms include: • Shortness of breath • Chest tightness or pain • Chronic coughing • Trouble sleeping due to coughing or wheezing Asthma symptoms, also called asthma flare-ups or asthma attacks, are often caused by allergies and exposure to allergens such as pet dander, dust mites, pollen or mold. Non-allergic triggers include smoke, pollution or cold air or changes in weather. Asthma symptoms may be worse during exercise, when you have a cold or during times of high stress. Children with asthma may show the same symptoms as adults with asthma: coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. In some children chronic cough may be the only symptom. If your child has one or more of these common symptoms, make an appointment with an allergist / immunologist: • Coughing that is constant or that is made worse by viral infections, happens while your child is asleep, or is triggered by exercise and cold air • Wheezing or whistling sound when your child exhales • Shortness of breath or rapid breathing, which may be associated with exercise • Chest tightness (a young child may say that his chest “hurts” or “feels funny”) • Fatigue (your child may slow down or stop playing) • Problems feeding or grunting during feeding (infants) • Avoiding sports or social activities • Problems sleeping due to coughing or difficulty breathing Patterns in asthma symptoms are important and can help your doctor make a diagnosis. Pay attention to when symptoms occur: • At night or early morning • During or after exercise • During certain seasons • After laughing or crying • When exposed to common asthma triggers Asthma Diagnosis An allergist diagnoses asthma by taking a thorough medical history and performing breathing tests to measure how well your lungs work. One of these tests is called spirometry. You will take a deep breath and blow into a sensor to measure the amount of air your lungs can hold and the speed of the air you inhale or exhale. This test diagnoses asthma severity and measures how well treatment is working. Many people with asthma also have allergies, so your doctor may perform allergy testing. Treating the underlying allergic triggers for your asthma will help you avoid asthma symptoms. ASTHMA TREATMENT & MANAGEMENT There is no cure for asthma, but symptoms can be controlled with effective asthma treatment and management. This involves taking your medications as directed and learning to avoid triggers that cause your asthma symptoms. Your allergist will prescribe the best medications for your condition and provide you with specific instructions for using them. Controller medications are taken daily and include inhaled corticosteroids (fluticasone (Flovent Diskus, Flovent HFA), budesonide (Pulmicort Flexhaler), mometasone (Asmanex), ciclesonide (Alvesco), flunisolide (Aerobid), beclomethasone (Qvar) and others).

Stop/reduce those asthmatic attacks with the right nutrition. UNDERSTANDING ASTHMA Asthma is a condition in which the airways temporarily narrow in response to a certain stimuli that usually do not affect the airways in normal lungs. It is characterized by recurrent attacks of wheezing, coughing and shortness of breath that can range from mild to life-threatening. During such attacks, the small airways in the lungs suddenly become clogged with mucus and other secretions. If not cleared, the blockage can lead to suffocation. Studies have shown that the major underlying cause of asthma is a chronic inflammation and thickening of the bronchial tubes and nasal passages leading to dramatic muscle spasms, constriction of air passages and consequent breathing difficulties. Asthma patients who depend on inhalers that contain steroids may have the lung walls coated with this drug/chemical that may cause further breathing/respiratory problems over a period of time. It is a vicious cycle but want that needs to be broken. Making eating clean as a lifestyle should be one of the first steps to prevent further asthma attacks. Eating/juicing plenty of healing fruits and vegetables will help reduce/eliminate the underlying inflammation of air passages, dilate the air passages, thin down mucus in the lungs, and reduce food allergy reactions that trigger asthma attacks. SYMPTOMS OF ASTHMA Although asthma can develop at any age, it usually begins in childhood, in the first five years of their life. Some children continue to have asthma into their adult years, in others it resolves. When a sufferer comes in contact with trigger matters, the airways narrow and the sufferer develops difficulty in breathing, accompanied by wheezing. Not all asthma attacks produce wheezing. Mild asthma in very young children, may result only in a cough. In older children, they may tend to cough only when exercising or exposed to cold air. In a severe attack, breathing becomes visibly difficult, wheezing becomes louder as the sufferer breathes faster and with greater effort, gasping for breath.

ஆஸ்துமா ஒரு Parnayam யோகா yoga therapy is known to cure asthma and not just manage it. In particular, it lessens the allergic reaction in your lungs. Some benefits of Yoga for Asthma patients are: You are able to control your breathing much better as breathing very fast is one of the major problems of an asthma patient. Although you are breathing fast, the oxygen is not being absorbed in your body. Practicing slow breathing would not only improve your breathing but also allow you to control it better. You do not breathe quickly even if you are not inhaling enough air. Asthma patients tend to hold their breath for long in an attempt to get more oxygen out of the air that they have inhaled. This can aggravate the condition as this puts more pressure on your internal organs. You are able to take breathe from the diaphragm which helps you in getting used to taking deep and more relaxed breaths. The severity of an asthma attack, if and when it happens, can be significantly reduced if you have been practicing Yoga. Although one should never make the mistake of ignoring asthma medication, Yoga can help to calm and de-stress your body and prevent the severe impact of an asthma trigger. Moreover, if you get an asthma attack, the practice of slow breathing would help you survive the complication posed by constricted airways much better. A functional advantage of yoga is having control over your nervous reflexes. This facilitates you to lessen the excessive movement of the parasympathetic nerves. Benefits of yoga and its asanas can be varied. They not only help in calming down the stressed muscles in your chest, so that you can breathe more effortlessly but they also discharge the energy blocks. Overturned asanas also deplete mucus from your lungs. Meditation aids in calming you and complements your mind and your body. Pranayama also transports numerous benefits. Pranayama brings deeper advantages than the simple involuntary result of exercising the lungs. Asthma makes the patients hold too much air in the lungs and also breathe quickly. Both these complications put undue pressure on the heart and lungs. In order to control this, you should practice the Bhrastika Pranayama, which is deep breathing but time yourself to 12 or lesser breaths a minute. Including these breathing exercises in your daily life, you would surely lessen the strains on your heart and lungs. Subscribe link http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=yogatutorials

Asthma is a respiratory condition caused by spasm of the bronchi of the lungs, resulting in difficulty breathing. According to Asthma Australia, one in nine people suffer from asthma, ranging from childhood through to adults. It is a form of hypersensitivity, like an allergy but in the airways. Certain triggers can cause the airways to swell and produce mucus contributing to narrowing the passageway for air. Asthmatic triggers include; • Exercise • Breathing in cold air • Dust • Pollen • Animal fur like cats • Some food groups like dairy • Tobacco smoke When you experience an asthmatic episode, it may come on slowly (hours to weeks) or very suddenly (minutes). In a severe episode, you will experience an asthma attack which requires medical attention immediately. And here we are ready to help you at Optimum Wellbeing Osteopath clinic near the Gold Coast Or visit our official site below: https://optimumwellbeing.com.au/osteopathy/ How Can Osteopathy Help with Asthma? Osteopathically we can help alleviate the musculoskeletal symptoms by relieving the tightness around the neck and increasing the movement between the back and ribs. We also work on improving the diaphragm muscles function as well as calming down the nervous system to de-stress the body following an episode. An Osteopath will also focus on deep breathing, encouraging patients to breathe using their diaphragm and lower ribs as opposed to the neck muscles and upper ribs. This technique is called abdominal breathing and should be a natural resting state of breathing for all. Source: https://optimumwellbeing.com.au/asthma_relief/

ASTHMA Symptoms, Causes & Treatments OVERVIEW Asthma is a chronic disease that affects the airways of the lungs. During normal breathing, the bands of muscle that surround the airways are relaxed and air moves freely. During an asthma episode or "attack," there are three main changes that stop air from moving easily through the airways: The bands of muscle that surround the airways tighten and make the airways narrow. This tightening is called bronchospasm. The lining of the airways becomes swollen or inflamed. The cells that line the airways produce more mucus, which is thicker than normal and clogs the airways. These three factors - bronchospasm, inflammation, and mucus production - cause symptoms such as difficulty breathing, wheezing, and coughing. SYMPTOMS Anemia signs and symptoms vary depending on the cause of your anemia. They may include: • Fatigue. • Weakness. • Pale or yellowish skin. • Irregular heartbeats. • Shortness of breath. • Dizziness or lightheadedness. • Chest pain. • Cold hands and feet. • Headache. At first anemia can be so mild that it goes unnoticed. But symptoms worsen as anemia worsens. CAUSES The airways in a person with asthma are very sensitive and react to many things, or "triggers." Contact with these triggers causes asthma symptoms. One of the most important parts of asthma control is to identify your triggers and then avoid them when possible. The only trigger you do not want to avoid is exercise. Pre-treatment with medicines before exercise can allow you to stay active yet avoid asthma symptoms. Common asthma triggers include: • Infections (colds, viruses, flu, sinus infections). • Exercise. • Weather (changes in temperature and/or humidity, cold air). • Tobacco smoke. • Allergens (dust mites, pollens, pets, mold spores, cockroaches, and sometimes foods). • Irritants (strong odors from cleaning products, perfume, wood smoke, air pollution). • Strong emotions such as crying or laughing hard. • Some medications. TREATMENTS Asthma symptoms are not the same for everyone. They can even change from episode to episode in the same person. Also, you may have only one symptom of asthma, such as cough, but another person may have all the symptoms of asthma. It is important to know all the symptoms of asthma and to be aware that your asthma can present in any of these ways at any time. The most common symptoms include: • Coughing, especially at night • Shortness of breath • Wheezing • Chest tightness, pain, or pressure

What is exactly Asthma? Asthma is an inflammatory disorder of the airways, which causes attacks of wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing.Causes, incidence, and risk factors Asthma is caused by inflammation in the airways. When an asthma attack occurs, the muscles surrounding the airways become tight and the lining of the air passages swells. This reduces the amount of air that can pass by. In sensitive people, asthma symptoms can be triggered by breathing in allergy-causing substances (called allergens or triggers). Common asthma triggers include: 1| Animals (pet hair or dander) 2| Dust 3| Changes in weather (most often cold weather) 4| Chemicals in the air or in food 5| Exercise 6| Mold 7| Pollen 8| Respiratory infections, such as the common cold 9| Strong emotions (stress) 10| Tobacco smoke Symptoms Most people with asthma have attacks separated by symptom-free periods. Some people have long-term shortness of breath with episodes of increased shortness of breath. Either wheezing or a cough may be the main symptom.Asthma attacks can last for minutes to days, and can become dangerous if the airflow is severely restricted. Symptoms include: 1| Cough with or without sputum (phlegm) production. 2| Pulling in of the skin between the ribs when breathing (intercostal retractions). 3|Shortness of breath that gets worse with exercise or activity 4|Wheezing, which: Emergency symptoms: Bluish color to the lips and face Decreased level of alertness, such as severe drowsiness or confusion, during an asthma attack Extreme difficulty breathing Rapid pulse Severe anxiety due to shortness of breath Sweating Other symptoms that may occur with this disease: 1| Abnormal breathing pattern --breathing out takes more than twice as long as breathing in. 2| Breathing temporarily stops. 3| Chest pain. 4| Nasal flaring. 5| Tightness in the chest. Go to the emergency room if: 1| You develop drowsiness or confusion. 2| You have severe shortness of breath at rest. 3| Your peak flow measurement is less than 50% of your personal best. 4| You have severe chest pain. Prevention 1| You can reduce asthma symptoms by avoiding known triggers and substances that irritate the airways. 2| Cover bedding with "allergy-proof" casings to reduce exposure to dust mites. 3| Remove carpets from bedrooms and vacuum regularly. 4| Use only unscented detergents and cleaning materials in the home. 5| Keep humidity levels low and fix leaks to reduce the growth of organisms such as mold. 6| Keep the house clean and keep food in containers and out of bedrooms -- this helps reduce the possibility of cockroaches, which can trigger asthma attacks in some people. 7| If a person is allergic to an animal that cannot be removed from the home, the animal should be kept out of the bedroom. Place filtering material over the heating outlets to trap animal dander. 8| Eliminate tobacco smoke from the home. This is the single most important thing a family can do to help a child with asthma. Smoking outside the house is not enough. Family members and visitors who smoke outside carry smoke residue inside on their clothes and hair -- this can trigger asthma symptoms. 9| Persons with asthma should also avoid air pollution, industrial dusts, and other irritating fumes as much as possible.

COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) The Symptoms One of the main challenges in treating COPD is getting it diagnosed at an early stage. This is because of its gradually worsening nature, which causes it to remain hidden until the lungs have been damaged significantly. In other words, the occurrence of any symptoms may indicate that the disease has already reached an advanced stage. So then, the symptoms which do occur, may include: Shortness of breath, which worsens with activity such as exercising or moving around A chronic cough that won't go away; a classic symptom of COPD. Most often, the cough is productive, thus produces phlegm Chest infections may be common, especially during winters Chest tightness may also be a common COPD sign Read more at The Causes This condition is the result of long-term smoking, and exposure to irritants that get into the system through air. Speaking of smoking, more often than not, it comes out as the most common cause of COPD. If 10 people with this disease are considered, then it is most likely for 9 of them to have been or are, long-term smokers. The chemicals in tobacco smoke damage the lining of the airways in the lungs, thus making them inflamed. Treatment As I have already cited above, no cure exists for COPD, but treatment does make the symptoms more bearable, and the condition to slow down in its progress. Asthma The Symptoms Symptoms of asthma are not frequent. Some people may have mild symptoms, while some, severe. Also, as it has been reported by most patients, during the time between the attacks, they experience no trouble in their breathing. More often than not, people experience an asthma attack while exercising, or when exposed to allergens or other triggers. The common symptoms may include: Breathing difficulty Chest tightness Wheezing Coughing, more at night and early morning Another classic symptom of asthma is coughing or wheezing that worsens by infections such as cold or flu The Causes Unlike in COPD, doctors aren't sure what causes asthma. But they assume that environmental factors in conjunction with certain genetic factors may have a major contribution in the development of this respiratory problem in people. Although not specific causes, scientists have been able to determine the triggering factors which can set off an asthma attack. Allergens like dust, pollen, dander, dust mites, mold, etc., can easily trigger an asthma attack, and so can a food allergy Common cold and other respiratory infections commonly trigger asthma symptoms Psychological triggers such as strong emotions and stress may also do the same Breathing in cold air, and having diseases such as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) can make a person susceptible to have an asthma attack Other risk factors may include being born prematurely, having a family history of asthma, and getting exposed to air pollutants and irritants.
