This problem is caused due to inflammation in the airways. It is a chronic lung inflammatory disease. This problem causes long term breathing disorders. In this problem the airways are always inflamed and they become swollen and muscles around the airways get tightened causing difficulty for the air to move in and out of the lungs.
This problem cannot be cured, but can only be controlled. Treatment at an early stage can have fewer chances of attacks. Read on this article to know some effective tips to manage and cure asthma attacks naturally at home.
Causes of Asthma:
- Allergic reaction
- Breathing polluted air
- Exposure to tobacco or wood smoke
- Breathing in allergens
- Respiratory infection
- Emotional excitement or stress
- Chest tightness
- Difficulty speaking
There are various ways to measure the intensity of the attack or checking how severe the symptoms are. These include
|Spirometer||device used to measure the amount of air exhaled, the test is done before and after the intake of medication and is considered a good way to observe the function of the lungs|
|Peak flow meter||By doing this, we can check how forcefully one can breathe during the time of the attack. By this we can measure the intensity of the attack|
|Oximetry||in this a pulse oximeter is placed on the fingertip to measure the amount of oxygen in the blood stream
Asthma patients suffer from attacks and attacks are classified into six categories
- Allergic asthma (this asthma occurs due to various types of allergies)
- Asthma without allergies (this occurs due to improper functioning of the upper respiratory system)
- Aspirin Exacerbated Respiratory Disease (AERD) (this occurs due to intake of some aspirins. When people take aspirin, they develop sneezing, and a stuffy nose.
- Asthma due to exercise(excessive physical exercise leads of exertion causing difficulty in breathing, which give rise to coughing and chest tightness and improves when they stop the exertion
- Cough variant (This is caused due to dry hacking cough. It can occur at any time either at day or night and can affect both adults and children).
- Occupational asthma (This happens while doing some work usually due to some smoke or irritants such as chlorine. This is not related to any allergy. In this when the irritant is inhaled by the person at the same time he suffers from an attack).
This division is based upon the symptoms. And based upon the symptoms the medications are provided.
These medications are usually of two types:
- Maintenance medication (for long term control) They help to reduce the inflammation in the lungs that underlies asthma attacks. These are taken to keep the system stable regardless of whether you are having symptoms or not.
- Rescue medications (short-term control of asthma attack) These medications are mostly used while the patient suffers from that causes shortness of breath.
