Be Careful Some Asthma Cases Are Really Dangerous

Mar 10, 2008
The chronic disease that affects your airways is known as asthma. The tubes that bring air in and out of your lungs are known as airways. The inside walls of your airways are swollen or inflamed when you have asthma. Airways turn out to be damn sensitive due to inflammation.

Therefore, they often react in a strong way to the things that you are allergic to or find irking. They get narrower and less air flows through to your lung tissue at the time when airways give a reaction. This generates symptoms such as wheezing that is a whistling sound at the time when you breathe. Besides, coughing, chest tightness, and improper breathing, mostly in the night and early morning can also be the symptoms.

Muscles around the airways tighten up for the period of an asthma attack. This makes airways narrower, so less air flows through. And, then inflammation amplifies, thus making the airways more swollen and even narrower. More mucus than usual is produced in the airways which further narrows the airways. Thus, these changes make breathing harder for a person. Some asthma cases are worse than the regular ones. In these cases, the airways get so narrow or can close so much that not enough oxygen could reach out to the significant organs of the body. These conditions are very severe and there is a possibility that one could die. It is the case of medical emergency.

So, if one is going through asthma, he should immediately report it to the doctor. Also, one should be quite regular to the doctor. One should understand what things were the causes of the symptoms of asthma and should try to avoid them in the future. Some medicines will be prescribed by your doctor to keep your asthma under control. Besides, one should be quite open to the doctor and make him learn of everything that goes in your life i.e. the things you eat, the things you do and many more daily activities.

If any family disorder has prevailed, then too it should be reported to the doctor without any hesitation. This will give the doctor a clear story of what may be the cause of your asthma. Else, if you do not spill out everything, there may be a chance of the doctor giving wrong medicines to you.

So, be safe by keeping a positive and open attitude as there is no need of getting embarrassed in front of the doctor. You can also preclude serious symptoms by keeping a tab on your asthma on a daily basis. This disease can make one miss the things that he or she enjoys to do such as going to work, hanging out etc. It may be one of the leading factors of children missing their school.

Therefore, this disease should be kept under control by making an attempt to follow strict procedures required for the cure of asthma.
