Asthma is a disease of the airways of the lungs which is characterized by increased sensitivity of the airways to a variety of triggers. It is generally an episodic disease, i.e., acute attacks followed by symptom free periods. Though most attacks are generally short lived, sometimes serious conditions occur in which severe Asthma is unrelieved for many hours or even days, like in
What Causes Asthma?
- The exact cause of asthma isn’t known.
- Family genes and certain environmental exposures interact to cause asthma to develop, most often early in life.
- These factors include:
- An inherited tendency to develop allergies, called atopy
- Parents who have asthma.
- Certain respiratory infections during childhood.
- Contact with some airborne allergens or exposure to some viral infections in infancy or in early childhood when the immune system is developing.
- If asthma or atopy runs in your family, exposure to airborne allergens (for example, house dust mites, cockroaches, and possibly cat or dog dander) and irritants (for example, tobacco smoke) may make your airways more
reactive to substances in the air you breathe.
- Different factors may be more likely to cause asthma in some people than in others.
- In sensitive individuals, asthma symptoms can be triggered by breathing in allergy-causing substances.
Common asthma triggers:
- Animals (pet hair or dander)
- Changes in weather (most often cold weather)
- Chemicals in the air or in food
- Respiratory infections, such as
the common cold
- Strong emotions (stress)
- Tobacco smoke
- Aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) provoke asthma in some patients.
Signs and Symptoms of Asthma
- Common asthma symptoms include:
- Coughing. Coughing from asthma is often worse at night or early in the morning, making it hard to sleep.
- Wheezing. Wheezing is a whistling or squeaky sound that occurs when breathes.
- Chest tightness. This may feel like something is squeezing or sitting on chest.
- Shortness of breath. They may feel like you can’t get air out of your lungs.
Asthma exists in two states: Steady-state of chronic asthma symptoms,
- Acute state of an acute asthma exacerbation.
- The symptoms are different depending on what state the patient is in.
- Common symptoms of asthma in a steady-state include:
- Night time coughing,
- Shortness of breath with exertion but no dyspnoea at rest,
- Chronic ‘throat-clearing’ type cough,
- Tight feeling in the chest.
Acute exacerbation of asthma symptoms
- This is commonly referred to as an asthma attack.
- The cardinal symptoms of an attack are shortness of breath (dyspnoea),
- Wheezing and chest tightness.
- Coughing to clear sputum.
- The onset may be sudden, with a sense of constriction in the chest, breathing becomes difficult, and wheezing occurs
