Asthma is a long-lasting (chronic) lung condition. People with asthma have hyperresponsive airways. Hyperresponsive lungs or airways are best described as extra sensitive to irritants that float in the air that is breathed. As irritants enter the lungs, the lungs begin to react to the irritants by narrowing obstructing the ease with which air can be taken into the lungs. This makes very difficult for the person suffering from asthma to breathe. Consider the following asthma symptoms:
  • Wheezing
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness
  • Airway inflammation
  • Bronchoconstriction
Consider the following provoking factors or triggers of asthma attacks:

  • Cold air
  • Dust
  • Strong Fumes
  • Exercise (Exercised induced asthma)
  • Inhaled irritants
  • Smoke
  • Allergens
  • Pollen
  • Animals secretions
  • Molds
  • House dust mites
