Bronchial Asthma

Bronchial Asthma Causes

Bronchial asthma can be a congenital complication with the heart, and periodic inflammation of the bronchial tubes. Asthma attacks can be brought about by allergies, reactions to environmental hazards such as polluted air or feline fur or cigarette smoke. Stress can also cause an asthma attack.

Bronchial Asthma Definition

Bronchial asthma is a pulmonary inflammation wherein the air passages become narrow, causing incessant coughing, shortness of breath and wheezing. Severe asthma attacks can be fatal.

Bronchial Asthma Diagnosis

Bronchial asthma is diagnosed using spirometry, a test that measures the flow of oxygen into the lungs.

Bronchial Asthma Symptoms and Signs

Persons with asthma suffer periodic episodes of breathing difficulties, as oxygen is hindered to pass to the lungs.

Bronchial Asthma Treatment

Asthma is rather managed and not treated. Avoidance of asthma-inducing substances helps a lot, as well as antihistamine medications. Inhalers and nebulizers also help widen the air passageways during an asthma attack.
