r4tqv5svbmlfc0pgolvafep265FA  asthma
  • Asthma is a condition where the distant/small wind pipes are swollen and the swelling results in spasms
  • Asthma may be caused by an allergy, a cold, a particular drug, or cigarette smoke.
  • People with asthma may have sudden attacks at night.

The symptoms are :
  • Wheezing (whistling sounds when breathing), and coughing.
  • They usually have to use a “rescue” inhaler at the start of an attack
  • Be calm, reassure the person and ask the location of his or her inhaler
  • Ask the person to take the “rescue” inhaler (e.g. Albuterol inhaler). Within few minutes he/she should feel better. If their breathing does not, improve, ask him/her to take another dose of the same inhaler. They may repeat 2-4 inhaler puffs at a time every 15-20 minutes. If the repeated inhalers are not helping then he/she should seek medical service ( doctor or emergency room service).
