Adorable, asthmatic otter learns to use inhaler





Many do not understand that asthma is not just a sudden wheeze or coughing bout, but is active 24/7. Asthma is caused by the tubes that help you breath becoming swollen and inflamed, therefore causing them to tighten up and leave less room for air to get to the lungs. Which in turn causes breathlessness, wheezing, and coughing. 

Medication Medication and preventive medicine like the flu jab can help the elderly live a relatively normal life. And may even help them to stay attack free. Contributing Factors Remove as many contributing factors as possible, such as dust and dust mites, smoke, and pet hair. This will all help the asthma sufferer breath more easily and give them good quality air therefore preventing frequent attacks and trips to either the doctors or hospital. 

Even the season may make one person seem as two, the first thing it's important to do? Talk with your doctor about you. Ask him the questions you need to know for your particular case, and keep the channels of communication open. If you have a question, you should always ask. If symptoms feel like they are getting worse, they probably are. 

Smoking, pollen, and animal dander may aggravate asthma. If you re living with asthma, don t allow smoking in your home and don t smoke yourself. Avoiding things that might irritate your condition help make living with asthma a breeze, instead of a tight squeeze. On high-pollen days, make use of the air conditioner. 

Do you need to take your reliever medication more than four times a day? You are in the yellow zone. You need to speak to your doctor right away, as you're losing control and you're very near slipping into. THE RED ZONE: Excessive coughing, wheezing, tightness in the chest or labored breathing. You find yourself gasping for air, sweating, you have unattribuited anxiety, decreased activity level, your reliever medication isn't working, you've even got blue lips or fingernails. 

Though it s impossible to free the world of these breathing irritations, you can help free your home of them. This way, avoiding attacks is a piece of cake and living with asthma means living with fresh, breathable air. To help eliminate these irritants in the home and work place, don t allow cigarette smoking.
