I want to be healthy all year, but in the autumn, winter and spring very often there are risks or worsening of various diseases, such as asthma. The disease can be infectious, allergic or other origin. In order to avoid further complications and hospitalization, it is important to monitor their own state of health and well-being of their relatives, loved ones. The first "bells" can be quite innocent and invisible against the background of the common cold or the first spring sun, flowers.

Perhaps in the world there are very few people (if they were), that with 100 percent certainty can say that is completely and totally healthy. If our environment is simply impossible. But the reason for it not only audio. This disease, like asthma, the occurrence of which was first described by Hippocrates, and which, of course, received the ancient Greek name, translated into modern Russian means "choking" or "heavy breathing". Now they are suffering (according to official statistics) in the United States about 10 million people in Russia - about 2 million less.

And it's only the registered cases of people sought medical help. Asthma is known for its cunning, and many people simply do not realize that they are actually sick, experiencing typical seasonal outbreak of severe discomfort or coughing during colds, or SARS.

The main types of asthma according to international classification

Scientists still have not come to a consensus about the causes of illness from this disease, but the representatives of official medicine in unison claim that asthma is incurable. At the moment, it is classified as a disease of the respiratory system and is divided into these types:

  • Mixed
  • Atopic
  • Status asthmaticus
  • Non-allergic
  • Allergic

With the help of drugs can be removed bronchial spasms, and for some time it leads to a decrease in exacerbation of the disease. But a complete cure is not out of the question. Symptoms inherent asthma, such as coughing, shortness of breath, chest tightness and pressure, shortness of breath and fear of suffocation, after taking certain drugs retreat to eventually return. Unpleasant, complicating the life of asthma symptoms are observed in very young children, and people of mature and even elderly.

Some facts and legends

Ancient physicians like Hippocrates, Aretha, Galen saw the causes of asthma are mainly in the impact of the cold and moist air on the body. But a doctor from Italy, Gerolamo Cardano, to diagnose the disease one of the bishops as asthma, allergic intuitively figured out its origin. After the diseased feather fountain was replaced a more modest and ascetic foundation cloth, according to the bishop began to eat the diet prescribed by your doctor and do some exercise, he has successfully recovered. It is a remarkable result of scientific and intuitive insight (or comparison of facts) of the mid-16th century.

Next, who came to the conclusion that the nature of allergic asthma, Belgian scientist was the mid-17th century Baptista van Helmont. He first came to the conclusion that there is bronchial asthma due to irritants such as dust in the house, the aroma of fried fish. This is a guess, after almost a century, was expressed by John Hunter, a surgeon from Scotland. The disease at one time attracted the brightest minds of famous scientists Andrew Rhodes and Sergey Petrovich Botkin, who called him allergic, catarrhal and reflex, seeing the primary cause of asthma in the malfunction of the nervous system, especially the autonomic. Nowadays, asthma, or rather one of the varieties of the disease, called atopic-response, which translated means "inappropriate, incomprehensible, strange."

Facts of our time

In our time, signs of the disease are the same as centuries ago: asthma, shortness of breath, severe bronchial cough and so on. Some doctors still think that asthma develops in the background of allergies, thus believe that prevention is enough in the offseason, ie the winter months in order to save the patient from all the hassles associated with asthma. But such a view - only a drop in the sea. Means against allergies, in fact, a lot of help, but in the opinion of the experts, this suggests that in fact patients do not suffer from asthma, and other diseases and the appropriate treatment is required. This disease is quite difficult to diagnose since the symptoms and especially for asthma symptoms are similar to other diseases.

The first manifestations of asthma, initial symptoms - a cough, wheezing and whistling inhalation / exhalation, sense of lung congestion, shortness of breath, squeezing the chest, palpitations, heavy and loud breathing. Asthma develops in three main stages: compensation subcompensation, hypoxemic coma. In the latter case, the complication of the disease can cause death, so the claim that Asthma - disease is not fatal, it is debatable.

The causes of nocturnal asthma is not fully understood, but many doctors believe that there is any indication of the variety of the disease indicate a loss of control of the disease.

Aspirin Asthma Symptoms

Often it is seen as an isolated form of the disease, and together with the air of asthma as atopic. It is accompanied by a whole bunch of diseases: conjunctivitis, rhinitis, disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, skin rash with symptoms of urticaria. Asthma Aspirin differs from other species of this unpleasant disease that when it is necessary not just treatment, but often there is a necessity due to the resuscitation of status asthmaticus.

Virus-induced asthma: symptoms

It occurs due to infection of the respiratory system and its effect on respiratory infectious diseases. Arisen during the course of the disease lung hyperreactivity may regress after a while (1-1, 5 months) without any consequences for the person, especially if you choose the right treatment.

But in the case of unfavorable conditions for recovering (cold, dampness, drafts, etc.), asthma symptoms: cough and sore throat - are quite capable to develop into a full-fledged disease.
