Good evening friends, my name is Dr Sumit Wadhwa I am a consultant internal and pulmonary medicine at Global Health Experts, Gurgaon. We treat many patients with chest conditions like asthma from diagnosis treatment to patient education, today's topic bronchial asthma. Asthma is the chronic condition of the lung that can be managed but not cure, it usually affects the average of the lungs resulting, causing narrowing and may resulting in wheezing and chest congestion. During breathing the airway air goes through the nose into the upper airway and to the windpipe which branches into the bronchite to reach the lungs. In asthma, the airways become oversensitive so that they can easily irritate by certain triggers called as asthmatic triggers most people with asthma are described as atopic that means they have an allergic-type reaction on exposure to these triggers. These triggers for asthma attack will be different for everyone common outdoor triggers are pollen, smoke cold weather and pollution, common indoor triggers for asthma our house mite, cockroach mold and pet dander. However, some people from asthma may also have attacks on excess exposure to excessive stress laughter, emotional attacks and during certain viral infection asthma triggers causes the airway to narrow and the muscles to contract to result in wheezing when the airway when the air passes through these narrow passages. Mucus production also occurs from the lining of the airways resulting in further narrowing and making breathing difficult. These may result in persistence and producing symptoms of an asthma attack that may be mild moderate or severe requiring hospitalization. The narrowing of these airways is usually reversible when the exposure to trigger is removed and inflammation is treated medically. Now prevention of, a prevalence of asthma is increasing worldwide due to increasing pollution, changing lifestyles and excessive hygienic conditions. Test done for diagnosis of asthma include Spirometry which is usually a permanent function test using assesses the severity of abstraction and hence the severity of disease, blood test charges suggestive of asthma include eosinophilia, chest x-ray is usually normal in asthma but is done to rule out other conditions if there is a doubt and it detection of certain triggers such as houses dust mite and pollen is done by skin prick test. Management of asthma includes the goals of the treatment are to decrease, prevent recurrent asthma attacks which may lead to permanent damage to the airways raising to persisting symptoms. Medications used for asthma include inhalers which maybe controller or rescue medications, regular rule use of controller medications containing long-acting anti-inflammatory agents reduce the inflammation of the airways making them blood sensitive to these triggers. Using inhalers with correct technique and results in best outcome and reduce the medication course, we may also advise the patient regarding their triggers and to avoid these triggers. Immunotherapy measures are provided to certain patients to make them hypo or desensitized the patient to the triggers of asthma. Thank you for the patient listening.

Asthma - Common Things That Can Trigger It!

Asthma - Common Things That Can Trigger It!

Asthma is an inflammatory disease, which affects the airways of your lungs (respiratory tract that pumps oxygen into the lungs). It is long term in nature. It is characterized by shortness of breath, coughing and wheezing. It occurs few times a day or few times a week depending on the person it affects. Sometimes it worsens during the night.

What triggers Asthma?

  1. Airborne particles such as dust mites, mold spores, pollen and cockroach waste.
  2. Infections in the respiratory system such as common cold.
  3. Cold air can also trigger asthma.
  4. Physical or outdoor activities which make you pant such as running, skipping, jogging and jumping can cause shortness of breath, thus triggering asthma.
  5. Pollutants and irritants in air such as smoke.
  6. Some medications can also trigger asthma.
  7. Stress and nervous attacks (panic attacks) also trigger asthma.

How to manage asthma better by changing your lifestyle:

  1. Try to avoid keeping animals in your house such as dogs, cats and rabbits. Many times animal fur, waste, urine and saliva contains particles which can cause allergic reactions and make you cough uncontrollably. This in turn triggers asthma attacks. If you have pets try keeping them away from your bedroom.
  2. Dust mites also cause allergies which trigger asthma. So wash your carpets, rugs, bed-linen and pillowcases in hot water.
  3. Bugs and insects such as cockroaches are not only unhygienic, but can also trigger asthma. Cockroach droppings near your bed, kitchen and food are dangerous and you should call an exterminator to get rid of these bugs.
  4. Sometimes, heavy fragrance also aggravates your respiratory tract and triggers shortness of breath. Avoid using heavy perfumes, deodorants and room fresheners.
  5. Pollution also triggers asthma. Dust particles come out from the vehicles and mix with the air. If this air is inhaled, it might trigger uncontrollable asthma. So try to cover your mouth with a cloth when you step out of your house.

Asthma can be very severe and can bring many hurdles in your day to day activities. Changing your lifestyle and certain habits can reduce asthma to a great extent.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi I am suffering from lung cancer stage 4 I am not having enough resistance to have chemotherapy what should I do Im in stage 4 what will be my life.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Chemotherapy in stage 4 is as such not intended to be curative,its just palliative to relieve symptoms and prolong some life. If you have opted not to receive chemotherapy after understanding all its pros and cons then its your wish which matters the most. You may still receive other palliative treatments required to relieve you of your sufferings due to disease.

Which test can detect asthma? Can I stop esiflo 250 mg transcap inhaler in middle of use?
No you should not stop drugs in between as it can lead to your asthma getting out of control. Get a Spirometry with post bronchodilator test to confirm your asthma.

My husband is suffering from tonsillitis since 1 year. Had many antibiotics but it is not curing completely. Now he have pain on his back neck. What to do for this.

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
Tonsillitis is mainly caused due to some viral or bacterial infections. Homeopathy provides a very effective, completely safe and lasting cure for Tonsillitis, without any need of surgery. Homeopathic medicines for tonsillitis root out and eradicate the recurring tendency of Tonsillitis and thus provide a permanent cure. You can consult me online for homoeopathic treatment without side effects.
