BCHS-Ryan Lok's insight:

Prevention of Asthma

 

There are a few ways that you can prevent yourself from having asthma by doing simple things. Asthma is mainly caused by material going into lungs and logically it is best if we prevent this from happening. To do so, wearing protective face gear can filter dust and other foriegn objects from coming in and can simply prevent dust coming into the lungs; which can help prevent asthma. The enviroment we work and live in can trigger asthma, and we can prevent asthma by also reducing the inhalation of dust and smoke by avioding those enviroments. By avoiding these environments it can reduce the risk of getting asthma. Taking frequent rests can let the lungs recover from any irritation that could had happened. If you already have asthma, it is best if you follow your medication intake properly so you can prevent asthma attacks.

Overview of Asthma

Overview of Asthma. PostDateIcon February 2nd, 2013 | PostAuthorIcon Author: Asthma is a symptom caused by abnormalities of the respiratory tract in the form of a heightened sensitivity to stimuli from the environment as a trigger.
BCHS-Ryan Lok's insight:

Overview of Asthma

 

When the resiratory tract is highly sensitive to the stimuli from the environment, this triggers a symptom called asthma. Basicly asthma is when the airway is abnormal and causes allergic reactions or inflammation from ingredients such as:

House Dusts from carpet, sofa, clothes stored in the closet for a long time, ceiling dust,etc.

Pollen, hay, grasses or agricultral materials can trigger asthma because of allergies.

 

What triggers asthma is when there is a change in the envionment(change in weather, temperature, smoke levels, dust levels and humidity) , these factors can cause asthma.
