Transcript of science project about asthma

BY FAUZAAN) asthma is a long term disease that makes it hard to breath. It is a disease that can't be cured, but can be treated, which means that it kept under control and people with it can live a normal life, as long as you keep living with a proper treatment which is when you take proper medication at the proper time. What is asthma? Not everyone gets asthma, there are lots of ways you can get asthma, such as family history which is when your family from the past had allergic diseases such as hay fever, asthma or eczema, if your family had any of these diseases, you have a high chance of getting asthma. if you live near polluted areas such as highways or a unclean, dusty house, you have a chance of getting asthma. Asthma is not contagious. Who and how do people get asthma. Is it contagious? There are many causes why someone might get asthma. One type of cause is because of the dust, pollen, mold,or even smoke around a person. Someone may even get asthma because of a specific job, for example, a grain handler might get asthma from the grains because they contain grain dust or a spray painter might get asthma from the isocyanates in the paint in the can of spray paint. you may even get asthma from second-hand smoking which is when you are inhaling the smoke of a person who is smoking. WHAT IS THE CAUSE? what are the signs/symptoms? A person with asthma might get a asthma attack which is when something has triggered there allergy and/or asthma. When you have an asthma attack, you have a REALLY hard time breathing and you are coughing really badly, you are also wheezing when you have an asthma attack. when you have a asthma attack, you are required to take proper medication. That is a simply sign of asthma. Asthma affects a part in our body called the bronchial tube. When someone inhales air with ease, air goes through your mouth or nose, after that it goes through into the trachea (a wide pipe), which is then going through the bronchial tubes, and in to the lungs, after all that is completed the air goes back out, but when you have an asthma attack, the bronchial tubes have mucus stuck in them, which makes it hard to breath. So the lungs are basically affected because they do not get enough air during an asthma attack. which organs are affected? There is no cure for asthma (for now), but there is a treatment for it for example, taking your medication on time, avoiding things that trigger your asthma and/or allergies. when you have an asthma attack, take your inhaler and/or if it is really bad that you can't handle it, go to a hospital. Yes, it is accessible to all in the world meaning medication is available to everyone in the world. Is there a treatment/cure for asthma? Is it accessible to all? Yes there are social movements for asthma such as the lung association, the asthma foundation and so on. There aren't a lot of stigmas for asthma, one might be if someone feels bad for someone with asthma. Is there a social movement or stigma associated with asthma? If asthma is left untreated, it may cause PERMANENT lung damage, which can be and is life threatening. Additional info when you go to the doctor
to check your allergy or asthma, you may be fine, which is why the doctor may have to trigger your allergy or asthma to see how it is.
