What Is Asthma?
Asthma By: Jia Ming
If a person has asthma, they will experience…
• Tightness on the chest

Symptoms of Asthma
There are two types of asthma attacks, one of them is called a inflammation, and the other is called Broncho spasm.

• Broncho spasm: It happens when the walls of the airway constrict rapidly, and become very narrow.

• Inflammation: When the airway detects a trigger, for example dust, they overreact, they will release chemicals, which increases the mucus production, and cause the airways to swell.

•"The spacer relatively fragile, the plastic bags need to be replaced every three to four months, and it cannot be used with a face mask." - https://www.health-first.org/health_info/your_health_first/kids/asthma.cfm

After looking at all the research it is my opinion that if you are to get Asthma, the best thing to do is to go to the doctor. The doctor will tell you everything that you need to do, because the risks are really high and when you get an asthma attack. You would’t know what to do.
My Opinion


My Comment
I think my research is reliable because i used my old prezi to help me find some information, it is reliable because i got the information from brain pop. We use brain pop because we use it in class often.
