What is Asthma?
Asthma is a disease of the airways that makes it difficult for people to breathe. In Asthma, the airways become swollen and people have shortness of breath and coughing. In Asthma, some people's breathing sounds like a whistle which is called "wheezing". Sometimes it is really hard to exercise with Asthma because you can't catch your breath, like me at Cross Country Running!
Different types of medication
Bronchodilators- It opens up the airways so more air moves into the Lungs
Steroids-Decreases swelling of the airways
How do we get the medication
into our lungs?
1.Asthma inhalers are
to your lungs
2.The aerochamber is a device
that makes it a bit easier to get
more of the medication from
an inhaler into your lungs.It
attaches to the inhaler and you
breathe in/out of the mask.
3.Nebulizer. A nebulizer is a device that
turns asthma medication into a fine mist
that's breathed in through a mouthpiece or
a mask worn over the nose and mouth.
Sometimes babies use a nebulizer or
people who have severe asthma.
Breathing is really important, so someone who has asthma may need to see a doctor regularly and carry special medicine to make it easier to breathe. Serious Asthma can be treated properly.

Someone with asthma can have trouble breathing because of problems with the airways, the tubes that carry air into the lungs. The airways can get irritated, swollen (puffed up), and narrow (like a pinched straw), which makes it difficult to breathe. Many things can trigger an asthma attack, like viruses, allergies, smoke, and even exercise. Some people can die from an Asthma attack.
