INTRODUCTION Asthma  is a chronic (long-term) lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways.  Asthma causes recurring periods of wheezing (a whistling sound when you breathe), chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing. The coughing often occurs at night or early in the morning. The medical definition of asthma is simple, but the condition itself is quite complex. Doctors define asthma as a “chronic inflammatory disease of the airway” that causes the following symptoms: Shortness of breath Tightness in the chest Coughing Wheezing Asthma has no set pattern. http://www.lungs-sleep.com/

ABOUT ASTHMA A condition in which a person's airways become inflamed, narrow and swell, and produce extra mucus. http://www.lungs-sleep.com/

Slide 4:

SYMPTOMS OF ASTHMA http://www.lungs-sleep.com/ BREATHING: In someone with normal lung function, air is inhaled through the nose and mouth. It passes through the trachea (also called the windpipe) before moving into the bronchi (large airways), which are branching tubes leading away from the trachea. The bronchi branch into smaller and smaller tubes, ending in many small sacs called alveoli. It’s in the alveoli that oxygen, which the body needs, is passed to the blood, while carbon dioxide, which the body doesn’t, is removed from it.

Slide 5:

Normal Lungs http://www.lungs-sleep.com/ The lining of the airways becomes inflamed (irritated, reddened and swollen), and may produce more mucous. The more inflammation the more sensitive the airway becomes, and the more symptoms. The muscles that surround the airways become sensitive and start to twitch and tighten, causing the airways to narrow.
