Why does a person with asthma have trouble breathing?
Asthma is a complex medical problem in which both airway inflammation, bronchoconstriction, and excess mucous production play a role in causing shortness of breath. Bronchoconstriction causes a decreased diameter of the small airways, which makes air passage more difficult. Inflammation and excess mucous production cause plugging of these smaller airways, making air movement impossible and resulting in air trapping. As a result, a patient with asthma can take a breath in, but cannot exhale all of that air.

Thanks for the feedback!
mabye a mother that smokes while she is pregnant. There are some other ways to get asthma, too.
Answer your bronchioles swell up which restricts the amount of oxygen going into your lungs
Not exactly. If you had shortness of breath, call your doctor and make and appointment to see if you actually have asthma. Sometimes people would have shortness of breath but …don't have asthma. It's just that sometimes you over do something that makes you tired.
When you have asthma, you breathe normally; there are no special techniques. However, your nose may be stuffed up, so you might need to breathe through your mouth. Avoid… running, or any other physically demanding activity, especially in cold weather. Don't hesitate to use that rescue inhaler ;)
Wheezing, coughing, all around lack of oxygen to your lungs. Until you have an attack, you don't know just how much work it takes to breathe.
it blocks your airways
your bronchioles swell up which restricts the amount of oxygen going into your lungs.
You can use either: A nebulizer. You put anti inflammatory medicine or other medicine to help stop difficulty breathing into a plastic chamber, you put the mask to your mou…th ( comes in a mouth tube or a strap where it cover your mouth) and breath it in to reduce swelling and inflammation. OR A fast acting inhaler which will quickly reduce swelling and inflammation. There is a aerochamber ( you puff the medicine into a chamber,open the lid, then breath it in, gets more medicine then) A regular inhaler which you puff then breath)
You took h1n1 mist and have asthma now have trouble breathing?
BASICLLY, Asthma is to do with your air ways..... it tightens and you can't breath in OR out. Asthma is very common and is different for everyone. If you want or need informat…ion, ask your doctor or GP about Asthma. Love, lozziemacozzie ♥
It is is inflammation of the airways - causing a swelling that causes a narrowing of the air passage which reduces the airflow.
When someone talks air moves past tissue in the throat (larynx). For example, while singing a person takes a deep breath in order to sustain a long note. When there is a small… amount of air, the person is "short of breath" then only enough air passes to allow for a short amount of sound to be produced.
The real problem arises when the person with asthma tries to breathe out. The air cannot get out through the blocked airways, so it stays trapped in the lungs.
Asthma is an inflammatory disease that affects the airways. The major effect of asthma are bronchospasms, which is when the bronchioles contract without control. This blocks o…r reduces air travel within the lungs causing difficulty breathing.
Your shist outta luck, buddy. Sorry.
They go into spasm. That is they get narrower. An inhaler contains a broncho-dilator,
