Yes you can. The adrenaline rush can bring on an asthma attack if you are prone to asthma and not taking your meds properly. My sister had her first asthma attack at 34 when under a great deal of stress, and she had to be hospitalised it was so severe.

No, not in the least. A seizure is caused by many things, and is abnormal overactivity of neurons in the brain, causing the 'Tonic-Clonic' activity, or 'Grand-Mal Seizure'. An asthma attack is brought on by irritation to the airway, in which the bronchioles constrict and inflame, and later produce excess mucous. It is a respiratory disorder, whle a seizure is a neural emergency.

Asthma is usually brought on by allergens in the environment, but respiratory tract infections caused by viruses have also been shown to cause asthma. Microbial infections can also eventually bring on asthma.

instric asthma is when you dont need an inhaler exinstric asthma is when you do need an inhaler Traditionally, doctors have divided asthma into two general categories, Extrinsic (allergic) asthma and Intrinsic (non-allergic) asthma, depending upon the types of stimuli that trigger attacks. Extrinsic asthma is caused by an immune system response to inhaled allergens such as pollen, animal dander or dust mite particles. An allergen (or an antigen) is a foreign particle that enters the body. The immune system over-reacts to these often harmless items, forming antibodies, which are normally used to attack viruses or bacteria. Intrinsic asthma is not allergy-related and is caused by anything except an allergy. It may be caused by inhalation of chemicals such as cigarette smoke or cleaning agents, taking aspirin, a chest infection, stress, laughter, exercise, cold air, food preservatives or a myriad of other factors. The terms intrinsic and extrinsic asthma have now been replaced by terms related to the asthma trigger, since the inflammatory response of the airways is the same independent of the cause of the asthma. What was known as extrinsic asthma is now called allergic asthma, while asthma triggered by non-allergic factors, formerly called intrinsic asthma, is separated into such categories as exercise-induced asthma and occupational (chemical- induced) asthma. Inhalers may be prescribed for both allergic asthma (extrinsic) and non-allergic asthma (intrinsic).

Yes. But asthma is caused mainly by the actions of the mother during gestation. Smoking and hereditiary issues makes the chances off offspring having asthma imminent.

Depending on how bad your asthma is, it may take different strategies to help treat it. Sit the person up. Do NOT put pressure on their chest. Asthma attacks make the person breathe faster and harder because they are not getting enough air. This is caused by the swelling of the bronchi oles in the lungs. Get the person to relax and slow their breathing. DON'T LET THEM LIE DOWN!!! It's easier for someone who's having an asthma attack to breathe if they are sitting up and slightly forward. If the attack does not improve (you will be able to tell; they will cough/wheeze less and breath more normally), then take them to the hospital. If you don't have a car or feel that you are unable to do so, THEN CALL 911 (or whatever your equivalent is). The medics will be able to treat them and keep them breathing on the way to the hospital.

Asthma is inflammation caused by an irritant or can be caused by exercise. The inflammation causes increased amounts of mucus to be produced in the lungs. Bronchospasms also occur as part of this process which narrow the bronchi causing the wheezing sound often associated with asthma.

The latest available statistics show that in 2009 asthma caused the deaths of 411 Australians.

Asthma is caused by environmental and genetic factors. These factors combine to determine how severe an asthma case is or how it responds to medicine. Obesity has also been linked to the increase of asthma cases in recent years in the US and the UK.
