What Is Bronchial Asthma

What is bronchial asthma? It is the name given to the standard type of asthma. Having any form of asthma means that the airways going to your lungs are very sensitive and easily irritated. For some people with asthma, their airways are always a little irritated. These are the very unfortunate ones. For others they might not notice any irritation at all during a normal day.

When We Breathe

human lung For all of us whether we have bronchial asthma or not, when you take a breath, air comes in through your nose or mouth. It then travels through many different tubes or passageways called airways and ends up in your lungs. Your lungs are usually very flexible. When you take a breath and they fill with air, your lungs expand very easily. When you breathe out they go back to normal. So unless something unusual happens, you don't even think about it, you just breathe.

More People Have Asthma Than You Might Think

Recent asthma statistics, show that there are approximately twenty million people in the United States alone with either bronchial asthma or one of the other types of asthma. Many of these people have to think about breathing every day of their lives. The others are reminded from time to time by an asthma attack that they shouldn't take their breathing for granted.

Basic Asthma Explanation

Here is a simple explanation of bronchial asthma which applies to the other asthma types as well. This should help you to understand what is happening inside your respiratory system. As we mentioned earlier, if you have asthma, your tubes or airways that carry air into your lungs are way more sensitive than normal. If your airways could talk, they would tell you in very strong terms to stay away from and don't do certain things. OR ELSE!

Unfortunately your airways can't talk. So you have no idea what those certain 'things' are that your airways just can't stand. But just because you don't know any better doesn't let you off the hook when you do come into contact with those things. Your airways are still going to make your life miserable for a while after you do. It is up to you to figure out what those things are.

Asthma Triggers

There is a name for those things that irritate your airways. They are called asthma triggers. You might have only one specific asthma trigger or you could have a whole bunch of them. Nobody seems to have the same list of things on their trigger list. And even if you do have the same list as somebody else, you will probably both be affected in a different way when you come in contact with the same things. Make sure to check out the asthma triggers page for a list of all the possible triggers for your bronchial asthma.

Irritated Airways

So what happens when you do come in contact with one of your asthma triggers?
  • The insides of your irritated airways start to swell. You no longer have plenty of room in your airways for the air to go back and forth to your lungs.
  • The muscles around the outside of your airways are now trying to squeeze your airways shut. That makes the inside of your airways too small for the air to get through like it used to.
  • As if things weren't bad enough already, your airways now start to fill with gunk (or mucus) from being irritated. There is not much room left in your airways for you to breathe without a struggle.

Asthma Signs And Symptoms

Once those three things listed above start to happen, it is now time for the fun to begin. We call them your asthma signs and symptoms and they define what having asthma is really all about. Except for maybe cough variant asthma, other types of asthma (including bronchial asthma) all have similar symptoms. Now that you've made the mistake of getting your airways irritated, you are going to have to put up with the following results.

Sometimes they can be rather mild and other times they can be extremely bad. If these symptoms don't go away after a while, but continue to get worse, you could have a life threatening acute asthma attack. You will need to seek IMMEDIATE medical attention!

  • Coughing - this is usually called an asthma cough where that gunk from your airways comes out when you cough.
  • Wheezing - this is where you make a kind of whistling sound, usually when you breathe out. This is caused by your airways being so small and plugged up with gunk.
  • Tightness, pain or pressure in your chest. Your muscles are getting very tight and trying to squeeze your airways shut.
  • Shortness Of Breath - you are having a very hard time taking a deep breath, so you have to take short, quick breaths.
These are the main 4 asthma symptoms, but there are others you might have to deal with. You can find out more about them from the asthma signs and symptoms page.

Asthma Treatment

Your bronchial asthma will not go away by itself. But don't believe anyone when they tell you that there is no cure for your asthma. It is true that asthma prescription medications can't cure asthma, but there are plenty of natural treatments and remedies available that many people have used and are now asthma free.

So you have a couple of choices when choosing a treatment for your bronchial asthma:

  • Prescription Asthma Medications

    Prescription asthma medications will do their best to keep your bronchial asthma symptoms under some sort of control. But they don't always work, so you will need to keep an additional emergency medication (usually in an inhaler) nearby at all times. And since these meds don't cure anything, you are looking at a lifetime of using them. You might want to find out all about the long term dangerous side effects that are possible from these asthma medications.
