Asthma

Asthma causes the airways to get inflamed and narrowed, making it hard to breathe.

 

According to Asthma Australia, one in nine Australians are affected by Asthma, which is around 2.7 million of the total population. Further,  80% of asthma hospitalisations are preventable.

Asthama should not be taken lightly as 389 Australians died from asthma in 2018.

Asthma can affect one’s life in different ways, whether it is by missing school or work or not being able to take part in sports. An individual may also find it difficult to sleep and may experience exhaustion due to asthma. Severe asthma may even make simple things like talking difficult.

​You have many treatment options based on the  severity of the condition. These include  a  puffer and the preventer.

Diagnosis is done based on clinical symptoms, blood tests, and breathing tests. Visiting a general practitioner for a diagnosis is important because the symptoms of asthma are similar to that of a chest infection or wheezing.
