These changes will produce obstruction of airways, coughing, wheezing, and chest tightness, fast breathing, running nose; a severe asthma leads to low level of blood oxygen and a serious breath shortening.

Asthma being a chronic disease is due to swelling of inner lining of airways. Airways will then have an extra mucous and there is a muscle spasm around the airways.

Every individual suffers with different severity levels of this inflammation.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF ASTHMA?
Asthma is a form of an allergic complication in which inflammation of airways is common in all patients of asthma. According to recent studies, this sort of inflammation is causative in an asthmatic condition.

Asthma not being contagious is a lifetime disease and can be controlled with routine medications. Although it is chronic yet anyone can have a sudden and acute attack with symptoms of asthma.

WHAT TO DO DURING THE ATTACK?
A patient should follow the doctor’s instructions for asthma.Albuterol treatment would be helpful as a first-aid medication. Encourage to cough for the sake of chest clearance. Taking liquids like water and fresh juices will help keeping mucous loose so that an asthmatic patient can cough it easily.

A HIDDEN ASTHMA
Until a patient cough or breathes rapidly, asthmatic conditions cannot be detected clearly. Such patients more often suffer with a respiratory illness.

Hidden asthma can then produce some recognizable symptoms that sometimes even a doctor fail to distinguish between an abnormal and a normal breath. Pulmonary function test reveals many cases of airways obstruction.

    I think one of the hardest things for me is becoming too caught up in reps and sets. Lets say I plan on doing 4 sets of 12 reps sometimes I make it so I have to hit those exactly when maybe 3 sets was enough and on my last set I only got 10 reps but I quickly lower the weight and bust out 2 more reps.
