Bronchial Asthma (Adults and children 12+)(patient version)

With bronchial asthma there is a pathological narrowing of the bronchi. As a result, the affected person suffers from shortness of breath and coughing. Sometimes there can be severe fear of suffocation, nausea, and coughing up phlegm. The symptoms usually appear in attacks, which means they come suddenly and then disappear again after a while. In severe cases, the symptoms can be constant and only vary in severity.

Asthma can be caused by allergies, physical and / or mental stress. Other possible triggers are a cold, cold air, certain medications and many others. However, sometimes no cause can be found.

The treatment of asthma should be based on the latest scientific findings, which are summarized annually in the guidelines of the "Global Initiative for Asthma". With this IWIMED patient guideline, we want to help ensure that you always receive the best possible treatment.
