"We want to keep the public informed and offer the latest break-through medical information available," said ChristiaNet's President, Bill Cooper. "Our research reveals that new information about asthma management is helping those who struggle with this respiratory disorder reduce the number of their attacks significantly."

Asthma is an inflammatory disorder of the lungs and ranks among the most common chronic conditions in the United States, affecting an estimated 14.9 million persons according to the website of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. The main signs and symptoms of asthma are coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and a tightness in the chest. During asthma attacks, the muscles surrounding the airways spasm and tighten and the airway lining becomes inflamed, causing excessive mucus to form.
The number of doctors who support the idea that asthma management equates to fewer asthma related hospitalizations is growing. ChristiaNet's research team recently spoke with a pediatrician who said, "Our goal is to help patients understand the nature of asthma and to help a patient recognize the conditions that contribute attacks. With a plan of action, it is possible to keep this disorder under control, reducing the risks of a flare-up." Asthma management is seen as not only medicating symptoms, but implementing maintenance regimens and avoiding triggers.
Avoiding triggers is important in controlling asthma. Typical aggravating environmental factors may include: weather changes, mold, dust mite, animal dander, and tobacco smoke. Research is also showing that emotions and exercise may trigger asthmatic problems. When there is an increase in asthma activity, patients will want to begin using doctor prescribed medication to keep airways open and breathing at an optimum. Signals that there is an increase in asthma activity can include skin color changes, an itching in the throat, runny nose, fatigue, coughing, or a drop in the peak flow meter reading. A peak flow meter is a device that measures breath. There are more than 5000 deaths due to asthma annually and ChristiaNet's pediatric source explained that many deaths can be avoided with proper management of this disorder.
