Bronchial asthma is a chronic airway inflammation by a variety of cells, in particular mast cells, eosinophils and T lymphocytes participation. Is a serious threat to people’s health major chronic diseases, there are around 100 million people suffer from the disease; the majority of patients with early or mild episodes of coughing and chest tightness as the main performance, and over the years, eventually becoming who survived the onset of patients are often forced to take a seat or in a sitting position, respiratory effort, dry cough or cough a lot of white foamy sputum, increased heart rate, sweating, and even cyanosis. Have seizures or exacerbation or Yuhan spring and autumn, at night or early morning common law. Whether early or mild or aged patients with chronic symptoms of asthma attack within minutes, several hours to several days after using bronchodilators relieve. Long-term recurrent and secondary infection can be more complicated with chronic bronchitis, emphysema, bronchiectasis, interstitial pneumonia, pulmonary fibrosis, pneumothorax, mediastinal emphysema, atelectasis and pulmonary heart disease. Chest X-ray examination; bronchial provocation test or exercise test can be confirmed. Asthma and polygenic genetic, relatives of patients with asthma prevalence in population prevalence, and the closer the genetic relationship is, the higher prevalence; the more severely ill patients, their relatives prevalence rate is also higher.
Currently asthma is a chronic airway inflammatory disease that potentially disease-based, we usually refer to inflammation and bacterial and viral infections caused by difference. Such non-specific inflammation, or what we call allergic inflammation. Due to the presence of allergic asthma airway inflammation, bronchial cause increased sensitivity to external stimuli, when exposed to a variety of external stimuli, prone to contraction of bronchial reaction, manifested as episodes of respiratory difficulties.
