Understanding Asthma & Asthma Attacks

Asthma is a chronic condition that affects the airways in the lungs, making it difficult for those with the condition to breathe normally. Asthma attacks occur when the airways swell and become narrower due to certain triggers, leading to challenges related to getting air to pass in and out. The triggers that can lead to asthma symptoms, attacks, and flare-ups include:

  • Exercise
  • Air that is cold and/or dry
  • Smoke, dust, chemical fumes, and other environmental irritants
  • Allergens like pet dander, pollen, and mold
  • Respiratory infections, including the common cold
  • Stress
  • Certain medications such as aspirin, beta blockers, and NSAIDs

Effective asthma management can help to reduce the effects that these irritants can cause in individuals with asthma. This may include the use of an inhaler or other recommended devices as prescribed by a medical professional, but additional treatment may be needed in cases of severe asthma or asthma attacks.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
