How is Bronchial Asthma Diagnosed?
For a proper diagnosis of bronchial Asthma, it is very important to describe your asthma symptoms to your doctor as there are chances that asthma symptoms might not happen during your doctor’s appointment. You should also take an account that when the symptoms occur like during exercise, with a cold, or with the exposure of smoke.
To diagnose asthma, doctor may perform some tests. First of all, your doctor may go for spirometry, which is a lung function test to calculate breathing capacity and how well you generally breathe. A device called spirometer is mainly used during this test.
Apart from it, doctor can also perform a Peak Expiratory Flow (PEF). This test is performed with the help of a device called a peak flow meter. Using this device, the patient vigorously exhales into the tube to evaluate the force of air he/she can expend out of his/her lungs.
In some cases, the doctor can also do a chest X-ray to exclude any other diseases that might be responsible for causing similar symptoms.
How is Bronchial Asthma Treated?
After the diagnoses of Bronchial Asthma, the doctor will prescribe you some asthma medication, which generally includes asthma inhalers and pills, and recommend some lifestyle changes to cure and prevent asthma attacks. For instance, long-acting anti-inflammatory asthma inhalers are generally required to cure the inflammation related with asthma. If used properly, these inhalers distribute low doses of steroids to the lungs with least side effects. The fast-acting or “rescue” bronchodilator inhalers are very effective and work straight away on opening airways in case of an asthma attack.
If case of bronchial asthma, it is very important that doctor should show the patient how to use the inhalers properly. Moreover, patients also need to make sure that they should keep their rescue inhaler with themselves during an asthma attack or asthma emergency.
Although there is no proper cure of asthma has been found yet, the asthma medications can prove useful to prevent asthma symptoms.
