What happens during an asthma attack?


Fifteen year old Chris is having a severe
asthma attack. His immune system has made what could be a fatal mistake (“I can’t breathe”) and is shutting down his airways. (“I really can’t breathe”) Without help from the medical team, Chris’ body may shut down completely (“I’m going to die”).
The breathing tubes in Chris’ chest are squeezing tightly shut, and filling with sticky mucus,
blocking his vital oxygen supply. If he is not treated soon, he will die. Here’s a really
life-threatening episode of asthma. Asthma is pretty common in our community, and most
of the time it’s not this life-threatening, but this one is quite serious. Chris’ allergic
reaction has tricked his immune system into shutting down his airways, blocking vital
oxygen to the rest of his body. The drugs are supposed to help the muscles around Chris’
airways to relax, but there is a problem. The mucus stops the drugs from reaching his blood supply. Time is running out – Chris’ body takes emergency action. His shoulders and neck muscles swing
into action to help inflate his lungs, but even this is not working. As the pressure
mounts, the team must find a treatment to get the drugs past the mucus. Chris is by
no means an isolated case. One in nine Australian children suffer from asthma, but for Chris
the situation is looking dangerous. Chris is currently having Ventolin or Salbutamol
through a nebuliser which is breathing into his lungs. This acts on the muscles around
the small airways and helps to open them up. Unfortunately sometimes when the airways are
very closed down, the Salbutamol doesn’t reach the areas that it needs to get to. If the inhaled
Ventolin is not working, then we often will go to a different form of medication – again
a relaxant for the muscles around the small airways, and it helps to open those airways
up, and it’s given as a one-off dose over about 10-15 minutes in severe asthma. Inside Chris’ body, the
airways start to open as the drugs take effect. Air finally returns to Chris’ lungs, inflating
the three hundred million tiny airsacs. At last, he can breathe. Chris seems to be feeling
a lot better now. The intravenous medication seem to have taken effect. He still is very
tired, because he’s been working very hard with his breathing, but we’re a lot happier
with his clinical progress now. Chris was admitted to intensive care for three days,
with a further three days in a medical ward before being sent home. He is now back at
school, playing soccer, and is aware that it is important to look after his asthma and
tell his teachers and family when he’s not well. Chris had always expected other people
to look after his asthma, but after this emergency, he now understands that he must recognise
when he is having asthma and follow his asthma action plan. Before leaving hospital, Chris
learned what asthma is, how to manage his triggers, what his medications do, and how
to use them correctly. Chris now uses a spacer to have his medication. He also learnt how
to recognise when his asthma was worse, and the need to follow his asthma action plan.
Chris has taken control of his asthma.

  • So they suppressed the symptom and call it a day. They never addressed the real cause of the problem. Just put him for lifetime on antispasmodic synthetic drug that is suppressing lung's ability to expectorate mucus. Lungs will never heal that way – they will just stay the same for ever. "Lets call it incurable or autoimmune and nobody will ask questions!"

  • I had a major asthma attack today along with the flu. I kept using my Ventolin inhaler all day but no luck. I finally called 911 and called off work, didn't want to call off but they have a point system there and I was up in pints bc of my life asthma . I had asthma my whole life. It's like a fish out of water. No oxygen to the brain, every breath gets smaller and smaller, every cough gets more evil. If anyone wants to know what it's like just breath through a small coffee straw. Good Luck.

  • In 2016 my sister in-law told us about Rich Herbs Foundation (ww w. richherbsfoundation. c om) and their successfully COPD treatment.

My quality of life has greatly improved and every one of my symptoms including difficulty breathing, Chronic cough and wheezing are gone. I will be 52 soon and have never been healthier.

  • Asthma is the disease which affects the airways in which some allergic reactions cause irritation to the muscles around the airways and causes inflammation and increased mucus production which results in cough, shortness of breath. Now get the best homeopathy treatment for asthma with help of Homeocare International.

  • i haye being looked like at like an alien when using my inhaler. like what are you looking at? it’s not my fault i can’t breath well without this.

  • I am a bronchial asthma patient, can I give artificial respiration (mouth to mouth respiration) to a person with the breathing problems

  • i wish cris was in zimbabwe he could get permanent cure within 3 days through using natural herbs from a tree

  • At a new year's eve party, I didn't have my inhaler with me and I had a severe asthma attack and nearly passed out. I've been asthmatic for almost a decade now, but it had never gotten this bad. My mother was actually scared that I would die. I'm lucky that my inhaler works so well on me, things slowly started getting better once I used it a few times. Never forget your inhaler fellow asthmatics, wherever you go, even if you don't think your asthma will be triggered. You never know.

  • I have asthma to but it before.now I never feel it again.because I Have effective medicine. A drop of menstrual blood in my mother in a large glass of warm tea is treated with her own birth canal.

  • I only experience exercise-induced ashma usually. I always feel like i'm going to die. My way of preventing me from passing out usually consists of dropping onto the floor, coughing, and drinking water, and coughing. Obviously, I'm breathing heavily constantly trying to get in more breaths as I lay. I feel a bit drunk and light headed, also sleepy. Oddly enough, yawning over and over helps me for some reason, and I don't know why, but I feel like I'm yawning out the ashma somehow. Also, even more odd, yawning gets awakes me from the light headed state, and gradually after about 10-15 minutes, the hard breathing kinda stops. I honestly am probably going to go get a inhaler within the next few days. I love exercise, but this shit has stopped me from jogging cause just after 4 minutes, I'm having the ashma attack. Even more crazy, usually after it's over, then I'm allowed to jog, and can jog longer without experiencing the ashma. It's just really weird.

  • Boy:has a serious asthma attack, is dying
    Paramedics:let's make a video 'bout this!:D

  • In the Northeastern US here…they gave me the shot first and then the mask. I have albuterol at home and a nebuliser if I need it.

  • I almost died a few times when I was around his age. All they had then was the inhalers. It was cat dander that was setting it off. Deadly asthma, but also straightforward to avoid the dander.

  • Asthma sucks ball man I have it myself and it has been such a bother (mine isn’t severe) but spring time is the worst time of the year for us… steroids are like our best friends

  • Young people who grow up suffering from asthma attacks may develop PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) which can adversely affect their futures in many ways. It would be wise to keep this in mind should problems occur eventually which may require therapy.

  • my family isn't aware that asthma can be this serious. i just got a nebulizer this week. but my past asthma attacks lasted for 6-8 hours. because they will only give me water and confront me about how much many they spent on my check up :<

  • I just had my first asthma attack today, it wasn't as bad as this but I couldn't breathe with my mouth and my nose just wouldn't do it I thought I was going to die I felt like fainting but they sent me to the school nurse I washed my face and drank water.

  • Being short of breath would make any man scared as hell. I would choose to die by hunger that such attack.

  • i had this happening to me when i was 4 years old its so scary to be an asthmatic like you know it can happen anytime

  • This happened to me twice and doctors said I could die the second time

    I’m dead talking in spirit
    Uhahhhha…. I’m awake
    Omg it was just a dream 🥵

  • Asthma is a Over active immune system (autoimmune diseases)

    BEST solution is to BALANCE the IMMUNE SYSTEM

  • I am sad because those people died but I didn’t die I have asthma but I’m not dying and I went to hospital was like a little kid but I didn’t die

  • I just found out I have asthma today. I got my prescription for a inhaler right away. It seems to be helping so far. It sucks cause sometimes I can’t breathe at night and I feel like crying

  • Eat more fruits and vegetables.
    Drink water more and other liquid.
    Take ample sun shine. God sun is our life giver. Worship God sun.
    Walk more.Take deep breathing.
    Never eat junk ,oily,fried foods.
    Avoid eating meat.
    You can protect yourselves from cancer and heart disease.
    Great Indian vegetarians food.

  • I got asthma in my late 20’s because of GERD, it literally feels like someone is squeezing with both hands your traquea and esophagus! It’s one of the most horrible feelings I’ve experience!

  • If you have asthma blame pollution and the food you eat.
    Processed food is killing you, its full of inflamitaries and allergens. Everything you by from the store is 70% processed food.
    Corporations are feeding you crap.
    Eat fresh, eat natural anti inflammatory foods.

  • Thank goodness for a great health care system. Couldn't count on this level of care in the US, particularly if one doesn't have private insurance.

  • Whenever you see a person having an asthma attack, or if you are having one, try to keep the person calm and tell him/her to breath through the nose; the first instinct while having an attack is to try to breath through the mouth, but that doesn't work! It's not going to be easy to breath as well, but through the nose is better. If no other medications are available, try eucalyptus oil, it'll help (be careful with this oil on children). These measures will help until you can give proper medication or take the person to a hospital.

  • I remember having a serious asthma attack when I was 4 and nearly died cause my grandma was babysitting me and she didn't know much English and I could barely speak French plus I couldn't speak at all from my asthma attack, so thanks for smoking mom and dad, you nearly killed me by smoking and still smoke today.

  • Not sure how I got to this strange part of YouTube, but i have to say; lol and double lol. Of course he's not going to die. There is no such thing as Asthma as it is a psychological ailment and as such does not need any treatment, the guy needs to be told this so those plastic aerosols are not needed.

  • Be brave guys, CHILDHOOD ASTHMA CAN go away if you go to doctor regularly (mine completely disappeared when I was 6 y/o, I'm 18 now). I do smoke now, for about a year and I DO NOT FEEL PROBLEMS AT ALL, my lungs are good. It's all laying in the person's METABOLISM and how the body reacts to different triggers.

  • At least he made it. That's most important. We also should not take the ability to breathe normally for granted after watching this video.

    One like= One prayer for him? Pls? I had to ask my friends for help to make this comment :3

  • Please take people with asthma seriously. It's scary for us because we don't know when this will happen to us, if ever, and most people don't know how to handle people who are having an attack. Thankfully I've never had an asthma attack, but it's one of my biggest fears. Some days I don't have my inhaler because I was late on telling my parents I need a refill, and it's stressful not being able to breathe normally during that time. So take asthmatics seriously, and if you know someone who is asthmatic, just know how to handle an attack if there is one.

  • This made me feel like I can't fucking breathe
    I had asthma when I was a lil kid and would get asthma attacks often but fortunately I don't have them now, don't even remember what it feels like

  • Medical treatment of asthma has for decades meant more asthma (asthma paradox) and yoga is more relevant.

    I suffered through taking asthma medication for some time and am now decidedly more healthy after curing my asthma. So search for “breathe through the nose weitzberg” to find instructions and a more scientific account of asthma than that of doctors leaving the cause of asthma unexplained. A crucial point about curing asthma is developing normal belly breathing.

  • I wished to die for so many many times before than to suffer like this because every time you had this type of attack its being close to death always

  • I've been on those inhalers when I was younger but i've managed to control my asthma as i've aged. You need to find your triggers and avoid them.

  • For a few days now I have been sick, I have a pretty strong immune system, but this morning I was just lying in my bed, and all of a sudden I couldn't breathe at all I was struggling to breathe, it lasted at least 30 seconds, then my breathing went back to normal again, I never experienced something like this, should I be concern?

  • I commented so long ago I can help , but No1 reach out to me. So what's the point of this video is you are not asking for help

  • I've had an asthma attack before, I had to get rushed to the hospital. I couldn't breathe well. If I tried to breathe in I would immediately cough and I would sound like a barking seal.
    I still have asthma attacks to this day and it's so bad inhalers can't even help me.
