Night Asthma

Night asthma with such symptoms as compression in breast, tussis and a goose breathing, dyspnea can interrupt sleep or absolutely does not allow falling asleep. The person cannot have a good rest; the whole next day feels tired and flaccid.

Symptoms of asthma are hundred times more severe when become aggravated in the sleeping person. The night goose breathing, breathing disorder and tussis are common symptoms potentially life-threatening. Many people underestimate gravity of night asthma.

The majority of the fatal cases caused by complications of asthma occur at night. Attacks of night asthma cause serious sleep problems so not getting enough sleep, fatigue, drowsiness, irritability in the afternoon. The patient’s life generally worsens; control over symptoms becomes complicated in the afternoon.

There is a set of hypotheses explaining why exacerbations of asthma arise at night. It is close contact of the sleeping person to allergens, strong cooling of respiratory tracts during sleep, night discharge of hormones, body horizontal position. The dream itself changes work of lungs and respiratory tracts.

Also an excessive myxopoiesis and sinusitis are referred to the causes of night asthma. During sleep respiratory tracts are narrowed, slime blocks them. It causes tussis during sleep provoking larger narrowing of respiratory tracts. Flow from nasal sinuses at body horizontal position can also cause an asthmatic attack in sensitive respiratory tracts.

Irrespective of whether in the afternoon or at night the patient sleeps, the exacerbation of night asthma happens only during sleep. The asthmatics working at nights may suffer from attacks in the afternoon when they sleep. Indicators of lungs capacity for worsen in 4-6 hours later after dream coming.
