Have you ever been stopped dead in your tracks, with shortness of breath or tightness in your chest? This scenario might seem extreme; however, for the eight percent of the U.S. population with asthma, it's a daily reality. When an asthma attack starts, airways of the lungs will swell and narrow, making it difficult to breathe. Symptoms of an attack include wheezing, coughing fits, rapid breathing, difficulty speaking, or even anxiety or panic. Asthma attacks can range in length and severity, with some attacks requiring immediate medical assistance. For this reason, it is important to consider your asthma triggers and how an air purifier may help.
Managing your asthma with an air purifier may not seem like a natural connection. However, when you consider the amount of asthma attacks triggered by airborne irritants like mold, pollen and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), the relationship makes sense. An Alen Air Purifier can remove up to 99 percent of airborne pollutants, eliminating them from your indoor air. Read more to see how an air purifier is an option to give you more control of your asthma and a great compliment to your asthma care regimen.
Asthma attacks are caused by a range of things, including a sudden change in weather or exercise. However, many experience asthma attacks as a result of irritants or pollutants found in the air. Over 80 percent of people with asthma also have allergies, with attacks triggered by allergens like tree, grass and weed pollens, mold, animal dander, dust mites, VOCs and cockroach droppings. While a majority these are outdoor allergens and pollutants, many enter our homes, triggering attacks in asthma sufferers. Adding an air purifier for asthma to your home can eliminate these particles, giving you control of not only your asthma, but your allergies as well. Removing these particles with an air purifier provides added protection from asthma attacks.
