4. Urgency Inflammation In Asthma
Inflammation, or swelling, is a normal response of the body against injury or infection. Increased blood flow in the affected spot and go invade cells and avoid the problems that attack. The healing process has begun. In general, when the healing is complete, the inflammation subsided. Sometimes, the healing process has left a scar. The main problem in asthma, however, is that inflammation can not be solved completely by itself. In the short term, this led to the recurrence of asthma attacks.
In the long term, it can lead to persistent thickening of the bronchial walls, called "deformation" of the airways (airway "remodeling). If this occurs, the narrowing of the bronchial tubes may become irreversible and responsiveness the poor to medicines. accordingly, the goals of asthma treatment are: (1) in the short term, to control airway inflammation, thereby reducing the reactivity of the airways, and (2) in the long term, to prevent changes in channel form the airways.
Signs of setting prevention and treatment of asthma is airway inflammation. Control of inflammation seems to also prevent changes in airway shape and thus preventing the loss of the settling of lung function.
Various triggers in susceptible individuals resulting in inflammation of the airways. Prolonged inflammation induces a state Hiperreaktivitas airways, which can lead to transformation of the airways (airway remodeling) unless treated effectively.
