About asthma and COPD

Asthma and other lung conditions such as COPD affect the small tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs, making it difficult to breathe.

What is asthma?

Asthma is a chronic medical condition that affects the airways leading to the lungs, causing them to become inflamed and narrower. When the airways are inflamed, it makes it harder to breathe in and out.

Asthma affects people of all ages, though it often starts at childhood. Wheezing, coughing, difficulty breathing and tightness in the chest are common symptoms of asthma, ranging from mild to severe. Certain things can trigger asthma attacks and worsen symptoms, such as cold air, respiratory infections, exercise or allergies.

What is COPD?

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that is typically caused by long-term exposure to irritating gases or cigarette smoke. Emphysema and chronic bronchitis are the two most common conditions that contribute to COPD.

Symptoms of COPD include difficulty breathing, wheezing, chronic coughing and mucus production. COPD can be a progressive disease that gets worse over time, but is manageable with treatment.

It is important to avoid smoking to prevent development of COPD and also disease progression.

What are my asthma and COPD treatment options?

There are a number of medications that are used to effectively treat asthma and lung disease, both preventative and acute treatment at the time of attack. These treatments are aimed at minimising symptoms and improving overall lung function. Good control of your condition is considered to be when reliever medication is used very minimally or not at all.

In order to receive treatment for asthma or COPD through Rosemary, you must already have seen a doctor, received a diagnosis and be prescribed your regular treatment by your general practitioner. An online doctor in Australia on our platform can help you access your treatment and is available to chat online about your progress whenever you need.
