Suffocation - unpleasant, sometimes painful condition, which is often accompanied by the fear of death.
The medical term for choking is the word "apnea".
This condition is most often speaks of dangerous diseases.
Suffocation - sign of the disease
Choking is typical for a number of critical stepsdiseases affecting the cardiac system, the lungs and airways. In the case of pulmonary diseases asthma caused by that penetration of oxygen into the blood is reduced or terminated, and airway broken.
For example, an asthma attack begins with a sharpfeeling short of breath. Man starts to choke. Breath - a necessary requirement for human life, so at the slightest violations of his body begins to signal the danger, giving rise to panic and acute fear of death. It should be noted that outside of acute attacks of asthma breathing problems in human patients was observed. Asthma can be a heart, it occurs due to a problem with a small circle of blood circulation may be bronchial, it causes acute in violation of patency of the bronchi, or mixed, which develops due to illness infarction or abnormalities of the bronchial tree.
Cases and non-allergenic asthma attacks, however, they occur much less frequently. In such a case of asphyxia attack causes brain injury or severe hormonal disorders.
Choking can signal an asthmaticattack any of these species. Bronchial asthma is directly related to airway obstruction and bronchial tubes gipeaktivnostyu. The cause choking (and asthma) is an inhaled allergen. The response of the organism, which is trying to get rid of unwanted materials or keep them on leads to a spasm of the large and small bronchi, which causes choking.
Choking can be caused by pneumothorax. This is a condition in which a small amount of air in the pleural cavity accumulates due to leakage problems or damage to the lungs of the chest wall. Spontaneous pneumothorax is small can disappear on their own. But severe pneumothorax can potentially cause folding of the lung, which can lead to serious consequences. In this case, medical intervention is required.
If you have a asthma attack, call an ambulance. Try not to panic.
The sharp choking may indicate a heart attackinfarction. It occurs when a blood clot to tear falls into the coronary arteries, clogging them. Blood from an artery so no longer flow to the heart, depriving it of oxygen replenishment. Without it, the heart land can live only half an hour, after which there is the death of myocardial cells, which are in place then there is scarring, which prevents heart muscles function properly, impeding or slowing down the transfer of blood (and oxygen) in the body.
