asthma attack s/sx wheezing, coughing, chest tightness/pain, shortness of breath, difficulty w/ expiration, increased respiration w/ intercostals/abdominals
asthma water loss theory loss of water in the epithelium of the airway changes the ph, temp and osmolarity causing bronchoconstriction.
asthma heat exchange theory higher minute ventilation=more air that needs warming=cooler airway. rapid rewarming causes EIA and bronchospasm
