Asthma and its triggers!!!

HELLO!!!!! and welcome to my project page!!!!!

Heya this is just a bit about my project. I am doing my project on Asthma.!!!I chose asthma because my dad has asthma and I think it is very interesting,

SO what is Asthma???(background info)

Asthma is the narrowing of the breathing tubes causing shortness of breathe. People with asthma become short of breathe when they have an asthma attack because not enough air is getting to there lungs through the breathing tubes.The symptoms of asthma are shortness of breathe, particularly when doing exercise. a stuffy or runny nose and itchy tongue or chin. Also trouble sleeping and dark circles under the eyes. Also the typical wheezing sound made by asthma sufferers is the air struggling to get through the narrowed breathig tubes

My Aim!

My aim in this project is to explore the links between inherited asthma sufferers and the asthma triggers they have. I want to find out whether people who have inherited their parents asthma have also inherited their parents triggers.

MY OBJECTIVES

My objectives of this project are:

To carry out a survey of local people with asthma to explore patterns of asthma and the triggers,

to describe the link between inherited asthma and asthma triggers

to analyse the different asthma triggers that different people experience and look at the variation between people.

MY METHODS

my methods of exploring my ideas will be to carry out a survey of local people to see if they have asthma and have inherited their parents triggers and what there triggers are

to research other peoples work and see what research has already been done on these topics.

to recruit people for my survey by sending out letters to everyone at my school to request parental consent
