Air Purifier For Asthma


Asthma is the disease caused by airway obstruction. It creates obstruction in the airway passage and causes shortness of breath, chest pain, chest tightness, and wheezing, which sometimes leads to fatal condition. Preventative measures should be taken into account for prevention of asthma.

Asthma can be caused by many aggravating or triggering factors including weather, exercise, smoke, dust, seasonal allergens, pets, environmental conditions, pollens, ragweed, dust mites, and many more. These triggers vary in different people.

Asthma can be cured by many different ways. It can be preceded by medications, anti-inflammatories, herbal medications, yoga, exercise, bronchodilators, and inhalers. The cure of asthma depends on one's way of living. Inhalers are the fast relieving agents for asthma flares.

Lifestyle configurations also prevent asthma to some degree. Asthma is caused by the pollutants in the air, which can be removed by air purifiers. Asthma air purifier collects the hair of pets, allergens, particles, and dust in the air and makes it allergen free by filtering the air. It makes the air very good and of better quality than before to breath so increasing the life span of the asthma patients. It cleans the air by filtrating it and it can filter the dust, fumes, chemical pollutants, and other pollutants in the air. It makes the air fresh and clean.

Air purifiers are of different types and they used different air purification methods including electrostatic charges and ionizers, mechanical filters, absorbs like charcoal. The other different types of air purifiers are Austin Air Purifier, Allerair, BlueAir, Whirlpool, Friedrich, and IQAir. Among them, HEPA filters remove about 99.97% of the pollutants and in return give the fresh and pure air. HEPA filter technology is the best and the most effective technology, but the filters should be changed periodically. Electrostatic system by Friedrich cleans the air with charged plates. The only cost for using this system is one should wash the plates periodically. The above two technologies removed the particles but they do not remove the odor or chemicals.

The basic function of the IQAir purifier is it closes the air that enters into the system and then it filters the air that is sealed. It removes the basic pollutants making the air clean for asthma patients. BlueAir functions with a line of air purifiers making the air fresh and safe for the asthmatics. For making the air free of tobacco smoke, option to add another filter is provided. Allerair cleans the indoor air. It is made up of HEPA filters. The Austin air purifier also works on the same principle.

Thus air purifiers also contribute their portion in preventing asthmatic symptoms in asthma patients by making the air fresh and allergen-free.
