In America, more than 23 million people – including 6.8 million children – suffer from asthma. Whether you’re one of these people, or a parent of a child with asthma, you know all too well the effects this respiratory disease can have on everyday life.
Asthma causes airways to narrow, swell and produce extra mucus, causing breathing difficulties. The most common asthma signs and symptoms are coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
For some people, asthma symptoms are simply an inconvenience. For others, they're a major problem that interferes with daily activities – including the disruption of a good night’s sleep. In the worst cases, sufferers of severe asthma may be at risk of a life-threatening asthma attack.
There is no known cure for asthma. There are, however, a number of ways to reduce the triggers of the symptoms. One of the most effective among these is removing airborne contaminants from the air in your home and maintaining better overall indoor air quality. This can help reduce both the frequency and severity of symptoms and help sufferers – especially children – sleep better at night.
That’s where HEPAir X100 can help.
