Exercise for asthma patients

Being physically energetic promotes a healthy life. However, people suffering from asthma often get out of exercise because doing exercise can lead to attacks. You can call this type of asthma as Exercise Induced Asthma (EIA). Patients can control its symptoms by coming after a useful management program and should stop physical activities.

1. Advantages of exercise

Just as people have a lot of benefits from sports, asthma patients can have too:

– Strengthen bones and muscles

– Keep advised body weight

– Advance the body’s immune system

Asthma patients can do exercise to improve physical and mental health. That produces the states of being healthy, comfortable and happy. Except for keeping the suitable body weight, exercise can help prevent harmful conditions, such as cardiovascular diseases, raised blood cholesterol level, diabetes, and raised blood pressure and other.

2. The types of exercise

Certain factors can cause asthma attacks if patients don’t do actions exactly. These parts are the duration, intensity, and type. In general, the intensity of an activity lasts about six minutes in the dust, dry, and cold air could cause an attack.

Asthma patients feel comfortable with exercises in a short period of doing, such as wrestling, volleyball, baseball, walking, aerobics, cycling, and biking. They also can swim in a moist and warm environment, which make muscles exercise effectively, lose weight and build endurance.

Patients should not do sports which need a long period of playing in too low or high temperatures, such as running, soccer, ice skating, ice hockey and others.

Experts suggest a half hour of exercise in one week. However, it’s the best to follow recommendations of their private doctors.

Before beginning an exercise plan, patients must know following factors:

+ Keeping their asthma limited. If it’s unlimited, doing exercise could be very dangerous.

+ Once many people play outdoor sports or doing at gyms, it’s necessary to keep themselves safe from asthma attacks including smog, dust, pollen and others.

+ Build an appropriate exercise plan following the instruction of doctors.

+ Patients should be on medication according to the doctor’s recommendation. If they have breathing problems, it’s necessary to prepare tubes for inhaling medicine into their lungs or have bronchodilators fifteen minutes prior to exercising.

+ Warm up before start any exercise. It’s also important to cool down after finishing a lesson. Don’t stop the activity suddenly. Decrease the number of movements gradually.

If patients experience EIA, they should:

+ Stop the exercise immediately

+ Follow an asthma exercise plan as suggested by their doctor which normally relates a quick medication of breathing relief

+ Remain in 4 to 5 minutes

+ They can resume exercise if symptoms don’t occur again. If they have this again, they must stop activity immediately during the day. It’s also recommended to have a meet with their doctor.

There are a lot of benefits for the physical and mental health if asthma patient practice exercises correctly. Thus, they should maintain appropriate activities to reduce asthma pains and other symptoms instead of avoiding exercise.

Test 5 best semi-professional chainsaws with reviews

Here are the reviews for specific chainsaw products.

Stihl MS 210 C-BE

ms201cePower: 35.2 cc

Weight: 10.6 lb (4.8 kg)

Length: 16 inches (37.5 cm)

Noise: 102 dB

Price: $ 290

Advantages: We are old school loggers. We like to start our saws with a jerk. So it took us a few tries before succeeding with the starting system “Stihl 2 Easy Start System.” And besides, we accidentally drowned the engine. Rather than jerk the rope, you should slowly pull the starter handle, which was the spring tension mechanism and then releases it. Once we got used to it, we have come to love this gadget with the choke (choke) integrated switch “On / Off” and the throttle lock. Although classified for casual users, this saw for works like a professional product.

Disadvantages: It is a little expensive.

Rating: 5/5

Husqvarna 450



Power: 38.2 cc

Weight: 10.4 lb (4.72 kg)

Length: 16 inches (37.5 cm)

Noise: 103 dB

Price: $ 220

Advantages: Easy to start. A reasonably fast saw with good insulation against the vibration of the handle. Slightly slower than the Solo or Poulan saw, and almost equal to the Stihl. The best chainsaw to buy.

Disadvantages: Not much to say.

Only that you need a screwdriver to remove the air cleaner cover and the spark plug. You can potentially lose the screw.

Rating: 5/5

Poulan PP3516AVX


Poulan PP3516AVX

Power: 35 cc

Weight: 13.5 lb (6.2 kg)

Length: 16 inches (37.5 cm)

Noise: 103 dB

Price: $ 140


Advantages: The Poulan Saw offers great cutting speed and power for a saw to such a low price. It cuts almost as fast as Solo, the fastest of the group. It is possible to stretch the chain without tools, making its operation very easy. It is to fold the handle on the clamping and rotating.

Disadvantages: The Poulan has frequently arrested but we can adjust with the idle speed. Given the way the saw worked well, we think this is a flaw that could be corrected under the warranty.

Rating: 3/5

 Solo 636


soloPower: 36.3 cc

Weight: 9.3 lb (4.2 kg)

Length: 16 inches (37.5 cm)

Noise: 100 dB

Price: $ 305

Advantages: A compression release button is usually located on large two-stroke engines, but Solo has one, which contributes to its fast and safe start. The saw offers other simple functions like a key that works on the head bolts and spark plug. Although the filter cover and the spark plug require a screwdriver, the screw is captive and cannot be lost. Solo turned out to be our fastest saw, while being light and well balanced. It is perfect for limbing and trail maintenance.

Disadvantages: the designers of the saw were badly drawn, the starter grip that is too small. Gasoline and oil caps are also poorly designed. They are distracting details for such an expensive product.

Rating: 4/5

McCulloch MCC1635AK

mcculloch-cs-420t-5ccf832c_50a346dc31c34Power: 35 cc

Power: 12.3 lb (5.6 kg)

Length: 16 inches (37.5 cm)

Noise: 103 dB

Price: $ 140

Advantages: Our preference is always for professional equipment, but it is always good to know that you can get a good price for a chainsaw. McCulloch is clearly designed for light work and commuter wood chores. It worked reasonably well, except for the big logs. We also liked its ease of access to the air filter and the large starter handle.

Disadvantages: It would do well to make the operation of the least recalcitrant choke and improve the quality of the air filter material. It should also improve the sustainability of this model.

Rating: 2/5
