Thunderstorms can trigger asthma attacks in some individualsAug 18, 2023
Thunderstorms can trigger asthma attacks in susceptible individuals. During a storm, strong winds carry pollen grains, mold spores, and other allergens into the air. When inhaled, these particles can irritate the airways, leading to asthma symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, and difficulty breathing. The rapid changes in atmospheric pressure and humidity during thunderstorms may also contribute to airway inflammation and constriction. This phenomenon, known as thunderstorm asthma, can affect both children and adults who have a history of asthma or other respiratory conditions. It is important for individuals with asthma to be aware of this potential trigger and take appropriate precautions, such as staying indoors during storms and keeping rescue medications readily available.
