Stress can trigger short term and long term responses in asthmatics

Stressful events in a childís life can increase the incidence of asthma attacks. Stressful events can include moving, births, deaths, departures, illness, hospital visits, separations and family breakups. Research results showed that the likelihood of an asthma attack increased fourfold in the first two days after a stressful event. The risk then doubled again 5 to 7 weeks after the event. Thus there is an immediate and delayed asthmatic reaction to a stressful event.
