It is advisable to understand and be aware of your respiratory diseases to undertake a proper treatment. As per the report on the Global Burden of Asthma, “Globally asthma affects an estimated 300 million people. Approximately 47 to 75 per cent of them report nocturnal symptoms.”

Nocturnal asthma is a prolonged lung disease which is evident during the night. People who experience short-breathe called dyspnea or coughing at night might still return to sleep, therefore the symptoms of nocturnal asthma are unidentified and understood as a normal asthma attack.

According to a study patient with nocturnal asthma, unlike asthmatics without nocturnal asthma symptoms, the capillary blood volume significantly increases during sleep by 16 percent. The intensity of the symptoms of asthma depends upon the exposure to the triggers. Increasing episodes of coughing or chest-tightness at night might lead to frequent emergency room visits, hospitalisation and in few cases death.
