WILDFIRES EFFECTS ON BREATHING

SEPTEMBER 4, 2012

“The decrease in ambient air quality associated with the wildfires in our mountains has brought on runny noses, coughing and eye irritation in many people in our community,” says Anders Persson, PHD, MD, of Bozeman Deaconess Pulmonary Disease/Critical Care. “The smoke can induce bronchospasm in people with asthma or COPD, making it more difficult to breathe and sometimes requiring additional doses of medications to improve breathing.  For those people who respond to the smoke with bronchospasm, it is advisable to avoid exertion in the smoky air, and if exercising to seek an exercise environment with better quality air.  It is recommended to stay indoors on when the air quality is especially poor.“
