Can a person with asthma die from a heart attack?

Postby hurly » Sat May 06, 2006 5:54 am

Is there a connection with asthma and heart attacks?
Or is it drinking + smoking more related to hear attacks?

I haven't heard about a connection between asthma and heart attacks.
It matters not how strait the gate
How charged with punishment the scroll
I am the Master of my fate
I am the Captain of my soul.

Medication for asthma can be a trigger for arrhythmia, can be a trigger for a moving atheroma plaque, ... . This medication is similar with the adrenergic hormones despite the fact that in the last decades asthmatics started to take drugs who not damage to much the heart and are more active for lungs.
