ASTHMA

What is Asthma?
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects your airways or bronchial tubes within the lungs. The bronchial tubes are responsible to carry air in and out of your lungs. With asthma, the inside of the airways become irritated, and swollen (inflamed). Asthma causes the lungs to be “super sensitive” to irritants, such as perfumes, aerosols, smoke and cold air. Irritants that cause issues with breathing are called “triggers”. When an asthma patient is exposed to triggers, they may have what is called an asthma attack. During an asthma attack the airways swell, which makes it difficult to get air in and out of the airways. This can cause symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, tightness in the chest and difficulty breathing. During an asthma attack one may need to be seen by a doctor, if the medication or inhalers that are prescribed do not relieve the symptoms. * [Type a quote from the document or the summary of an interesting point.

Purpose of Brochure

...Purpose of Brochure The main purpose of the brochure is to inform potential customers about the business, and what sorts of products they sell. Panel 1 – This panel is essentially the most significant as it is the first part of the brochure that potential customers will see. Panel 1 contains a small amount of text, with four images and a bold, eye-catching WordArt title. I feel that it is purposeful because the images represent the products which are sold within the shop, and the text offers a brief overview of what sorts of products the shop sells. Panel 2 – The purpose of Panel 2 is to provide the potential customers with details on how to contact the business, should they want to. It contains the address of the business, an email address, and a telephone/fax number. There is also a map of Llangollen showing where ‘Cottage Cards and Crafts’ is located. Panel 3 – It informs potential customers about the business, with minimal text so that it does not look overloaded with text (which could put people off viewing it). It also contains 3 images of Llangollen within panel 3, which are purposeful because ‘Cottage Cards & Crafts’ is located in Llangollen. Panel 4 – The purpose of panel 4 is to convey a small amount of information about lovespoons. There is also 2 images on that panel; one of lovespoons and one of a welsh dragon. They are purposeful because ‘Cottage Cards & Crafts’ sell welsh lovespoons. Panel 5 - This panel contains a combination of text and......
