    The NCAA Season 86 MVP and Finals MVP succumbed to asthma attack, media reports said. He was 33.

    Daniel celebrated Christmas with his former San Beda teammates Anthony and David Semerad before he died.

    Why does asthma kill?

    Asthma is one of the most common illnesses prevalent worldwide. Yet, it is the most under-estimated sickness.

    According to Mayo Clinic: “During an asthma attack, also called an asthma exacerbation, the airways become swollen and inflamed. The muscles around the airways contract and the airways produce extra mucus, causing the breathing (bronchial) tubes to narrow.”

    In layman’s terms, shortness of loss of breath is the culprit.

    Many people do not recognize that they are suffering from asthma until they seek a medical opinion from a physician. But how do we know if it is asthma?

    Here are the common symptoms of an asthma attack and surprisingly, it’s more than shortness of breath:

    1. Shortness of breath

    2. Tightness in the chest or mile to severe chest pain

    3. Wheezing or whistling sound when exhaling

    4. Extreme coughing

    5. Trouble in sleeping due to coughing and shortness of breath

    What do we do when a household member is being attacked by asthma? Here is the first aid:

    1. Sit the patient in an upright and very comfortable position. Do not lay the person down as it will worsen the breathing difficulty

    2. Remove or loosen the patient’s all tight clothing

    3. Give the patient proper ventilation or do not crowd near the patient

    4. Use an asthma inhaler if necessary. One puff per minute until breathing goes back to normal

    5. If shortness of breathing becomes more persistent, rush the patient to the nearest clinic or hospital

    Asthma attacks almost everyone, regardless if a person is a health buff or not. Sudan Daniel, an athlete, and health buff is an example that asthma should not be taken lightly as it can attack everyone.

    Rest in Peace, ‘Superman’.
