Asthma, or variable airflow obstruction, is recognized from a pattern of one or more characteristic symptoms—including wheeze, cough, chest tightness, and dyspnea—and is best confirmed by the evidence of variable or reversible airflow obstruction accompanying symptoms.
Don't assume that every “asthmatic” with dyspnea is having an asthma exacerbation. AutoPEEP will make it more difficult for the patient to trigger the ventilator (in order to trigger a breath, they need to overcome the autoPEEP).
