Asthma

Asthma is a common respiratory illness affecting millions of children and adults each year. The symptoms of asthma include;

  • Wheezing
  • Feeling short of breath
  • Frequent coughing
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chest tightness
  • Breathing faster than usual

These symptoms are usually caused by constriction of the smaller airways, airway inflammation, and mucous build up in the airways.
Asthma can be controlled with medication but unfortunately there is no cure for asthma. The treatment goals include living an active normal life and preventing chronic long term symptoms from asthma. The two main therapies for asthma control include bronchodilators and anti-inflammatories.
