A Patient’s Introduction to Asthma
Asthma is a chronic and long-term condition that affects the airways of the lungs and can be managed but not cured. If you were recently diagnosed with this condition by an asthma doctor, then watch this video to learn more.
Asthma causes the person’s airways to swell and become more narrow, resulting in breathing difficulties and wheezing. When a person has asthma, his or her airways are easily irritated by asthmatic triggers. Some examples of common asthmatic triggers include pollen, dust mites, cigarette smoke, chest infections, and animal dander.
