Asthma

Asthma is a common, chronic disease in which the airways are easily irritated, becoming inflamed and constricted, making breathing a struggle. It affects people of all ages, and when poorly controlled often leads to unplanned visits to the doctor or hospital, absences from school or work, and a reduced ability to participate in day-to-day activities. (RespTrec, 2019)

Patients can receive treatment and make lifestyle changes that will slow the progression of the disease, can reduce or eliminate some symptoms, and improve the quality of their lives.
