General Asthma Information

Asthma is a chronic disease of the airways that involves both inflammation and narrowing. The exact cause is unknown, but likely involves a genetic predisposition as well as environmental factors. Symptoms of asthma include cough, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and difficulty breathing. Common asthma triggers include respiratory illnesses, exercise, strong displays of emotion, cold air, irritants like cigarette smoke or perfume, and allergens like pollen, dust, or animal dander. There is no cure for asthma, but symptoms can be managed with daily controller medications (such as inhaled corticosteroids or leukotriene blockers) and rescue medications (such as albuterol or levalbuterol).
