Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that affects an average of 26 million Americans. People who suffer from asthma often experience shortness of breath and difficulty breathing. The air passages and airways that deliver oxygen to the lungs become inflamed as a result of which these passages and airways become narrower. This, in turn, obstructs airflow to the lungs and patients experience symptoms like coughing, wheezing, and difficulty breathing.
People who suffer from asthma often have to refrain from engaging in activities that are too physically demanding. Asthma is frequently found in children and can disrupt their daily lives.
