What Is Asthma?

It is estimated that 22 million Americans have asthma, a chronic inflammation of the lungs’ airways. The inflammation narrows the air passages making breathing cumbersome as there is less space for air to flow freely. The most common symptoms of asthma are shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing and a tight sensation in the chest.

There are four different kinds of asthma that are diagnosed according to the frequency of attacks, the measurement of the amount and/or flow of air that can be inhaled and exhaled.

The four kinds:

  • Intermittent Asthma - which occurs less than once a month
  • mild persistent - which occurs one to six time each week
  • moderate persistent - which occurs daily
  • severe persistent - which occurs daily in addition nighttime attacks.
