Answer

For patient education resources, visit the Asthma Center. Also, see the patient education articles Asthma, Asthma FAQs, Asthma in Children, and Understanding Asthma Medications.

A patient education video of an overview of asthma is provided below.

Asthma is characterized by chronic inflammation and asthma exacerbations, where an environmental trigger initiates inflammation, which makes it difficult to breathe. This video covers the pathophysiology of asthma, signs and symptoms, types, and treatment.
