Asthma is a chronic disease that makes breathing difficult due to broncho-constriction (tightening of the muscles around the airways) and inflammation (swelling) of the bronchial tubes. It is one of the most common chronic diseases in the United States. Asthma episodes can be triggered by many factors including smoke, dust, mold, air pollution, chemical irritants, exercise and others.
