Course Summary

Asthma is a condition in which the airways narrow and swell and produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. It is not clear why some people get asthma and others do not, but it is probably due to a combination of environmental factors that trigger asthma, and may include genetic or other risk factors. The symptoms and current trends in the treatment of asthma are discussed.
