Asthma is a common chronic respiratory condition that affects the airways, making it difficult to breathe. Symptoms of asthma include coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. Asthma can be diagnosed through a physical exam, a review of your medical history, and tests such as spirometry and peak flow. Treatment for asthma includes the use of medications such as inhalers and nebulizers, lifestyle changes, and avoiding triggers. Long-term management involves controlling symptoms and improving quality of life.
