Management of Asthma in Adults

Asthma is a common, non-communicable, and variable chronic disease that can cause episodic or persistent respiratory symptoms (such as shortness of breath, wheezing, chest tightness, and cough), as well as airflow limitation, the latter of which is brought on by bronchoconstriction, airway wall thickening, and increased mucus. It affects as many as 235 million people worldwide and is frequently misdiagnosed and undertreated, especially in low- and middle-income nations. Asthma is a chronic condition that requires continuing, comprehensive care aimed at reducing symptom burden (i.e., excellent symptom management while maintaining normal activity levels) and reducing the probability of adverse events such exacerbations, fixed airflow restriction, and side effects from therapy.
