What Is asthma?

Asthma is a chronic disease of the airways. In people susceptible to asthma, this causes the airways to narrow periodically. This narrowing, in turn, produces wheezing and breathlessness that sometimes causes the patient to gasp for air. Obstruction to air flow either stops spontaneously or responds to a wide range of treatments, but continuing makes the airways hyper-responsive to stimuli such as cold air, exercise , dust mites, pollutants in the air, and even stress and anxiety.
