asthma definition and meaning

What is "asthma"?

Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways in the lungs. This inflammation can cause symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing, and chest tightness. Asthma symptoms can vary in intensity and frequency, and they may be triggered by factors like allergens, exercise, cold air, or respiratory infections. While there is no cure for asthma, it can be managed effectively with medications such as inhalers to control inflammation and open the airways, as well as by avoiding triggers and adopting a healthy lifestyle. Regular monitoring and treatment can help people with asthma lead active and fulfilling lives while minimizing the risk of flare-ups and complications.
